Skins WR DeSean Jackson hurts knee, returns

Sunday, September 25, 2016, 5:43pm

CBS Washington - [Full Article]

After hauling in a beautiful 44-yard TD from Kirk Cousins, DeSean Jackson was targeted over the middle on the Redskins’ closing drive before the half but came up limping after trying to dive for the ball in traffic.

DeSean Jackson being evaluated for left knee and ankle injury. Same injuries that limited him earlier this week.

Jackson walked off the field under his own power but with assistance from Redskins personnel.

Fantasy Impact:

Jackson returned to the game in the second half but it's obviously something to keep an eye on. Jackson finished five catches for 96 yards and a TD.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at New York Giants
It's safe to say the wheels are starting to come off for a lot of Kirk Cousins owners. After a second-straight week of unimpressive fantasy production, those who drafted him are looking to cut bait for free agent options. While it may be too soon to do that, Cousins needs to turn things around quickly for his owners and his actual teammates who are starting to speak out against him already. Last week, he did throw for 364 yards and a TD with one INT, so it wasn't a terrible performance but owners have seen much better.

This week the Skins travel to the Giants in what should be a nice matchup. NYG is ranked just 26th in allowing fantasy points to QBs, but it's tough to trust Cousins right now, and as a result he comes in just 20th on our list, making him just an average QB2 play. Keep in mind, the Giants D just held Drew Brees in check. The good news for owners is Cousins has five straight weeks of very favorable matchups and a chance to once again make fantasy owners happy.
