Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has made 'at least one splash play' during each practice, according to to Tim McManus of ESPN.com, and McManus believes Jackson is going to 'do some damage this season.'
Huddle Up: The combination of Jackson's speed and the big arm of Carson Wentz could be a match made in fantasy football heaven. He's worth scooping up in the later rounds of redraft leagues, and his ability to produce big plays makes him especially appealing in best ball formats.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is 'a complete player' who can 'do anything that he wants,' according to offensive coordinator Mike Groh. Jackson appears to be rejuvenated by his return to Philadelphia and is thrilled with head coach Doug Pederson's offense, telling NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank that 'we got some dope stuff in this year' and the 'kind of stuff (Pederson) has up his sleeve for this offense ... is unbelievable.'
Huddle Up: Jackson is a screaming value at his mid-10th round ADP, and it's only a matter of time before owners start catching on to what insiders have known for a few months - Carson Wentz and Jackson are about as perfect of a match as any fantasy owner could hope for. There is a distinct possibility Jackson ends up beating his ADP by three or four rounds.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson 'can still go,' according to QB Carson Wentz. 'I think we're going to do something special with him,' Wentz said.
Huddle Up: While Jackson may still have the speed to produce big plays, he is going to have a tough time being a consistent contributor in Philadelphia's crowded receiving corps. Consider him an all-or-nothing WR5, and Jackson is probably more valuable in DFS contests than in redraft leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, according to Pro Football Focus, had at least one step of separation on 67.6 percent of his targets in 2018, which ranked fifth among the 72 wideouts with at least 50 targets.
Huddle Up: Jackson is going from one crowded pass-catching corps (Buccaneers) to another, and he remains a boom-or-bust WR4/5 pick.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been embracing his role as a veteran and leader this offseason, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. The 32-year-old was present for all but one session of voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) practices. 'He's done everything we've asked him to do,' receivers coach Carson Walch said. 'He's been great in the meeting room. Some of our young guys sometimes are in awe seeing DeSean Jackson in our building.'
Huddle Up: Jackson's expected to start on the right side for the Eagles, opposite Alshon Jeffery with Nelson Agholor in the slot. He led the league with 18.9 yards per reception with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season and finished with 774 yards and four touchdowns in just 12 games. His best games have been difficult to predict in the past, but he has a lot of upside as a WR3.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is a top candidate for the punt returner job this season, according to special teams coordinator Dave Fipp.
Huddle Up: Jackson should have a role in the passing game, so it is not known if he will be the full-time returner. He is still a deep threat because of his speed and could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, March 14, is 'excited' about re-signing with the team and blamed his 2014 offseason release on former Eagles coach Chip Kelly, not general manager Howie Roseman. 'One thing I can say about Howie Roseman, we always had a great relationship,' Jackson said. 'Even when I went on and played in Washington and played in Tampa Bay, anytime I was able to see him on the field pregame, he always came up and just gave me a hug. Once again, it was a bittersweet situation. We all know how I was released.'
Huddle Up: Jackson, now 32, was limited to 12 games and caught only 41 passes -- the second-lowest mark of his 11-year career -- but did average a league-best 18.9 yards per reception. There is ample competition in Philly, though, for targets so don't count on Jackson being much than a big-play dependent WR4 once again.

Huddle Up: Jackson returns to the Eagles and should be a deep threat on the outside for Philly in 2019. He should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. It is not known what the Buccaneers will receive in the trade.
Huddle Up: Chris Godwin will receive a bigger role in the passing game with Jackson leaving. He was targeted 95 times this past season and finished with 842 yards and seven touchdowns. Godwin has a chance to be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues and could become a weekly starting option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will be acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. It is not known what the Buccaneers will receive in the trade.
Huddle Up: Jackson has posted less than 800 yards in each of the last two seasons but should still be a deep threat for the Eagles next season. He likely will see a solid amount of targets and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
