'Nobody can stop Eagles WR DeSean Jackson'

If you watched the Eagles' debut preseason game on Friday night, you probably saw wide receiver DeSean Jackson @DeseanJackson10 catch a deep ball from Michael Vick for a touchdown. Those are the kinds of plays we saw him make routinely back in 2009 and 2010. But after a couple of down seasons, Jackson looks like he's back to his old self.
According to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank, Jackson has changed for the better this season. He has a new attitude, a maturity about him, and he's improved his work ethic. Frank says Jackson worked his harder than ever to perfect his game this offseason, and now "he's catching everything,"
And it continues ...
Frank says Jackson has "been the best player in camp. Nobody can stop him." He says Jackson's speed makes him a perfect fit for this offense, and that Jackson is learning to run more intermediate routes, not just straight down the field.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's one of the most complimentary columns I have seen anyone write about any player this year. It makes Jackson sound like a ridiculous bargain as a seventh-round WR3, which he may be. But I'm still wary of the all-or-nothing Jackson we saw over the past two seasons. What I saw Friday was nice; I need to see more of it for me to feel comfortable drafting Jackson.
