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

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.
