    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Position
    WR
     
    Jersey
    83
    Name  Vincent Jackson
    Born  1/14/1983
    Height  6-5
    Weight  230
    College  Northern Colorado
    12/28/2014 1:48:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson suffered a groin injury and is doubtful to return.
    Insight: He did catch one pass for 11 yards, so cracked the 1,000-yard mark for the season, his third straight time in Tampa Bay and sixth time in his career.
     
    12/21/2014 5:56:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson recorded a team-high 60 receiving yards on Sunday.
    Insight: He did so on three catches, and now is just nine yards shy of another 1,000-yard season.
     
    12/14/2014 6:16:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had six catches for 70 yards on Sunday.
    Insight: Jackson continues to stick around and annoy fantasy owners who believed Mike Evans was ready to take over as the No. 1 option in the Buccaneers passing attack. Jackson had 10 targets versus Evans' eight.
     
    12/7/2014 7:04:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a big day on Sunday.
    Insight: Jackson had 10 catches for 159 yards, and has now gone over 100 yards in two of the past three games. He is a borderline WR2.
     
    11/30/2014 5:06:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught just two balls for 24 yards against the Bengals in Week 13.
    Insight: Late weekend's first 100-yard game elation disappeared quickly as he was not part of the offense.
     
    11/23/2014 7:20:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a team-high 117 receiving yards on Sunday.
    Insight: It was his first 100-yard game since Week 5, and he did so on five catches. Jackson is a WR3.
     
    11/16/2014 7:33:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had three catches for 43 yards versus Washington on Sunday.
    Insight: With Mike Evans breaking out, Jackson isn't left with much with Josh McCown under center. Jackson will remain the second-best receiving option for McCown going forward as we expect Evans to continue to dominant.
     
    11/9/2014 7:25:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a decent game in Week 10.
    Insight: He had eight catches for 75 yards, on 13 targets, but did not find the end zone. Jackson is a borderline WR2, with teammate Mike Evans stealing some of his potential production.
     
    11/9/2014 12:13:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active for the Week 10 matchup with Atlanta.
    Insight: Jackson will be ready to roll on Sunday, but owners should consider him no more than a WR3.
     
    11/5/2014 2:45:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
    Insight: Jackson has been taking Wednesdays off, over the past few weeks. He will be ready to roll on Sunday, and owners should consider him no more than a WR3.
     
    11/2/2014 5:06:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught just half his targets, but still managed 86 receiving yards.
    Insight: Mike Glennon threw to Jackson and rookie Mike Evans about equally in Week 9, but Evans caught more of his targets. Jackson is still a quality WR2 going forward.
     
    10/26/2014 6:28:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a day to forget on Sunday.
    Insight: He had only one catch for 13 yards, as his inconsistent play continues. Playing on a team like Tampa Bay only hurts Jackson's value, as owners will hope he is dealt by Tuesday's trade deadline.
     
    10/26/2014 10:51:00 AM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has been the subject of trade talks, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
    Insight: Rapoport reports that the Eagles, Patriots, and Seahawks are among the teams that have called Tampa Bay regarding Jackson. If he is traded to any of these three teams, his fantasy value will skyrocket.
     
    10/22/2014 2:28:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
    Insight: Tampa Bay is seemingly playing it safe with Jackson, as he should be back at practice tomorrow. He is expected to be a full-go for Week 8 against Minnesota, and should be cosidered a WR2 for the matchup.
     
    10/13/2014 5:01:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a decent game Sunday against Baltimore.
    Insight: He was iffy coming in with sore ribs, but managed four catches for 66 yards, in a blowout loss. Jackson did have a team-high 13 targets, and should be considered a low-end WR2 moving forward.
     
    10/12/2014 12:26:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active against Baltimore.
    Insight: He missed a couple days of practiced, but returned on Friday. Jackson will be a WR2 today.
     
    10/10/2014 7:40:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson finally practiced on Friday but in limited fashion and is questionable for Week 6.
    Insight: Jackson is still expected to start against the Ravens this Sunday. Fellow receiver Mike Evans is also hoping to be on the field after missing last week.
     
    10/9/2014 3:48:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday with a rib issue.
    Insight: Its still not thought to be a threat to his playing Sunday, but check for updates on Friday's practice.
     
    10/8/2014 2:28:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday for undisclosed reasons.
    Insight: This is a new development, so it could mean nothing, as it is early in the practice week. However, make sure you check for updates on Jackson, as the week progresses.
     
    10/5/2014 6:34:00 PM
    Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught eight passes for 144 yards against the Saints on Sunday.
    Insight: The Saints continue to have problems with No. 1 wide outs from the opposition. Jackson seems to have really benefitted from the quarterback switch to Mike Glennon. Since the change due to Josh McCown's injury, Jackson has a touchdown catch in each of the last two games and now a 100-yard day.
