Vincent Jackson owners finally got the performance that they were waiting for on Sunday against the Saints. Jackson caught 8 of his 12 targets for 144 yards and was Mike Glennon’s go-to target in the passing game. Fantasy owners should expect Jackson to continue to put up WR2 numbers as long as Glennon is at the helm.
Speaking of Glennon, the second-year signal caller threw for 249 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on the road against the Saints. He’s not much of a fantasy quarterback, as the position is chocked full of high-scoring passers, but he’s a must own in two quarterback league formats. Glennon has been very solid since taking over for Josh McCown, who is battling a thumb injury.
Anybody who was gutsy enough to start Louis Murphy last week ending up getting 35 yards and touchdown from the veteran receiver. He was targeted a healthy seven times but only hauled in three of those passes. Murphy isn’t much of a fantasy asset.
Rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins dropped his first two targets of the game and ended up with just one catch for 11 yards. With that being said, he played 61-of-64 snaps and still is brimming with upside from a fantasy perspective. He’s a great dynasty prospect and has some upside as a bench tight end in redraft leagues.
The Buccaneers had 37 points scored on them against New Orleans but they picked off Drew Brees three times and returned one for a touchdown. Over the past three weeks, the Tampa Bay defense has scored 26 fantasy points. There are worse fantasy options than the Buccaneers as far as defenses are concerned.
