Jackson was targeted by quarterback Nick Foles just four times throughout the game, but he caught every pass for a total of 82 yards. It's not that Jackson was falling out of favor in the offense, but his lack of chances can be attributed to the game's situation. The Eagles found something that worked versus the Redskins, and they routinely gashed the defense with screens to LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek, and stuck with it. However, Jackson racked up plenty of yards after the catch on short crossing routes.
Fantasy Spin: With Foles at the helm, just about every Eagles skill player has a chance to get involved in the mix, as the second-year signal caller has spread the ball around with regularity. Eight different receivers got targets from Foles, and that doesn't leave much room for any of them to capitalize when only 26 passes are attempted. Jackson's modest numbers should not be a concern going forward, as fantasy owners should instead look on the bright side and observe that Jackson made the most of his chances and led the team in receiving yards.
Though he has a difficult matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals following the Week 12 bye, Jackson's big play ability entrenches him as a WR2 with plenty of upside.
