DeSean Jackson is probable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

DeSean Jackson (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday before being a full participant for Thursday and Friday. He is probable and is expected to play at Arizona.

Analysis: D-Jax is going to play, but these's aren't your older brother's Arizona Cardinals. Jackson is expected to have Patrick Peterson shadowing him for most of the game. The Cal product's speed should be negated, and while he figures to be a favorite target for Vick, the odds of him catching a deep ball aren't quite as high as they normally are. That said, there's plenty of upside and he should still be used as a WR2 in most leagues this week.
