As far as stats are concerned, Vincent Jackson had a horrible season opener. He was outplayed by a rookie, Mike Evans, and hauled in only 4 out of 9 passes for 36 yards. However, it's not fair to pin all of the blame on Jackson. Some of the other factors took part in VJax's low outage was that the Buccaneers offense was inconsistent, their O-Line was not on the same page, and McCown did not look like a veteran QB. In fact, in McCown's post game conference he took "100 percent" of the blame. (Source: Bleacher Report
Fantasy Impact: For now, it looks like VJax is a bust at his ADP of 40, however, there is some upside here. The Bucs offense had a major overhaul this off season with new players and new coaching; so, it may take a couple of weeks for the offense to come together. For now, it's best for fantasy owners to handle VJax with care and not expect much for the next couple of weeks. But, Vjax has a good shot of regaining form before the end of the season.
