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
With Jackson signing in Tampa Bay prior to the 2012 season fantasy owners doubted his ability to produce at an elite level. Boy, were we wrong. Jackson set career highs in receptions with 72 and receiving yards with 1,384. A lot of the thanks should go to stud-rookie running back, Doug Martin. Martin was better than advertised and forced defenses to respect the run opening things up for Jackson and it showed in the splits as Jackson caught 26 passes for 465 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of games while hauling in 45 passes for 915 yards and five touchdowns in the second half of games.

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.
