Vincent Jackson injury update: Day-to-day tag keeps fantasy value alive for Week 4

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Vincent Jackson is going to be fine after Sunday's scare. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson is considered as day-to-day with a rib injury that is not serious. He sustained the injury on Sunday in Week 3's game against the Patriots and did not return.

He had just three catches for 34 yards in the loss. The Bucs gave him a full battery of tests to make sure he was okay, and from the looks of things, he has received their clearance.

Fantasy impact: The Bucs will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and they're going to need V-Jax if they want to earn their first victory of the season.  He has been fairly durable in his past two seasons, playing in all 16 games with at least 1,100 yards and eight TDs in each. Jackson is a must-start option as long as he's in the lineup. Even though Patrick Peterson could limit him, there's no way any fantasy owner can sit him.
