DeSean Jackson Believes He's Uncoverable Monday, August 3, 2015 | Time: 4:27 PT |  Reported by ESPN.com

The Facts: When he was asked Monday how one teammate, CB Chris Culliver, challenged him in practice, Jackson made one point clear. "I don't think no one can guard me," Jackson said. "It's how I feel about myself. I don't feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman -- whoever you want to get."
Diehards Line: As ESPN.com's John Keim reminded readers, defenses certainly had a tough time stopping Jackson from going deep last season. He led the NFL with 13 catches for 40 yards or more -- five more than any other wideout. He also averaged an NFL-best 20.88 yards per catch -- nearly three yards more than the next receiver, Arizona's Michael Floyd. There's more: Since entering the NFL as a second-round pick in 2008 with Philadelphia, Jackson has averaged an NFL-best 17.68 yards per catch. Also during this time, Jackson has 48 catches for 40 yards or more -- 11 more than anyone else. Last season, the Redskins wanted their quarterbacks to take even more deep shots with Jackson than they did. They were told to throw to him even if he was covered, knowing one of Jackson's strengths was separating from defensive backs downfield. It's a learning process, one that's on-going with his QBs, including starter Robert Griffin III, who connected with him on five plays for at least 40 yards. This season, the Redskins want to focus heavily on the run and use more play-action. It could make Jackson even tougher to guard.

The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... The No. 7 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft has yet to take the practice field for the Bears, and at the moment, HC John Fox doesn't know when White (shin) will be able to.
Diehards Line: Fox says White is "making headway" but still vague about any timetable. The coach also confirmed that White has been on the shelf for six weeks. Still, as NFL.com's Conor Orr reminded readers, Giants rookie Odell Beckham (hamstring) demonstrated last year it's still possible to have an immediate impact without training camp, and White certainly possesses a high-end skillset. We'll continue to watch for more.

2nd Year Fantasy Football Players to Watch
By Chad Stapley

 2nd Year Players Who Are Ready to Break Out

 

Troy Niklas – TE – Arizona Cardinals

Niklas didn’t do anything in his rookie season. He caught a whopping three passes in his first season. Much of that can be due to the fact that he had four different QBs throwing him the ball and he never really got into a groove. Look for Niklas to make huge strides with some consistency at the QB position with Carson Palmer coming back from injury. Niklas is 6’6 and weighs 270 lbs. so he can be a nice red-zone target for Palmer.

 

Devonta Freeman – RB – Atlanta Falcons

Freeman is going into the Pre-Season as the starting RB for the Falcons. He had flashes of brilliance last year when he played mop up duty as the 3rd RB on the roster. Freeman has all the opportunities to excel in year two especially with how teams will have to play extra DB’s in the pass heavy Falcons offense.
