Jackson secured two of three targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson's four-yard scoring reception in the second quarter capped off a four-play, 37-yard drive following a Jarvis Landry fumble that was recovered by Ryan Smith. The touchdown salvaged the day for Jackson's fantasy owners, as he otherwise turned in another underwhelming outing. The 30-year-old wideout has tallied three receptions or less in four of his last six games, posting under 40 receiving yards in each of those contests. Jackson will look to play a larger role against the Falcons in Week 12.

Jackson brought in six of 10 targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Jackson saw a slight increase in attention with Mike Evans (suspension) out of uniform. The veteran speedster accounted for nearly half of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's yardage total and managed season-best reception and target totals in the process. Jackson is still looking to establish some downfield success, however, as his longest reception of the season is a relatively modest 41 yards. He'll look to build on Sunday's effort against the Dolphins in Week 11.

Jackson, who's seen a significant drop in his trademark deep-ball success in his first Buccaneers season, is likely to see an increased target share in Week 10 with Mike Evans (suspension) out.

EDGE Analysis

As per Jenna Laine of ESPN.com, Jackson had 56 catches on throws of at least 30 yards between his rookie 2008 campaign and 2016, 15 more than any other player over that span. Moreover, his 25 touchdown receptions on those completions were tops in the NFL during that stretch. However, Jackson has come up empty on the nine such occasions he's been targeted under those circumstances in Tampa, while Jameis Winston (shoulder) has just a 27.8 completion percentage on passes of 20 or more air yards to Jackson, as per Laine. The 10-year veteran should nevertheless see more opportunities than usual against the Jets this coming Sunday with Evans out, and even the fact that he'll be working with Ryan Fitzpatrick could tilt in his favor. One of Jackson's two receiving touchdowns on the season came off the arm of Fitzpatrick, who hooked up with him for a four-yard score against the Cardinals in a Week 6 loss.

Jackson secured two of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson's frustrating afternoon was a microcosm of both his season and that of the team as a whole. The speedster led the team in targets and was tied for most receptions, but given how low the bar for either was Sunday, neither mark could be considered much of an accomplishment. Jackson had seen between six and nine targets in every game before Week 9, although he'd only been able to parlay them into 25 receptions overall. If Jameis Winston (shoulder) misses an extended period of time, Jackson's efficiency and fantasy prospects could sink even further with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback.

Jackson secured just three of eight targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

It was another frustrating day for Jackson, one that's been far too common in the first half of his initial Buccaneers campaign. The veteran speedster has posted under 40 receiving yards in three of his last five games, and a general inefficiency with his targets is at the center of his lackluster production. Jackson has seen a robust 37 targets (7.4 per game) over that span, yet has brought in only 18 of them (48.6 percent catch rate). He uncharacteristically managed just one catch over 40 yards over his first seven contests as well, adding to the disappointment. He'll look to break out in the offense-friendly conditions of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during a Week 9 battle against the Saints.

Jackson brought in five of eight targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson garnered his fair share of production on a day in which Jameis Winston racked up 384 passing yards. The veteran speedster has just one 100-yard receiving effort and two touchdowns on 44 total targets this season, but he did equal a season high in receptions with Sunday's haul. Jackson's presence also serves to keep defenses honest, so his value isn't solely tied to his numbers by any stretch. He'll look to continue producing versus the Panthers in a Week 8 divisional showdown.

Jackson brought in three of six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson got the Bucs' improbable comeback started with an early third-quarter four-yard scoring grab, his second touchdown reception of the campaign. The 11-year veteran couldn't much else on the afternoon despite the team's pass-heavy approach, but he'll look to rebound against the Bills in Week 7.

Jackson wasn't listed on the Buccaneers' injury report Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the aftermath of his most productive appearance as a Buccaneer last Thursday -- five catches (on nine targets) for 106 yards -- Jackson was seen icing his right wrist or forearm. With a week between injury reports, he was able to avoid receiving a designation altogether on the initial Week 6 release. His focus will instead be on Sunday's road matchup with the Cardinals, who have surrendered 14.4 YPC and seven touchdowns to wideouts in 2017.

Jackson was spotted with an ice pack on his right wrist/forearm area upon exiting Raymond James Stadium on Thursday following the Buccaneers' loss to the Patriots, Roy Cummings of WFLA NewsChannel 8 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson played a full slate of snaps in the losing effort, finishing with a season-high five catches for 106 yards. It's possible that Jackson may have just been a little banged up following the contest, but he'll have nearly a week to heal before the team resumes practicing next Wednesday.

Jackson brought in five of nine targets for 106 yards in Thursday's 19-14 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

After openly expressing his frustration with multiple missed connections between him and QB Jameis Winston in a Week 4 win over the Giants, Jackson was able to gain some redemption in Thursday's loss. The veteran speedster's 41-yard catch-and-run early in the fourth quarter exemplified what the Bucs brought him aboard in the offseason. Jackson made a short third-down grab over the middle and then turned on the jets, outrunning multiple defenders down the field until he was brought down by Devin McCourty just inside New England territory. Jackson's next reception, his final one of the night, was a clutch 29-yard catch on 3rd-and-15 from the Patriots 47-yard line with 2:39 remaining, extending a drive that would culminate in a Cameron Brate touchdown. The 30-year-old has now alternated two quiet performances with a pair of contests in which he's posted a combined nine receptions for 190 yards and a touchdown. He'll look to put together a second straight strong performance in a tough Week 6 road matchup against the Cardinals.
