Skins Beat: Team can still move ball without WR DeSean Jackson

Saturday, November 12, 2016, 10:39am

ESPN - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Skins Beat: WR DeSean Jackson, QB Kirk Cousins struggling to get on same page

Tuesday, November 8, 2016, 5:34pm

Washington Post - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.
