DeSean Jackson looking like a good fit
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If Week 3 at Philadelphia is any indication, the switch from Robert Griffin III to Kirk Cousins at quarterback will only help Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson. He turned in his biggest play of the young season against his former team, beating the secondary down the middle of the field for an 81-yard touchdown.

It wouldn't have been possible without Cousins, though. The former fourth-round pick has an accurate deep ball. On this particular play, he threw it from the Redskins' 10-yard line, and Jackson caught it at the Eagles' 30. It was a perfect strike 60 yards downfield. 

So now in three games with his new team, Jackson has put up quality numbers twice. He had eight catches for 62 yards with Griffin under center in Week 1, when he didn't get a chance to stretch the field, and five catches for 117 yards with Cousins under center in Week 3, when he did. His one poor showing was when he bruised his shoulder on the Redskins' second drive in Week 2 and had to leave. Hard to blame him for that.

Jackson wasn't ranked especially high coming into the year because of the change of scenery and the threat of Pierre Garcon, but let's not forget he was the ninth-best wide receiver in standard leagues last year, the 15th-best in 2010 and the sixth-best in 2009. I say we treat him as such going forward. The Giants certainly aren't a threat to his production Thursday night, ranking 22nd against the pass.

Receivers could go against the norm Thursday
by Chris Towers |

Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start.
