News: 4 days agoJackson caught both his targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 34-14 win over Chicago. He played 14 of 52 offensive snaps.
Spin: The veteran speedster ranked fourth in offensive snaps among Los Angeles receivers with Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson all seeing more playing time. In particular, Jefferson's larger role and 67-yard receiving touchdown don't project favorably for Jackson's fantasy value moving forward. As a result -- and even bearing in mind Jackson's big-play potential -- it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach in most fantasy settings. Additionally, it's likely he remains a high-risk, high-reward asset week in and week out.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jackson signed with the Rams after appearing in a grand total of eight games during the past two seasons in Philadelphia. In fact, Jackson last appeared in a full 16-game regular season in 2013 and is averaging 10.4 games per season since that point. Jackson occasionally looks like his old self (he had an 8-154-2 showing in 2019 Week 1 and caught an 81-yard TD in Week 16 last season), but the lack of availability has become a major issue. In Los Angeles, he's likely to work as a situational deep threat while rotating with Van Jefferson and rookie Tutu Atwell behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Jackson's propensity for big plays makes him a tempting fantasy best-ball flier, but the 34-year-old's durability concerns are as high as anyone in the NFL.
