PHI WR DeSean Jackson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
DeSean Jackson had a better Week 2 after being held to two receptions Week 1. Against the Rams, he had six catches for 64 yards. You might have been expecting those numbers to be his floor and hope they aren't his average. But QB Carson Wentz is struggling and still has trouble connecting with his receivers on a regular basis.
Jackson will face a Bengals who are 25th in aFPA to wide receivers. This might be a chance for the wide receivers to get some fantasy points considering the Cincy defense is still below average.
We haven't seen too much from Jackson yet and with the way the Eagles offense is designed, it's hard to trust he can be a consistent factor. Start Jackson for Week 3 because of the matchup but he only rates a WR3 or Flex against the Bengals.
