Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (core) is reportedly 'feeling good' and 'clocking 19 miles per hour' in his rehab from the core muscle injury that landed him on the Reserve/Injured list. However, while he is expecting to rejoin the team on the field if they make the playoffs, he is not eligible to return until the divisional round.
Huddle Up: The Eagles will make the playoffs if they beat the New York Giants in Week 17 or if the Dallas Cowboys lose. The difficult part for Philadelphia will be advancing past the wild-card round with a skeleton crew at receiver. While Jackson would likely slot in as Carson Wentz's primary target at receiver if he is able to return, owners in fantasy playoff leagues should consider the entire scenario a longshot.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is running, light sprinting and cutting as he works his way back from sports hernia surgery. He's six weeks removed from surgery in a six-to-eight-week timetable. He's not eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list until the second week of the playoffs, but he could return if the Eagles make it that far.
Huddle Up: Jackson is someone to keep in mind in playoff pools or DFS, but his traditional fantasy season is obviously over.

Updating a previous story, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) will have surgery to repair a core muscle injury Tuesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: The loss of Jackson would leave Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and JJ Arcega-Whiteside as the four relievers on Philadelphia's depth chart. Jeffery has been the only reliable option this year, but Agholor will likely receive enough targets to warrant fantasy flex appeal.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is underdoing second and third opinions Monday, Nov. 4, after his early exit from Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Jackson played just four snaps in his first game since leaving in Week 2. The Eagles have a bye in Week 10 before facing the New England Patriots in Week 11. Fantasy managers shouldn't be planning on having Jackson available for their lineups.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is expected to be fine in a couple of weeks after aggravating his abdominal injury. The Eagles are on a bye next week.
Huddle Up: D-Jax could be back to face the New England Patriots in Week 11, but he's a risky play after already aggravating the injury once. He'll be a WR3 consideration in two weeks.
