Washington WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for tonight’s matchup with the Giants. Jackson’s not close to 100%, but he’ll tough it out against the divisional foe. The 27-year-old belongs in fantasy lineups as an upside WR2.

The Redskins listed WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Giants.  He played 62 snaps last weekend, avoided a setback and put in 3 limited practices this week.  The short week doesn't help his cause, but he's fully expected to play tomorrow night.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. HC Jay Gruden suggested on Friday that Jackson’s snaps will be limited. That, plus the chance of re-injury, makes him an extremely risky WR3.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden admitted that WR DeSean Jackson's snaps will be limited if he plays against the Eagles on Sunday.  "He won't get 80 plays," Gruden said. "May get 20-30."  That's not enough to make D-Jax a quality fantasy play.  He should be on benches for Week 3.  WRs Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant should pick up extra snaps on Sunday, but look for WR Pierre Garcon and TE Niles Paul to lead the way in targets.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Eagles.  He put in a limited practice on Friday, which HC Jon Gruden called "a step in a positive direction."  Gruden added that D-Jax will be re-evaluated on Saturday and again prior to Sunday's game.  It sounds like he's a game-time decision.  The good news is that Redskins-Eagles kicks off at 1 pm ET, so we'll know Jackson's status by noon.  He'll be a risk/reward WR3 if active.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday.  He at least did some individual work off to the side.  HC Jay Gruden expects to get a "good look" at D-Jax tomorrow and suggested that he could be a game-time decision.  Jackson figures to push to play against his old Eagles teammates this weekend.

Washington WR DeSean Jackson left in the 1st quarter of the game against the Jaguars after hurting his left shoulder.  The Jacksonville DB reached in to knock away a deep pass and then fell on him, with Jackson's shoulder hitting the ground first.  It was the 2nd time Washington had targeted Jackson deep within the 1st 3 drives.  We'll keep an eye on his status.  Andre Roberts steps up to the #2 WR role with Jackson out.

Update: Jackson has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Washington WR DeSean Jackson put in a full practice Monday after missing the preseason opener with a twisted ankle.  Jackson got hurt the day before the game when he got stepped on during the walkthrough, but he told reporters Monday that he'll be "flying around" in the 2nd exhibition.  Don't consider this an issue any longer unless Jackson endures some further setback.

The Washington Post's Mark Bullock believes DeSean Jackson will play the Z receiver role in HC Jay Gruden's offense.  That's the position A.J. Green played for Gruden in Cincinnati for the past 3 seasons.  Green, of course, led the Bengals in targets all 3 years, with an average of 153.  We're not expecting Jackson to reach that mark in 2014.  He's not as talented as Green, and Washington has a deeper group of pass-catchers than Cincinnati.  But the target differential between Jackson and teammate Pierre Garcon won't be as big as most are projecting.  Both guys could finish as top 20 WRs this season.

The Redskins have signed WR DeSean Jackson to a 3-year, $24 million deal.  The 'Skins were Jackson's most-interested suitor from the get-go and didn't let him leave Washington without signing the dotted line.  It's an exciting addition for an offense that already features explosive youngsters Robert Griffin, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed.  Jackson immediately becomes the team's primary deep threat.  He's unlikely to match last year's 126 targets, though, and is probably looking at a drop in production across the board.  We like this signing more for RG3 than D-Jax.

The Eagles have released WR DeSean Jackson.  The move comes less than an hour after a report was published connecting D-Jax to an L.A. gang.  Jackson's off-field issues were certainly the driving force behind the move.  He proved a perfect fit in HC Chip Kelly's offense last year, setting career highs with 82 catches and 1,332 yards.  He matched a personal best with 9 TDs and finished among the top 12 WR across fantasy formats.  Despite the character concerns, Jackson's talent and age (27) guarantees that he finds a new home for 2014.  It won't be as inviting as Philly was, though.  His fantasy stock takes a significant hit with this news.  Meanwhile, the Eagles lose their most explosive pass-catcher.  They might look to replace Jackson with an early-round rookie, but Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper figure to open the season as the team's top 2 WRs.
