Buccaneers | Jameis Winston, DeSean Jackson improving bond

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:24:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston and WR DeSean Jackson have already spent time together this offseason to improve their deep-ball chemistry. Winston said they're going to find more time to work outside the team facility and build their connection.

Fantasy Tip: Tampa Bay's offense was relatively disappointing last year. Winston and Jackson's chemistry, or lack thereof, was part of that disappointment. The two can only build on how they performed in 2018. That being said, Winston has QB1 appeal and Jackson, who is primarily a one-trick deep threat, has WR3 to WR4 value.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to be featured?

Sat, 07 Apr 2018 19:25:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston posted on Twitter that he will "personally" make sure to show how valuable WR DeSean Jackson is to the offense in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Tampa Bay's passing attack never really clicked last year, and Winston and Jackson struggled to connect on big plays. Another year together could help matters, and Jackson still possesses WR3 upside because of his ability to stretch the field.

Buccaneers | More targets for DeSean Jackson?

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 10:57:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson did not see as many opportunities as he should have last season, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. "That has to change and we're working on concepts right now."

Fantasy Tip: Coach speak is commonplace in the offseason, but Koetter sounds serious about increasing Jackson's involvement. It was his first year with the scallywags, after all. Jackson possesses WR3 upside as a more suitable selection in standard formats.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson not being investigated

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 11:24:08 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson's case involving his vehicle that was allegedly found wrecked will bullets and marijuana is inactive. Tampa police said there were no witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the wreck.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is coming off a down year, but it was a down year for the Buccaneers offense as a whole in 2017. It didn't help that Jackson missed two games. If he can keep himself beyond reproach and stay healthy he has WR2 upside in standard leagues. It's best to draft him as a flex, though.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson wants chemistry with QB

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 18:51:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said he and QB Jameis Winston need to "merge" this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Both Jackson and the Tampa Bay offense disappointed last year, but another offseason could help Jackson and Winston get on the same page. Jackson still has enough big-play potential to grab in the later rounds in 2018.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson listed as limited

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 16:14:22 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play in Week 16 but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 17. He has been held to under 50 yards in four of his last five games and has two catches or less in three of those games. He could still be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he is active for Week 17.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson back at practice Wednesday

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 11:45:30 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) was spotted at practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson did not play in Week 16 due to a foot injury and is near the end of a terrible first season with the Buccaneers, averaging a career low 13.4 yards per catch with only three touchdowns. Given how impressive rookie Chris Godwin has been in limited action, it is quite possible Tampa Bay decides to move on from Jackson in the offseason. If Jackson plays this weekend versus the New Orleans Saints, he should be considered no more than a middling WR3 in fantasy.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to miss Week 16

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 11:15:40 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Godwin will likely draw the start opposite Mike Evans, although it's going to be hard to roll with the rookie during fantasy championship week given his limited track record. Evans and Cameron Brate should vie for Jameis Winston's attention for most of the game.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson idle Friday

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 07:24:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 22, and he's unlikely to play in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Humphries had a 5-43-1 line last week, and the Carolina Panthers are the worst at defending the WR position the last five weeks. He's a flex option if you're hurting.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson misses practice

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 10:50:39 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: If Jackson continues to miss practice then Adam Humphries would enter the realm of the sneaky starts. That's not to mention that Mike Evans is already an automatic start. Track Jackson's status over the next couple of days, but be ready to pick up Humphries if necessary.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson misses practice

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 18:28:00 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson suffered the injury in the last game, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He has been inconsistent with his production over the last several weeks and has been held to 25 yards or less in two of the last three games. Owners could consider benching Jackson this week if they have better options.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson quiet in MNF defeat

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 23:01:08 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught his only target for 11 yards and also had seven rushing yards on one attempt before leaving due to injury in the team's Week 15 loss Monday, Dec. 18, against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson simply wasn't able to get anything going before exiting in the second half, which is pretty surprising considering his quarterback had arguably his best game of the year. If Jackson has to miss any additional time, Adam Humphries may be someone to consider riding, especially after he finally logged his first touchdown of the campaign in this one.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson exits with ankle issue

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 19:49:58 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) had to leave the game Monday, Dec. 18, versus the Atlanta Falcons. He's considered doubtful to return to the contest.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a rough night for the Bucs, who have simply been piling up the injuries in this one. Jackson was having a weak showing anyway before going down with injury, totaling a miniscule 18 total yards (11 receiving, seven rushing). With him sidelined, Mike Evans and Adam Humphries should see additional looks the rest of the way.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson totals 64 yards

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 18:54:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson ended up with four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets and he added a 23-yard rush.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has posted two or more receptions in each of his 13 games so far this season, regardless of the quarterback. While his yardage totals haven't been great, he remains a decent WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson has two grabs

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 16:00:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson posted two catches for 24 yards on three targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was listed as questionable this week due to a foot injury, but he fell just short and was unable to haul in a touchdown in the back of the end zone. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues in Week 14 and beyond.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson active for Week 13

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 08:55:39 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is active for Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated on a limited basis in the team's final two practice sessions of the week. He has a favorable matchup this afternoon against a shaky Green Bay secondary and is worth considering as a WR3 or flex option.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to suit up

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 21:39:13 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson draws a favorable matchup against a shaky Green Bay secondary, so it is a little easier to roll him out there as a boom-or-bust WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson listed as limited

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 14:53:50 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson appears to be on track to play in Week 13, but owners will know about his status later in the week. He has been inconsistent in terms of his receiving yards over the last few weeks but should have Jameis Winston back this week. He should have a favorable matchup this week and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 14:19:27 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) was unable to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, due to his foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to haul in a season-best eight catches in Week 12, and he has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the past three games. When healthy he is a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues.

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:28:23 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught eight passes for 60 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's eight catches were a season high and has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the last three games. He should have a solid role in the passing game against the Green Bay Packers next week and can be a No. 3 receiver.

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 17:34:38 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson posted two receptions for 28 yards on a touchdown in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: The yardage total wasn't huge, but the touchdown was certainly nice. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 12 against the Falcons on the road.

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:59:36 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught six passes for 82 yards against the New York Jets in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson posted his best yards total in the month and has been targeted at least eight times in three of his last four games. He should continue to be a solid option in the passing game and can be a flex option in leagues.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson posts 25 yards

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:01:34 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson finished with two receptions and 25 yards on four targets in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson also ran once for eight yards, but the yardage total was his second-lowest of the season. He has just one 100-yard game and only two visits to the end zone through eight games. Jackson remains more of a WR4 or flex plays in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Jets.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson posts three grabs

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:55:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson hauled in three balls for 37 yards on eight targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a secondary option in the Tampa Bay pass game, although he does have one 100-yard game to none for Mike Evans. Still, he should be treated more as a WR4 or flex option heading into Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson leads TB in receiving

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 21:11:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught five passes for 106 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the New England Patriots. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax led or tied for the team lead in receptions, yardage and targets, and it was his first triple-digit performance since joining the Bucs. He has always been a "feast or famine" fantasy option, and that figures to continue moving forward.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson catches TD

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:35:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 84 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has been targeted seven times in each of the first two games and will continue to be a big part of the passing game because of his deep-threat potential. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in all leagues next week.

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:12:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 39 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is expected to be a deep threat for the Bucs this season but was held in check this week. He may only be a flex option in Week 3 since he will be facing the Minnesota Vikings.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans pumped for DeSean Jackson

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:19:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said it will be "awesome" to play with WR DeSean Jackson, and he believes they "could be one of the best tandems in the league."

Fantasy Tip: Evans was already one of the top fantasy receivers, and having Jackson to take the top off defenses should only help his value. Jackson can be a little big-play dependent, but he has enough upside to use as a WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to occasionally return punts

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 09:23:43 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will return punts moving forward, but head coach Dirk Koetter said the team will be selective when to use him in that role.

Fantasy Tip: In other words, Jackson will not be the primary punt returner, but he will be asked to field a punt when the team could use a big play on special teams. It's unlikely to result in more than 10 or 15 returns per season, but it could serve as a small boost to his fantasy value in return-yardage leagues. Jackson should be able to maintain his WR3 value in Tampa Bay.

Buccaneers | Big money for DeSean Jackson

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:37:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson's deal is for three years and is worth $33.5 million with $20 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will add a big-play weapon to Tampa Bay's offense, and he should help Jameis Winston make another leap forward. Jackson could still be boom or bust from one game to the next, but he has enough upside to grab as a WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson officially signs with Bucs

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:53:19 -0800

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) officially signed to a three-year, $35 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson joins Mike Evans for a dynamic deep-threat duo for Jameis Winston to throw to. Evans will still be Winston's go-to target, but Jackson will be able to open up the field for the Buccaneers and will ideally make the offense better as a whole. There's reason to be excited about Jackson in his new uniform, but he should not be viewed as more than a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to Bucs

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 05:37:19 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is coming off a 56-1,005-4 season in a powerful offense. Those numbers aren't bad, but more was expected when he left Philadelphia after a career year in 2013. Jackson has upside as a WR3 with Mike Evans commanding so much attention on one side.

Redskins | WAS, DeSean Jackson expected to part ways

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 19:12:46 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson and the team are expected to part ways, multiple people with knowledge of the situation have indicated. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys have all inquired about the wide receiver, and "barring any unforeseen circumstances," Jackson will not be in Washington next season.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the anticipated result of Jackson's free-agency journey, with the only question being just where he'll end up. The Buccaneers have emerged as the early frontrunners for a variety of reasons, but the other teams mentioned could make an interesting case as well to land the nine-year veteran. Regardless of where he plays, Jackson will still have WR2 potential.

Buccaneers | Strong 'belief' DeSean Jackson signs w/ TB

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 15:07:56 -0800

Impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) is expected to land a contract that will pay him close to $12 million annually, and the among league personnel at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is that Jackson will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Fantasy Tip: Pauline cites strong-armed Jameis Winston, the warm weather and no state income tax as reasons Jackson will find the Bucs attractive. It would be a huge get for Tampa Bay, as defenses would have to think twice about tilting their coverages toward Mike Evans with one of the league's best deep threats on the other side. While Jackson would probably remain a boom-or-bust WR3 and Evans might take a slight hit, Winston would shoot right up into fantasy QB1 territory.

Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston likes DeSean Jackson to TB

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:58:09 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he would love if the Buccaneers signed Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and would make a solid tandem in Tampa Bay with Mike Evans. Jackson will have a solid role in an offense in 2017 and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson wants to play with great QB

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 19:07:07 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson said that if he leaves the team in free agency, he wants to play with a "great quarterback." When asked about QB Kirk Cousins, he referred to him as "great" as well.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has also been linked to the Eagles and Buccaneers, both led by young quarterbacks who have the potential to be great one day, but with Jackson entering the latter portion of his career, he might prefer to stick with a more established option like Cousins. Despite being 30 years old, Jackson proved this past season he still has more than enough left in the tank, and can still offer solid value depending on where he ends up in 2017.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson could draw Bucs' interest

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:48:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson could receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources. Jackson has a rapport with QB Jameis Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson would benefit from elite receiver Mike Evans anchoring one side. D-Jax just turned 30, and he is a better option in non-PPR formats. In such, he'd make a low-end WR3.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to receive strong interest

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:33:32 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is expected to receive strong interest once free agency begins because he is still only of the fastest receivers in the NFL even though he is 30 years old.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has posted at least 1,000 yards in three of the last four seasons and has recorded four touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. Jackson should be a starting receiver for whoever he plays for in 2017 and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
