2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Reinforcing the depth at the receiver position was finally given the attention it demanded after 2016 saw a revolving door of flawed options lining up opposite Mike Evans. Four receivers not named Evans played over 20-percent of the offensive snaps a year ago but only one saw the field on at least half of the team's plays. Inserting Jackson into the mix will allow Dirk Koetter to utilize more of the field and improve his quarterback's passing efficiency in the process. Jackson will turn 31 in December and hasn't caught more than 56 balls since 2013 but he isn't going to be asked to lead the way. He slides into a very comfy secondary role opposite one of the NFL's elite playmakers and should be able to use his burst and route running to make the passing game more dynamic. If Jackson can acclimate himself to the offense, he will be a useful flex option for fantasy owners this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Mike Evans suspended one game
Cheap shot on Marshon Lattimore
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 6, 4:13 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was suspended one game on Monday for violating the NFL's policy on unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness. Evans hit New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in the back Sunday during a confrontation started by Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay's 30-10 loss (USA Today)

FFToday's Take: Evans blasted Lattimore from behind after Lattimore and Evans will having a "conversation". Evans should have been kicked out of the game but instead, he will miss a Week 10 matchup with the Jets. Cameron Brate and DeSean Jackson should receive more looks with Evans out. Expect Evans to appeal.


DeSean Jackson off to slow start
Only nine receptions through three games
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 4, 8:00 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Three games into his Tampa Bay Buccaneers career, DeSean Jackson has just nine catches. DeSean being DeSean, those nine catches have gained 143 yards, but he hasn't had quite the impact he and the Bucs might have hoped when they arranged this marriage back in March. He's averaging career-lows in both catch rate and receiving yards per game, after all. "I think I've just got to get on track with him," Winston said, per the team's official website. "I have to play better in all respects. He's been doing what he does - he's been open a lot." (CBSSports.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bucs passing attack suddenly has more depth than recent memory. It's not a surprise to see Jameis Winston favor Mike Evans but he has had more success finding Adam Humphries (14 receptions on 20 targets) than Desean Jackson (9 receptions on 20 targets). Until Winston gains more confidence throwing the deep ball, Jackson's owners will struggle with inconsistent fantasy production.
