Jackson should be your WR4 target in every league over the next 10 days. (@GrahamBarfield) Reagor/Jeffery both limited and D-Jax gets two amazing draws out of the blocks in Week 1 (vs. WAS) and Week 3 (vs. CIN). Both of those secondaries were bottom-10 in gains of 15+ pass yards last year. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Making his presence felt in his first game as an Eagle since a January 2014 playoff loss, Jackson caught eight passes for 154 yards and two scores in the 2019 season opener. It was downhill from there, as Jackson didn't draw a target before exiting with a groin injury the following week. He returned to catch a five-yard pass in Week 9 before missing the remainder of the season. With Jalen Raegor and Alshon Jeffery banged up, Jackson could be startable early this season.Exhibiting skills that are similar to those of Rams receiver Robert Woods, Jefferson is a tough receiver and savvy route runner who played a big part in Joe Burrow's breakout year at LSU. More of a complementary player than a true No. 1, Jefferson will have a chance to contribute as a rookie opposite Adam Thielen with Stefon Diggs having been dealt by Minnesota in March.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
When healthy, DeSean Jackson is a phenomenal deep threat WR with decent fantasy value but the guy is never healthy. In his 12-year career, Jackson has played 16 games just two times. Now the Eagles have added WRs both through the draft and free agency. You can't trust Jackson to stay healthy anymore and that's a deal-breaker.Jefferson steps directly into the WR2 role for the Vikings after the departure of Stefon Diggs this offseason. With no preseason it may take Jefferson a couple of weeks to get acclimated, but over 16 games, he should see the most targets of any rookie wideout. He's definitely someone worth targeting at the end of drafts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We saw exactly one game with Jackson healthy in the Doug Pederson offense. It led to nine targets, eight receptions, 154 yards, and two touchdowns. To be fair, it was against Washington, but still impressive. It's tough to take too much away from just one game, though. He is now 34 years old, so it's only a matter of time before his game declines, though we haven't seen it yet. He's averaged at least 10.0 yards per target in six of his last seven seasons. With Marquise Goodwin opting out for the season, they'll need Jackson in the field-stretching role. He's a poor man's version of Will Fuller at this stage of his career but can still fit in your lineup from time to time. At his current WR58 draft position, he's a steal.In case you didn't know, Jefferson is coming off a ridiculous season with LSU where he tallied 111 receptions for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns over 15 games. He played the big-slot role for them, which is something the Vikings should take into consideration when figuring out how to best deploy him. Unfortunately, Jefferson wound up on the COVID list and is being forced to miss a lot of camp. Still, he's a route-running technician who's playing behind a 30-year-old receiver who's been dealing with back issues. There's an avenue where Jefferson is relied upon as a rookie more than most think, though it would likely require Thielen to be out of the lineup. Under Gary Kubiak/Kevin Stefanski last year, the wide receivers saw just 43.2 percent of the target share (4th-lowest mark in the NFL), making it very difficult for multiple options to be fantasy relevant on a week-to-week basis. Because of that, Jefferson is essentially just a wide receiver handcuff.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
DeSean Jackson is getting a surprising amount of hype for a 33-year-old coming off a major injury which derailed the majority of his 2019 season. He does have massive upside though, especially on a weekly basis as evidenced by his Week 1 explosion for 154 yards and 2 TDs last season. With a heap of new weapons in town though, it's hard to see much chance DJax replicates anything close to his original Eagles success. The Alshon Jeffery injury certainly helps but Jackson is still far from a certainty. Take him in Best Ball but use caution in other leagues as there's a good chance he'll have as many bust weeks as boom weeks.Justin Jefferson has regularly been under-estimated compared to the big three of Ruggs, Lamb and Jeudy and that's simply not an accurate representation of his ability. Now falling into a brilliant opportunity in the wide-open Minnesota back-field, Jefferson will get the perfect chance to prove himself and I believe he's the rookie you want in 2020. He's expected to play mostly out of the slot but showed in 2018 that he's very capable of bouncing outside so he should play on most downs. Adam Thielen's stats prove that the slot snaps are most valuable in Minnesota so Jefferson should be the hot ticket in town. Excitingly, he's available well into the double-digit rounds and is the perfect late-round dart throw, especially in PPR.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Alshon Jeffery projected to start the season on the PUP list, Jackson is a screaming steal at his current ADP. We've seen what Jackson can do when he's fully healthy in this offense and right now, Jackson is the smartest selection you can make in the late rounds of your draft. He can be plugged in immediately as a WR2/WR3 into your lineup and he'll still have value as long as he stays healthy.Justin Jefferson landed in a beautiful spot for fantasy football, as he steps in alongside Adam Thielen and will assume the Stefon Diggs role. Thielen and Jefferson are the only true players there that should command targets and we know that Thielen has started to deal with some injuries the past couple of years. Jefferson should easily see over 100 targets in year one and may bring even more upside if something were to happen to Adam Thielen.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 2019 Slot % Diggs - 14.7 Thielen - 29.3 Bisi - 34 Beebe - 52.5 (barely played) Justin Jefferson is going to be a WR2 right out of the gate. His biggest obstacle? Not Adam Thielen, but passing volume. No one had over 100 targets and Cook was 2nd on the team with 63. Injuries played a part in this but the Vikings went from 606 ATT in 2018, fired Defilippo, 466 ATT in 2019. The slot roll was basically a committee in 2019, Jefferson should consolidate that in 2020
