Buccaneers WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. If Shorts can get healthy, there’s a chance he can win the WR2 job in Tampa, but for now we expect Adam Humphries will benefit most from the absence of Vincent Jackson.

Bucs place WR Vincent Jackson on IR

Tampa Bay placed wide receiver Vincent Jackson on injured reserve on Tuesday after the veteran suffered an ACL injury in the Bucs' win over Carolina in Week 5.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Jackson played through an ACL injury, but received no medical attention. Rapoport adds that Jackson realized following the game that it didn't feel right. Jackson finished that game with three catches for 36 yards and will finish his fifth season in Tampa with 15 receptions for 173 yards.

Fantasy Impact:

Tampa is already without Doug Martin and Charles Sims at RB and Cecil Shorts at WR. Louis Murphy is back at practice and could eventually help. As the story said, Jackson was only Winston's fourth-favorite target at this point in the season.

Koetter: WR Vincent Jackson isn't 'anywhere close to being done'

Rick Stroud - [Full Article]

Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter says he feels good about his receiving corps and is not of the belief Vincent Jackson "is anywhere close to being done."

Fantasy Impact:

Jackson struggled with a knee injury in 2015, but produced as a fringe fantasy WR2 (3.9-66-0.38) in the eight games that he was able to finish. Ageism is real in fantasy football, and given his 11th-round ADP, owners are already writing him off in early drafts. If his knee looks healthy this offseason then he'll be a nice value later on in the draft.

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. With Jackson out, Mike Evans will continue to be a target monster in a nice matchup with the Bears.

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Jackson may continue to sit since there isn’t much upside in his returning in what has become a lost season for the Buccaneers. If he remains out, Mike Evans would continue to be a target monster in a nice matchup with the Bears.

Buccaneers Inactives

QB Ryan Griffin
LB Bruce Carter
T Demar Dotson
TE Brandon Myers
WR Vincent Jackson
DE George Johnson
DT Akeem Spence

Fantasy Impact:

With Jackson out, Mike Evans should see a ton of targets against the Rams. In the three games that V-Jax missed this year, Evans averaged 13.7 targets (for 6.3 catches and 110 yards). Evans averaged 8.6 targets in eight games with Jackson in the lineup. The Rams did contain Calvin Johnson last week, so a big game for Evans isn't a sure thing. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is also more appealing as a streaming option.

Vincent Jackson has sprained MCL

Monday, December 14, 2015, 7:02pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Buccaneers’ shot at earning a playoff berth was dealt a nearly fatal blow in Sunday’s loss to the Saints and any attempt at a last-second resurrection looks like it will have to go on without the help of wide receiver Vincent Jackson.

Jackson left the loss to New Orleans with a knee injury and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Jackson has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. Per the report, Jackson is expected to miss several weeks and that would seem to be make it unlikely that he’ll play again this season unless a lot of things break Tampa’s way over the final three games.

Fantasy Impact:

Jackson missed three games earlier this season with a knee injury, leading the Buccaneers to throw the ball to Mike Evans quite often, the story said. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is back in the lineup now, but it’s probably still a good bet that Evans will be a frequent target of Jameis Winston’s passes the story concluded.
