After two weeks of the 2013 fantasy football season, everyone can see the instant value that Chip Kelly has brought the Philadelphia Eagles. RB LeSean McCoy is back on track and running all over the place and even QB Michael Vick seems to have visited the fountain of youth this off-season.
On top of McCoy and Vick having strong starts to the season, WR DeSean Jackson is also having a resurgent season. Jackson has hauled in 297 yards through the first two games of the season and is currently leading the entire NFL in receiving yards. He also has two touchdown grabs and has amassed 15 receptions on 24 targets.
It is an all-around bounce back season for the wideout that hauled in just 700 yards and two touchdowns all of last season. In 2012, though, Jackson was plagued all season with a nagging rib injury. It kept him from practicing and eventually landed him on IR. D-Jax looks like he is in his prime again this year.
Jackson has fit in perfectly in the team’s new high-octane offense and the wideout is averaging an amazing 18.6 yards per reception. He should have no problems going over 1,200 yards this season and 10+ touchdowns seems almost inevitable for the two-time Pro Bowler.
Jackson has proven that he can be a reliable WR1 again this fantasy season, but most owners with him on their roster are lucky enough to be able to start him as a second or even third wideout.
