The volatile speedster has caught touchdowns in two straight games and four of his past six, and he's coming off season highs in catches (10), targets (16) and receiving yards (195). He has a career-high 1,275 receiving yards, third most in franchise history behind Mike Quick (1,409 yards in 1983) and Irving Fryar (1,316 in 1997). Jackson is thriving playing with Nick Foles.
In Week 16 Jackson faces the Bears, who give up the 13th-fewest Fantasy points (21.1 per game) to receivers. The last two No. 1 receivers to face Chicago, Dez Bryant and Josh Gordon, each caught a touchdown but were held to a combined 79 yards.
Still, with the way Jackson is playing, start him as a low-end WR1 or very high-end WR2 on Sunday night.
By the time the
So this item from the Philadelphia Inquirer should come as a relief to Fantasy owners. Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed he won't rest starters -- including quarterback
Still, it's fair to wonder whether Kelly will play them the entire game if Week 17 is all that matters.
Jackson caught 10 passes for 195 receiving yards. That figure easily led the team. Jackson was targeted a team-high 16 times during the game. He hooked up with Nick Foles for a 30 yards score in the third quarter. Jackson nearly had another touchdown, but the play was called back due to an illegal block. Jackson took an end-around for 18 yards, but Foles went low on a block, causing the penalty. The block was completely unnecessary, and Jackson was already a few yards past Foles when he made the block.
Jackson will take on the Bears Week 16.
Jackson snagged a 19-yarder late in the third quarter to put his team on the board after it fell behind, 14-0. It was his last reception, giving him four for 59 yards on the afternoon. Jackson has just seven catches for 95 yards in his last two games combined after catching 13 for 312 yards in his previous three.
He will attempt to get on track when the Eagles play at Minnesota next Sunday.
Though his lack of targets - 21 in the last four games - is a concern, it hasn't hurt his production. Jackson had snagged 13 for 212 yards and two touchdowns in three games heading into the battle against Arizona.
Week 14 foe Detroit doesn't pose a huge problem. The Lions are far superior against the run than the pass and their prolific offense should result in an air war that will give Jackson plenty of opportunities to break loose. He ranks eighth in the NFL with 1,021 yards receiving to go along with seven touchdowns.
Look for Jackson to put up significant numbers against the Lions. Despite his poor showing last Sunday, he remains a No. 1 option in all formats.
