DeSean Jackson injury update: WR questionable for fantasy owners

Washington could be without their top receiver in Week 7 if DeSean Jackson can’t go.

Washington is listing DeSean Jackson as questionable to face the Detroit Lions in Week 7. Jackson is dealing with a lingering shoulder injury that has yet to cost him any games this season.

However, Jackson was held out of practice twice this week before getting a session in on Friday. With news that Josh Doctson is being placed on I.R., Jackson will remain the main boundary receiver for the foreseeable future, especially with Jordan Reed likely out with a concussion.

In six games this season, Jackson has caught 22 passes for 333 yards and one score. While not ideal numbers, Jackson could be in for a big game against a vulnerable Detroit secondary.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Jackson as the 26th-best wide receiver for Week 7. He faces a Lions defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to receivers this season.

As long as Jackson is active, keep him in your starting lineup.
