DeSean Jackson status update

DJax is questionable to return midway through the third quarter, per the Eagles.

DeSean Jackson in-game update

It would appear Jackson is dealing with an injury. He has been on and off the field, and went to the locker room early in the second quarter, according to Andrew Siciliano. His status is unknown.

DeSean Jackson game status update

The Eagles released their inactives and Jackson is ACTIVE as expected.

It’s been a loooooong time since we’ve seen DeSean Jackson on the field, Week 2 as a matter of fact, but he is all set to return this week as the Philadelphia Eagles host the Chicago Bears.

Jackson has been dealing with an abdominal injury that’s kept him on the shelf most of the season. But now he is all set to play again, and the Eagles offense could be a lot better with their speedster back in the lineup.

We saw just what Jackson is capable of in Week 1. After five seasons away, his first game back in an Eagles uniform saw him catch eight of nine passes throw his way for a total of 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy football analysis, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

Jackson is still officially questionable, so pay attention just in case there happens to be a late breaking complication with his status.

A player’s first game back after a long injury-related absence is always tough to predict. However, Jackson’s place in the Eagles offense makes it impossible to fade him. He may not produce at his full potential this week, but he can still put up some numbers. Plus, at $5,200 in DK leagues this week, he’s a solid bargain.
