DeSean Jackson makes the offense so much more dynamic.
Yes, it’s only the offseason program. Yes, there is only minimal contact. Yes, Carson Wentz can’t be hit.
Still, the connection and timing between Wentz and Jackson has been on point throughout the offseason program. Eagles coach Doug Pederson pointed out that Jackson spent the entire offseason in Philadelphia working with Wentz. Their chemistry could benefit the rest of the offensive playmakers, as opposing defenses will need to respect their connection.
DeSean Jackson adds quickness and a deep threat to Philly's offense this season. Not only will having Jackson on the field benefit Wentz but Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery should all see more breathing room with safeties focusing more on Jackson. Jeffery currently owns the highest ADP of the Eagles' wideouts as WR30, followed by Jackson as WR47 and Agholor being selected as WR79. Jackson is projected to score 151 PPR points by our forecaster John Paulson, and as a ninth-rounder, presents solid value in 2019.
TB WR DeSean Jackson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Dallas Cowboys
DeSean Jackson is expected back this week after missing the last three games. Jackson wasn't producing much before he left, so don't expect a triumphant return, especially in a tough matchup against the Cowboys. He still has game-breaking speed giving him a high ceiling, but his low floor makes him a risk. There's a chance someone between Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries and Jackson has a good game, but it's hard to know who. Jackson isn't much more than a WR4.
