2020 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick in 2018, Jackson proved a tantalizing talent through his first two seasons, with his second proving more frustrating than the first. Although he dealt with a groin issue last term, Jackson finished with 40 tackles, eight passes defended, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 13 games (10 starts). However, those appearances came with a number of big plays allowed, raising concern as Carolina prepares to make Jackson its top cornerback this season following the departure of former No. 1 James Bradberry. Such a role would give Jackson more opportunities to make plays, but the mercurial track star is yet to prove he can stand up to the test. Read Past Outlooks

Turbulent third season
CBCarolina Panthers
January 12, 2021
Jackson finished the 2020 season with 34 tackles (22 solo) and three interceptions on 11 passes defended in 14 games played.
ANALYSIS
The hope was Jackson would fill James Bradberry's shoes as Carolina's top cornerback following the veteran's free-agent departure last offseason. While Jackson responded with two interceptions in his first three games, he was plagued by a toe injury afterward, hurting his performance. Overall, the usually speedy cornerback played just over half of the Panthers' defensive snaps, and although, he still posted a new career high in pass breakups, Jackson also saw his tackle total decline for a second straight year. The mercurial former second-rounder will now enter the final season of his rookie contract in hopes of a healthy and productive 2021 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
A second-round pick last year, Jackson made an immediate impact as a rookie. Not only did he start all 16 games, but he also led the Panthers in interceptions and finished fifth in tackles. Overall, he made 74 stops and four picks on nine passes defended, while also notching a sack and forced fumble. With blazing speed, Jackson added excitement to Carolina's secondary even though he endured his share of first-year inconsistencies. Looking ahead to his second season, however, more will be expected of Jackson as he grows in his starting role. If his debut campaign is any indication, that could mean more fireworks from the young cornerback.
Jackson was drafted in the second round of April's draft out of LSU and will likely begin the season as a nickel/dime cornerback for Carolina, but could easily earn a larger role among a relatively inexperienced position group.
