Vincent Jackson put up huge numbers against the Giants in Week 2. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Buccaneers gave Vincent Jackson a huge deal in the offseason to add some firepower for 2012, and they got their money's worth in Week 2. Jackson caught five passes for 128 yards and a touchdown, finishing with a huge 25.6 yard per catch average.

Fantasy Impact: It didn't take long for Jackson to make a splash with his new team. He's been notorious for inconsistent fantasy performances, so it will take more time to figure out if that will be the case with the Bucs. Greg Schiano wants to run the ball, but he showed this week that he can let the offense air it out when necessary. Continue to start Jackson every week, but understand he'll explode from time to time while putting in average numbers the rest of the time.
