Vincent Jackson, WR, Buccaneers
2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-30-2014 by Rusty Reeves
Jackson is Mr. Consistency. He went for over 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons (he missed 11 games in 2010). As the Bucs' lone bright spot on offense last season, Jackson hauled in 78 catches for 1,228 yards and seven touchdowns. There were times when it appeared that Mike Glennon's gameplan was to simply throw it towards V-Jax. A lot of times, that worked. Jackson saw double-digit targets in nine of the team's 16 games, despite facing double-coverage much of the time. This year, the Bucs have given the former Northern Colorado receiver a sidekick in rookie WR Mike Evans (and another weapon in the passing game,TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins). If Jackson and new QB Josh McCown can develop some chemistry, Jackson is a lock to eclipse 1,000 yards yet again (and could reach double-digit TDs for the first time in his career). It's hard to project a WR to be a stud with so many new pieces on offense, which is why we have him as a WR2. There is potential Top 10 upside here.
Editor's note: Jackson has an absurd 306 targets over his two seasons in Tampa Bay. Only Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson and A.J. Green accounted for that many targets over the same span. Considering Jackson posted the numbers he did with Freeman and Glennon at QB, projecting him to somehow perform worse this season doesn't make much sense. He'd have to hit the wall hard.

|4.03||Mr. Landry - Thought Jackson had a lot more upside than the 2nd RB I needed. He's got a healthy Martin and, most likely, McCown throwing to him. Reaching his two year average with the Bucs (1,300 yards/8TDs) should be a piece of cake.|
