DeSean Jackson expected to be Eagles' top receiver

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is "expected to be the Eagles' top receiving threat" this season, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

What It Means:

The Eagles spent a first-round pick on Jalen Reagor and traded for Marquise Goodwin, but Jackson is still capable of being the top option in the passing game -- as long as he can stay healthy. The veteran receiver popped off for 154 yards and 2 touchdowns on 8 catches (9 targets) in Week 1 last season, but he totaled just 14 snaps in two appearances the rest of the way. Jackson said in March that he is back to full health after undergoing core muscle surgery. He will turn 34 in December.

Jackson is the second-highest ranked Eagles receiver (WR57) in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings, just behind Reagor (WR52) and barely ahead of Alshon Jeffery (WR59). Our models believe Jackson will finish third on the team in targets (75.3), receptions (43.3), and touchdowns (4.0). He's projected to have the second-most yards (604.6) on the squad behind Reagor.
