WR - PHI
This Week Outlook
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.
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson caught his only target for an 81-yard touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Jackson returned to the field after missing the team's last seven games with leg and ankle injuries and made an immediate impact. However, he only played 20 snaps and was reportedly sore late in the game. And with the Eagles playing in a meaningless Week 17 game against Washington next week, it's unlikely Jackson will see significant work.
The Eagles are activating WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) from injured reserve.
Jackson was able to return to practice this week and he'll be a full-go for Sunday's Week 16 game against the Cowboys. His downfield speed should help open up the Eagles' offense as a whole, though he can't really be trusted in fantasy lineups for those in season-long leagues.
Eagles' HC Doug Pederson said WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is "close" to returning from injured reserve.
“He’s (Jackson) getting close,” Pederson said. “We activated it for that reason, we feel like he is close. He was able to get some snaps in yesterday with the offense, and we’ll integrate him more today and just see where he’s at.” Jackson has been sidelined since Week 7's win over the Giants with a non-displaced fracture in his right ankle. The 34-year-old WR is practicing Thursday and will look to ramp up his activity throughout the week. If activated, Jackson would give the Eagles wideout corps a boost and provide rookie QB Jalen Hurts another offensive weapon.
The Eagles designated WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) to return from injured reserve.
This opens Jackson's 21-day practice window, which gives him a shot at returning before the end of the season. The veteran wideout seemingly has a chance to return in Week 17 against the division-rival Cowboys.
