Despite failing to secure a single tackle, Jackson had a huge fantasy day by intercepting Kirk Cousins and returning it for a score. Over his last eight games, he's intercepted three passes, recovered a fumble and posted a sack, while notching two total scores. That productive stretch has rendered him an upside IDP option.
Although he's had a number of weak fantasy performances throughout the season, he's intercepted a pair of passes along with a sack before this week's big stat line. Based on the number of big plays he's made in his two seasons with the Bears, he's the type of player on whom fantasy managers can gamble if in need of an upside performance.
Jackson intercepted a pass while adding three stops in Chicago's victory over the Buccaneers.
Jackson now has two interceptions along with a sack in four games, and although he's yet to post more than three tackles in a game, his big-play ability gives him significant weekly upside.
Jackson picked off a pass while adding three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 16-14 victory over the Cardinals.
Jackson has yet to record more than three tackles in a game in 2018, but he's had a sack and an interception over the last two weeks, which is an example of the upside he showed on occasion last year when he was a rookie. Although he's not yet a star IDP, his weekly upside makes him a strong streaming option.
Jackson collected 11 stops in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings, ending the season with 73 tackles, two touchdowns, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 16 games.
Jackson was an uneven IDP performer over the Bears' first 11 games, but recorded at least five tackles in each of his last five games while averaging seven tackles during that span. He'll enter the second year of his four-year rookie deal in 2018 and should be considered a top IDP at the safety position, as he should continue to show improvement with a full season under his belt.
