DeSean Jackson WR PHI 2 Days
DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 59 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Lions.
Jackson's owners should feel relieved they got this line. With eight inches of snow on the ground, D-Jax's speed and cutting ability was completely neutralized. His 19-yard touchdown came when Nick Foles threw up a can of corn and Chris Houston quit on the play because he thought his man was out of bounds. Jackson will have legit WR1 upside against at Minnesota's brutal pass defense in Week 15.

DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.
Jackson was shadowed by Patrick Peterson for much of the day and lost. He was targeted just six times as Nick Foles found better matchups with his tight ends against the Cards' linebackers and safeties. The sledding will be much easier next week when the Eagles face the Lions' inept secondary (and then the Vikings in Week 15, Bears in Week 16). Jackson is now on pace to catch a career-high 81 passes for 1,361 yards with nine touchdowns.

DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 82 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.
Jackson could have done far more damage if the team needed it. He saw just four targets and Eagles sprinted out to a 24-0 lead. D-Jax continues to impress as an all-around route runner this year and will take a 58/985/7 line into the Week 12 bye. He'll see Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals in Week 13, but will remain a fine WR1 with Nick Foles playing at such a high level.

DeSean Jackson attributes his 2013 success to finally "buying into the system" as a sixth-year pro.
"I just really bought in all across the board. Never really had done that in the past, maybe sometimes fighting the system," Jackson said. "Staying focused and doing all the extra little things, being a teammate, being a leader. Staying after practice later, working hard, little things that being young, never took the importance of doing that." Sitting at 54 catches for 903 yards and seven touchdowns after ten games, Jackson is on pace for career-bests in every category. He's fantasy's No. 4 overall receiver.

DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 80 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 win at Green Bay.
Jackson got the party started when he caught a deflection off the hands of Packers CB Tramon Williams for a 55-yard touchdown in the first quarter. It was his second straight game with a touchdown and he's up to seven on the season. With Nick Foles willing to push the ball deep down the field, there's upside to sustain that rate. Jackson will be a borderline WR1 against the Redskins in Week 11.

DeSean Jackson (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Jackson briefly exited Week 7 with an ankle issue but later returned and played in Week 8, as well. There's nothing to see here. Jackson has had a rough past couple weeks with Matt Barkley taking snaps. Nick Foles is going to start Sunday against the Raiders. Jackson is a locked-in WR1 for Week 9.
