Jackson now has registered touchdowns of 36, 58, and 75 yards this season. Sustainable? No. Yet that now gives him 445 yards and four touchdowns in Ryan Fitzpatrick's last four starts. Patrick Mahomes averaged 11.6 yards per pass in his six-touchdown outburst against the Steelers, so they're a defense Tampa Bay's red-hot duo could burn deep.

Injury-based fantasy advice - START - Jackson exploded in week 1 for 146 yards and two touchdowns, but a concussion and shoulder injury ended his day early. He somehow recovered in time to suit up against the Eagles and posted strong numbers again. Jackson will be much healthier this weekend, so he should once again have plenty of upside.

Jackson has caught nine passes on just nine targets for 275 yards and three touchdowns in two games. He is averaging 30.6 yards per catch. That will not continue, but Jackson is a great play this week against a bad Steelers secondary.

There may be someone willing to believe that Jackson's performances will continue, but you shouldn't be one of them. Look, 75-yard touchdowns don't fall from trees and players are lucky to have a couple of them a year. He played just 20 snaps in Week 1 and will be splitting snaps with Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries the remainder of the season. When Ryan Fitzpatrick cools off, so will Jackson.
