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.
Buccaneers new quarterback 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. Now, this doesnt elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and rookie wide receiver Mike Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues. Jackson has produced 1,100-plus yards each of his last 3 seasons along with recording 60-plus receptions and at least 7 touchdowns per season in each of his last 3 years.
He was sabotaged by QB Josh Freeman early in the season and rookie QB Mike Glennon's growing pains after that, but he still finished with 78 receptions for 1,224 yards and seven touchdowns. He is not likely to obtain WR1 value in Lovie Smith's more conservative offense.
