Jackson allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters through six innings during Thursday's win over Pittsburgh. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson had surrendered 18 runs through just 10.1 innings over his previous three starts, so this was a strong rebound. He's unlikely to make a start in the playoffs, and he'll finish the regular season with a discouraging 5.21 ERA, WHIP and 7.1 K/9 for the campaign. While there were some promising moments from Jackson at points in the second half, the 34-year-old veteran has proven time and time again over the past number of seasons that's he's not a reliable fantasy asset game in, game out.

Jackson served up six runs on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 4.2 innings in a no-decision Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson served up a pair of home runs to Travis d'Arnaud to spoil any chance of a quality start. He lasted just 77 pitches and failed to complete the fifth inning for the third straight outing. Jackson's ERA is up to 5.26 and it's hard to imagine the Nationals will have much trust for him come October.

Jackson (5-6) allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two across 2.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson allowed three homers over the first two innings and dug a hole that the Nationals were unable to overcome. He's allowed 16 earned runs over his last 11.2 innings covering three starts, and he'll be a difficult player for fantasy managers to trust this late in the season based on his recent performance. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mets.

Jackson (5-5) allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over 3.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson gave up a pair of solo homers in the second inning before allowing three more runners to score in the fourth inning, and he struggled to keep the Phillies' batters off the base paths as he dropped his fifth victory of the season. After finishing the month of August with a 2.94 ERA, he's allowed nine earned runs in his last nine innings covering two starts this month, and his recent downside certainly raises some concerns for fantasy managers down the stretch. He'll make his next start Friday against the Dodgers.

Jackson (5-4) allowed five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five batters through 5.2 innings during Sunday's loss to Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson posted an impressive 2.94 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through his first eight starts with the Nationals, so Sunday's poor showing was a bit of a letdown. It will be interesting to see if Jackson can bounce back in his next outing against the Phillies at Nationals Park. However, with a 4.95 ERA over 645.1 innings from 2012 through 2016, his track record over the past number of years isn't encouraging.

Jackson (5-3) notched the win against the Marlins on Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and four walks over six-plus innings while striking out five.

EDGE Analysis

He left the game with the bases loaded and none out in the seventh inning. but Oliver Perez and Matt Albers combined to shut the door and prevent any further damage from being added to Jackson's ledger. The veteran right-hander has been shockingly reliable since joining the Nats rotation, delivering quality starts in six of his eight outings for the team. He'll try to keep things rolling Sunday on the road against the Brewers.

Jackson (4-3) took the tough lack loss Wednesday in Houston despite allowing just two runs on six hits with three walks and one strikeout over six innings.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson wasn't intimidated by a road matchup with the league's highest-scoring offense, logging his third consecutive quality start. That unfortunately wasn't enough to avoid a loss here, as opposing starter Mike Fiers twirled seven innings of one-run ball. Jackson has been a pleasant surprise considering Washington wasn't expecting the veteran to make any impact at the major league level after acquiring him from Baltimore's minor league system. His 6.00 K/9 limits Jackson's upside Monday against the Marlins, though.

Jackson (4-2) picked up the win with a strong performance Thursday, holding the Padres to one earned run over seven innings. He struck out four batters while issuing one walk and scattering eight hits. Jackson's ERA now sits at a sterling 2.92 since joining the Nationals, a span of

EDGE Analysis

The Padres were able to scratch out eight hits, but the veteran Jackson never panicked as he continually stranded runners to prevent any crooked numbers. Jackson was also uncharacteristically efficient as he needed just 83 pitches to get through seven frames. His ERA since joining the Nationals sits at 2.92, and while his FIP entering Thursday (5.97) suggests that there's likely some regression in store for Jackson, he may be a decent streaming option in deeper leagues down the stretch.

Jackson (3-2) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson gave up a solo homer to Joe Panik in the first inning, but kept the Giants off the board the rest of the way as he collected his third victory of the season. Since joining the Nats, he's limited opponents to two or fewer earned runs, and he owns a 3.30 ERA with his new club. In addition, he's fanned 22 batters over his last 23 innings, and the veteran's been a useful option for fantasy managers. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Padres.

Jackson is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Giants, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He's set to oppose Jeff Samardzija following Friday's postponement, as the Giants decided to push Chris Stratton back to start one game of Sunday's doubleheader. Jackson gave up four runs over five innings his last time out, but he struck out eight without issuing a walk, and now has a 20:5 K:BB in 24 innings with Washington.
