Coach Greg Schiano said he wants Vincent Jackson to get more catches.
"We need to make sure he gets his touches because he's a dynamic player," Schiano said. "With the loss of some (of our) weapons offensively, defenses are really going to key on him now. That's a fact of life. But get over it and find a way to get him the ball. That's what we have to do." Jackson has seen just 12 targets the past two weeks. He has a matchup with a soft Falcons defense up next. Jackson torched Atlanta for 138 yards and two touchdowns on ten catches in Week 7. He's Rotoworld's No. 15 receiver for Week 11.

A couple plays later, Jackson was the intended receiver on Glennon's interception. Jackson has a juicy matchup with the Falcons next week. He beat them for 138 yards and two touchdowns on ten catches in Tampa's Week 7 loss.
