DeSean Jackson scores second touchdown of the season

DeSean Jackson caught three of six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the touchdown, this was actually one of Jackson's worst games of the season, as he had his fewest targets (six) and second-fewest yards (38) and receptions (three) on the season. Jackson has caught just 17 of 36 targets, and hasn't yet had a connection with Jameis Winston. Assuming Winston plays next week, but most likely even if not, Jackson will make a boom or bust WR3 against the Bills.

DeSean Jackson has five catches in loss

DeSean Jackson compiled 106 receiving yards on five catches against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

While Jackson had a solid game, he is still the true definition of a boom or bust player, making him a WR3 or Flex position play most weeks. He is more suited for best ball leagues or DFS than other formats, though he still should be fantasy relevant in all leagues.

DeSean Jackson held in check by the Giants

DeSean Jackson had two catches on six targets for 20 yards in yesterday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson has yet to have a breakout game with his new team, but it is coming. Jackson tied for third on the team in targets, but was behind Adam Humphries which doesn't appear to be an every week occurrence. If you own Jackson you aren't selling him, these duds are going to happen every once in a while. Jackson is a boom or bust WR3 with the potential to bust a long touchdown every time he touches the ball.

DeSean Jackson leads the team in receiving yards

DeSean Jackson caught four of his seven targets for 84 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. This was the first touchdown of the season for Jackson, as he led the team in receiving yards. He has seven catches for 123 yards this season.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson has a 20-yard catch in each of the first two games of the season, exactly what the Buccaneers brought him to Tampa for. The team lost on Sunday, but Jackson had a 25-yard touchdown as well as a 32-yard grab. Jackson will bring his explosive portfolio into a matchup with a familiar foe in Week 4, as the Buccaneers host the Giants.

DeSean Jackson does not make his mark

DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 39 yards against the Bears on Sunday. Jackson saw seven targets and caught a 21-yard pass as well. He had 59 catches for 1005 yards last season.

Fantasy Impact

The Buccaneers were looking for a deep threat and Jackson will fill that role, as he has averaged 17.7 yards per catch in his 128 career games. One issue for those looking at Jackson is that he only had four touchdown catches in each of the last two seasons and has only topped five touchdown receptions in four of his nine NFL seasons. He will not help in PPR leagues, topped 75 receptions just once, but he has 1000 yards in three of four seasons and will face the Vikings next week.
