WR - LAR
Week 7 Outlook
DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Rams 34-24 win on Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Jackson led the Rams in receiving thanks to a 75-yard touchdown. Matthew Stafford almost hit him on another long touchdown. Nonetheless, Jackson remains not very fantasy relevant in redraft leagues.
DeSean Jackson is active for Week 1's contest against Chicago, after sitting out Friday's practice due to rest.
Jackson had been an elite deep threat throughout the prime of his career, but is unlikely to be on the fantasy radar this season. Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Tyler Higbee should serve as the top pass catchers for the Rams. Jackson will have to compete with Van Jefferson and rookie WR Tutu Atwell for snaps.
Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network is reporting that the Rams and WR DeSean Jackson reached agreement on a one-year deal Sunday.
Jackson to the Rams is official, but details of his contract are unknown at this time. Rams HC Sean McVay reportedly reached out personally to acquire the 34-year-old wide receiver. “Wanted proven speed for QB Matthew Stafford,” per Garofolo. Jackson was released by the Eagles in February after playing only eight games in his last two seasons in Philadelphia. He hauled in 14 receptions on 26 targets for 236 yards and one touchdown across five contests for the Eagles in 2020. Jackson gives the Rams a deep threat and will compete with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson for targets in LA’s passing game in 2021.
The Eagles have released WR DeSean Jackson.
Jackson was officially released by the Eagles on Friday. Philadelphia can save around $6 million towards the salary cap by waiving the wide receiver. Jackson still wants to play and will look to latch onto another team during the offseason. The 34–year-old hauled in 14 receptions on 26 targets for 236 yards and one touchdown across five games for the Eagles in 2020.
The Eagles have ruled out WR DeSean Jackson for Week 17 with an ankle injury.
Jackson caught a long touchdown pass last week in his first action since Week 7 but has now been ruled out for Week 17 with an ankle injury. Jackson just hasn't been able to stay on the field for the last two seasons in Philadelphia. In his absence and with teammate Dallas Goedert ruled out, Fantasy managers can expect Alshon Jeffrey and Zach Ertz to see a ton of targets against the Washington Football Team on Sunday.
