Summary

DeSean Jackson joins a Tampa Bay offense where targets have been dominated by Mike Evans for two straight seasons. The secondary receiver impact has been minimal despite Jameis Winston's panache for throwing bold deep balls even into contested coverage. Jackson, despite turning 31 years old during the 2017 NFL season, offers Winston the most dangerous speed threat of his career to-date. Jackson has averaged more than 17 yards-per-catch for each of the last three seasons, including a 9.9% touchdown rate while in Washington. The target pie is crowded in Tampa Bay with Mike Evans, Cameron Brate, and Adam Humphries incumbents of 80+ targets last year and drafting O.J. Howard in Round 1 of the 2017 NFL Draft along with Jackson's signing. Jackson's pure speed and deep separation offers safety-drawing appeal to open up the entire offense. (May 20)

Buccaneers | Mike Evans pumped for DeSean Jackson (Thu May 18, 09:19 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said it will be 'awesome' to play with WR DeSean Jackson, and he believes they 'could be one of the best tandems in the league.'

Our View: Evans is a tremendous receiver and Jackson - even if the current version is a shadow of the younger one - should draw sufficient attention to give Evans more room to produce yards and touchdowns. Add in another year of experience for Jameis Winston and Evans' value continues to trend upward.
