Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Corrals 18-yard reception in exhibition opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson secured his only target for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason win over the Dolphins on Thursday.

Jackson jumpstarted the offense by making his one grab on the team's first play from scrimmage. While he didn't see another target from Ryan Fitzpatrick during their two series on the field, Jackson has often displayed impressive chemistry with the veteran quarterback in camp. The veteran speedster has also been logging some reps at punt returner in practice and is even listed as second at the position on the initial version of the depth chart, but he didn't see any time in that capacity Thursday. Jackson will look to continue sharpening his game for the regular season when the Bucs face the Titans in their second exhibition game a week from Saturday.

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Seeing some punt returner reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson received reps as the second-string punt returner behind Adam Humphries during Thursday's practice, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Jackson enjoyed success as a punt returner early in his career with the Eagles, but he hasn't served in that capacity since the 2015 season in Washington. While the Bucs will likely be wary of exposing as important an offensive piece as Jackson too much in the return game, a few chances against short fields certainly wouldn't be out of the question. Jackson has enjoyed a strong start to camp as a pass catcher as well, displaying good chemistry with both Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick on a diverse array of routes in early practices.

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Effective at varying depths of target early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has impressed through the first several training camp practices by making catches all over the field, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Jackson has primarily made his NFL bones streaking past defenders, but he's been much more than a one-trick pony in the early stages of camp. The veteran has generated a high catch rate over the first three practices overall, including on short- and medium-range throws. That was particularly on display Saturday, when Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with Jackson on several slants. Naturally, Jackson has run his share of deep routes as well, with Vitali reporting that he hauled in a pretty 60-yard bomb from Fitzpatrick in Friday's session, and Jenna Laine of noting that Jackson connected with Jameis Winston for a long touchdown down the sideline in Sunday's session.

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Likely without Winston for first three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is slated to catch passes from backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for the first three games of the 2018 regular season in the wake of Jameis Winston's expected suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, Jenna Laine of reports.

Jackson actually displayed solid rapport with Fitzpatrick over the four-plus games in which the latter saw action last season. The 31-year-old pass catcher hauled in two of his three touchdowns on the season from the veteran backup and posted 19 grabs on 30 targets overall during the four contests that Fitzpatrick started. Jackson is looking to improve on a lackluster first season in Tampa, during which he posted career lows in YPC (13.4), YPT (7.3) and receiving yards per game (47.7), and as such, has been making appearances in OTAs this offseason in an effort to improve his chemistry with Winston. However, barring a last-minute development, it appears Jackson will have to wait until at least Week 4 of the regular season before he can start to see that work pay dividends.

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Makes appearance at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was present for the start of OTAs last week, Jenna Laine of reports.

Jackson is known for training the majority of the offseason in his native California, where he typically engages in a program focused on speed. However, he was present and accounted for at the first day of OTAs last week as part of his ongoing effort to build additional chemistry with Jameis Winston. Despite his presence last week, Jackson is not expected to attend every voluntary offseason practice, as he's also trying to keep up with his normal offseason regimen as much as possible.
