This battle pertains to the slot, which should be Marquise Goodwin's to lose -- but Justin Reagor may be playing a bigger role in this battle than we realize. Reagor excelled in the slot at TCU and was excellent at creating yards after the catch, making him a prime candidate to stretch the field and add more speed in the offense by placing him in the slot.
Goodwin has the advantage because of the pandemic, but the story said Reagor is expected to get on the field as well, as the Birds want to have as much speed on the field at one time as they can. It's also possible Reagor could get snaps as the Z wideout, which is where Jackson plays. The Eagles want Reagor to be Jackson's understudy.
PHI WR DeSean Jackson - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Atlanta
Welcome home, DeSean Jackson. The veteran wide receiver returned to Philly with a bang, Jackson caught eight passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns and probably had one of the more surprising performances of Week 1. Jackson's speed is still there despite being 32 years old.
The Eagles will face the Falcons on the road and Atlanta was 20th in aFPA to wide receivers after one week. This is a pretty good matchup for Philly and the Eagles passing game.
Jackson's fantasy stock skyrocketed after one game. He rates a high-end WR3 or flex for Week 2. Pick him up if he still available as he will have fantasy value with the only downside being all the weapons in Philadelphia are going to split up the riches,
