Bears' Eddie Jackson: Lands huge extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed a four-year, $58.4 million contract extension with the Bears on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jackson's contract includes $22 million fully guaranteed and $33 million in total guarantees, and his $14.6 million average annual salary is the highest among players at his position. He's been one of the top safeties in the league since the Bears selected him in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, so it makes sense for the team to lock him up for the foreseeable future. Jackson made his second straight Pro Bowl in 2019, and he received first-team All-Pro honors in 2018.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Posts second interception of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson picked off a pass and added a pair of tackles in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he finished the season with 60 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and two interceptions.

Jackson continues to be a solid IDP option, but he's failed to match the impact of his 2017 rookie campaign in either of the last two seasons. As he enters the last year of his contract with the Bears, he'll provide fantasy owners with a stable floor, but unless he can return to his rookie form, he may not be the elite fantasy option that many expected him to be.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Picks off first pass of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson intercepted a pass while adding two tackles in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.

After establishing himself as an elite playmaker during 2018, Jackson counts only Thursday's interception and a forced fumble earlier in the season as his only true impact plays of the current campaign. With just 4.5 tackles per game, he's a fairly ordinary IDP option at the safety position.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Tallies 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded 10 tackles in Chicago's 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

With the Eagles leading this contest from early on, they piled up 35 rushing attempts, allowing Jackson to have a very productive afternoon. On the season, he's yet to record a forced fumble, interception or sack, and this is only the second time all season he's posted more than four tackles. Despite his proven track record as a playmaker, he currently isn't an asset in IDP leagues.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Full go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

This is the second week in a row that Jackson was limited in practice, but there was never much concern regarding his health. As a result of his full practice, Jackson was removed from the injury report Friday and should be good to go come Sunday afternoon.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Remains limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Jackson was questionable for Week 3 but played 67 of 77 defensive snaps, and had three tackles and a fumble recovery. The 26-year-old appears on track to be available for Sunday's contest against the Vikings, but he'll likely need to return to full practice participation if he's to avoid another injury designation.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Ready for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder/knee) will play in Monday's road clash against the Redskins.

After logging a full practice session Friday, Jackson regressed to a limited participant Saturday, making his status for the game squarely uncertain. As evidenced by this news, he'll be out there, and he's firmly on the IDP radar after making 10 tackles in Week 2's win over the Broncos. Expect Jackson to assume his regular role as the team's starting free safety for the game.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Listed as questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against Washington.

After practicing fully Friday, Jackson was listed as a limited practice participant Saturday, a status downgrade that corresponded with the addition of a knee issue on top of his previously listed shoulder injury. Jackson is on the IDP radar after recording 10 tackles in the Week 2 win over the Broncos, but his questionable designation presents an element of risk for fantasy coaches, given the Bears' late kickoff this week.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Practicing without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Jackson looks to be ready for Monday's game versus the Redskins. He's played nearly every snap this season as the Bears' starting free safety, making 12 tackles (eight solo) and two pass breakups. Jackson's IDP value is decent at this time, but increasing his work in coverage could push him up a tier. Case Keenum has been solid this year, though, throwing five touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Campbell notes that Jackson finished Sunday's victory over Denver and that the injury seemingly isn't serious enough to keep him out of Monday's matchup with Washington. Regardless, the 26-year-old's status throughout practice this weekend will be worth monitoring, as it will be more telling of the actual severity of his injury.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson collected 10 tackles in Chicago's 16-14 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Although he's yet to make one of his signature big plays in either of the first-two games of the season, he made up for it by having a rare 10-tackle performance. He's must-own player in IDP leagues because very few defensive backs have the ability to make as many big plays as he has in the past.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Rested in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was held out of Chicago's win over the Colts on Saturday.

Jackson was an IDP force last year and ended the season on fire, with four interceptions over his last five games. Although those numbers will be tough to sustain, given he plays behind one of the better front sevens in the league, he should be considered as a high-upside option at safety.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Spectator in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite being active, Jackson (ankle) didn't see game action in the Bears' 16-15 playoff loss to the Eagles.

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. However, unless he begins to add to his tackle totals, his weekly floor will be problematic.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Ready to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 he's all set to go for the Bears' potential playoff run.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Status remains up in air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Eagles.

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.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Advances to limited participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Jackson hadn't practiced since spraining his right ankle in the Bears' 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.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Held out of Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The wet field conditions could have impacted Chicago's decision to keep Jackson off the field for their first official practice of the week. Either way, Jackson's status for Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Eagles remains in limbo after the right ankle sprain sidelined him for the final two regular-season contests. The Bears will do everything they can to ensure one of the league's top safeties can strap up, but his availability will ultimately come down to a decision from the medical staff.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Not playing in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Listed as doubtful heading into the weekend, Jackson was never a likely bet to suit up in the regular-season finale. Though the star safety will miss a second straight game, he should have a decent chance at making it back for the postseason, especially if Chicago is able to clinch a first-round bye with a win Sunday coupled with a Rams loss to the 49ers. Deon Bush is in line to make another start in Jackson's stead.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Jackson sat out last week's win over the 49ers due to a sprained ankle, and is trending towards remaining sidelined for the season finale. Given that the Bears can only move up to the No. 2 seed in the NFC if the 49ers manage to defeat the Rams, it appears likely that Chicago will rest Jackson for the playoffs.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Won't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy relayed Jackson (ankle) will be a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "We think [Jackson is] getting better," Nagy said.

Jackson has been a lynchpin of the Bears' dominant defense this season, totaling 51 tackles, six interceptions, three touchdowns, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one sack in 14 games. A sprained right ankle is affecting him down the stretch, and while a first-round bye is on the line this weekend in Minnesota, the Bears likely are more focused on getting Jackson healthy for the playoffs.
