The Rams let Josh Reynolds walk and replaced him with Jackson. The move caps Van Jefferson's upside whenever Jackson is healthy. If being "injury-prone" is a thing, potential drafters should have serious questions about Jackson's ability to stay on the field. Since his age-30 season, Jackson has played 15, 14, 12, 3 and 5 games in the last five seasons. Rams HC Sean McVay was the OC in Washington from 2014-2016, when Jackson posted receiving lines of 56-1169-6 (in 15 games), 30-528-4 (in nine games) and 56-1005-4 (in 15 games). That last line was from his age-30 season, so it was several injuries ago. A game-changer when healthy, Jackson is worthy of a late-round pick in best ball formats but is likely to hit the waiver wire in redraft leagues.
LAR WR DeSean Jackson - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 vs Cardinals
Jackson had his best week as a Ram Week 3, collecting three catches for 120 yards and a score. His speed still plays as he showed his ability to run past defenders despite being 35 years old. A limited role may benefit the veteran in an effort to keep him healthy all season, but if he were to find a way to surpass Van Jefferson on the team’s depth chart he would be in consideration as a top 50 receiver weekly. Until then Jackson is more of a DFS target than a season-long option.
