DeSean Jackson disappoints fantasy owners with quiet performance

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos shut down DeSean Jackson in a blowout win. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson held to just two catches for 34 yards in a 52-20 loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday. The Broncos defense blanketed him for most of the day, and with the Eagles running attack slowed down he struggled to get separation.

Jackson had a scary moment in the first half when he went down with an apparent leg injury, but he came back in after missing just a few plays and finished the game.

Fantasy impact: Better fantasy days are ahead for Jackson. The Eagles' defense is such a disaster that Chip Kelly's offense will have no choice but to play catch-up. Jackson has just 96 receiving yards in the past two weeks after a blazing start to the season. Through four games, he has 21 catches for 393 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson is a good bet to bounce back against a Giants team in complete freefall.
