2019 Fantasy Outlook
In his two years with the Bears, Jackson has proved to be a great playmaker, picking off eight passes (three for touchdowns), forcing three fumbles and recording a sack. He was an IDP force last year and ended it on fire, with four interceptions over his last five games. Although those numbers will be tough to sustain, given he plays behind one of the better front sevens in the league, he should be considered as a high-upside option at safety. Read Past Outlooks

Lands huge extension

January 3, 2020
Jackson signed a four-year, $58.4 million contract extension with the Bears on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Jackson's contract includes $22 million fully guaranteed and $33 million in total guarantees, and his $14.6 million average annual salary is the highest among players at his position. He's been one of the top safeties in the league since the Bears selected him in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, so it makes sense for the team to lock him up for the foreseeable future. Jackson made his second straight Pro Bowl in 2019, and he received first-team All-Pro honors in 2018.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
During his rookie season, Jackson failed to reach five tackles in eight of his first 11 games, but he certainly finished the year on a high note. Over the last five contests, he averaged seven tackles per game while adding a forced fumble and an interception. He should be poised to pick up where he left off as he enters his second season and showed the type of upside that could result in him becoming an IDP star. Although he was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft, a leg injury that cost Jackson the final seven games in his final year at Alabama likely caused him to fall, as many had considered him to be a player worthy of a second-round pick. In fantasy drafts, his rookie numbers may suppress his perceived value, which could make him a great late-round selection.
