DeSean Jackson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that WR DeSean Jackson is joining the Rams. The 35-year-old wideout appeared in just 8 games over 2 seasons back with the Eagles -- and missed 4 games in his final Tampa season the year before. When on the field, though, Jackson has remained a speedy deep threat. His arrival would hurt Van Jefferson's chances of claiming a top-3 spot on the Rams' WR depth chart. It would add upside to QB Matthew Stafford's fantasy profile, though.

WR DeSean Jackson has been released by the Eagles, according to DeSean Jackson on Instagram. The move saves Philly almost $5 million against the cap and was a no-brainer move for a team in rebuilding mode. Jackson is 34 and managed to hit the field for just 8 games over the past 2 seasons. He's proven to still have gas in the tank when he has been healthy, averaging 17.2 yards per catch in those 8 games. We'll see how much interest he garners on the open market and where he eventually lands.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. Washington. He popped for a long TD in last week’s win over the Cowboys but is hurt again. Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, Alshon Jeffery and Travis Fulgham will be Philly’s top 4 WRs in the finale.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) has been activated from IR, putting him on track to return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He couldn't be trusted in fantasy lineups in his 1st action since Week 7, but Jackson's presence can't hurt QB Jalen Hurts' outlook.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) has been designated to return from IR. He's eligible to return to practice this week and play against the Cowboys on Sunday, although it's unclear if he'll be ready. Jackson, sidelined since Week 7, couldn't be trusted in fantasy lineups this weekend. Maybe he'll be a DFS tournament flier in Week 17.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Eagles WR DeSean Jackson suffered a non-displaced fracture to his right ankle in Thursday night's loss to the Giants -- a "similar injury" to that suffered by teammate Dallas Goedert. Jackson's expected to miss 6-8 weeks. Garafolo reports that he's "highly motivated to get back this year and next." With just 9 weeks remaining in the fantasy football regular season for most leagues, though, you can drop Jackson. The injury extends the window for WR Travis Fulgham to maintain his role. We'll see about the upcoming returns of other Eagles pass-catchers.

The Eagles believe WR DeSean Jackson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday night's win over the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. D-Jax is getting an MRI on Friday to confirm. He figures to miss multiple weeks with this latest injury and is droppable in fantasy leagues.

Update: Jackson has been placed on IR, so he'll miss at least the next 3 games.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson left in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Giants with an injury to his right leg. Jackson's leg got stuck underneath him and twisted on a late hit during a punt return. We'll see about the severity of the injury, but Jackson left the field with the help of 2 trainers while putting no weight on his right foot.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 7 injury report after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. He'll return for Thursday night's game against the Giants after missing the past 3 weeks. Ideally you can wait to see D-Jax make it through a game healthy before throwing him back into fantasy lineups. But he has big-play upside whenever he's out there, so he's a fine Week 7 flier.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles expect to get WR DeSean Jackson back for Thursday night's game against the Giants. Jackson is out for today's game against the Ravens, which will be his 3rd straight contest lost to a hamstring injury. We'll watch practice reports on Jackson heading into Week 7, but he should be in fantasy consideration for that matchup. The return of any deep threat can only help the fantasy outlook for QB Carson Wentz.

Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) are out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Both guys were limited in practice all week and seem close to returning. Their absences this week keep WR Travis Fulgham in play, although it’s a tough spot for Philly’s offense.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all 3 days last week before missing the Steelers game. D-Jax is seemingly trending in the right direction -- but we'd wait until he makes it through a full game before tossing him back in fantasy lineups.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He returned to limited practices this week, giving him a shot to be back for Week 6. Philly will continue to roll with a rag-tag WR group of Greg Ward, John Hightower, Travis Fulgham, Deontay Burnett and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who is set to return after missing last week with a calf injury.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Steelers. We'd like to see D-Jax make it through a game healthy before tossing him back in fantasy lineups.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) missed practice all week and is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. He might be looking at a multi-week absence. WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) is doubtful for Week 4, so it figures to be Greg Ward, John Hightower and Deontay Burnett as Philly’s top 3 WRs vs. San Francisco. TE Zach Ertz is the team’s best target bet.
