Summary

After peaking in 2012, Vincent Jackson has logged consecutive declining seasons. Mike Evans also emerged as a 2014 rookie to seize the lead receiver job in Tampa Bay. Jackson still surpassed 1,000 yards for the fourth straight season with Josh McCown struggling mightily under center. Jackson's two touchdowns in 2014 marked his lowest total since his sparse opportunities of 2005. With a 12% career touchdown rate prior to 2014, expect a rebound for the big-play Jackson in the end zone. Jameis Winston marks a substantial upgrade at quarterback for Jackson, whose large catching radius blends well with Winston's bold decision-making down the field. While no longer the best receiver on his own team, Vincent Jackson has a high weekly ceiling when volume intersects with big play conversions. (May 12)

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson may see time in slot (Sun Jun 21, 02:35 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson could line up in the slot at times this season.

Our View: We're all for Jackson being used in creative and different ways this season. Out of the slot, Jackson can be put in motion to get a clean release off the line of scrimmage. He should quickly become a favorite target for rookie QB Jameis Winston. His current ADP is WR29 (6.06) in 12-team PPR leagues. That's pretty good value for a player who ranked as the 14th-best fantasy WR the last time he was catching passes from a rookie (2013, Mike Glennon).
