Jackson caught five of his eight targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Although the bulk of his production came on a 56-yard score in the first quarter, Jackson was able to produce his best game of the season, leading the Redskins in targets and yards. Jackson finally appears to be fully healthy and he should see his share of targets on a weekly basis. He is a threat to produce a big play at any time, and will look to build on this performance against the Giants in Week 12.
Jackson has declared he is fully recovered from a hamstring injury that kept him out prior to last week, the Washington Post reports. Jackson should not be hindered by the injury from here on out. Jackson caught two passes in Week 10 including a 42 yarder on the opening drive. He is expected to start opposite Pierre Garcon and should be a top target from here on out.
Jackson caught two of five targets for 44 yards Sunday against the Saints. Fantasy owners were licking their chops with a Week 10 matchup against one of the league's worst pass defenses, but unfortunately Jackson wasn't able to produce much despite quarterback Kirk Cousins passing for 324 yards on four touchdowns. In fact, Cousins had only five incompletions in the game, with three coming on throws to Jackson. Cousins' touchdowns went to tight end Jordan Reed (two), running back Matt Jones and wide receiver Jamison Crowder, and he's only looked Jackson's way 11 times in the last two games. Given Cousins' ability -- or preference -- to spread the ball around, Jackson's upside appears to be somewhat limited. Up next is a tough Week 11 trip to Carolina.
Jackson (hamstring) caught three passes on six targets for 15 yards Sunday against the Patriots. Playing for the first time since Week 1, Jackson did very little to make an impact Sunday, though the plus is that he didn't seem overly bothered by the hamstring issue. He'll look to bounce back in Week 10 against a Saints defense that has allowed the most receiving touchdowns in the league this season.
Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game in New England. Suiting up for the first time since Week 1, Jackson could be an immediate asset for Washington, who are apt to be in catch-up mode early and often. Over the past three contests, the Patriots have allowed at least 16 catches per game and four touchdowns to wide receivers.
