Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide out Vincent Jackson is probably for Thursday Night Football. We breakdown the fantasy implications.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson participated fully in Wednesday's practice after being limited earlier in the week. The team's No. 1 wide out was nursing a calf injury, but seems to be close to 100-percent. Jackson is probable for Thursday Night Football's match-up with the Minnesota Vikings.
Since arriving in Tampa Bay, Jackson has been thriving with strong-armed quarterback Josh Freeman. He's maintained his prestige as an effective, big-bodied deep threat.
Fantasy Analysis: Jackson's practice participation this week revealed progress in terms of his health. The calf appears to be less of an issue, making Jackson a sure-fire start in Week 8. Jackson is a top-10 fantasy receiver this year, and should continue to thrive with the Buccaneers.
This week's match-up versus the Vikings on primetime isn't too bad. Jackson should have plenty of opportunities to run through this Minnesota secondary. Make sure he's in your lineup, because he plays tomorrow night.
