Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) is dealing with a groin injury suffered in the first half of the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Jackson was seen on the sideline trying to jog off his injury after emerging from the medical tent. He was also seen slamming his helmet on the bench in the disgust, which is a bit of an ominous sign.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Desean Jackson (undisclosed) left the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons due to an undisclosed injury. He went to the medical tent, and was seen after limping on the sideline.
Huddle Up: Jackson looks like he is trying to walk it off, whatever he is dealing with, so fantasy owners can be happy about that. The Eagles need him, as they were blanked on offense in the opening quarter.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (finger) suffered a broken ring finger on his left hand during practice Tuesday, Aug. 27. Jackson is not expected to miss any time with the injury, and the team does not appear to be concerned about it either.
Huddle Up: It's a bump in the road for the oft-injured Jackson, but he should have plenty of time between now and Week 1 to get used to whatever tape job or brace the training staff decides is best for him. Assuming he makes the adjustment, Jackson is primed for a big season playing in a high-powered offense with a quarterback almost perfectly suited to his skill-set. He should be considered a high-end WR3 option in most 12-team leagues.

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.
