Strength of Schedule
Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Big-play threat Jackson has quickly developed some solid chemistry with new Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh McCown. However, you should consider Jackson a weak play as a No. 2 fantasy receiver against a Carolina defense that allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to the receiver position last season.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 71 Yards, 0 TD.

Vincent Jackson set a career high in receptions as the Buccaneers transitioned from Josh Freeman to rookie Mike Glennon last year. New coach Lovie Smith added quarterback Josh McCown which will give the offense the stability it was missing. The healthy return of Doug Martin should open things up for Jackson and make life a lot easier for McCown. While the Bucs added stud-to-be Mike Evans in the NFL draft, we don't see him affecting Jackson's numbers as a rookie this season. So look for Jackson to once again be the main cog in the Tampa passing attack.

Receiving: 70 Receptions, 1120 Yards, 8 TD.

Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 9
Positives
Simply put - contract year. There can be no greater motivation. There are always discussions about the 26/27 year old player finally 'getting it' and having a break out year, Jackson fits into that category as well. I believe that his 1098 yards of last year can be improved upon. Though Jackson isn't quite a 'fantasy household' name, look for that to change in 2009.
Negatives
I never like hearing about players getting into trouble with the law, but I don't think his off-season incident will have an adverse affect on his 2009 fantasy numbers. On a team with Tomlinson and Gates, touchdowns are always a bit difficult to come by so Jackson will have to do his fantasy scoring in terms of catches and yards.
Draft Strategy
I like coming out of the first four rounds with 2 RBs and 2 WRs. There were plenty of other WRs to consider here, including Ochocinco, Roy Williams, Braylon Edwards, DeSean Jackson, etc. Though many have these guys slightly ahead of Jackson, I'm see a big year in Jackson's future as he looks to cash in on a big contract for 2010.
