Buccaneers | Mike Williams traded

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:57:30 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded WR Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: The trade leaves a gaping whole at the wide receiver position opposite Vincent Jackson. You can bet the Bucs will look to the draft to rectify that, possibly with their first-round pick (seventh overall). Even if they land a stud wide receiver in the draft to take over for Williams, a learning curve will be there, and opposing defenses will likely pay plenty of attention to Jackson. This trade could hurt his value in 2014.

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 18:53:13 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: More will be known on Jackson's status Thursday and Friday. If he is able to suit up, he faces a difficult matchup, as the San Francisco 49ers rank fourth in the NFL against the pass. If active, Jackson should be treated as more of a WR3/4 or flex fantasy play this week.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson quiet in Week 4

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 21:42:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) had two receptions for 27 yards in the Week 4 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was targeted 11 times by rookie QB Mike Glennon, but apparently their rapport was not quite up to snuff. Jackson remains a solid WR2/3 or flex play, and as he and Glennon jell, the production should improve.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson to play

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 08:35:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active for the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was listed as questionable for the game but appears healthy enough to play in the game. There is a good chance Jackson could be limited because of his injury, so owners should view him as a risky starter for Week 4.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson dealing with rib injury

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 06:10:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is dealing with an injury to multiple ribs, and is deciding to take a pain killing shot and play through the injury. The Buccaneers are being cautious with Jackson and may let him rest through the bye, as this is a 5-week injury to fully heal.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury, Jackson is a player you need to have in your lineup if he is on the field. It would not be a surprise however to see a dip in production with the injury and a rookie quarterback playing in his first game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WRs Vincent Jackson (rib) and Mike Williams (hamstring), who both returned to practice in a limited fashion Friday, Sept. 27, and will be listed as questionable for Week 4, according to head coach Greg Schiano.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like both Jackson and Williams will suit up this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. How effective they'll be with rookie Mike Glennon making his debut is another question. Consider them somewhat risky plays.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson misses practice

Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:44:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: V-Jax was unable to finish the game last weekend and has yet to practice this week. You should definitely be concerned here. Plus, the Bucs are moving to rookie Mike Glennon against the Arizona Cardinals, so it's unknown how the two will gel initially. If you have better options and you feel like playing it safe, we wouldn't blame you for sitting Jackson. Stay tuned on how he fares tomorrow.

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 18:40:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Jackson's injury is not yet known, and we'll know more after practice Friday. He now has rookie QB Mike Glennon throwing to him, so there might be some growing pains in the passing game. If Jackson plays, consider him more of a WR3 or flex play in Week 4.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson seeing time in slot

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 12:25:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson has frequently lined up in the slot in practice. He could be a fixture there in the 2-minute offense.

Fantasy Tip: Lining up in the slot is a good place to run deep routes that could net significant points in leagues where long touchdown catches are rewarded. Jackson is a low No. 1 or a good No. 2 fantasy receiver.
