Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 11. It looks like Jackson may be able to make his return this week against the Packers, though he’s still iffy. If he’s out, Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis all get a bump.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. t looks like Jackson may be able to make his return this week against the Packers. If he does play, it would downgrade Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis from their current spots in our rankings.
DeSean Jackson's absence opens up targets for others -- and given the Redskins’ skill-position talent, that’s not bad at all. Jamison Crowder flourishes underneath because he has become an excellent slot receiver, but also because defenses focus extra attention elsewhere.
Jackson’s absence also means more time for Ryan Grant, a practice all-star who has yet to translate that into games. He does not possess deep speed and has never been a threat after the catch and stumbles too often. Perhaps Rashad Ross can scare a defense deep.
The story went on to say without Jackson, ironically, the Redskins might have more chances to go downfield in favorable coverages. Jackson scares teams on multiple routes -- deep crossers, for example; it’s also not just about speed as Jackson tracks the ball very well. Speed alone does not make you dangerous, but it certainly helps.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 10. Jackson has been ruled out, per multiple reports. Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed get a bump, while Ryan Grant will see his snaps increase, though he only has three catches for 27 yards on the year. Vernon Davis may actually be the one who sees a good bump in snaps.

While DeSean Jackson is getting older, he’s not showing many signs of losing his ability as a deep threat, at least in my eyes. The problem is more that Jackson and Kirk Cousins have struggled to get on the same page at times this season.
The story breaks down some of Jackson's routes and mostly puts the blame on Cousins. The author thinks maybe the team tries to find more ways to get Jackson the ball in the second half, as he's averaging less than four catches a game this year. Jackson has usually been a boom or bust play through much of his career which makes him a risky fantasy play most weeks as anything but a WR3 or lower.
Jackson was questionable to return with a "head contusion" the article said and never did make a return.
