Browns CB Joe Haden says he will 'mirror' Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson @DeseanJackson10's Week 1 just got a little more difficult. While Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 is considered to be the Eagles' most complete wide receiver, Jackson will be the one to draw cornerback Joe Haden on Sunday against the Browns. Haden told the Akron Beacon Journal on Friday that he will "mirror" Jackson in coverage.

Fantasy Analysis:

Or at least try his best to do so. It's tough to keep up with Jackson's speed, but Haden performed like one of the best cornerbacks in the league last season. Less than 50 percent of passes headed in his direction were completed and despite fighting through a knee injury for a majority of the year, opponents' top wide receiver averaged 3.4 catches and 46.2 yards in 15 games that Haden played in. Only one of those receivers -- A.J. Green -- surpassed 100 yards. Haden was the main reason why the Browns allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to wideout in 2011. So Jackson could be in for a long day this weekend. FFToolbox has him ranked as the No. 18 WR. That might be a tad too rosy.
