Any concerns of DeSean Jackson's fantasy value being diminished by the presence of Nick Foles were likely eliminated on Sunday. Jackson caught five passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 49-20 win over the Oakland Raiders. Foles put together a historic performance, throwing for 406 yards and seven touchdowns. Three touchdowns were hauled in by Jackson's fellow receiver Riley Cooper. Jackson was utilized on deep passes as he successfully burned the Raiders secondary throughout the afternoon.
Fantasy impact: There were concerns heading into Week 9 that Jackson would either lose targets from Foles or simply suffer from poor quarterback play. Instead, Foles targeted Jackson six times, which tied Cooper and tight end Zach Ertz for the team lead. Jackson's touchdown was a 46-yard pass from Foles in the third quarter, followed by another big gain of 59 yards later in the quarter. Cooper's career performance should only help Jackson owners as defenses will need to highlight Cooper for the time being. Of course Jackson remains a strong WR1 moving forward.
