DeSean Jackson caught 4-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Bucs' Week 14 loss to the Lions, adding a 23-yard rush.
This has been Jackson's standard game of late. He's been a Ted Ginn-type option in fantasy leagues. We suppose Jackson will offer some upside as a WR4 for the fantasy semifinals against the Falcons in Week 15. Dec 10 - 5:24 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in the Bucs' Week 13 loss to the Packers.

He and Mike Evans combined for 57 yards on four catches in a dream spot against this horrible Green Bay secondary. Jameis Winston couldn't make anything happen, however. Jackson did catch a short touchdown in the second half, but it was easily overturned when Winston was at least three yards past the line of scrimmage when he threw the ball. Jackson will look to rebound next week at home against the Lions. He'll be a boom-bust WR3 in that one.
Dec 3 - 5:06 PM

DeSean Jackson (foot) is active for Week 13 against the Packers.

Cameron Brate (hip) and Jameis Winston (shoulder) are also active after all three were listed questionable. D-Jax is in a good spot as an upside play.
Dec 3 - 11:34 AM

DeSean Jackson (questionable, foot) is expected to play Week 13 against the Packers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport described Jackson as "hobbled a bit" by his foot injury, but he's going to grind it out Sunday at Green Bay. He gets an enticing matchup and should benefit from the return of Jameis Winston, who is back after missing the last three games with a shoulder injury.
Dec 3 - 8:13 AM

DeSean Jackson (foot) is questionable for Week 13 against the Packers.

Jackson finished the week with two limited practices and should be ready to rock Sunday at Lambeau Field. With Jameis Winston (shoulder) returning from a three-week absence, D-Jax will be playable as a WR2/3 in a good matchup.
Dec 1 - 3:56 PM

DeSean Jackson (foot) returned to practice on Thursday.

This confirms that Wednesday was just a maintenance day for Jackson. With Jameis Winston back under center, D-Jax will be a borderline WR2 Sunday at New Orleans.
Nov 30 - 1:26 PM

DeSean Jackson (foot) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He looked fine in Sunday's loss to Atlanta, so this could be just a rest day for the veteran. Assuming he plays this week, Jackson could get a boost from the return of Jameis Winston, who is back after missing the last three games with a shoulder injury.
Nov 29 - 5:50 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 8-of-11 targets for 60 yards in the Bucs' Week 12 loss to the Falcons.

Both the catches and yards were new season highs, but it was also the first time all year Jackson averaged fewer than 10 yards per catch. Coach Dirk Koetter was manufacturing touches for his No. 2 wideout, proactively finding him on short passes and screens. Big-play threat D-Jax could never bust a big one. The Packers offer a burnable matchup for Week 13.
Nov 26 - 5:08 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-3 targets for 28 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Dolphins.

Jackson secured a 4-yard touchdown on a drag to put Tampa Bay up 20-7 right before the end of the first half. With the Bucs nursing their lead, Jackson was hardly involved for the remainder of the game. Jackson has now been held to fewer than 40 yards receiving in six of his 10 games this season, but two of his three touchdowns on the season have come from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Jackson is a boom or bust WR3 next week in Atlanta.
Nov 19 - 5:07 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 6-of-10 targets for 82 yards in the Bucs' Week 10 win over the Jets.

Jackson dusted Morris Claiborne badly to begin the game and was Ryan Fitzpatrick's top target throughout. The Bucs will be getting back Mike Evans from suspension in Week 11 against Miami, where D-Jax will remain a volatile WR3/flex play.
Nov 12 - 5:27 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards while adding eight yards rushing in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

Jackson had a frustrating afternoon as he had Ken Crawley beat vertically on two long throws in the first half, but neither throw was on target. Always a hyper-volatile player, 2017 has been no different for Jackson. He has now been held to fewer than 40-yards receiving in five of eight games on the season. With quarterback Jameis Winston still fighting through a shoulder injury, Jackson may be more bust than boom when the Bucs host the Jets in Week 10.
Nov 5 - 5:34 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 3-of-8 targets for 37 yards in the Bucs' Week 8 loss to the Panthers.

It just wasn't happening for Jackson on a day where Jameis Winston was wildly inaccurate. The yardage total was Jackson's second lowest of the season, though he's now been held below 40 in 2-of-3 weeks. There will be big play potential in next week's trip to New Orleans, though it's no secret the Saints' pass defense has finally improved.
Oct 29 - 4:54 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 5-of-8 targets for 73 yards in the Bucs' Week 7 loss to the Bills.

He also prevented an early-game interception of Jameis Winston by fighting for the ball against Bills defenders and coming away with a catch. Jackson hasn't had any monster box-score games yet, but he has cleared 70 yards and/or scored a touchdown in four of his last five. Jackson will remain a volatile WR3 play when the Bucs take on the Panthers next.
Oct 22 - 4:37 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

Jackson's prospects were severely hindered when Jameis Winston left with a first-drive shoulder injury, so fantasy owners should be happy to come away with D-Jax's line, which was buoyed by a rare red-zone score from four yards out. Winston promised he will play in Week 7 at Buffalo. Jackson will remain a volatile WR3 option.
Oct 15 - 8:11 PM

DeSean Jackson left the stadium with ice on his right wrist/forearm following the Week 5 loss to the Patriots on Thursday night.

It could be nothing, but it's something worth monitoring into next week. Jackson looked to take a hard fall on a tackle late in the fourth quarter and was being looked at by the training staff on the sideline. He was later in on the final play of the game. Jackson gets a nice draw against Arizona in Week 6.
