DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-5 targets for 34 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.
The impending free agent heads to the open market with the fifth 1,000-yard (1,005, to be exact) campaign of his nine-year career. Occasionally slowed by shoulder issues, Jackson had some 2016 slumps, but looked like the same game-breaking playmaker he's always been, averaging 17.9 yards per catch. Now 30, if Jackson has lost a step, it isn't evident on Sundays. Nevertheless, a 30-plus wideout reliant on speed could encounter a quieter market than he's hoping for. Jan 1 - 7:45 PM

DeSean Jackson (jaw) is practicing in full for Week 17.

He'll be ready to roll against the Giants and has topped 100 yards in three straight.

DeSean Jackson (jaw) is day to day.

Coach Jay Gruden made the disclosure on Monday. Jackson briefly played through the issue on Saturday, which would seemingly give him a good chance of suiting up against the Giants. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

DeSean Jackson caught 5-of-7 targets for 114 yards in the Redskins' Week 16 win over the Bears.

Jackson did all of his damage in the first half, failing to catch his lone target after the break. He missed a big chunk of the second half with a jaw injury but returned in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. Jackson has now gone over 100 yards in three straight games, a new career high. Jackson was roasting Bears LCB Tracy Porter and whoever else was lined up across from him all day. He could have easily had a 96-yard touchdown, but Kirk Cousins barely over-threw him. Jackson later drew a long defensive pass interference against Porter on the same series. Jackson will be a boom-or-bust WR3 next week at home against the Giants.

DeSean Jackson caught 7-of-10 targets for 111 yards in the Redskins' 26-15, Week 15 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

Jackson made a pair of sensational sliding catches on the sideline, but his night wasn't all roses. He had a terrible drop on a short 3rd-and-4 pass to kill one drive with the Redskins trailing 20-9 and trying to make a move on the Panthers. It just never happened for Washington in this one. Jackson has now topped 100 yards in three of his last four games after not doing so from Weeks 2-11. Weather permitting, Jackson will be in a good spot next week at the Bears.

DeSean Jackson caught 3-of-4 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Jackson made the play of the day in the third quarter, adjusting to an under-thrown deep ball to score an 80-yard touchdown. Coming back to the ball like Willie Mays, Jackson spun Leodis McKelvin around, and was off to the races. Healthy, Jackson has put himself back on the WR3 radar over the past month. The Panthers are an attackable Week 15 matchup.

ESPN Eagles reporter Tim McManus reports contract-year WR DeSean Jackson would be "intrigued" by the idea of signing with the Eagles in the offseason.

The Redskins have to be loving all of this talk about one of their players potentially re-joining a division rival as they're in the thick of the playoff race. But McManus' colleague, Adam Schefter, reported over the weekend that the Eagles are expected to "make a strong push" to bring Jackson back to Philly after he spent his first six years there before being cut by Chip Kelly. Coach Doug Pederson and GM Howie Roseman were in Philly during Jackson's heyday.

DeSean Jackson caught 1-of-4 targets for 59 yards Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Jackson dropped a pass and was ridiculously targeted on a goal-line fade against Patrick Peterson in the first half, but he started the second half on a high note by turning a dime by Kirk Cousins into a 59-yard gain down the middle of the field. That ended up being his only catch of the game, however. The low-floor, high-ceiling player will continue to be a volatile WR3 option next week in Philly.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are expected to "make a strong push" to sign impending free agent DeSean Jackson this offseason

Jackson spent his first six years in Philadelphia before ex-coach Chip Kelly cut him over off-field concerns. Per Schefter, Doug Pederson is a "big admirer" of Jackson and "multiple teams" believe he'll return with Kelly gone. Jackson has had multiple injures in two of his last three seasons in Washington, but is still one of the top deep threats in the league. The Eagles' need for a receiver to complement Jordan Matthews makes them a strong landing spot for Jackson.

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Coming off his best game of the season, Jackson appears to finally be over his shoulder issue. He is certainly going to play against the Cardinals, but he will likely see a lot of Patrick Peterson -- assuming Peterson is able to play through his knee injury. Even coming off a solid performance, Jackson will be nothing more than a boom-or-bust WR3.

DeSean Jackson caught 4-of-8 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to Dallas.

Jackson always has this kind of game in him. You knew that if you started him, but most people didn't. This was Jackson's first game clearing 60 yards since Week 3. Jackson will continue to be a boom-bust WR3 option in Week 13.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 08:29:00 PM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for Week 12 against the Cowboys.

D-Jax should be fine for his usual role on Thanksgiving. Inactive for the Redskins are LS Nick Sundberg, QB Nate Sudfeld, RB Matt Jones, WR Rashad Ross, OT Blaine Clausell, OG Arie Kouandjio and DL Matt Ioannidis.

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is questionable for Week 12 against the Cowboys.

He was limited on Monday and Tuesday before being upgraded to full on Wednesday. Jackson is ready to roll against Brandon Carr and Co. The Cowboys are No. 28 in pass-defense DVOA. Jackson is a boom-or-bust WR3.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 03:00:00 PM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited at Tuesday's practice.

Jackson played his full complement of snaps while ending a five-game touchdown drought Sunday against the Packers. Obviously he's in no danger of sitting out Thursday's Thanksgiving matchup at Dallas. With Jordan Reed, Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and even Chris Thompson all drawing steady targets, it's hard to endorse Jackson as anything more than a boom-or-bust WR3 in fantasy.

DeSean Jackson caught 4-of-6 targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 11 win over the Packers.

Jackson ran a nice route on a 17-yard post for Washington's first touchdown. He was wide open for a second TD, but Kirk Cousins didn't see him in the end-zone. The touchdown was Jackson's first since Week 3. Jackson didn't look limited from his shoulder injury after missing last week. He's back on the WR3 map for Thursday's game with Dallas.
