2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The days of DeSean Jackson being a top tier boom-bust option seem to be in the past. Coming off a 3 TD season, this is third straight season in which he finished with fewer than 5 TDs. Additionally, Jackson's fantasy points per game peaked in 2013 and have become progressively worse each year since.

The positive spin for Jackson is that he's also no longer being drafted as a meaningful asset. At WR62, Jackson's value doesn't need to be that of a consistent starter to exceed his draft value, but in the 14th round, there are likely better lottery ticket options for drafters to consider.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeSean Jackson misses practice Thursday
Achilles injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 27, 11:45 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Still no DeSean Jackson at Bucs practice today, but Gerald McCoy and Jason Pierre-Paul are back working today as team prepares for season finale Sunday vs. Falcons. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jackson got the back of his ankle stepped on last week and it appears he might miss the season finale against the Falcons. If he sits, Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin would both be in play against a beatable Falcons secondary.


Injury DeSean Jackson out with thumb injury
Bucs WR will miss third straight game
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 14, 11:50 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#GoBucs coach Dirk Koetter confirms that WR DeSean Jackson and S Justin Evans are out for Sunday's game at Baltimore. It's the third straight game Jackson has missed with a thumb injury. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With DJax out again, Chris Godwin will get the start alongside Mike Evans and Adam Humphries. The Bucs wide receivers have a tough matchup against the Ravens defense that's given up the fourth fewest fantasy points to the position.


Injury DeSean Jackson out for Week 14
Thumb injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 7, 5:53 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
DeSean Jackson, Isaiah Johnson and Justin Evans officially out for the Bucs Sunday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: We expected Jackson to sit and now it's official. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries will all be viable fantasy plays against the Saints. We will need to keep an eye on the weather in Tampa this weekend as rain and 15 MPH winds are currently in the forecast.


Injury DeSean Jackson out with thumb injury
WR Bobo Wilson called up from practice squad
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 30, 11:45 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Source tells me Bobo Wilson is being called up from the Bucs' practice squad. DeSean Jackson is out Sunday with a thumb injury. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jackson was at practice this week but was wearing a cast on his thumb and wasn't catching passes. His absence should mean more opportunities for Adam Humphries and Chris Goodwin who are both in the WR3 conversation in a game against the Panthers with a high total (54.5).


Injury DJax practicing, but not catching passes
Wearing a cast on left hand/thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 29, 12:45 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
WR DeSean Jackson still has a cast on his left hand/thumb and is practicing but not catching passes again today. CB M.J. Stewart (foot), CB Carlton Davis (knee), T Demar Dotson (knee/hamstring) are out. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) and DT Gerald McCoy (knee) are practicing (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It remains to be seen if DJax will play against the Panthers this week. If he sits, that should open up more targets for Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin.
