Vincent Jackson feeling no signs of age

ESPN - [Full Article]

As he spoke to the media for the first time this training camp Sunday, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was asked if he’s seen any signs that his age is catching up to him.

“Absolutely not," said Jackson, 32. “I feel as good as I did six or seven years ago. It’s a blessing. I’ve been healthy and lucky. But, at the same time, I put in a lot of work as well."

Jackson said he feels invigorated, and there are two reasons for that. One is the arrival of rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. The other is the presence of new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.

“I’m loving it," Jackson said. “The offensive system we’ve got in, it’s just been so balanced. We’re running the ball better already than we did last year. It’s fun."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson is coming off a 1,000-yard receiving season, but he sounds like he expects this year to be even better, the story said. Jackson slips a bit in our fantasy rankings this year though, thanks to teammate Mike Evans. Jackson is still ranked 29th on our list and is a potential late sixth round addition. Winston should provide more stability at the QB position even with the expected growing pains.
