Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson had one reception for 14 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to the Washington Football Team. The veteran once again wasn't used on every offensive snap, which played a part in his low numbers. Additionally, quarterback Derek Carr favored targeting Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones behind Hunter Renfrow against a Washington defense that defied expectations. Jackson remains a risky fantasy pick since he doesn't play consistently, and that likely won't change in Week 14 when the Raiders visit the Kansas City Chiefs.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team, as is wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf). Jacobs should see a solid amount of work and is a fantasy RB2 play this week, while Jackson is a boom-or-bust WR4 play, with the bust part having a higher likelihood.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson (groin) is expected to suit up against Washington on Sunday afternoon, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The veteran deep threat hauled in three of four targets for 102 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. Jackson's big-play upside makes him a respectable FLEX option in deeper leagues this week.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf) is listed as questionable for the Week 13 game against the Washington Football Team. Jackson was limited in practice on Wednesday and Friday and sat out on Thursday. The 35-year-old speedy deep threat seems to be trending towards playing on Sunday, but fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on his status if they plan on using him as a boom/bust WR4/flex in his fourth game for the Silver and Black. In his third game with Las Vegas on Thanksgiving last Thursday, Jackson played a season-high 48% of the offensive snaps and caught three of four targets for 102 yards and his second TD of 2021. Washington's defense allows a ton of air yards per game and the second-most fantasy points per game to WRs, but they could give Jackson more attention deep down the field with tight end Darren Waller (knee) out.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson looks to keep contributing this Sunday against the Washington Football Team, although it is still a question of what kind of fantasy impact he will have. The veteran wideout was on the team's injury report this week as he nursed a calf injury, but returned to practice on Friday and should be good to go. Jackson impressed on Thanksgiving with three receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown in Vegas' crazy 36-33 overtime win, making his first big impact since joining Vegas this season. Now, playing Jackson is always a bit of a risk, and he has yet to show any consistency for the Silver and Black. That being said, he's a good flex option for fantasy managers if he's healthy in Week 13 because of his big-play potential against a Washington defense that is struggling to contain receivers.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf), who was limited in practice on Wednesday with a calf injury, was not on the field on Thursday for individual drills. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Jackson's calf injury isn't very serious, so the Raiders could just be giving him a breather before Friday's practice. But for a player like Jackson that relies heavily on his speed as a deep downfield threat for Las Vegas, this injury shouldn't be ignored. We'll have a better idea of D-Jax's status for the Week 13 game against the Washington Football Team on Friday. He played just under 50% of the offensive snaps in his third game with the team last week and caught three passes for 102 yards and his second touchdown of the year. With tight end Darren Waller (knee) likely out this week, the Raiders would be hurting for pass-catchers if Jackson is also unable to play. Bryan Edwards would be more attractive as a flex play.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Jackson played 48% of the offensive snaps, his most in his third game with the team, in the Thanksgiving overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys last Thursday and had three catches for 102 yards and his second touchdown of the season on four targets. The 35-year-old is averaging a healthy 30.1 yards as a veteran deep threat, but he'll probably be more effective in Week 13 against the Washington Football Team if tight end Darren Waller (knee) is able to take attention away in the middle of the field. Washington's defense is allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to pass-catchers, but D-Jax will remain a boom/bust WR4/flex as an all-or-nothing deep threat.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson hasn't done much so far for his new team and will be challenged on Thanksgiving day against the host Dallas Cowboys. After posting just one reception in Week 10 against the Chiefs, the veteran receiver had one carry for four rushing yards but wasn't targeted once in Week 11 against the Bengals. While his lack of production is partly due to how few offensive snaps he has played, Jackson isn't doing enough at the moment to get fantasy managers excited. There is still a possibility Jackson could emerge as a downfield presence on Thursday in Dallas, but managers are better off playing other receivers.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson is looking to have a bounce-back performance this Sunday against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran wideout had one catch for 38 yards in last Sunday night's 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, plus a costly fumble that visibly deflated his new team. That being said, the 34-year-old only played nine snaps, so his body of work in his first game with the Raiders isn't a lot to go on. Even with Vegas going up against a Cincinnati defense that isn't fairing well against the passing game, Jackson should only be played in deep leagues given how little work he appears to be getting.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson had one catch for 38 yards and one fumble in Sunday night's 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The newest member of the Raiders offense could have helped turn things around for the team had he not had that costly fumble in the third quarter, which led to the Chiefs kicking a field goal and taking over the rest of the game. Jackson didn't have enough work to gauge what his impact will be with the Raiders, but fantasy managers shouldn't be rushing to start him either.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson is set to make his debut for the Silver and Black this Sunday against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs. The 34-year-old only saw 15 targets in seven games for the LA Rams this season but was productive when he got the ball and had eight catches for 221 yards and a touchdown. D-Jax is also joining a Raiders team that needs an extra boost downfield, especially this week against a Chiefs defense that has been inconsistent all season. Fantasy managers should consider Jackson a WR4/FLEX pick for Week 10.
Free-agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who was released by the Los Angeles Rams earlier this week after they failed to find a trade partner for him, said that he is going to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders. This pairing makes perfect sense after the Raiders just released former first-rounder Henry Ruggs III after he was arrested and charged with a DUI involving a death earlier in the week. Las Vegas now has another deep threat to pair with Hunter Renfrow. Bryan Edwards, who was expected to have a bigger role without Ruggs in the fold, had zero receptions in the Week 9 loss to the New York Giants. D-Jax saw only 15 targets in seven games in LA, but he had eight catches for 221 yards (27.6 yards per catch) and a touchdown, and he'll be an interesting boom/bust WR4/flex for fantasy managers in deeper leagues now that he's found a new team.
Free-agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson had a Zoom meeting with the Las Vegas Raiders this past week, according to Mike Silver of Bally Sports. The veteran wideout could sign a contract as soon as Monday, but he hasn't made an official decision yet. Jackson was granted his release by the Rams last week. Through seven games this season, the 34-year-old hauled in eight passes for 221 yards and one touchdown. On the other hand, Las Vegas is looking to add a wide receiver after releasing Henry Ruggs III due to various criminal charges.
Former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver DeSean Jackson has cleared waivers and has started discussions with seven teams. Jackson figures to land with a new team soon, but he's currently going through all of his options. The 34-year-old has no plans to retire and wants to continue playing in the NFL for a contender. Jackson asked to be traded by the Rams when it was clear that Van Jefferson was the team's favored No. 3 receiver behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Despite not playing over 32% of the offensive snaps in any one game with LA, Jackson had eight catches for 221 yards (27.6 yards per catch) and a touchdown in seven games and could be a nice flier for a team lacking a deep speed threat down the field. Just don't expect him to suddenly become more than a boom/bust flex in deep leagues.
Former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver DeSean Jackson cleared waivers on Thursday. Although Jackson wasn't making much of an impact in fantasy, his absence could boost some of the Rams' ancillary options. Notably Robert Woods and Van Jefferson become more attractive fantasy options with Jackson's deep targets becoming available. The veteran speedster, himself, probably won't make a major difference for whichever team signs him, but perhaps his quarterback could see a slight boost with such a substantial speed threat.
The Los Angeles Rams officially waived wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Tuesday after the team couldn't work out a trade for him before the deadline. Jackson will hope to latch on with another organization as a boom/bust deep threat. The 34-year-old caught eight of his 15 targets for 221 yards (27.6 yards per catch) and one touchdown in seven games (no starts) for the Rams this year. Van Jefferson took over the No. 3 job behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, so Jackson and the Rams are moving on. With D-Jax now gone and rookie Tutu Atwell (shoulder) out for the season, rookie Ben Skowronek could see more playing time as LA's No. 4 receiver moving forward.
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed that wide receiver DeSean Jackson has received permission to seek a trade, and he will not be active in Week 8 against the Houston Texans as a result. The 34-year-old and the Rams have mutually agreed that a trade is in the best interest of both parties, and the veteran deep threat should receive some interest, as he's averaged 27.6 yards per catch and has a 75-yard touchdown reception this year. D-Jax played just four snaps last week, though, and it's clear that second-year receiver Van Jefferson has become the team's No. 3 receiver behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. As an inconsistent boom/bust deep threat, Jackson will find it hard to re-enter the fantasy picture, even if he lands in a favorable environment.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver DeSean Jacksonwas held out of practice on Monday for rest purposes. The team's presumptive WR3 behind starters Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp is projected to have a healthy role within the offense, but he hasn't been practicing in full in training camp. When asked why he was held out of practice, head coach Sean McVay said, "We're just making sure we've got him on a good schedule where we want to get him up to speed." It's mildly concerning that he is not fully up to speed with the regular season a few weeks away, and if he were to slip down the depth chart, second-year wideout Van Jefferson would be the primary beneficiary.
The Los Angeles Rams had strong underneath receivers last year, but they made the move this offseason to add some speed on the outside in the form of veteran DeSean Jackson, who had spent the last two years with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson has struggled with health over the last few seasons, but when he's been on the field, he's been a big play waiting to happen with an average yards per reception of 16.2 or better in all but one of his last eight seasons. The Rams also drafted rookie Tutu Atwell in the second round, but Atwell still has to get ready for the speed of the NFL game before he's ready to take over that role. Until then, Jackson will have a hold on the third wide receiver job.
The Los Angeles Rams agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with free-agent veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Sunday. He will fill a much-needed role as a deep threat in on offense that now features quarterback Matthew Stafford. Jackson, a three-time Pro Bowler, has the most 60-plus-yard touchdowns (24) in NFL history. The 34-year-old is entering his 13th NFL season and ranks sixth all time in yards per catch (17.4). Jackson will reunite with head coach Sean McVay, who served as his offensive coordinator for three years in Washington. Jackson is a proven speedy deep threat, but he'll be competing for targets amongst Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson and Tyler Higbee, and he's been extremely injury-prone in recent seasons. Jackson played in just three games in 2019 due to a core muscle injury and missed 11 games in 2020 with an ankle injury.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson announced that he will be released on his Instagram on Friday. Jackson was due $9 million in non-guaranteed salary for the 2021 season. The speedy yet oft-injured deep threat said that he still wants to play at the age of 34. Jackson's second stint with the Eagles was forgettable, as he had just 23 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns in eight games due to injuries over the last two seasons. He was brought back to be a field-stretching option for Carson Wentz (now with the Colts) in 2019, but he missed most of the season due to injury and the Eagles brought in more receiver help through the draft. The Eagles will incur $5.8 million in dead money in 2021 by releasing Jackson, while saving $4.85 million. Wherever he lands, he'll be a boom/bust deep threat as a big injury risk on top of it.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (ankle) will be inactive for the team's season finale against the Washington Football Team in Week 17. Jackson sat out practice this past week so the fact he is inactive is no surprise. He played in last week's game and caught his only target, an 81-yard touchdown reception. Alshon Jeffery and Jalen Reagor will likely be the primary targets for quarterback Jalen Hurts in a tough matchup against a strong Washington pass defense this week.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (ankle), tight ends Dallas Goedert (calf) and Richard Rodgers (ankle), defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (neck) and defensive end Derek Barnett (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. Jackson returned from Injured Reserve last week and caught his only target for an 81-yard touchdown. But he played just 20 snaps on the day and should not be trusted in Week 17 in a tougher matchup with Washington. Goedert caught just three passes for 38 yards last week and was injured late in the game. He's caught 46 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games in 2020 and will be a low-end TE1 if he plays, but keep an eye on his status throughout the week. If he cannot play, Zach Ertz will have a much bigger role and will be a TE1. Philly's defense should be seen as a top-10 fantasy unit this week, especially if Washington quarterback Alex Smith (calf) and top receiver Terry McLaurin (ankle) cannot play.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was only targeted once in a Week 16 loss, but he made it count, catching an 81-yard touchdown. Jackson wasn't on the field much and was only looked at on that one pass play, but the long touchdown must have made a difference somewhere in some fantasy league where Jackson was in a starting lineup for an inexplicable reason. While he may have a larger role in Week 17, a tough Washington defense awaits him.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (ankle) has been activated from Injured Reserve and will return to the field for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Jackson has played just once since Week 3, having logged 13 receptions for 155 yards across his four contests in 2020. His addition to the passing game gives rookie quarterbackJalen Hurts yet another target, muddying the waters for fantasy managers eyeing strong performances from rookieJalen Reagor, Greg Wardand Alshon Jeffery during season-long championship week. That level of competition at WR and Jackson's injury history likely keeps Jackson from being a factor in season-long leagues, but he could be worth a dice roll as a boom-or-bust DFS play.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
