Fantasy Football Profile: Vincent Jackson
Vincent Jackson was supposed to breakout in 2007. He did OK with 41 catches for 623 yards and 3 TDs. Not exactly breakout numbers though. Last year he stepped up his production though with 59 grabs for 1098 yards and 7 TDs. He’s not the most consistent threat with five games with under six points in standard fantasy scoring, but he can string together a solid stretch as evidenced by his six TDs in nine weeks (Week 6-15). Plus, he finished strong with averages of 98.75 yards and 0.5 TDs in the last four games.
Jackson should continue to develop into one of the game’s best playmakers. I can see him more involved in the offense as he and Rivers have formed a nice connection. I’m expecting 70 catches for 1150 yards and 8 TDs, making him a solid WR2. He should be around the 15th-20th WR taken in the 4th-6th round.
