DeSean Jackson

Recommended Posts

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports DeSean Jackson has "increasingly" been working from the slot during training camp.

With Chris Godwin ready to take on a bigger role, it makes sense to see what Jackson can do from the inside. Coming off a down year, Stroud notes Jackson is "having a great training camp," but it is fair to worry about his target share with so many competent pass catchers on the roster. Jackson is just a late-round flier.

The Athletic's Greg Auman reports DeSean Jackson (concussion) is also dealing with a shoulder injury.

Auman calls Jackson a "major question mark" for Week 2 against the Eagles. D-Jax absolutely lit up the Saints in the opener to the tune of a 5-146-2 outing, finishing as the overall WR3 for Week 1 behind Michael Thomas and Tyreek Hill. Chris Godwin is expected to soak up snaps against Philly.

If you got him, dump him now because it's back low volume and watching passes sail 10 yards over his head. Sell high. Ya got 2 weeks to dump him. 100 yards in 1st half with FITZ. 1 catch on 3 targets for 5 yards with Winston. Evans will be a target monster because, with his size, he and Brate can get their hands on those bad throws.

#Bucs WR DeSean Jackson requested a trade from Tampa Bay, sources say. The team has resisted. But an intriguing name to watch.

IMHO may depend on today's game. If TB loses they may be more likely to deal him.

I‘d be pissed too if they took away my #FitzMagic!

DeSean Jackson is visiting a specialist in New York to seek a second opinion on his hand/thumb injury.

Jackson injured his thumb in Week 11, and it evidently did not get better against the 49ers. Jackson caught just 3-of-8 targets for 19 yards. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Bucs must issue their first Week 13 injury report.

ESPN Bucs reporter Jenna Laine believes it's "quite possible" the Bucs hold DeSean Jackson (thumb) out the remainder of the season.

Fantasy footballers can only hope that's the case, as Chris Godwin explodes any time he's given starter's snaps. Godwin just had a 5-101-1 day against the Panthers on a season-high 80% of the snaps last week and has long been deserving of that role. Jackson isn't part of the future and remains "frustrated" in Tampa Bay, according to Laine. He's likely to be released in the offseason now that the guaranteed money is up on his deal. Godwin's arrow is screaming upward.

DeSean Jackson - WR -  Buccaneers

DeSean Jackson (thumb) is hopeful to play again this season, but he hasn't been able to squeeze the ball at all.

Jackson still has his injured thumb immobilized after re-injuring it in Week 11, so things would need to quickly change for him to have any shot at playing in Week 15. For now, expect Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin to fill in behind Mike Evans while Jackson follows the doctor's timetable for return, but all three receivers are in a tough spot playing on the road against the Ravens. Humphries and Godwin will be risky WR3 options on Sunday, assuming Jackson is unable to play.

DeSean Jackson (Achilles') did not practice Thursday.

He also sat out Wednesday's practice. It does not look like Jackson will suit up this week, and with news he wants out of Tampa Bay, it is possible he has played his final snap for the Bucs. Jackson is currently sitting on 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games this season.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports DeSean Jackson wants to "move on" from the Bucs this offseason.

Anderson says Jackson believes it would be "beneficial for him to be in a new environment and to get a fresh start." Jackson started out hot with three 100-yard games in the first four weeks, but he has been limited to 24 catches for 350 yards and one touchdown in eight games since and, according to Anderson, had "an exchange" with coach Dirk Koetter about missing practice time. Able to save $10 million by cutting him, the Bucs would likely choose to move on from Jackson even if the receiver wanted to stick around. Chris Godwin's Dynasty arrow is pointing up.

DeSean Jackson - WR -  Buccaneers

NBC Philly's John Clark reports DeSean Jackson "would really like" to play for the Eagles next season.

This comes after ESPN reported Jackson wants to move on from the Bucs. Jackson has a pending sale on his house in Tampa. With Golden Tate and Mike Wallace not expected to be re-signed, Jackson would give the Eagles an outside receiver to pair with Alshon Jeffery and allow Nelson Agholor to work exclusively in the slot. Jackson missed four games to injuries this year but didn't show much decline when on the field, leading the NFL with 18.9 YPR. The Eagles have one of the worst cap situations in the league, so Jackson would need to accept a team-friendly deal to return.

Not surprised he's from LA and would be a home coming for him. It'd be good for him as he wouldn't have to be the guy there and he has a QB who respects women, doesn't steal crab legs and doesn't throw the football 10 ft over guys heads.

Wonder what WR5 on the depth chart pays.

ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the Bucs are shopping DeSean Jackson.

The Eagles are reportedly the preferred destination for the 32-year-old speedster, but it remains unclear if Philadelphia would be willing to trade for him or wait and see if he's eventually released. Jackson spent his first six seasons with the Eagles, but former coach Chip Kelly surprisingly released him following a career year (82/1,332/9) in March 2014. "I'd say all options are on the table," GM Jason Licht said when asked about Jackson. As it stands, the 11-year vet is set to earn $10 million in the final year of his contract this upcoming season.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports the Bucs "are not finding any takers" for DeSean Jackson.

Russini reports the Bucs plan to keep Jackson on the roster "for now." It is unlikely Tampa will find a team willing to take on Jackson's $10 million salary, especially since the perception is they will end up cutting him at some point. Jackson reportedly hopes to return to the Eagles if (once) he is released.

DeSean Jackson has not been officially released. So he's basically ended it himself via that IG post.

Pulled an AB declaring himself a Free agent.

Rotoworld take:

Quote

Eagles acquired WR DeSean Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Buccaneers in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round pick.

They also signed him to a new three-year, $27 million deal. It's a huge get for the Eagles, whose 2018 offense severely lacked a vertical presence after Mike Wallace went down in Week 2. Jackson never quite gelled with Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay, but he continued to show take-the-top-off speed when targeted and has an abundance of juice left in the tank, even at age 32. Last year, Jackson averaged 18.9 yards per catch. In fantasy, Jackson will remain a high-variance producer behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery in the pecking order for targets.
