Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs CAR (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)

Vjax got started early with a reception on a post route during the Bucs' first offensive drive, and had another long reception on the next drive negated by a holding penalty on the offensive line. Jackson disappeared during the middle of the game, but showed back up on the Bucs' final game-winning drive with a couple of clutch receptions to extend the drive. He finished the day with 3 receptions for 36 yards on his 5 targets.

2016 Week 4 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)

Jackson's first reception converted 3rd and 7 on a deep route down the middle of the field. Jackson was targeted deep down the left sideline in the 2nd quarter but was badly overthrown by Winston. Vjax converted 3rd and 9 in the 2nd quarter against tight coverage with a nifty comeback route. The veteran receiver finished the day with 3 catches on 5 targets for 38 yards.

2016 Week 3 vs LA (6 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)

Jackson's first target of the day was a laser from Winston that he reeled in on a deep curl route, just barely coming up short on 3rd and 22. Vjax drew a pass interference call late in the 4th as the Bucs attempted to mount a comeback, and had a short reception on a curl route on the next play. Jackson was targeted on a 2 point conversion after Cameron Brate's 2nd touchdown catch, but the ball was overthrown by Winston. Jackson picked up a 1st down on 3rd and long late in the 4th, but the catch was negated by a holding penalty on the offensive line. Vjax's final catch came as the Bucs returned from a lengthy rain delay and attempted a last minute comeback. Jackson reeled in a deep out route for a nice gain, but unfortunately let a good pass clang off his hands at the 9 yard line a few plays later in the drive.

2016 Week 2 vs ARI (9 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)

Jackson's first target of the day was sailed high by Winston on Tampa Bay's second offensive drive. Vjax had broken open for what would have been a big gain. Winston missed Jackson again later in the same drive, throwing the ball behind him on a deep curl route and failing to convert 3rd and long. Vjax was Winston's intended target on the QB's second interception of the day. Jackson broke a deep out route with the defender right in his pocket, and Winston threw the ball a bit high, right into the defender's arms. Jackson and Winston really looked to be on different pages at this point in the game. Vjax finally got a nice reception on a deep slant late in the 3rd quarter. Jackson had what looked to be a big gain late in the 3rd quarter on a deep post route, but he could not complete the catch as he was taken to the ground. To his credit, Jackson continued to play hard deep into the 4th quarter when the game was obviously out of reach. He hauled in a beautiful pass from Winston on a deep out route on Tampa Bay's final drive of the game. Jackson managed to secure 4 of 9 targets on the day for 44 yards.

2016 Week 1 vs ATL (7 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Jackson and Winston struggled to get on the same page, not showing the usual chemistry between the QB and veteran receiver. Winston, appearing a bit rattled by all the crowd noise in the first quarter, threw an interception while looking for VJax. Jackson took off straight down the field while lined up wide right, and broke his route to the right about 10 yards downfield. Winston, however, threw the ball as if Jackson were going to break inside, making the interception easy for CB Desmond Trufant. Jackson made a nice diving effort on a low pass from Winston in the waning 2 minutes of the 2nd quarter, but couldn't quite scoop up the bad pass. He was targeted again by Winston on the next play, but Winston took a hit as he was throwing the ball and again underthrew the veteran receiver. Undeterred, Jackson finally reeled in his third target in a row on the drive for a 3rd down conversion on a deep curl route. Jackson was then targeted a fourth consecutive time, hauling in a short out route for a gain of 5 and stopping the clock by running out of bounds. It was a forgettable day for Jackson, who caught only 2 of his 7 targets.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson injury not finite (Tue Oct 18, 08:08 PM) - Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) does not definitively have a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. The injury is still being evaluated, but Jackson could return this season if it is determined that the injury is not to the ACL. If the injury is to Jackson's medial collateral ligament, then he may be able to avoid surgery and recover sooner. Jackson will miss at least six weeks and won't be able to play in a game for eight weeks.

Our View: Either way, fantasy owners have long moved on from the veteran receiver. He may be able to return later in the year for one last hurrah with the Bucs. Without him in the lineup, we should see more work for WR Adam Humphries.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson on IR with torn ACL (Tue Oct 18, 05:18 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 18, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Our View: This might be it for Jackson. He's had a great pro career, but clearly the veteran receiver was not himself this season. No word on whether or not he'll return for the 2017 season. Jackson is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2017.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson dealing with knee woes (Tue Oct 18, 11:02 AM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 6, and he's being evaluated Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Our View: Jackson certainly isn't the same player he used to be. Fantasy owners shouldn't be carrying Jackson, and these injury woes just further cement that sentiment.
