2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Vincent Jackson goes from the high flying San Diego offense to the more balanced Tampa Bay attack, but Josh Freeman has a much bigger arm than Rivers

(+) Vincent Jackson has elite size for the position at 6’5” 230 pounds 

(+) The San Diego offense had multiple targets of elite caliber, moving to Tampa Bay should increase his overall targets making him more consistent 

(+) V-Jax is a high upside guy who scored 20 or more points in three games last season

(-) V-Jax can have some low lows, his lowest output of the season last year was 1.5 fantasy points in week 7 last year

(-) Struggled against the better pass defenses in the league last season and seems to have trouble separating from elite pass defenders

(-) Even though his size would indicate he is a great red zone target his average touchdown distance was 24.25 yards last season

2009 Review

Some people like to call him “Wild Child” (a nickname he’s certainly lived up to off the field), but we’d rather call him by his childhood nickname; Frisbee.  This monstrous, whirling dervish of a receiver improved upon his previous year’s stats yet again in 2009, and there doesn’t seem to be a ceiling for this 6’5” Charger.  He established himself as one of the most dependable wideouts in the game this past year, as he caught just about everything tossed even close to him.  His hands are like leather magnets out there, and there’s really nothing the 27-year old Jackson can’t do.  He proved to be an imposing red-zone threat, yet has no problem going down the seam on a fly pattern with the best of them.  He could go over the middle on a crossing pattern, yet can tiptoe the sidelines as well.  2009 was a breakout year for the Big Frisbee, and we don’t expect him to land anytime soon.

~ Ranked tenth in the league with 171.8 WR fantasy points (basic scoring system)

~ Tied for seventh in the league with 9 receiving touchdowns

~ Tied for ninth in the league with 1,167 receiving yards

~ Tied for eighth in the league with 77.8 receiving yards per game

~ Tied for 30th in the league with 68 receptions

~ Tied for 34th in the league with 106 targets

~ Ranked tenth in the league with 17 receptions of 20+ yards

~ Tied for twelfth in the league with 58 catches for first downs

~ Ranked 89th in the league with 180 yards after the catch (YAC)

~ Set career bests in receptions (68), receiving yards (1,167), receiving TDs (9), yards/game (77.8), and yards from scrimmage (1,178)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

With Philip Rivers signing a fat seven-year contract at the beginning of the ’09 season, all that’s left to do to ensure years of greatness in San Diego is for the Chargers to lock up Jackson with a multi-year deal… and they will… eventually. That's the key word, eventually. There is a very real possibility that Jackson's holdout stretches into the regular season. That and his possible suspension from a few DUI charges have his stock dropping faster than the Tower of Terror. If Jackson somehow is on the field for at least 14 games, he can expect more targets as the recent departure of future Hall-of-Famer LaDainian Tomlinson suggests the Chargers have been moving more towards a pass-happy offense.  If Vincent can see one or two more targets per game within that offense, which we believe he will, he immediately becomes a #1 WR on fantasy teams in 2010 as he was on the cusp of it already despite a serious lack of looks in 2009.

~ With the lack of a proven running back, Vincent might draw more double-teams

~ Malcom Floyd has the tools to be a worthy complimentary receiver, but it’s not a definite that he shows it

~ Jackson’s steadfast holdout concerning his contract could be a major distraction at the beginning of the year

~ There will likely be a suspension on the horizon for the Big Frisbee due to the two DUIs he’s racked up over the years

Rivers Spreads the Field

The only thing keeping Jackson from joining the likes of Moss, Fitzgerald and Johnson as an elite receiver is targets.  Rivers likes to scan the field rather than locking in on one target, a trait that has prohibited many other receivers from reaching elite status.  Other than Antonio Gates, VJax is as close to royalty in San Diego as they've had in a receiving target in a long time.  However, he only saw 5 more targets in 2009 than he did in 2008, and at just 7.1 looks/game, there's no way to climb up over that elite hump.  With LT21 gone, that could change for Jackson, if he doesn't let his contract situation and 3-game suspension impede on his progress.

VJax is a restricted free agent and was extended a first- and third-round tender from the Chargers.  There’s no doubt San Diego will make a move to keep Jackson in the fold for years to come, it’s just a matter of when...

Malcom Floyd might be the handcuff to VJax right now, but he could develop into a viable fantasy option on his own this year.  Keep a close eye on Legedu Naanee as an alternate option here.

Injury Report


V-Jax hasn't had any major injuries over the past few years and is good to go for 2010

No Jackson Means Targets for Evans


Pyro's take: Vincent JAckson has been ruled out for Week 16. So, Mike Evans will be in store for another big game. In full games without Jackson, Evans has thrived.In fact, Evans averages 14.5 targets per game when Jackson does not play. In those games, Evans averages over 121 receiving yards.

12/27/15, 07:34 AM CST by PyromaniacMo

Vincent Jackson (knee) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice.


Pyro's take: Vincent Jackson hasnt practiced since spraining his MCL against the Saints in week 14. With the Buccs already eliminated from the playoffs, it will be doubtful he will play again this season. Look for Mike Evans to have another monster game.

Vincent Jackson will miss "several games" with a sprained MCL.


Pyro's take: Ian Rapoport via Twitter "#Bucs WR Vincent Jackson suffered an MCL sprain, per source. He'll miss several games. His availability depends on when 2015 ends #playoffs"

Vincent Jackson (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.


Pyro's take: Vincent Jackson will be ready to go at it against the Saints, and should put up some decent numbers against that sieve of a defense.

VJacks Tied for 1st w/ Most Reds Zone Targets after 2 Weeks

Vincent Jackson has 6 red zone targets

Pyro's take: Vincent Jackson has 6 red zone targets after 2 weeks. This puts him tied for first with Nuke. Heading into week 3 he should be matched up against Johnathan Joseph. PFF has Joseph rated at the bottom for CBs in coverage. Only 3 guys have a worse rating out of 97.

V-Jackson Should Have Good Game vs. Banged Up Saints Secondary

Good Game week 2 VJAcks

Pyro's take: The Saints will be with out two of their Safetys in week 2. Thus they will be vulnerable to the pass, which is exactly what Tampa will need to do to stay in this game. V JAckson could surprise a few folks this week.

Not Practicing

Roy Cummings, Tampa Bay Buccs beat writer, announced that Vincent Jackson was not at practice today. "Among those not practicing for the Bucs today were WR V. Jackson and LBs D. Lansanah and J. Casillas."

Pyro's take: Jackson has been rumored to be in trade talks lately, even though Lovie Smith denied any of those reports, and stated that he was not looking to trade Vincent Jackson. On the season he has 25 receptions for 344 yards and two touchdowns, not really an all-star stat line.

Jackson playing for the fans

"You want to finish strong every time you play at home, or even on the road," said wide receiver Vincent Jackson. "Every game’s important, but we want to leave a good taste in the mouth for our fans – go out there, play hard, put up a great effort and performance and hopefully come out with a win.”

Jackson will almost certainly suit up for Sunday's home finale despite missing most of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He has been managing a hamstring injury for weeks but was able to play through it last Sunday and catch three passes for 70 yards and a score against Buffalo. Jackson's status is a little more clear heading into the weekend this time around, however, as he is expected to be listed as probable instead of questionable on the official injury report.

Pyro's take: VJAX is going to play this week, and he is a true gamer, but he is going to be limited by the hamstring. If he were 100% healthy it would still be a tough match-up against the 49ers.

Jackson was targeted eight times last week, so now that he is feeling better he should see double digit targets. Just don't expect him to have one of his monster games in this one.

Jackson will be a gametime decision

The status of Bucs WR Vincent Jackson, whose 963 receiving yards are more than double any teammate, for Sunday's game against Buffalo remains in question after he was again limited in practice by a hamstring injury Friday.

Coach Greg Schiano said he was "optimistic, cautiously" about Jackson, saying the decision will likely come from the veteran Sunday.

"He knows his body. He knows if he can do it or not," Schiano said. "And he desperately wants to help us win."

Jackson declined to comment.

Jackson, who is listed as questionable, also leads the team with 61 catches and five touchdown catches.

Schiano said Jackson's familiarity with the offense allows him to play with less practice: "A guy like Vincent can because he has so many cumulative reps, and he works so hard when he is out there."

Pyro's take: Jackson is a must start if he plays this week against the Bills. It is never good news when a player is dealing with a hamstring injury, but it is better news that this game is in Tampa instead of Buffalo. The other piece of good news is that this is an early game on Sunday, so you will not have to wait to make your decision.

Vincent Jackson is questionable for Sunday

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams has a hamstring injury that limited him in practice on Friday and makes him questionable for Sunday's Week 4 clash against the Arizona Cardinals.

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal reported on the matter, noting that fellow Bucs wideout Vincent Jackson is also questionable

Pyro's take: Both Williams and Vincent Jackson have not been able to practice all week with their new rookie starting quarterback. It would appear that we will not know the fate of these wide receivers until Sunday morning. If only one of them is able to play, you can bet he will see a hefty amount of targets from Mike Glennon.

Vincent Jackson is day to day with a rib injury

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is day to day with a rib injury that is not considered serious, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Jackson left Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots in the third quarter and did not return.

Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said Monday that he is uncertain if Jackson will be available to play next weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.

Pyro's take: Vincent Jackson has not been having a great season, but don't blame him. Josh Freeman is the one who is really having a bad season and soon might find himself holding a clipboard in Tampa. VJax sees a ridiculous amount of targets from Freeman, 30 in 3 games, but he had 24 through the first 2 weeks.

There are no other real threats in the passing game for the Buccaneers, so they really need Jackson to be back this week, and if he plays you got to start him.

Pro Bowl: Wayne replaced by Vincent Jackson

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne has a prior engagement (practice for the Super Bowl) and won't be able to play in this year's Pro Bowl on Sunday. He will be replaced on the roster by Chargers WR Vincent Jackson.

Pyro's take: This was an obvious choice. Jackson had a downright sick year in helping to lead San Diego to a 13-3 record and a fourth straight AFC West crown. On the season, VJax surpassed his career highs in receptions (68), receiving yards (1,167), and touchdowns (9).

VJax goes for 111 yards, none against Revis

Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught 7 balls on 9 targets for 111 yards against the Jets on Sunday afternoon, though not one of them came against runner-up defensive player of the year, Darrelle Revis.

Pyro's take: It was said that Revis would be shadowing the Bolts big VJ the whole game, but that didn't turn out to be the case. Our guess is that Rex Ryan used the media to create a little bit of misdirection in the San Diego game plan, and shocker, it worked! Oh Norv, your true colors have shown through once again.

Vincent Jackson feeling much improved today

Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (Achilles) ran at practice on Wednesday without any restrictions and had this to say when asked about his ailing Achilles:
“Definitely an improvement,” Jackson said. “I’m feeling good this week. I’m going to continue to work to being as close to 100 percent as possible on Sunday.”

Pyro's take: The Chargers are going to need him to be at 110 percent if he's going to be effective against Jets CB Darrelle Revis. His size will definitely help, but don't expect much out of him with with the human Body Bag guarding him on Sunday.

Revis will be covering Vincent Jackson

The Jets will be traveling to the left coast this Sunday and be putting their shutdown corner, Darrelle Revis, on Vincent Jackson according to the New York Daily News.

Pyro's take: Duh. We're only posting this to let you know that Malcom Floyd is a better start than Vincent Jackson if you are doing a playoff league. The Jets also plan to put dedicate extra help to shutting down Gates with S Kerry Rhodes. This game has a ton of intrigue.

Vincent Jackson will play on Sunday

Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) practiced in full again on Friday and is being listed as questionable on the team's Week 12 injury report. He is expected to start as usual on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Get the big receiver in your fantasy football lineup immediately as he'll likely be putting up some nice WR1 numbers this week against a porous Chiefs pass D.

Vincent Jackson returns to practice

Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

Pyro's take: VJ missed practice on Wednesday to make sure he could be at full speed this weekend. He's fine, and as usual, is a must-start on your fantasy football squad this weekend.

Vincent Jackson returns to practice Monday

San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Jackson returned to practice Monday with his left hand taped after missing Saturday's preseason game.

Pyro's take: Vincent sprained his left middle finger last Wednesday in practice, but taped it up and went through practice with the team as normal on Monday. He should be fine and can be kept up on your WR chart as a good WR2 with potential for higher ROI.
