Bears' Eddie Jackson: Disappointing regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson tallied four tackles in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Jackson posted a career-high 82 tackles but failed to record an interception for the first time in his four-year career. Although he was an elite playmaker in the earliest part of his career, he's been a middling IDP option since. He'll be back in Chicago next year, as he signed through 2024.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hip) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Jackson was limited in practice this week due to a hip injury, but the 28-year-old apparently isn't in danger of missing his first game since 2018.

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

Jackson (hip) was held to limited participation during the Bears' practice session Thursday.

The two-time Pro Bowl safety was seemingly clear of any health issues while logging full practice reps Wednesday, but a late-week appearance on the injury report raises questions heading into a crucial Week 16 road trip to Jacksonville. The severity of Jackson's hip issue may become more clear by way of Chicago's Christmas Day injury update. The 27-year-old has been far less effective in coverage this season, surrendering a 71.4 percent completion rate with two touchdown passes against him. Between 2018 and 2019, Jackson conceded just a 51.5 percent completion rate with three TDs allowed over 30 games.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Notches seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted seven tackles in the Bears' 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

After recording at least seven tackles in five of the first 10 games, this was the first time since Week 10 that Jackson has tallied more than seven stops. His inconsistency makes him a risky IDP option in Week 16 against the Jaguars.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Activated from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

Jackson appears to have been a high-risk close contact of an infected individual when he was placed on the COVID-19 list earlier in the week, but he's now on track to play Sunday against the Packers after producing multiple negative tests. The Bears' starting free safety has provided at least seven tackles in three of his last four games while also forcing a pair of fumbles during that span.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Moves to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 27-year-old has either tested positive for the virus or was a high-risk close contact of an infected individual. Assuming he doesn't have the virus, Jackson could return in time for Sunday's game against Green Bay if he continues to produce negative tests.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Tennessee, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Jackson began he week not practicing, but the knee issue won't impact his availability for Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old has 49 total tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery through eight games.

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

Jackson (knee) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session.

It's at least progress for the two-time Pro Bowl defensive back, as Jackson was forced to sit out Wednesday's practice entirely and made an appearance on that day's injury report. Jackson was not reported as having an injury during or immediately following Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints, a contest in which he racked up eight tackles and a forced fumble while playing all 74 of Chicago's defensive snaps.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson didn't suit up in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

This is tough news for the secondary of the Bears, as both starting safeties in Jackson and Tashaun Gipson (foot) were listed on the injury report. Expect Jackson's availability in Thursday and Friday's practices to paint a clearer picture for his chances to suit up in Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Another strong performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted eight tackles and a forced fumble in Chicago's 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Jackson has either forced or recovered a fumble in each of the last three weeks, and he's posted his two highest tackle totals over the past two games. After a brief cold spell through most of October, he seems to have re-emerged as a high-upside IDP option.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Available as expected Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 8 tilt against the Saints.

Jackson's ability to finish the practice week as a full participant and subsequent reporting foreshadowed this news, but the 27-year-old now is officially available to take on a short-handed Saints offense. Through seven games this season, Jackson has recorded 41 tackles (32 solo), a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and a defensive touchdown, giving him significant IDP value.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Despite carrying a designation into the matchup, Jackson was able to conclude the week as a full practice participant, which signaled that he wasn't at major risk of sitting out versus New Orleans. The safety should remain a strong IDP option in the secondary after compiling 41 tackles to go with a fumble recovery for a touchdown through the Bears' first seven games.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Questionable despite full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Jackson seems more likely than not to suit up after upgrading to a full practice Friday following a pair of limited sessions. The safety is a key cog on Chicago's robust defensive unit, having racked up 41 tackles. Jackson had his best game of the season in Monday's loss to the Rams, racking up a season-high nine tackles to go with a touchdown on a fumble recovery.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Dealing with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Jackson appears to have picked up a knee injury during Monday's loss to the Rams, in which he scooped up a fumble and returned it for a touchdown. It's encouraging to see that the starting free safety wasn't held out entirely, at least. He'll work to upgrade to full participation ahead of Sunday's contest against the Saints.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Scores touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson returned a fumble for a touchdown while recording nine tackles in Chicago's 24-10 loss to the Rams on Monday.

Jackson was all over the field making tackles, and in the fourth quarter, his aggressiveness had him in the right place at the right time, as he scooped up a fumble and took it to the house. Actually, he's found the end zone three times this year, but the first two times it happened, penalties overturned the scores. With at least six tackles in each of his last four games, he's becoming an IDP with a solid weekly floor.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Posts eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded eight tackles in Chicago's 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.

After returning an interception for an apparent touchdown, Jackson's celebration was terminated after he was flagged for defensive pass interference on the play. Despite the penalty, the big play that was negated reminds fantasy managers of the big-play ability Jackson possesses. Otherwise, the eight tackles he posted was a higher total than he posted in 14 of 16 games last season. In IDP leagues, Jackson is a volatile performer who possesses big weekly upside.

Bears' Eddie Jackson: Posts six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson notched six tackles in the Bears' 27-23 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Although he didn't make any of his signature big plays, Jackson was solid in the season opener. He'll likely continue to post decent tackle totals with the ability to increase his weekly fantasy production by intercepting passes and forcing fumbles.

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.
