2020 Draft Rankings
DeSean Jackson Note

We saw exactly one game with Jackson healthy in the Doug Pederson offense. It led to nine targets, eight receptions, 154 yards, and two touchdowns. To be fair, it was against Washington, but still impressive. It's tough to take too much away from just one game, though. He is now 34 years old, so it's only a matter of time before his game declines, though we haven't seen it yet. He's averaged at least 10.0 yards per target in six of his last seven seasons. With Marquise Goodwin opting out for the season, they'll need Jackson in the field-stretching role. He's a poor man's version of Will Fuller at this stage of his career but can still fit in your lineup from time to time. At his current WR58 draft position, he's a steal.

Jalen Reagor Note

Reagor sustained a shoulder injury on August 30th and although the word is that he'll avoid surgery, he's reportedly likely to miss about four weeks. Prior to the injury, Reagor was set to be a value in drafts, as Alshon Jeffery's injury and a lack of reliable receiving options outside DeSean Jackson had him set to see a significant role. The timetable for his return is far from certain, but given that Reagor is a rookie and hasn't had any preseason contests to experience the speed of an NFL game, fantasy managers shouldn't count on production for him at the outset even after he returns. That's especially true given that he won't have as much time to benefit from Jeffery's likely absence to start the season. All in all, Reagor is a bench stash currently, but be prepared to be unable to use him for fantasy purposes for at least several weeks into the season.

Alshon Jeffery Note

Jeffery wound up avoiding the PUP list, though he's unlikely to be able to suit up for at least the first game or two of the season. When healthy, Jeffery is an excellent fantasy option, capable of putting up WR2 numbers or better regularly. But coming off a Lisfranc injury, and with a checkered health history, it's hard to see him contributing all that much right out of the gate. With roster and IR spots at a premium this year, there's little reason to waste a draft pick on Jeffery until your starting roster is set.
