Vincent Jackson active against Saints, fantasy owners can start with confidence

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Tampa Bay's top receiver is set to start after a calf injury put him on the injury report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (calf) is active Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Jackson was listed as probable this week, but is now officially a lock to start against the Saints' last-ranked defense. The former Chargers wide receiver leads the team with 370 yards in five games.

Fantasy Take: Jackson has been highly productive for Tampa Bay and should be listed as a WR1 against the Saints, who have allowed the second-most net yards per pass attempt in the NFL. Jackson scored two touchdowns last week against the Chiefs, and he might be even more productive against New Orleans.

Fellow Bucs receiver Mike Williams also looks like a solid play Sunday as a flex or WR3.
