Vincent Jackson injury update: Bucs WR will be ready for fantasy owners

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Vincent Jackson will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson is listed as probable to face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Jackson put in a full practice on Thursday and Friday, and his groin injury is not considered serious.

Jackson's numbers have taken a turn for the worse in recent weeks. Last week, he had just 28 yards on three catches during the Bucs' win against the Miami Dolphins. Prior to that game, he had just 11 yards on two catches against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jackson was on fire to start the season. He was among the league leaders in receiving yards and scores at one point. His prospects are looking up this week. In his last game against the Falcons, he was targeted a ridiculous 22 times, producing 10 catches for 138 yards and two scores.

Fantasy impact: If that last game against Atlanta doesn't get you excited to start Jackson, then you must have been badly burned by him over the past couple weeks. Jackson owners have to start him, especially because the Buccaneers do not have a real running back on the roster.
