DeSean Jackson goes off again

Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught 4-of-4 targets for 129 yards and a touchdown in Week 2's win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

For the second straight game, Jackson managed to break off a huge touchdown, this time a 75 yarder. Catching all nine of his targets for 275 yards and three touchdowns through two games in 2018, Jackson, like QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, seemed to have found the fountain of youth. Jackson is an upside Flex play in Week 3 against a Steelers defense that can't cover anyone.

DeSean Jackson officially active for Week 2 matchup with Eagles

Tampa Bay wide receiver DeSean Jackson is officially active for the team's Week 2 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson suffered a concussion in Week 1 but cleared the concussion protocol late in the week.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the concussion, Jackson is good to go on Sunday for a matchup against his former team. Jackson usually plays well against the Eagles and is always a threat to take the top off of a defense. In Week 1, he caught all five of his targets for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

DeSean Jackson clears concussion protocol, expected to start Week 2

DeSean Jackson has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to start Week 2 against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson made strides late in the week and is poised to suit up despite the head injury he suffered Week 1. He was dynamic against the Saints in the opener, and this would certainly be a revenge game narrative. Still, he remains a boom-or-bust play against a solid Eagles defense.

DeSean Jackson expected to play Week 2

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is reporting Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (concussion) is expected to play Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Per Fowler, Jackson expects to clear the league's concussion protocol and draw and active designation in Sunday's matchup against his former team (the Eagles). However, despite his big game last week, Jackson remains in the boom or bust column from a fantasy football perspective -- he will likely cede snaps and opportunities to Chris Godwin, who is beginning to emerge. In a revenge-game facing an Eagles secondary that shut down Matt Ryan last week, Jackson is only worth a look in DFS and could be comfortably faded in most season-long formats.

DeSean Jackson questionable to play Week 2

DeSean Jackson was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable to play Week 2 against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson is returning from a concussion. While it was a good sign that he was able to return as a full participant Friday during practice, the questionable tag means that he could be a game-time decision Sunday. There is certainly the revenge narrative, but he's a boom-or-bust play against a solid Philly defense.
