  • Jackson caught both his targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 34-14 win over Chicago. He played 14 of 52 offensive snaps. The veteran speedster ranked fourth in offensive snaps among Los Angeles receivers with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson all seeing more playing time. In particular, Jefferson's larger role and 67-yard receiving touchdown don't project favorably for Jackson's fantasy value moving forward. As a result -- and even bearing in mind Jackson's big-play potential -- it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach in most fantasy settings. Additionally, it's likely he remains a high-risk, high-reward asset week in and week out.

  • Jackson has showed off his speed and reaffirmed his deep-threat potential in training camp thus far, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. DaSilva noted that he expects Jackson to play a big role in the Los Angeles offense this season, health permitting. However, fantasy managers will probably want to keep in mind that Jackson has been limited to just eight games over the past two seasons, and the Rams also have Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson in the mix at wide receiver. It's still encouraging that Jackson is quickly developing chemistry with quarterback Matthew Stafford, and the veteran wideout definitely shouldn't be written off just yet.

  • 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.
