Date:

Vincent Jackson secured six balls for 70 yards in the Buccaneers' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

He saw ten targets to Mike Evans' eight. The Buccaneers have begun using V-Jax and Evans as basically co-No. 1 receivers, which has helped Jackson's target totals the past few weeks. In a possible shootout versus Green Bay in Week 16, Jackson will be a quality WR3 game in fantasy leagues.
Dec 14 - 5:09 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 10-of-17 targets for 159 yards Week 14 against the Lions.

It was a nice bounce-back for Jackson after a two catch performance in Week 13. Under pressure all game, Josh McCown routinely just threw the ball up to Jackson, and Jackson rewarded him by making several big plays. Jackson still has plenty of gas left in the tank, but is a WR3 in the Bucs' struggling offense.
Dec 7 - 5:15 PM

Vincent Jackson secured 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the Bucs' Week 13 loss to Cincinnati.

Jackson showed last week (5-117) that he has gas left in the tank, but his role has begun to dwindle in Tampa's offense, with Mike Evans taking over as the No. 1 receiver. V-Jax will be a fringe WR3 against Detroit in Week 14.
Nov 30 - 5:38 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 5-of-9 targets for 117 yards Week 12 against the Bears.

Jackson saw two fewer targets than Mike Evans, but made two huge catches to convert on third and long and appeared to be Josh McCown's target of choice when he got into trouble. Despite Evans' emergence over the last several weeks, Jackson is not going anywhere. He will be on the WR2 radar the rest of the season.
Nov 23 - 5:07 PM

Vincent Jackson caught three passes for 43 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Jackson was the No. 2 option behind Mike Evans, who finished with a 7/209/2 line. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4 and is going to continue to lose red-zone looks to Evans. Jackson will be on the WR2 radar in Week 12 for a matchup against the Bears' bottom-five pass defense.
Nov 16 - 5:36 PM

Vincent Jackson caught eight passes for 75 yards in the Bucs' Week 10 loss to the Falcons.

Jackson was targeted a game-high 13 times, but continues to not reel in as many passes as we'd like considering his high target total. The knee issue that had him questionable wasn't a problem. Jackson isn't getting the end-zone looks, with those going to Mike Evans, who has five scores the past five games. Jackson will be on the WR2 radar against Washington next week.
Nov 9 - 5:37 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) is active for Week 10 against the Falcons.

As expected. Jackson slots in as a mid-range WR2 in a favorable matchup.
Nov 9 - 11:38 AM

Vincent Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 10.

V-Jax was upgraded to a full practice on Friday. He's played through numerous questionable tags already this year and will almost certainly start versus Atlanta.
Nov 7 - 2:01 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) returned to Bucs practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wednesday was just a day of rest for the Bucs' veteran No. 1 receiver. Going up against the Falcons' porous defense, V-Jax is a WR2 for Week 10, even with Josh McCown supplanting Mike Glennon.
Nov 6 - 2:05 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a rest day for Jackson, who didn't suffer any setbacks in Sunday's loss. With the Bucs going back to Josh McCown at quarterback, Jackson will be more of a WR3 option for Week 10.
Nov 5 - 2:10 PM

Vincent Jackson secured 6-of-12 targets for 86 yards in the Buccaneers' Week 9 loss to the Browns.

Mike Evans caught both of Mike Glennon's touchdown passes, but V-Jax led the Bucs in targets and came away with a solid box-score performance based on sheer volume. The Browns let Joe Haden travel with Jackson for most of the game -- and Haden won most of those matchups -- but Jackson went up against Buster Skrine enough to register solid production. He'll be a WR2 when Tampa Bay takes on Atlanta next. V-Jax owners should hope the Bucs do not turn back to Josh McCown following another loss.
Nov 2 - 4:39 PM

According to FOX's Jay Glazer, the Eagles tried to trade for Bucs WR Vincent Jackson at the deadline.

The Bucs declined the deal, as it was likely a late-round pick offer for a No. 1 wideout that's under contract reasonably through 2016. But it's interesting as it shows the Eagles are looking to upgrade on the perimeter, where Riley Cooper is a liability when he's not blocking. Jordan Matthews, whose snap count has been on the rise lately, is a name to watch in Philly.
Nov 2 - 12:24 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 9.

V-Jax is coming off a one-catch, 13-yard clunker, but should have openings if the Browns leave Joe Haden at left cornerback on Sunday, something they've done often this season. In that scenario, Jackson would end up running a lot of routes against burnable RCB Buster Skrine. The Bucs pass-game dysfunction has hurt him, but Jackson should be in fantasy lineups this week.
Oct 31 - 2:34 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

V-Jax's status for Sunday's game against the Browns isn't in doubt. With six teams on bye, Jackson is in the WR1 discussion.
