DeSean Jackson provides modest production for fantasy owners

Al Bello

The Eagles wide receiver had a solid out in poor weather conditions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson had a decent game against the Detroit Lions, finishing with four catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. Fellow starting receiver Riley Cooper also chipped in three receptions for 74 yards. While neither of the lines are quite difference making, they were relatively impressive as the snow was a major factor that caused both quarterbacks Nick Foles and Matthew Stafford to struggle. Both Philadelphia receivers outproduced fantasy football's best receiver Calvin Johnson in the game who caught three passes for 49 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson is enjoying a nice bounce-back season and now has 65 receptions for 1,080 yards and eight touchdowns. His electrifying big-play ability has been on display all year as he's averaging an elite 16.6 yards per catch. Jackson missed five games last year and finished with a 45/700/2 line so owners got a good bargain drafting him later in later rounds. He'll be a solid WR1 play next week against the Vikings terrible secondary.

Riley Cooper has filled in admirably for Jeremy Maclin. He now has 37 catches for 714 yards, seven touchdowns and has topped the 100-yard receiving mark three times. Averaging just under three catches per game, he's a classic boom-or-bust WR3 play.
