    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston and WR DeSean Jackson have already spent time together this offseason to improve their deep-ball chemistry. Winston said they're going to find more time to work outside the team facility and build their connection.

    Huddle Up: Tampa Bay's offense was relatively disappointing last year. Winston and Jackson's chemistry, or lack thereof, was part of that disappointment. The two can only build on how they performed in 2018. That being said, Winston has QB1 appeal and Jackson, who is primarily a one-trick deep threat, has WR3 to WR4 value.

  • Posted: 4/8/2018 9:16am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson finished with 50 catches for 668 yards and three touchdowns in his first year with the team in 2017. QB Jameis Winston took to social media on Friday, April 6, vowing he 'personally will make sure' to show valuable Jackson is to the team and the NFL in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Jackson saw 90 targets in 14 games last year, which is roughly the amount of volume he has been accustomed to over his long NFL career. The main difference was Jackson's lack of touchdowns and his average yards per catch, which fell from 17.7 to a career-low 13.4. Whether Winston is to blame for inaccuracy, head coach Dirk Koetter failed Jackson with his play-calling or Jackson lost a step is worth debating. At any rate, it appears Jackson could become a bigger part of the offense in 2018.

  • Posted: 4/7/2018 7:25pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston posted on Twitter that he will 'personally' make sure to show how valuable WR DeSean Jackson is to the offense in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Tampa Bay's passing attack never really clicked last year, and Winston and Jackson struggled to connect on big plays. Another year together could help matters, and Jackson still possesses WR3 upside because of his ability to stretch the field.

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 10:57am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson did not see as many opportunities as he should have last season, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. 'That has to change and we're working on concepts right now.'

    Huddle Up: Coach speak is commonplace in the offseason, but Koetter sounds serious about increasing Jackson's involvement. It was his first year with the scallywags, after all. Jackson possesses WR3 upside as a more suitable selection in standard formats.

  • Posted: 2/22/2018 11:24am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson's case involving his vehicle that was allegedly found wrecked will bullets and marijuana is inactive. Tampa police said there were no witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the wreck.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is coming off a down year, but it was a down year for the Buccaneers offense as a whole in 2017. It didn't help that Jackson missed two games. If he can keep himself beyond reproach and stay healthy he has WR2 upside in standard leagues. It's best to draft him as a flex, though.

  • Posted: 2/11/2018 6:51pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said he and QB Jameis Winston need to 'merge' this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Both Jackson and the Tampa Bay offense disappointed last year, but another offseason could help Jackson and Winston get on the same page. Jackson still has enough big-play potential to grab in the later rounds in 2018.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 4:36pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he is considered questionable for Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was limited in practice all week and shouldn't be someone you rely upon in the regular season finale.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 4:14pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was not able to play in Week 16 but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 17. He has been held to under 50 yards in four of his last five games and has two catches or less in three of those games. He could still be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he is active for Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 11:15am ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Chris Godwin will likely draw the start opposite Mike Evans, although it's going to be hard to roll with the rookie during fantasy championship week given his limited track record. Evans and Cameron Brate should vie for Jameis Winston's attention for most of the game.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 7:24am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 22, and he's unlikely to play in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Humphries had a 5-43-1 line last week, and the Carolina Panthers are the worst at defending the WR position the last five weeks. He's a flex option if you're hurting.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 10:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: If Jackson continues to miss practice then Adam Humphries would enter the realm of the sneaky starts. That's not to mention that Mike Evans is already an automatic start. Track Jackson's status over the next couple of days, but be ready to pick up Humphries if necessary.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 6:28pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Jackson suffered the injury in the last game, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He has been inconsistent with his production over the last several weeks and has been held to 25 yards or less in two of the last three games. Owners could consider benching Jackson this week if they have better options.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 11:01pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught his only target for 11 yards and also had seven rushing yards on one attempt before leaving due to injury in the team's Week 15 loss Monday, Dec. 18, against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Jackson simply wasn't able to get anything going before exiting in the second half, which is pretty surprising considering his quarterback had arguably his best game of the year. If Jackson has to miss any additional time, Adam Humphries may be someone to consider riding, especially after he finally logged his first touchdown of the campaign in this one.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 7:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) had to leave the game Monday, Dec. 18, versus the Atlanta Falcons. He's considered doubtful to return to the contest.

    Huddle Up: It's been a rough night for the Bucs, who have simply been piling up the injuries in this one. Jackson was having a weak showing anyway before going down with injury, totaling a miniscule 18 total yards (11 receiving, seven rushing). With him sidelined, Mike Evans and Adam Humphries should see additional looks the rest of the way.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 6:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson ended up with four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets and he added a 23-yard rush.

    Huddle Up: Jackson has posted two or more receptions in each of his 13 games so far this season, regardless of the quarterback. While his yardage totals haven't been great, he remains a decent WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 4:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson posted two catches for 24 yards on three targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was listed as questionable this week due to a foot injury, but he fell just short and was unable to haul in a touchdown in the back of the end zone. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues in Week 14 and beyond.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 8:55am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is active for Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated on a limited basis in the team's final two practice sessions of the week. He has a favorable matchup this afternoon against a shaky Green Bay secondary and is worth considering as a WR3 or flex option.

  • Posted: 12/2/2017 9:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jackson draws a favorable matchup against a shaky Green Bay secondary, so it is a little easier to roll him out there as a boom-or-bust WR3.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 2:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Jackson appears to be on track to play in Week 13, but owners will know about his status later in the week. He has been inconsistent in terms of his receiving yards over the last few weeks but should have Jameis Winston back this week. He should have a favorable matchup this week and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 2:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) was unable to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, due to his foot injury.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was able to haul in a season-best eight catches in Week 12, and he has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the past three games. When healthy he is a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:28pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught eight passes for 60 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jackson's eight catches were a season high and has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the last three games. He should have a solid role in the passing game against the Green Bay Packers next week and can be a No. 3 receiver.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson posted two receptions for 28 yards on a touchdown in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total wasn't huge, but the touchdown was certainly nice. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 12 against the Falcons on the road.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:01pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson finished with two receptions and 25 yards on four targets in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jackson also ran once for eight yards, but the yardage total was his second-lowest of the season. He has just one 100-yard game and only two visits to the end zone through eight games. Jackson remains more of a WR4 or flex plays in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Jets.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson hauled in three balls for 37 yards on eight targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is a secondary option in the Tampa Bay pass game, although he does have one 100-yard game to none for Mike Evans. Still, he should be treated more as a WR4 or flex option heading into Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 9:11pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught five passes for 106 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the New England Patriots. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: D-Jax led or tied for the team lead in receptions, yardage and targets, and it was his first triple-digit performance since joining the Bucs. He has always been a 'feast or famine' fantasy option, and that figures to continue moving forward.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:35pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 84 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jackson has been targeted seven times in each of the first two games and will continue to be a big part of the passing game because of his deep-threat potential. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in all leagues next week.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 2:12pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 39 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is expected to be a deep threat for the Bucs this season but was held in check this week. He may only be a flex option in Week 3 since he will be facing the Minnesota Vikings.
