2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Rusty Reeves

Jackson is Mr. Consistency. He went for over 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons (he missed 11 games in 2010). As the Bucs' lone bright spot on offense last season, Jackson hauled in 78 catches for 1,228 yards and seven touchdowns. There were times when it appeared that Mike Glennon's gameplan was to simply throw it towards V-Jax. A lot of times, that worked. Jackson saw double-digit targets in nine of the team's 16 games, despite facing double-coverage much of the time. This year, the Bucs have given the former Northern Colorado receiver a sidekick in rookie WR Mike Evans (and another weapon in the passing game,TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins). If Jackson and new QB Josh McCown can develop some chemistry, Jackson is a lock to eclipse 1,000 yards yet again (and could reach double-digit TDs for the first time in his career). It's hard to project a WR to be a stud with so many new pieces on offense, which is why we have him as a WR2. There is potential Top 10 upside here.

Editor's note: Jackson has an absurd 306 targets over his two seasons in Tampa Bay. Only Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson and A.J. Green accounted for that many targets over the same span. Considering Jackson posted the numbers he did with Freeman and Glennon at QB, projecting him to somehow perform worse this season doesn't make much sense. He'd have to hit the wall hard.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
3.11 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - The 30 year old enjoyed a career year during his first season in Tampa posting a career-best 72 catches for 1,384 yards and 8 TDs - finished as a top-10 fantasy receiver for the 3rd time in his career.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
3.11 BFD Fantasy - This is the price you pay for two RBs to start a draft in 2013. V-Jax is hardly an ideal #1 FF WR, he's not bad. Just not a model of consistency catching the ball or scoring TDs.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
4.02 World Fantasy Rankings #4 - I was trying to decide between Vjax and McFadden but Bruno Boys made my decision an easy one by taking the RB off the board. I was leaning WR anyway because I already have two workhorse RB's and Vincent Jackson is a true #1 WR. This pick increases my teams explosive upside and locks in a consistent performer in a spot that you can't afford to make a mistake in the draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
3.12 KFFL - Tim - V-Jax isn't very PPRey, but he's a consistent big-play threat that counts for plenty in best-ball formats like this one.
