Buccaneers receivers have hamstring issues


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Buccaneers rookie wideout Mike Evans tweaked his hamstring in Tuesday's OTA practice, and veteran receiver Vincent Jackson sat out with a hamstring issue, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Josh McCown reaching new heights with addition of Mike Evans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Josh McCown will benefit having big weapons like Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans , reports ESPN. Both receivers stand at least 6-foot-4.

Smith said McCown had the advantage of throwing to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery last season with the Bears, and he likes that formula for the passing game.

"We want to score points in any way we can,"’ Smith said. "This is a combination that looked pretty attractive to us. Of course, having a player like Josh McCown here – Josh, of course, has been in that situation and to say Josh has been in our ear quite a bit is an understatement. Seeing that [combination in Chicago] work like that was attractive to us, but as much as anything, we saw a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball that we had a chance to get that we really felt like could help us."


Bucs make smart pick with Mike Evans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.


Mike Evans boards the Buccaneers' ship


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the seventh pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers drafted Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans . The Galveston, Texas, native has drawn comparisons to Vincent Jackson with his huge 6-foot-5, 231-pound frame and ability to make awesome down-field jump-ball catches. On the other end of throws from Johnny Manziel for the past two seasons, Evans tallied 147 catches for 2,427 yards and 17 touchdowns over 25 games. Now Evans will catch passes alongside Jackson, creating a dangerous combination for the defensive backs they'll play against. 

Josh McCown 'impressed' with Vincent Jackson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."


Buccaneers must upgrade at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Buccaneers averaged a league-low 176.2 passing yards last season as the team got little receiving production behind Vincent Jackson. With Mike Williams limited to six games by a hamstring injury, Jackson drew 159 targets, more than twice as many as any other Buccaneer.

According to Fox Sports, Tampa Bay "needs more sustainable parts here to be a contender. ... Something must happen."

While Chris Owusu "could grow into a solid player," the website expects the team to be active in free agency, listing Jeremy Maclin, Hakeem Nicks, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt and Dexter McCluster as potential targets.


Vincent Jackson bats .333 in defeat against New Orleans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) One would assume that when Buccaneers premier wideout Vincent Jackson is targeted 12 times, he has had a productive game. But one would have assumed wrong on Sunday.

The dozen throws against the Saints resulted in a mere four catches for Jackson, partly due to the inaccuracy of quarterback Mike Glennon, especially in the second half. Jackson managed just one reception for 6 yards after intermission.

The 35 yards receiving was his worst total in the last seven games. But Jackson still finished the year with 79 catches for 1,224 yards, marking his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season and sixth in the last seven.


Vincent Jackson a fine Fantasy play despite obstacles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Buccaneers passing attack is again circling the drain after an encouraging run. But the one skill position player who remains a viable Fantasy option is wide receiver Vincent Jackson.

Jackson has been torrid the last six weeks with 28 catches for 527 yards and three touchdowns. He should be targeted often Sunday in New Orleans. The explosive Saints offense will likely force the Bucs to throw the ball.

He could be limited against a pass defense that is among the best in the NFL. But he remains a decent No. 1 Fantasy option in deeper leagues and a fine second choice in all formats. He faces a tough matchup playing for a struggling offense that has been held to 14 points or less in three of the last four weeks. But he should remain active in all lineups.


Vincent Jackson reaches new career-high in catches


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had another solid game in Week 16 against the Rams, though his scoring streak ended at two games in the 23-13 loss.

Jackson hauled in five of the 10 passes thrown his way in the game, and fell just short of his first 100-yard game in the last five. He finished with 98 yards, with a long reception of 30 yards.

Jackson has remained productive in spit of sometimes inconsistent play at the quarterback position this season. He now has a career-high with 74 receptions, along with 1,189 yards and seven touchdowns heading into Week 17 against the Saints.  


Vincent Jackson still playing through hamstring injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013)
Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has played through a hamstring injury for much of the season, and he will do so again in Week 16 against the Rams. Jackson is active and in uniform Sunday, as expected, as he was listed as probable on the injury report. 

Vincent Jackson looks to keep scoring streak alive


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson heads into Week 16 at St. Louis looking to extend his scoring streak to three games in a row. We like his chances against the Rams.

Jackson has at least 11 Fantasy points in a standard league in consecutive games, and he's scored in three of his past five outings. And this is a matchup he can exploit.

The Rams have been abused by No. 1 receivers all season with 13 of 14 scoring at least eight Fantasy points with 12 touchdowns allowed. Last week, Marques Colston had eight catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in St. Louis, and we expect Jackson to have similar success.

He remains a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues, and we hope Jackson's scoring streak continues in this fantastic matchup on the road.


Hamstring can't keep Vincent Jackson down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (hamstring) made it through another week in practice, and is officially probable for Week 16 against the Rams. Jackson was limited in practice earlier in the week, but had no trouble Thursday or Friday.

Vincent Jackson nets seventh touchdown in Week 15 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson scored for the second straight game and seventh time this season during a 33-14 loss Week 15 vs. San Francisco. Jackson finished with five catches for 58 yards.

Jackson was held off the stat sheet until he posted an 11-yard touchdown catch with 29 seconds left in the second quarter. Tarell Brown had really good coverage on the play, but quarterback Mike Glennon was able to hit Jackson in the back of the end zone on a slant route.

Jackson was targeted eight times and his longest catch went 16 yards. His career high for receiving touchdowns in a season is nine, which he accomplished in 2009 and 2011 with the Chargers.

The Bucs are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Bucs clear seven players for Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (hamstring), defensive end Da'Quan Bowers (knee), linebacker Lavonte David (back), defensive end William Gholston (head), guard Davin Joseph (knee, shoulder), defensive tackle Akeem Spence (wrist) and center Jeremy Zuttah (shoulder) were all cleared to play Week 15. All seven players were listed as probable.

Vincent Jackson returns to practice Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson has returned to practice Friday.

Jackson has been limited by a hamstring injury throughout the week. He was out on the field during the open portion of practice Friday. His official game status will be updated once practice is over. 


Vincent Jackson doesn't do much Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson "didn't do much" in Wednesday's practice as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury, reports the team's website. Jackson is fully expected to suit up Sunday against the 49ers.

Will Vincent Jackson's history vs. 49ers matter Week 15?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was held to three or fewer catches for the fifth time in six games Week 14 vs. Buffalo, but he still made an impact for Fantasy owners with 70 yards and one touchdown. Will Fantasy owners be able to count on Jackson again in Week 15 vs. San Francisco?

If Jackson's history against the 49ers repeats itself, then things could be looking up. Jackson has scored at least one touchdown in each of his two career games against the 49ers, including a career-high three touchdowns against the 49ers in a 2010 matchup.

The 49ers have one of the better defenses in the NFL, so it's no surprise wide receivers don't have great numbers against them. Wide receivers average 150.2 receiving yards and 17.5 Fantasy points per week, which is tied for the eighth-lowest average. Wide receivers have totaled just six touchdowns in 13 games against San Francisco, netting just one in the last five games.

Only six wide receivers have totaled at least 10 Fantasy points against San Francisco, with Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Larry Fitzgerald being the only elite Fantasy receivers to reach that plateau.

It's definitely tough to bench a player like Jackson, who you have relied on for most of the season. But he might not have a lot of high-end upside Week 15, so if you have another viable option with a better matchup, then maybe this is a week to use another option with so much on the line in Fantasy playoff matchups.


Vincent Jackson tops 1,000-yard mark in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson only caught three passes in Week 14 against the Bills, but he scored his first touchdown in three weeks in a 27-6 win.

Jackson brought in three of the eight passes thrown his way for 70 yards, accounting for nearly all of the team's receiving yards. His longest play of the game went for a 38-yard touchdown, and nearly had another in the fourth quarter. He appeared score from 14 yards out, but the play was reviewed and revealed that Jackson's heel hit out of bounds before he finished the catch.

Jackson surpassed the 1,000-yard mark with Sunday's game, the fifth time he has done so in his career. He enters Week 15 against the 49ers with 64 receptions for 1,033 yards and six touchdowns.
