Vincent Jackson to play despite calf injury: Fantasy implications

US PRESSWIRE

Vincent Jackson is active for Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Vincent Jackson is active for Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles. He was listed on the Bucs' injury report this week with a calf injury, but was given a probable designation for Week 14 on Sunday.

There was some trepidation early in the week, after Jackson was limited in Wednesday's practice. He is not expected to be limited during the game, however. Jackson has had over 90 yards receiving in two of his last three outings.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson is a safe fantasy option this week, despite whatever murkiness may have existed early on. Consider him a decent WR2 going up against an Eagles squad that is struggling in all phases at the moment. Jackson is due to find the end zone after being held without a score in two straight games for the first time this season.
