2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
DeSean got paid. The good news is that we won’t have to read and hear about how DeSean wants to get paid. The bad news is his high fantasy risk factor just went through the roof. Heck, high character players generally see a decline in production after getting their first big contract. Considering Jackson’s refusal to go over the middle last season as well as his alligator arms routine when forced to make a catch in traffic, getting his first big deal could put an even bigger damper on his production than his pouting, me first attitude did in 2011. The guy is extremely talented and might just be the best big play threat in the league next to Calvin Johnson but he has been a one trick pony for most of his career and there aren’t many reasons to expect that to change in 2012. Another 1,000 yards and six or seven touchdowns seems likely but a repeat of his 4th ranked fantasy wide receiver performance in 2009 is a pipe dream. Somebody is going to buy the dream. Don’t let it be you.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeSean Jackson leaves practice early     -- Wed Aug 6 2:45 pm --

Could miss preseason opener
RICHMOND — Early in Wednesday morning’s walkthrough, the horde of fans lining the practice field let out a collective groan. Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson swatted down a pass in his direction, hobbling off the field while favoring his left ankle. Jackson later walked off the field with his ankle wrapped in white tape, watched part of practice from the trainers’ table and did not return. (Washington Times)

FF Today's Take: Head Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's availability for Thursday night will depend on how his treatment goes. By most accounts it doesn't look like this is a major cause for concern to fantasy owners. Nevertheless, Washington may want to play it safe considering fellow wideout Pierre Garcon (hamstring) has already been ruled out.
Jordan Reed impressive in scrimmage vs. Pats     -- Mon Aug 4 4:30 pm --

Pats reporter believes TE is in line for big season
Jordan Reed looks like a star. He was open all practice, and hauled in a really nice catch over the out-stretched arms of Darrelle Revis and Devin McCourty along the sideline. Reed is in line for a big season, especially with the Redskins having so many weapons at receiver (DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts). (Boston Globe)

FF Today's Take: Reed has suffered four concussions dating back to college and it is that injury history that appears to be his biggest obstacle en route to becoming an elite fantasy tight end. While he can't be expected to maintain the 90-catch pace he had in eight games last season with a much less talented receiving corps, he figures to compete with Garcon to be the team's leader in touchdown catches.
D-Jax expected to inherit "Z" receiver role     -- Thu Jul 17 4:35 pm --

A.J. Green played same position for Gruden in Cincinnati
DeSean Jackson could play a role similar to A.J. Green, who played the Z role in Cincinnati under former OC Jay Gruden, allowing him to line up a yard off the line of scrimmage. Both Green and Jackson are legitimate deep threats that defenses have to account for on every play. Pierre Garcon will likely continue under Gruden. The X receiver lines up on the line of scrimmage and as a result faces more press-man coverage. Marvin Jones worked his way into the X receiver role in Cincinnati, running similar routes to the ones we’ve become accustomed to Garcon running in Washington. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: Garcon at "X" and Jackson at "Z" was the assumption all along since Garcon is bigger and already accustomed to the role while the smaller Jackson will be afforded space to begin his route. Garcon is the odds-on favorite to lead the team in all receiving categories since he is Robert Griffin III's go-to guy, but perhaps Jackson will be more than just a deep threat in what should be a highly-explosive offense.
Injury DeSean Jackson nursing strained hamstring     -- Wed Jun 11 2:20 pm --

Back at practice, not yet 100%
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson this week returned to action after spending last week on the sideline nursing a strained hamstring. Jackson tweaked his hamstring two weeks ago, during the Redskins’ first week of offseason practices, and he sat out last week’s session while allowing it to heal. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: Jackson went through practice Wednesday without incident but was a little tentative out of breaks. Head coach Jay Gruden called it a "minor deal" so fantasy owners shouldn't be overly concerned at this time.
