Jackson headed to Rams | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.
