New reality show not painting DeSean Jackson in the best light - [Full Article]

DeSean Jackson's reality show on BET isn't exactly painting him in a good light.

Jackson, in a private moment with cameras, then admits that he has perhaps lost his way since his father, Bill, passed away in 2009.

"When I have football, I'm focused. Then once the off time comes, it's like, 'Ok, what's next?'" Jackson says. "When my dad was here, it was always, 'Ok, we're working out, we're training, we're training. But when my dad passed away, I did a lot of crazy things. I partied, I was spending money I shouldn't have spent...because I don't have that dominant voice to tell me I'm trippin."

His brother, Byron, also speaks to the bad influences around DeSean.

"My dad was very protective of who DeSean came out with and some of his friends," Byron says. "Since my dad passed, some of the friends have come back around, and they weren't good news for DeSean."

"There are definitely some people around I question," Jackson's sister, A'Dreea, says of his friends. "Their life is just like a big party."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson had a good first season in Washington, but he was playing with a chip on his shoulder after being released by the Eagles. He used that as motivation to post 5-117-1 against Philly in Week 3 and 4-126 in Week 16. When the two Eagles games are excluded, DeSean Jackson played at a 58-1140-6.1 pace. Those are fringe WR2 numbers in PPR and solid WR2 numbers in standard formats. Will he play with the same motivation in 2015?
