Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was '85, 90 percent' in Week 15

ESPN - [Full Article]

After averaging 27.48 yards per catch from Weeks 5-9, Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has cooled off. Since that time, he's averaged 12.36 yards on 14 catches -- though he was missed on two deep balls vs. Tampa Bay in Week 11.

His knee injury hasn't helped.

"Just trying to get back to 100 percent," Jackson said. "Last week I was 85, 90 percent so hopefully this week I'll feel better."

What he doesn't feel like doing is talking about the Eagles.

"I just don't really care too much for it," he said. "The first game was the first time playing them. Now a whole season went on. They're playing and I'm playing here. I don't put too much energy into that and outside of that I don't care too much about it."

Fantasy Impact: 

His owners are hoping for a repeat of the 5-117-1 line he posted on 11 targets back in Week 3, but Jackson has had one good game since the team's bye in Week 10. His comments make it sound as if he's not too focused on the revenge factor, but we find that a little hard to believe. The Redskins have a chance to knock the Eagles out of the playoff hunt, so they should be plenty motivated even in the middle of a dysfunctional season.
