Browns cornerback Joe Haden said he'll mirror Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson in coverage this Sunday, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.Fantasy Spin:Haden is one of the best cover corners in the league, so this is bad news for Jackson owners. Still, you don't play Jackson for his high volume of catches, you play him for his big play potential and the presence of Haden shouldn't prevent him from making a downfield catch at least once Sunday. With that said, Jeremy Maclin is the better option Sunday since he'll draw a lesser cover man.
