Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
DJax never really looked fully like himself in 2015. He was dealing with a lingering injury, his quarterback was going through growing pains, and his most talented option didn't even start the year off with the offense, being Jordan Reed. With Cousins established, Reed healthy and ready to go, and DJax playing off the attention that Reed receives, Jackson could be in for a monster year on the outside. He draws an ideal match up right off the bat. If Jackson can't post stats similar to a WR1 then we'll be hard pressed to trust him the next time out.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 66 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Despite all the media speculation this offseason that the Redskins would release Jackson, he remains atop the Washington WR depth chart. When healthy, Jackson is a dynamic playmaker capable of stretching defenses. Both Jackson and fellow wide receiver Pierre Garcon will be 30 years old this year and the Redskins knew that they had to get younger, so they drafted Josh Doctson, arguably the best wide receiver in this class, at No. 22 overall. If Jackson can stay healthy he has tantalizing upside, but given that he's only played a full 16 games in a season only twice in his 8-year career, we're not holding out hope that it will happen again 2016 as he'll be turning 30 years old in December. The Redskins know what they have in Jackson and even if Doctson earns more playing time, Jackson should be safe in regards to playing time as long as he remains healthy.

Receiving: 65 Receptions, 1000 Yards, 6 TD.
