Fantasy Impact: The Redskins' coaches told the quarterbacks to target Jackson even if he was covered, because of Jackson's ability to separate. This season, though, head coach Jay Gruden doesn't want quarterbacks forcing the ball to any onesince he wants to get Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed and Andre Roberts more involved. Gruden also wants to run the ball a lot more in 2015. As a result of a more balanced, spread-the-wealth type offense, it would be exceptionally difficult to improve on the 1,169 yards Jackson had last year. The 59 catches he earned can be replicated, while it is very possible that the six touchdowns he caught could increase due to his playmaking ability. Basically, the Redskins need to get their other playmakers involved to compliment Jackson and it will probably come at the expense of Jackson's numbers.
