Jackson was a playmaker for the Bears this season, as he forced two fumbles, picked off six passes and scored two touchdowns in addition to securing 51 tackles. Next season, he'll go into the third year of his rookie deal that expires in 2020, and he'll be a great upside pick in IDP leagues, based on his ability to make big plays, but unless he begins to add to his tackle totals, his weekly floor will be problematic.
Jackson (ankle) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
Jackson was listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. The 25-year-old sat out the final two games of the regular season with the right ankle sprain, but is all set to go for the Bears' potential playoff run.

Jackson managed to practice in a limited capacity both Thursday and Friday, marking his first on-field activity since spraining his right ankle against the Packers on Dec. 16. No matter, coach Matt Nagy called Jackson a game-time decision after the latter session. Per Stacey Dales of NFL Network, Jackson himself expects to play, but such a decision won't be confirmed until the Bears release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:40 PM ET kickoff.
Jackson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Jackson hadn't practiced since spraining his right ankle in the Dec. 16 win over the Packers, so this amounts to the first noteworthy progress in the safety's recovery. The Bears remain hopeful the star safety can suit up in this weekend's wild-card matchup with the Eagles, but he may need to increase his activity at Friday's practice for the team to feel truly confident about his availability.
Jackson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The wet field conditions stemming from local rain could have impacted Chicago's decision to keep Jackson off the field. Either way, Jackson's status for Sunday's game remains in limbo. The Bears will do everything they can to ensure one of the league's top safeties can strap up, but it will ultimately come down the decision of the medical staff.
