Vincent Jackson had just 1 catch for 13 yards in week 8 vs. the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Mike Glennon only passed for 171 yards and Vjax simply could not get going. He's been a fantasy disappointment this season and we don't see the trend changing in this inconsistent and dreadful passing offense.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has been a middle of the road fantasy option but will be active today against the Vikings secondary, which ranks 16th in the league against the pass. Owners can hope for a score today from the red zone monster.

Vincent Jackson caught 4 balls for 66 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: VJax missed out on a big game by inches. He caught a 30 yard pass that was ruled a touchdown, but was overturned on replay when it showed the edge of his heel was out of bounds on the catch. Jackson is still a high level WR2 with Glennon under center.

Fantasy Impact: While he is maddeningly inconsistent (largely due to unstable QB play), there are few WR's that are as physically gifted as Jackson. He is a must-start low-end WR1 when healthy enough to play.

This was the Sunday that fantasy owners have waited for. Vincent Jackson went off for 144 yards on 12 targets, which was more than he had the first four games of the season. Mike Glennon had a strong connection with VJax last year so it's no real surprise that they're keeping it going this year. He will work to keep it going next week against the Baltimore Ravens at home. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Vincent Jackson may have let his fantasy owners down the first four games of the season but as many fantasy owners learned this week, patience is a virtue. Jackson remains a must-start, especially with Mike Evans out for another week or two.

After fracturing his hand week 3 against the Falcons, Vincent Jackson showed up Sunday & helped the Bucs' come away with a crucial win. He made a stunning diving catch & helped deliver the Steelers their final blow. It's safe to say, that the Buccaneers were the clear underdog coming into this game after being demolished by the Falcons last week. So it was an impressive win for a team with their backs against the wall. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Many fantasy owners have been disappointed by Vincent Jackson so far this year; however, he played through a fractured hand to put up decent numbers on Sunday. He has also increased his fantasy numbers each of the four weeks so far this year. With Mike Glennon putting some life into the Buccaneers offense, there is still plenty of hope here for Jackson to turn around his early season woes.

Vincent Jackson caught 2 passes for 15 yards and 1 TD.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy players watched in horror as VJax and the Bucs were torched in primetime. Lucking for his owners, Jackson scored a late TD to moderately salvage his production. QB Josh McCown is looking at a sprained throwing thumb, paving the way for Mike Glennon to start. Glennon did have better chemistry with Jackson last year than McCown has shown, which should benefit VJax.

Jeff Tedford was supposed to install a high octane offense, but right now it's looking stagnant at best. On Sunday, VJax was a casualty of the Bucs' slow & conservative offense, when he only recorded 51 yards. The Bucs showed little faith in McCown when they decided to run it three times in the redzone for little gain and failed to call a pass play. (Source: Pewter Report)

Fantasy Impact: Had VJax been give an opportunity to make a touchdown, his numbers could have been respectable; however, it was another sad outing for him. The good news here is that he will be given another opportunity at backing up his fourth round ADP right away when the Bucs face the Falcons on Thursday. Since the Falcons have a fast paced offense, it won't be surprisingly if the Bucs will have to play from behind during most of the game, so VJax should be given his fair share of targets.

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.

Tampa Bay elected captains on Monday, with Vincent Jackson & Josh McCown representing the offense. The fact that VJax was elected captain should not be a surprise, but it's notable that both VJax & McCown got elected. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Through camp & preseason it has looked like McCown has been building chemistry with Jackson & Evans. Now, it seems like there is also a healthy offense situation and building chemistry on the Bucs. This is completely opposite to what the Bucs had last year with Freeman. VJax numbers dropped a little last year but with the new & improved situation on the Bucs he should have no problem being one of the best fantasy wide receivers again.

Against the Bills on Saturday, Vincent Jackson snagged five receptions for 43 yards

Fantasy Impact: Vincent Jackson continues to be heavily targeted in Jeff Tedford's offense. He dominated Bills' CB Stephon Gilmore with his size, catching every single McCown target. Jackson will most likely finish the season as a top 24 receiver, however he is known for his boom or bust inconsistent production

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Head Coach Lovie Smith told reporters that Vincent Jackson is his No. 1 receiver. He also added, "In order for us to have success, Vincent has to have a great year. He's doing everything to get himself in a position to do that." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The fantasy football community assumed Jackson would be a first string wide receiver this year. However, it's reassuring to hear Lovie Smith confirm that Jackson will be leaned on this year. Jackson is coming off a career high season in receptions and targets. With an upgrade at quarterback in 2014, Jackson should be considered a high-end WR2 in fantasy drafts.

On Sirius XM NFL Radio, Vincent Jackson said, "I love what I have seen so far... he can make all the throws and we are building that chemistry." He also said that he is excited about what he has seen from McCown so far. (Source: NFL Spin Zone)

Fantasy Impact: It will be important for the success of the Buccaneers offense, that Jackson & McCown build a strong rapport. If they succeed, fantasy owners should expect another pro-bowl type season from Jackson.
