Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has burned plenty of opposing defenses this season, but is no stranger to barely showing up on the stat sheet either. On Monday night versus the Dolphins, he leaned toward the latter.
Jackson finished the evening with just three catches for 28 yards in an evening where the Buccaneers had little going on in the passing game. With rookie quarterback Mike Glennon, inconsistency is expected in the passing game, and with the Buccaneers leaning toward a more balanced attack, Jackson's high-volume numbers have taken a hit in recent weeks. Despite that, Jackson still remains the top option and a top talent that always poses the threat of a big game.
Fantasy Spin: With the Atlanta Falcons next on the Bucs' schedule, Jackson ought to once again have a field day versus a defensive unit he abused back in Week 7 for 138 yards and two touchdowns on a whopping 22 targets. Expect Jackson to be targeted early and often with the Falcons allowing an average of 252 passing yards each game, giving up a near league-worst 19 passing touchdowns. Though Jackson is a high-variance receiver, his upside makes him a must-start each week.
