Jackson suffered the injury in Tampa's Week 5 Monday night win over the Panthers, but didn't realize he was injured until after the game. It ends an inglorious year for the 33-year-old wideout, and likely his Bucs tenure. Signed to a five-year, $55.5 million deal in 2012, Jackson was the rare free agent who kept playing at a high level, but has seen his production fall off each of the past three years. He turns 34 in January, and will be damaged goods in free agency. The Bucs will move forward with slot man Adam Humphries as their No. 2 receiver. It's not a good situation. RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant:
With Jackson on the shelf, Mike Evans and Cameron Brate are both very intriguing targets. SF ranks dead last in DVOA against #1 WRs, and Evans was already a strong play, so he's an even stronger target at this point. Adam Humphries should pick up most of the slack at WR, but Brate is the more appealing DFS option.
