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.
