    • Nationals' Edwin Jackson: Fans seven in no-decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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, 1.51 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. 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. 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.

    • Nationals' Edwin Jackson: Allows five runs again
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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 off the basepaths as he dropped his fifth victory of the season. After finishing August with a 2.94 ERA, he's allowed 10 runs (nine earned) 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.

    • Nationals' Edwin Jackson: Allows five runs in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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.
