Jackson caught seven passes for 132 yards and a touchdown against the Giants on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

DeSean Jackson managed to put together a monster game for fantasy owners in Week 5. Even though Michael Vick left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury before the second half of the game, Jackson continued to produce. Jackson caught seven passes for 132 yards and a touchdown, leading all Eagles receivers. The Giants simply couldn't find a way to stop Jackson, who now has 525 yards and three touchdowns through five games. Philadelphia's next best producer in the receiving game was tight end Brent Celek with three catches for 47 yards and touchdown.

Fantasy impact: Jackson has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners. He's currently a top-10 fantasy wide receiver that has been rejuvenated under Chip Kelly's watch. He saw 12 targets on Sunday. Even if Vick misses time with a hamstring injury, Jackson will likely continue to be the most targeted player on the Eagles offense. He'll have a tough match up against Darrelle Revis when the Eagles face the Buccaneers in Week 6, but Jackson continues to be a solid WR1 in most formats.
