Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
 Desean Jackson takes over for Josh Reynolds, but he usually has a hard time staying healthy. If he goes down, don't be surprised if Van Jefferson comes in and does well. The scouting report on Jefferson is what he lacks in speed, he makes up for in route running. That's how he creates separation. His dad is a NFL coach who taught him well. With an upgrade at QB in Matthew Stafford, Van Jefferson could make an impact sooner than many fantasy pundits realize.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
When Jackson's on the field, he's still one of the most lethal deep threats in the NFL. Unfortunately, we simply cannot depend on his availability at this point of his career. Jackson's a fine dart throw with your last pick to see if he can last a few games into the season, but he's not worth valuing any more than that. With that being said, Jackson could pop off the first few weeks now paired with Matthew Stafford, who is not afraid to push the ball deep downfield.The selection of Van Jefferson in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft was puzzling to me then and it's still puzzling to me now. With DeSean Jackson playing the field-stretching role for this offense, there's no path to significant opportunity for Jefferson on this roster. He's unlikely to ever see a high percentage of snaps with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp both healthy. Jefferson's a talented receiver, but he just doesn't have the path for targets that's needed for fantasy football.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
I'm starting him and playing him in DFS whenever he's healthy, he's just old and brittle. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
There were very few places DJax could land and have draftable value. In McVay's offense with Stafford's rocket arm was one of them.
