The Ravens waived WR DeSean Jackson and activated WR Tylan Wallace from IR. Wallace joins Demarcus Robinson, Sammy Watkins and James Proche in Baltimore's WR corps. It's obviously a major weak spot heading into the playoffs.

Ravens WR Devin Duvernay has been placed on IR with a foot injury he suffered in Tuesday's practice. It's unclear if he has a shot to return when first eligible for the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but his regular season is over. Baltimore added WR Sammy Watkins in a corresponding move. Watkins spent last season with the Ravens but mustered just a 27-394-1 line across 13 games. He looked equally washed with the Packers this season. Watkins joins Demarcus Robinson, DeSean Jackson and James Proche in the WR corps.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ran for 89 yards Sunday against the Jaguars to power a quality fantasy outing. He rushed a season-high 14 times and narrowly missed a 4th-quarter TD when tackled just short of the goal line. (RB Gus Edwards scored 2 plays later.) Jackson completed just half of his 32 pass attempts but tallied 254 yards, his 2nd largest total of the season. A 62-yard connection with WR DeSean Jackson helped, as did a 40-yarder to TE Josh Oliver. The latter led the team with 76 yards on 4 receptions, matching TE Mark Andrews for the team catch lead. Jackson caught 2 of 3 targets for 74 yards. WRs Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson combined for just 4 receptions and 40 yards. Baltimore gets a tougher Denver pass defense in Week 13.

Ravens WR DeSean Jackson has been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. Jackson lasted just 11 snaps in his 1 and only game with Baltimore back in Week 9 before injuring his hamstring. He was targeted twice on those 11 snaps, though, and could step into a significant role tomorrow with TE Isaiah Likely out and WRs Demarcus Robinson and Devin Duvernay banged up. Jackson isn't a realistic season-long option but could be an interesting DFS tournament flier.

Ravens WR Demarcus Robinson (groin) is active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. WR DeSean Jackson is also active, joining Robinson, Devin Duvernay and James Proche in the WR corps.

Ravens WR Demarcus Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He was added to the injury report on Friday and did not practice on Saturday, so he seems truly iffy for this one. Robinson tallied season highs with 8 targets, 6 catches and 64 yards last week but wasn't a bankable Week 9 fantasy play even before this injury. His absence would leave the Ravens with WRs Devin Duvernay, James Proche, Tylan Wallace and DeSean Jackson, who's expected to make his debut in this one.

The Ravens signed WR DeSean Jackson to the practice squad. The 35-year-old caught just 20 balls across 16 games with the Rams and Raiders last year, although he still averaged 22.7 yards per catch. Assuming he eventually lands on the active roster, Jackson figures to be a part-time, situational deep threat for Baltimore. We wouldn't bother adding him to fantasy rosters, but he could be a slight boost for QB Lamar Jackson.

Raiders WR DeSean Jackson (calf) is active for today’s game vs. Washington. He’s coming off a 3-102-1 line on Thanksgiving but still played just 48% of the snaps in that one. D-Jax is tough to trust in fantasy lineups until his playing time grows.

Raiders WR DeSean Jackson (calf) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. Washington. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. Jackson’s role expanded on Thanksgiving, but he’s still only in play in DFS tournaments.

WR DeSean Jackson is signing with the Raiders, he tells insider Josina Anderson. D-Jax is a natural field-stretching replacement for WR Henry Ruggs. Ruggs averaged just 5.1 targets per game this season -- a number we doubt Jackson even gets to. He's unlikely to be a fantasy option but could be a boon to QB Derek Carr's production.

The Rams waived WR DeSean Jackson after failing to trade him ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Jackson caught just 8 balls across 7 outings with the Rams but proved he still has juice, averaging 27.6 yards per catch. We'll see where he lands next, but he's more likely to be a boon to his new QB than a standalone fantasy asset.

The Rams have given WR DeSean Jackson permission to seek a trade, HC Sean McVay said Friday. D-Jax won't play vs. the Texans this weekend. He totaled just 15 targets through 7 weeks, so there's no tangible fantasy impact here. We'll see if Jackson lands elsewhere.

Rams WR DeSean Jackson has had a "fantastic" camp, insider Cameron DaSilva writes. "Seemingly every day he’s making catches deep down the field for touchdowns, proving he still has that top-end speed and can threaten defenses," DaSilva adds. "Expect him to play a big role on offense this season, assuming he’s able to stay healthy." That last part is key. Jackson has enjoyed a healthy offseason so far. As long as that continues, he could be a sneaky fantasy option in what should be a strong Rams passing attack.

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.
