Vincent Jackson solidified his stance as San Diego's main passing threat on the flanks with a 2008 season in which he netted more than 1,000 yards and scored seven touchdowns.
At 6'5", Jackson towers over most cornerbacks, and he became a favorite target of QB Philip Rivers last season.
He consistently grabbed big gains, ending the season with an 18.6 yards per reception average.
He also ran the ball effectively, turning four reverse plays into 69 yards on the ground, for an average of 17.3 yards per carry.
Pros: Jackson's size (6'5", 230) makes his speed deceptive, as he is equally likely to fly down the sideline or go over the middle to make a catch. He has excellent hands and rarely drops a pass.
Jackson has the ability to make circus-like catches with ease, turning overthrown or underthrown passes into first downs or touchdowns. He's not averse to contact, and he's been excellent in the playoffs.
Cons: Not the best route-runner, he loses effectiveness when Antonio Gates is out of the ballgame. He struggles as more pressure is focused on him, and he's had trouble with shutdown corners.
2009 Season Outlook: It's likely that Jackson won't get more than 70-75 catches as Philip Rivers likes to spread the ball around his offense, but Jackson is always a consistent threat to catch the long ball and make tough grabs over the middle of the field.
Ideally, expect eight to 10 TDs and 1,000 yards from him. Makes for an excellent sleeper fantasy pick.
