Vincent Jackson WR TB 1 Day3 Comments

Jackson caught two passes for 15 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Thursday's 56-14 loss to the Falcons.

Jackson struggled along with the rest of his teammates, and got no help whatsoever from his quarterbacks. He got away with a clear offensive pass interference on his touchdown, which cut a 56-0 lead to 56-7 in the fourth quarter. Whether it's Josh McCown (thumb) or Mike Glennon under center in Pittsburgh next week, Jackson will likely have to overcome shaky quarterback play. At this point, fantasy owners may want to root for Glennon, as Jackson at least had a decent year while playing with the young signal-caller last season.

Jackson made four catches on seven targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to St. Louis.

Despite Jackson's modest stat line Sunday, he actually led Tampa Bay in all receiving categories. Josh McCown has been up-and-down through the first two games, but expect Jackson to put up strong numbers soon.

Jackson caught four passes on nine targets for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to Carolina.

Part of Jackson's inefficiency was the fact he was going up against one of the best defenses in the league. He should get going soon though, and he'll attempt to that as early as Week 2 against St. Louis.

Jackson caught all five of his targets for 43 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

As rookie Mike Evans continues to draw more and more attention from opposing secondaries, Jackson should see more single-coverage opportunities. Evans caught a 24-yard touchdown Saturday and has mostly impressed during the preseason. Evans' contributions, coupled with improved quarterback play from Josh McCown, could result in a monster season for Jackson.

Jackson caught a pass for 18 yards on his only target in Friday's preseason opener against the Jaguars.

The Bucs' first-team offense was disastrous, as Josh McCown had minimal time to throw behind a porous offensive line. Jackson may benefit from the improved talent around him this season, but if the line doesn't hold up, he could find himself on another poor offensive team, only this time with more competition for targets. Given the skill-position and coaching upgrades, the Bucs might improve on offense, even if the line is sub-par.

Vincent Jackson caught four passes for 35 yards in Week 17 against the Saints.

Jackson dominated targets once again Sunday, seeing a game-high 12 passes come his way. Once Mike Williams and Doug Martin went down with their respective injuries this season, Jackson became the focal point of the offense and arguably the only playmaker. He finished the season with a new career-high in catches (78), turning them into 1,224 yards and seven touchdowns. It's Jackson's fifth 1,000-yard season of his career. Jackson is due $10 million in the third year of a five-year deal next season. He'll return as a 31-year-old borderline WR1/2.

Vincent Jackson caught five balls for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 15 loss to the 49ers.

And this is why V-Jax is an every-week fantasy starter, even in difficult matchups. He is heavily targeted by Mike Glennon and scores touchdowns, simply put. V-Jax's second-quarter touchdown finally got the Bucs on the board, at that point making the score 17-7 in an otherwise anemic performance for Tampa Bay's offense. He'll continue to be a WR2 when Tampa takes on St. Louis in Week 16.
