Now that DeSean Jackson is back with the Philadelphia Eagles (that still feels weird to type!), BetOnline.AG put out some statistical prop bets for him during the 2019 NFL season. Here’s a look:

DESEAN JACKSON

Over/Under 900.5 receiving yards

Over/Under 4.5 receiving touchdowns

For reference, here’s a snapshot of Jackson’s career from Pro Football Reference:

Jackson hasn’t gone over 900 receiving yards since 2016, when he was last in a contract year. He hasn’t had at least five receiving touchdowns since 2014. So, if you’re taking the over on those prop bets, you’re feeling like Jackson is going to have a significant resurgence.

It’s certainly possible Jackson’s production could pop in Philly. If Carson Wentz resembles anything like his 2017 near-MVP form this season, he’ll be the best quarterback Jackson has arguably ever played with. Doug Pederson also figures to be one the best coaches Jackson has played under. Wentz and Pederson are much more inspiring than the duo of Jameis Winston and Dirk Koetter.

On the flip side, Jackson turns 33 this season. He’s also dealt with a number of injury issues. None of them have ever been super serious but he’s only played 16 games twice out of his 11 years in the league. He’s missed about two games per season on average.

ESPN fantasy football analyst Mike Clay projects 95 targets, 51 receptions, 812 yards (15.9 yards per reception), and five touchdowns in 2019. If you go by that, Jackson will hit the under in yards but just manage to make the over in touchdowns.

What say you?
