DeSean Jackson likely to return punts

DeSean Jackson is likely to return punts for the Eagles this season.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson is reportedly the “top candidate” to be the Eagles’ punt returner in 2019. This isn’t new territory for the receiver, who returned 99 punts for four TDs in his first three years with the Eagles from 2008-2010. His top-end speed and electric playmaking abilities will serve him well on special teams and add an extra wrinkle to his fantasy value.

DeSean Jackson has strong connection with Carson Wentz in OTAs

DeSean Jackson and Carson Wentz have shown a strong connection in OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

The chemistry seems great between Wentz and Jackson already, with Jackson seemingly “always open” against the first-team defense. Jackson rejoins the Eagles after five seasons of up-and-down production with the Redskins and Buccaneers. He played for Philadelphia from 2008-2013 and enjoyed three Pro Bowl selections. One of the premier deep threats in the league, he’s amassed 10,261 receiving yards and 53 receiving TDs in his 11 years in the NFL. Only 32, Jackson still possesses elite speed and could make a big impact for Philadelphia in his return to the team that drafted him. Already a popular pick in best ball formats, Jackson’s popularity in redraft formats is sure to rise steadily as the season approaches. He’s currently the WR43 based on our Expert Consensus Rankings.

DeSean Jackson traded to Eagles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded DeSean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear what the Bucs will get in return but things appeared to be heading this way for a while now. Jackson wasn't happy in Tampa Bay and wanted to return to Philly. The 32-year-old speedster will be a nice complement to an Eagles offense that doesn't have a true deep threat. In 12 games last year Jackson totaled 771 yards and four scores. He'll be an exciting best-ball pick throughout off-season drafts.

DeSean Jackson 'destined' for Eagles

The Eagles and wide receiver DeSean Jackson are "destined for each other again," barring any unforeseen changes, according to reports.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson and the Buccaneers appear poised to part ways this offseason. The question remains whether or not Tampa Bay will trade Jackson or if they will cut him loose. Either way, it seems as if he'll be heading back to Philadelphia, based on these rumors. In Tampa, Chris Godwin should be able to take a step forward in 2019 without DJax on the roster. It remains to be seen what other focus the Eagles give to the WR position, but Jackson could continue to be a boom/bust play at WR with his new team.
