Fantasy football start/sit Week 10: What to do with DeSean Jackson

Tampa’s No. 2 receiver will have to fill a void in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson may just deliver top flight numbers against the New York Jets in Week 10. Teammate Mike Evans is out due to suspension making Jackson the team’s lead game breaker.

The Jets have been rather generous to wide receivers this season, conceding 19 touchdowns to the position through nine games.

Fantasy impact: Jackson was one of the bigger splashes in free agency last summer, but he hasn’t produced the way he used to fantasy wise.

The reality is things have changed. He’s getting a bit older and no longer the top receiver on his team. He may however be just that in Week 10.

Jackson is still targeted on a regular basis and with Mike Evans out, he’ll be counted on heavily this Sunday.

Fantasy owners who’ve followed his career have always known he’s a boom-or-bust player. It’s what happens when you’re the deep threat on your team.

This week Jamies Winston should look to him underneath and get him more involved. Start Jackson

Recommendation: Start
