Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been fined an undisclosed amount by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. The team said they intend to keep Jackson on the roster.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players may want to keep an eye on the situation to see if anything changes with Jackson. He is expected to be one of the starting receivers for the Eagles and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson could be nearing the end of his time with the team for anti-Semitic comments he recently posted on one of his social media accounts. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the team's decision to keep Jackson on the roster could come down to whether or not the nature of the posts he made is a 'default' under his contract. Schefter, who also reports Jackson is guaranteed $4.8 million in salary in 2020 and has already received a $2 million option bonus, suggests the Eagles could try to figure out a way to recoup his guaranteed salary first before parting ways with the receiver.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is in 'the best shape of his life,' according to Adam Caplan of the Inside the Birds podcast.
Huddle Up: While these kinds of reports are always nice to see to confirm where a player is in his return from injury, they are a dime a dozen during the offseason. Durability has always been Jackson's biggest bugaboo. If he can play 12 to 14 games this season, he will almost certainly be one of the best value picks in fantasy. The odds of him doing that is exactly why he isn't going to go until the middle or late rounds of most drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be the top receiving threat this upcoming season if he is able to stay healthy, according to NJ.com's Mike Kaye.
Huddle Up: Jackson dealt with injuries last season but is a deep threat in the passing game when healthy. Fantasy players should keep an eye on him during training camp because he could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is healthy.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson average depth of target is 17.6 yards since 2015 -- the highest figure in the league by 1.6 yards over that span.
Huddle Up: While defensive backs struggle to keep up with D-Jax, the injury bug has caught up with the 33-year-old wideout of late as he's played in only 15 games since the start of the 2018 season. Jackson only played in three games last season in returning to Philly, and the Eagles have added speed this offseason, trading for Marquise Goodwin and drafting Jalen Reagor in the first round, and that could make Jackson expendable if he's unable to stay healthy.

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.
