Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) isn't expected to play Weeks 4 and 5

While the timetable remains TBD, my understanding is Eagles WR DeSean Jackson isn't expected to play Sunday against the #Lions because of his groin injury and a quick turnaround to Thursday night game vs. Packers will make that tough, too. Less speed on the field.

Related players: Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins, Alshon Jeffery, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside

Fantasy Impact: 

Word around Philly was Jackson had a better chance to play this week than Jeffery, so this isn't a good sign for the Eagles offense for the next two weeks. Agholor will likely benefit the most and will also try to take over as the team's deep threat with Jackson out. Hollins and Arecega-Whiteside will see more time if Jeffery is out, too. The Birds could go with more two TE sets, but Dallas Goedert's status is also in question after a Week 2 injury.
