DeSean Jackson Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday. His injury is reportedly minor, but Jackson still seems iffy for Sunday night's game against the 49ers. D-Jax shouldn't be in your Week 4 fantasy plans.

NBC Sports' John Clark hears that Eagles WR DeSean Jackson's hamstring strain is not "too serious." That's relatively good news, although we're still skeptical that we'll see D-Jax in Week 4. And even if he does play, he'll be a risky fantasy start.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bengals. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Jackson has been ruled out.

The Eagles have placed WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on IR. He'd be eligible to return if Philly reaches the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but his fantasy season is over. A healthy D-Jax proved there's still plenty of gas in his tank with an 8-154-2 line back in Week 1, but staying healthy has proved increasingly difficult for the 32-year-old. The Eagles will move forward with a sluggish WR corps of Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson will undergo core-muscle surgery on Tuesday, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark. D-Jax tried to return for Sunday's game against the Bears and made his injury worse, reportedly tearing his abdominal muscle off the bone. He's expected to be sidelined another 4-6 weeks. The short end of that timeline would have him back for Week 14. It'd be at least another week before we could trust him in fantasy lineups, so Jackson is droppable outside of deep leagues. The Eagles' passing game will continue to lack a field-stretching deep threat without D-Jax.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) lasted just 4 snaps in his return on Sunday against the Bears. "He gets into the football game and he had a moment there where he said something felt something, and so we took him in for really precautionary reasons," HC Doug Pederson said Monday. "And everything, what I heard after the game, checked out good. We'll check him out again this morning. I'll get an update here in a little while. But I fully expect him to be good in a couple of weeks." Jackson gets a Week 10 bye to try to get healthy, but he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until we see him make it through a full game.
