Week 14: vs New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. This is the first meeting between these NFC South rivals during 2016 - Tampa is currently tied with Atlanta for the lead in the NFC South with a 7-5 record, while New Orleans is third in the division at 5-7. This game has playoff implications for both squads. Jameis Winston threw 20/30 for 280 yards passing, one TD and one interception at San Diego last week, taking just one sack for -12 yards. He didn't throw a TD to Mike Evans, though, making it three-of-four games with no TDs flowing to Evans (six targets for 3/38/0 receiving, Evans' lowest total of the year). Cameron Brate (nine for 6/86/1) hauled in the TD from Winston while Freddie Martino (four for 4/56/0) was second on the team in receiving. The Saints' pass defense has averaged 276.8 net yards allowed per game this year (31st in the NFL) with 19 passing scores given up vs. seven interceptions (tied for 21st in the NFL) and 24 sacks (21st) generated. From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), New Orleans has averaged 20.7 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (14th-most in the NFL); and 27.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-most); with 5.7 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (11th-least). Last week, Matthew Stafford blew up this secondary for 30/42 yielding 337 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -4 yards. This is a great matchup for Winston and company, at home and facing a crucial divisional game.

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.
