From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Defenses might be shifting their attention to Mike Evans after he lit them up for three straight weeks for the Bucs. Jackson is still a good player and he deserves at least a WR3/Flex start against the Bengals this week.

Week 13: vs Cincinnati Bengals

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs ATL (13 / 8 / 75 / 0 rec)

The veteran has dominated the Falcons in his four starts against Atlanta, but Mike Evans continues to earn more meaningful targets. Jackson's best catch of the day came in the first quarter up the left sideline. He had to make a leaping grab where he took a hit from the defender and landed torso-first to the boundary, straddling the sideline just enough to stay in the field of play. Although Evans made the bigger plays in this game, McCown displayed a lot of confidence in Jackson and found the big man for eight catches in this contest. Although Atlanta's secondary makes its share of mistakes and the pass rush usually isn't as effective as it was against the Buccaneers, McCown's ability to buy time and find his perimeter options with safer throws that don't tip off the opponent is a good sign for the future production of these perimeter receivers.

2014 Week 11 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Unfortunately for Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans stole the show against the Redskins on Sunday accounting for 72% of the Bucs passing offense. Jackson seemed to be doing a decent job of getting separation and running solid, crisp routes. However, McCown was locked on to Evans who seemed to be running free at all times. Jackson made all three of his receptions in man coverage. The first came on a big 3rd down conversion to put the Bucs in the red zone. Jackson was in single coverage on the outside. The corner was playing off when Jackson got into his route. He pressed inside then snapped toward the sideline running a perfectly clean out route for 16 yards. His second reception was also an out route for 9 yards in which he fought for the last three. Jackson's longest gain of the game was an 18-yard post in single coverage. He fought hard to the inside and shielded the defender with his body, essentially boxing him out from having a shot at making a play. Overall, Jackson made some crucial receptions, but didn't see the volume that Evans did. Jackson had four targets compared to Evans nine. Surprisingly, Jackson played the most snaps of any receiver or tight end

2014 Week 12 vs CHI (9 / 5 / 117 / 0 rec)

Jackson had one of his best days of the season against the Bears' secondary on Sunday. Jackson saw 9 targets, accounting for just under 20% of the total target share. He only managed to haul in 5 of the 9 targets, but he made the most of each reception. Jackson averaged 23.4 yards per reception, the longest of which coming on a busted play. In the pocket, McCown avoided three rushers on three separate sack attempts before heaving the ball down field. Jackson had originally run a comeback, but broke his route off down field. Jackson made a diving grab down to the 15-yard line, landing on a Bears safety that also dove for the ball. The play was crucial in allowing the Bucs to kick a field goal and move within one score late in the fourth. Jackson made a great catch on the Buccaneers' first drive of the game. On 3rd down from the shotgun, Jackson ran a comeback to the sticks that was thrown late. The ball arrived at the same time a cornerback hammered Jackson out of bounds from behind. Despite the late throw and hard hit, Jackson tapped both his toes before tumbling out of bounds through the Bucs' bench. Jackson also made a great grab late in the 2nd quarter. The Bears were in a Cover-2 and only rushing four. Jackson ran a flag to the sideline and leaped to make a great catch high in the air. The extraordinary part about the catch was that there were three defenders in the vicinity of the pass. A corner play zone in the flat, a safety over the top, and an outside linebacker dropping towards the sideline. Jackson went up in between all three to pull down a crucial first down conversion on third down. Despite not being the most targeted player on the field on Sunday, Jackson received important targets. When the Bucs' needed to move the chains on 3rd down, the ball always seemed to go to Jackson. Overall, Jackson was very physical in this game with the Bears' corners. He beat jams and bump and runs to ultimately turn in one of his best performances of the year thus far.
