What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Jackson has managed to play in just 8 games over the past 2 seasons and will turn 35 later this year. We obviously can’t count on him for the entire 2021 campaign.
But Jackson has remained effective when on the field and has a chance to win the #3 WR job in what should be a strong Rams passing game under HC Sean McVay and QB Matt Stafford.
Jackson is a nice late-round target in best-ball drafts and could be a spot-start option in lineup-setting leagues.
