DeSean Jackson leads Eagles in receiving, fantasy value boosts

DeSean Jackson was all over the field for the Eagles in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

DeSean Jackson caught six passes for 99 yards and one touchdown in Week 4 against the Giants. The wideout led the team with nine targets on the night, and his first touchdown of the season turned out to be the only six-point score for the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Jeremy Maclin was out on the field tonight, but you could barely tell by looking at the stat sheet. Jackson emerged as the top target for Michael Vick, and he proved he could handle the job. While Jackson only has one touchdown in four games now, he has looked better than his 2011 form. If the Eagles can limit turnovers and protect Vick better in the pocket, Jackson should continue to have solid fantasy value each week.
