Eagles WR DeSean Jackson: 'The sky's the limit for myself'

Most everyone is excited or at least interested to see how Chip Kelly's offensive philosophy translates to the NFL. That excitement, of course, carries over to his players, and perhaps no one is more excited than wide receiver DeSean Jackson @DeseanJackson10.
"I feel the sky's the limit for myself," Jackson said Wednesday, via the Philadelphia Daily News. "I think this year, with Chip coming in with the style of play of his offense, it's really going to help me out a lot more as well. I'm going to be able to get certain looks, get the ball in my hand, do things I wasn't doing the past five years. So that's going to be an exciting time for myself. I'm going to have to be fully prepared, fully in shape, fully healthy.
"That offensive style was almost cheating. [Kelly's] cheating, getting all those touchdowns, scoring all those points, doing all [this] crazy stuff, so I'm just excited to hopefully fit into that role."

Fantasy Analysis:

Yes. Excited.
Jackson is an obvious fit for what Kelly is going to do as the Eagles' head coach. He has super speed and is a multi-dimensional threat on the field. He missed five games last season due to fractured ribs, but he has fully recovered. Jackson's week-to-week output has always been inconsistent because of his all-or-nothing style of play, and his stats have been dropping for the last three years after a 2009 season that made him one of the top WRs in fantasy football. His effort has been called into question (for good reason), but Jackson should be reinvigorated in Kelly's scheme. DeSean should be drafted as a WR3 because of what he's done recently, but if you're buying into what he could do this year, he has high-WR2 upside.
