2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
With second-year players Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn suffering through sophomore slumps in 2011, the Buccaneers were in the market for a big play wide receiver and Jackson figures to take over as the team’s top threat in 2012. Jackson signed a five-year, $55-million contract with Tampa Bay that includes $36-million in payments over the first three years of the deal. The former Division II player out of Northern Colorado possesses excellent size at 6’5” and 230 pounds and speed as his career average yards per catch of 17.5 indicates. Jackson has also shown the ability to out jump defenders on deep balls. Removing his injury-marred, suspension and contract holdout shortened 2010 season, Jackson caught 187 passes for 3,371 yards and 25 touchdowns during the 2008, 2009 and 2011 seasons. However, that production was in San Diego. He goes from catching passes from one of the top quarterbacks in the league and playing in the league’s 5th ranked scoring offense to playing with a far more inexperienced quarterback coming off a horrible season and playing in the league’s 27th ranked scoring offense. Jackson was the 10th ranked fantasy wide receiver in 2011 but he rates as a mid-tier WR2 in 2012. Simply put, Josh Freeman is coming off a horrendous season and has not proven to be as accurate on deep passes as Philip Rivers and those plays have been Jackson’s bread and butter throughout his career.

News From The Past 90 Days
Winston officially named starting QB for Bucs     -- Fri Jul 31 3:30 pm --

Lovie Smith says 1st overall pick will take first team reps
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith announced Friday that No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston will be the team's starting quarterback. "Jameis Winston is our starting quarterback. He'll be taking first-team reps tomorrow," Smith said of the Bucs' first practice of training camp. "We brought him in here to be our quarterback." The quote is noteworthy only because it's the first time Smith has bluntly stated Winston would be the starter. During offseason workouts and minicamp Winston didn't take all the first-team reps, with Smith saying the rookie needed to "earn" the job. Winston apparently did just that. "All this talk about Jameis needing a mentor... Jameis doesn't need a mentor," he said, per NFL Media's Jeff Darlington. "He's ready to take the reins and go with it." (

FF Today's Take: It's rarely a confidence-instilling tactic to select a rookie quarterback in fantasy drafts, but Winston might be a serviceable slinger in two quarterback leagues. In his favor, he has an ideal wide receiving corps in twin towers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson; both are 6-foot-5 and are major red zone threats.
