Player Outlook

DeSean Jackson signed with the Rams this offseason, and he will look to be a complementary option in their passing game as a deep threat. Jackson isn't worth drafting in the majority of leagues. While he will have some positive moments catching passes from Matthew Stafford, Jackson will definitely be third at best when it comes to targets behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Jackson, 34, also has to stay healthy, and he's appeared in just eight games over the past two seasons. Jackson could end up as a waiver-wire addition during the year, but let him prove he can stay healthy and deserving of targets in a crowded offense.

Player News
  • Jackson showed the speed necessary to be a deep threat during offseason programs and is currently projected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Rams, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports. Multiple injuries have limited Jackson to just eight games over the past two seasons, so it's encouraging to see the speedy veteran healthy heading into the 2021 campaign. However, while he may currently be the favorite for the No. 3 receiver role to start the campaign, sophomore Van Jefferson and 2021 second-round selection Tutu Atwell will be pushing Jackson for playing time. There's potential for Jackson to revitalize his career in head coach Sean McVay's prolific offense, but he might be limited to a deep-threat role with Jefferson likely already the better fit for underneath routes. As a result, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Jackson in most fantasy settings.

  • Jackson could have competition for snaps following the selection of wide receiver Tutu Atwell in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. After playing just eight games the past two years, Jackson signed an incentive-heavy contract with the Rams, which aligns with his inability to stay healthy. He has the potential to fill a deep-threat role for the Los Angeles passing attack, and even factor in on special teams. However, the Rams added Atwell as both a complement and insurance policy because of his speed and ability to stretch the field. Jackson's probably going to slide into a situational role with Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods atop the wide receiver depth chart, and Van Jefferson is likely to take a step forward in his second season.

  • Jackson signed a one-year contract with the Rams on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The Los Angeles native will play for his hometown team, providing a proven deep threat for new Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. Jackson was released by the Eagles last month after appearing in only eight games for Philadelphia over the past two seasons, but he's back to full health and will be eager to prove he still has something left in the tank at age 34.

  • The Eagles released Jackson (ankle) on Friday. Jackson, who only played eight games over two seasons with the Eagles while battling multiple injuries, never appeared to have a real chance at sticking around for 2021. Cutting the 34-year-old will save Philadelphia roughly $4.8 million against the cap, per Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia, and the move will allow Jackson to immediately search for another organization where he can continue his career. Jackson still flashed big-play ability when healthy last season -- he had an 81-yard touchdown against the Cowboys back in Week 16 -- but at this stage in his career, he'll likely have a difficult time finding a starting role in free agency.

  • The Eagles are expected to release Jackson (ankle), John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Philadelphia can save roughly $4.8 million against the salary cap by cutting Jackson, per Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia. Such a move would make real sense for a team currently more than $40 million over the cap for next season and staring down a quarterback transition, with Carson Wentz recently having been traded to Indianapolis. Compounding matters is the fact that Jackson, who turned 34 in December, has only managed to suit up for eight games over the last two seasons due to a combination of injuries. Per Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com, Jackson has already posted a farewell message to the Eagles via his personal Instagram account.
