DeSean Jackson caught four of his eight targets for 82 yards in Monday night's preseason game against the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

DeSean Jackson caught four of his eight targets for 82 yards in Monday night's preseason game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. Jackson performed well despite the absence of Michael Vick, who left on the team's second possession with a rib injury. Before the game, news broke that Jackson admitted to not giving 100 percent at times last season out of fear of getting injured in his contract year. Jackson insists he is now giving a full effort. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles seemed to be in sync with Jackson on Monday.

Analysis: DeSean Jackson is inconsistent and a bit of an injury concern but, when healthy and at his best, is a game-changer. It's tough to say which DeSean Jackson will show up in 2012, but if Monday was any indication Jackson could provide a nice return for fantasy owners based on his current average draft position.
