WR DeSean Jackson
It’s not often that a former Pro Bowl wideout is the biggest question mark of a receiving corps heading into the season.
DeSean Jackson signed a big money contract before the 2017 season but didn’t live up to his paycheck. In 2018, Jackson had to prove that he still has the skills to be a premier deep ball threat.
Through five weeks, Jackson looks like he is back in Philadelphia. He averaged 24.9 YPC and already matched his touchdown total from last season with three.
Jackson is a surprise not because of his age or lack of talent; everyone knew he could still produce. The question revolved around other areas of the offense. Could Fitzpatrick get the ball to him downfield and would the offensive line give ‘Fitz’ enough time in the pocket?
Thankfully, the answers to those questions have been a resounding yes.
Jameis Winston returns to the starting role next week, and he will need Jackson at his best for the Buccaneers to continue their impressive offensive output.
