Somewhat surprisingly, DeSean Jackson currently sits at fifth in the NFL in receiving yardage with a healthy 1,275 yards. While the total is nice, Jackson’s production has come in spurts, which is perfectly normal for a downfield threat. Week 15 was a big week for Jackson, as he was targeted a season-high 16 times on his way to ten catches for 195 yards and a score. Quarterback Nick Foles has been playing very well since being installed as the full-time starter in Philadelphia, so Jackson will remain a decent fantasy option, but his streak of five straight weeks with six or less targets prior to Week 15 make him a more risky option that the other players on our list this week. The Chicago Bears are up next for Jackson and the Eagles.
