2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/20): D-Jax did not catch a pass through the first eight weeks because of a hamstring injury suffered early in Week 1. Upon his return, he has been less than spectacular. He's played two full games and has just five receptions for 59 yards. Jackson still has major boom-or-bust upside, nevertheless, he will need to pick it up quickly to salvage his Fantasy season.
There is no denying the electric playmaking of Mr. Jackson. For the second time in his career, DeSean has averaged over 20 yards per catch, which has led to the league-high in both seasons. He has four 1,000-yard receiving years with 38 career TDs in his 102 career games. Early in 2014, Jackson battled a shoulder injury and later in the year a shin issues that cost him a game. DeSean had six 100-yard games with only two games with more than 10 targets. As electric as his game is when he finds the open field, Jackson had seven games with three catches or less. His success last season led to him finishing as the 23rd-highest scoring WR in PPR leagues despite three short games due to injuries while only receiving the 49th-most targets at the WR position. In addition, the deep passing window was extremely limited due to 58 sacks allowed by the Redskins. DeSean has impact value, but his highs and lows make him a better WR3 in fantasy leagues. Unfortunately, his value will be a mid-tier WR2. With a full season of health, Jackson should be line for a 70-plus catch season for 1,200-plus yards and about a half dozen TDs. His early ADP is 61 as the 27th WR off the board. I see him as a possible value with right team structure.
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson
Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is finally rounding into form after missing extensive time with a hamstring injury. As we report every week, Jackson is expected to see more targets this week. This time head coach Jay Gruden insists that they have to get him the ball. We have to try to get him more looks," Gruden said.Fantasy Analysis:
This actually does matter. With the unfortunate state of the NFC East, the Redskins could end the week in first place. More importantly, D-Jax could be a major contributor through the Fantasy playoffs. He's kind of been a forgotten about man, but don't be shocked if he comes on strong down the stretch.

|5.08||#28 World Ranked - Jackson is coming off a very strong year catching 82 passes (3/4 of his targets) for 1132 yards and 9 TD's. If he can approximate that in Washington, he's a steal here.|
