Minny QB Tarvaris Jackson says he's improved

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson said he has improved more in the past year than in any 12-month period in his career.

As Brett Favre's understudy, Jackson was able to watch and learn from the future hall of famer, which has helped Jackson immensely.

"I feel like I've grown the most this year over the first couple years," Jackson said Sunday after the conclusion of a mandatory minicamp. "I had a lot of experience those first three years. That playing experience helped. Just watching Brett, being more mentally focused because you have to, being a backup through 17, 18 games ... It was a little different, but I think it helped."

Fantasy Impact: 

Favre is a top-10 fantasy QB if he's back this year, but Jackson will have to show it on the field first for him to make an impact on your fantasy team.
