Fantasy Analysis
Week 11 Projections
SATURDAY UPDATE: Even though Jackson (knee) practiced Thursday and Friday, he's considered a game-time decision. The Buccaneers are very conservative with injuries, so Jackson's chances of playing don't look promising. If he does suit up, the rusty Jackson is a risky start despite a plus matchup against a Philadelphia Eagles defense that gave up the seventh-most fantasy points to the receiver position during the last month.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 50 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Jackson has racked up 1,000 or more receiving yards in six of the last seven seasons. That's the good news. The bad news, he was only able to find the end zone twice in 2015. That's his lowest TD total since failing to hit pay dirt in his rookie season in 2005. Despite being targeted 19 more times than Mike Evans, it's very clear after last season that Jackson is now the No. 2 wide receiver in Tampa.

Receiving: 70 Receptions, 1120 Yards, 8 TD.

Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 9
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.
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.
