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'e 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. Dec 7 - 10:34 AM

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.
Nov 24 - 8:29 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.
Nov 23 - 3:00 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.
Nov 22 - 12:02 PM

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.
Nov 21 - 12:55 AM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for Week 11 against the Packers.

This was expected after multiple reports said Jackson would play. Jackson has a plus matchup with a Packers secondary that was burned for four touchdowns last week, but his floor is low coming off injury in a game with bad conditions. The Redskins inactives are RB Matt Jones, QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Rashad Ross, LS Nick Sundberg, OT Blaine Clausell, DL Matt Ioannidis, and OG Arie Kouandjio.

Pro Football Talk reports DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) will play Sunday night against the Packers.

Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will be a game-time decision, but he always looked likely to play after getting in a full practice Friday. Despite being active, Jackson will be nothing more than a dart-throw WR4 even in a good matchup. He has not topped 60 yards or scored since Week 3.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Over his past four games, Jackson has averaged 7.75 targets and 1.25 red zone looks. He’s risky for sure; he’s inefficient and has been out-targeted by Jamison Crowder, but he’s still getting opportunities. Jackson will face Quentin Rollins and Micah Hyde most of the night. Both corners have a below-average 58.8 grade from Pro Football Focus. The game has a projected total of 49 points, and the Redskins are only favored by three at home. Plus, we’re projecting his ownership at 4.0% or lower around the industry. It’s one of the better weeks to roll the dice on him.

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is questionable for Week 11 against the Packers.

Jackson was listed as a full participant Friday after getting in two limited sessions earlier in the week. Despite the full practice, coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will be a game-time decision. With Washington playing on the Sunday night slate this week, he won't be worth the risk.
Nov 18 - 1:43 PM

The Redskins remain unsure of DeSean Jackson's (shoulder) Week 11 status.

"It's a matter of how he feels with his strength," coach Jay Gruden said after Jackson got in a limited practice Thursday. At this point, D-Jax appears truly 50-50. Even if he does play, Jackson will be a weak WR3.
Nov 17 - 3:07 PM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) practiced again on Thursday.

He was limited for the second straight day. Jackson sat out last week's game with a shoulder injury but it looks like he'll be back in action Sunday against the Packers. Jackson is barely on the WR3 radar at this point.
Nov 17 - 1:22 PM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday.

D-Jax was hurt in the Week 8 tie with the Bengals in London and missed the Week 10 win over the Vikings coming out of the bye. He's dealing with a rotator cuff issue. Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson has a chance to play this week against Green Bay. His return would be a hit to Jamison Crowder.
