Vincent Jackson injury update: WR questionable, expected to play for fantasy owners

Gregory Shamus

The Buccaneers wide receiver is listed is questionable but is expected to play in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (hamstring) is listed as questionable but is expected to play in the team's Week 14 game against the Buffalo Bills, barring a setback. Jackson practiced on Thursday and Friday after sitting out on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson should suit up on Sunday and should make for an appealing fantasy start. He's had a pretty mixed season thus far, which is to be expected when one factors in Tampa's struggles and other injuries. Jackson has a solid five touchdowns on the year but only one since Week 11. He has topped the 100-yard receiving mark an outstanding four times this year, but again only once since Week 11. While Jackson's play hasn't been sub-par, there is always a chance that a wide receiver can throw you a couple of dud stat lines here and there when he has a rookie quarterback.

Jackson has an extremely enticing matchup this week in the Buffalo Bills, who give up the second most fantasy points to wide receivers in PPR formats. An established end zone threat, Jackson brings value in all formats. He's a mid-range WR1 play and needs to be in starting lineups.
