Chargers WR Vincent Jackson pleaded guilty to DUI this morning and will face at least 96 hours of jail time.  He'll also be on probation for the next 5 years, and be required to attend a drunk driving class.  Jackson's actions have the potential to get him suspended for 1-2 games, and possibly more.  His fantasy status will depend on how warden Goodell chooses to punish the Bolts most important offensive threat.  Stay tuned.
Update: Jackson won't face jail time.  A suspension is still likely.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury.  He says that he'll play this Sunday against the Chiefs, but we'd feel better if he at least practiced on Friday.  We're keeping his Week 12 projections where they are for now.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's workout.  Jackson had x-rays on his ribs, but they came back negative.  He's a must-start this week against the Chiefs.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson has appealed a judge's ruling in his DUI case. This will push the trial back until after the conclusion of the '09 season, meaning Jackson won't face discipline fro the NFL this year.  If convicted, he was likely looking at a 1-2 game ban. Go ahead and grab the contract-year player as your WR2.

Channel 10 News in San Diego reports on its website: "Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence... According to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, Jackson was arrested by the California Highway Patrol early Tuesday morning at Highway 52 and Interstate 805." The NFL probably won't get around to suspending him this week for the playoff game at Pittsburgh, but Norv Turner could possibly deactivate him. Stay tuned.

Vincent Jackson had 26 receiving yards in the first 58:49 vs. the Chiefs until he hauled in a 42-yard reception and a 10-yard TD in a furious rally. Jackson now has 50 catches for 940 yards & 7 TDs on the season, good for the 12th to 17th ranking in most fantasy leagues. A breakout season in his 4th year. He's Philip Rivers' favorite target. Jackson could be in for 8-10 targets at Tampa Bay in week 16. Chris Chambers (head/neck) is beat up and Malcolm Floyd was hospitalized Monday with a collapsed lung.

The Union Tribune reports WR Vincent Jackson sustained a mild concussion near the end of the game last week at KC. He should be OK but we'll look for more news. Malcolm Floyd (collapsed lung) and Chris Chambers (head/neck) might not be available this Sunday at Tampa so they need Jackson desperately.

WR Vincent Jackson (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday. Chris Chambers is not on the injury list. Malcolm Floyd (lung) is out.

Chris Chambers says his injured ankle is "not too serious." Chambers was limping to the team bus in Miami but didn't need crutches. "I'm sure I've had this type of thing before."  If Chambers does miss week 6 vs. New England then Vincent Jackson would be a must-start.

Chris Chambers (ankle) did not dress out for Wednesday's practice. He told reporters Monday that his sprain was "no big deal" but he's likely out. He's a sprint-and-cut guy who needs his wheels. We have high hopes for Vincent Jackson vs. the Patriots. Click the "MVP Weekly Report" tab above for the Weekly Rankings.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) slipped Thursday afternoon and missed the team drills session. We will adjust his ranking Saturday if we don’t hear some kind of good news. With Chris Chambers (ankle) out, Craig "Buster" Davis might be a decent plug-in. reports WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is listed as probable. He's going to start. Whatever happened on Thursday when he slipped, we don't wanna know. For more fantasy injury news see your inbox for the comprehensive Friday Injury Recap or just click on Articles/Email Archive.

Vincent Jackson caught 3 balls for 84 yards in the Chargers' preseason game on Monday night. His hamstring worries are gone.  

Michael Lombardo of reports Chargers GM A.J. Smith might be shopping WR Vincent Jackson around. Lombardo speculates that Jackson could fetch a 2nd-round pick in the 2009 draft. "Teams such as the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans, Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings would all be expected entrants in the bidding for the 6-foot-5, 241-pound receiver." We're not sure where Lombardo got this information but he's well connected in San Diego and does good work for The logic in trading Jackson is the logjam at wide receiver with Chris Chambers, Craig "Buster" Davis, Eric Parker and super-sleeper Legedu Naanee.  Plus Jackson's value is peaking after his stellar play in the 2007 postseason.  We'll see if a major outlet picks up this rumor.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson (abdomen) was limited Thursday. He lost his fantasy value weeks ago when Chris Chambers was signed to be the #1 WR.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson drops from #23 to #48 on the Rest Of Way list (just updated early Tuesday night) following the acquisition of Chris Chambers. The Chargers have a bye so Chambers has plenty of time to absorb the basics in Norv Turner's offense.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson caught 3 passes for 84 yards & 1 TD in the 41-3 rout of the Broncos. However, Norv Turner told reporters that Jackson injured his right shoulder during the game and "will need to get checked out" on Monday. Hopefully Jackson is OK because his ascension to fantasy importance has been steady and true.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson was limited Thursday due to a sore back. If it's anything serious we'll know later today.

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson played with 12 stitches in his hand last Friday vs. Seattle. His hand was shot up numb with novocaine and his thumb was taped to his big finger. Tough guy, but sheesh... It's just preseason. Be careful.

Steve Silverman of names Chargers WR Vincent Jackson as one if his "10 Players Who Must Impress in Training Camp"... Silverman writes: "The Chargers receiver became a factor last season when he caught 27 passes for 453 yards and 6 touchdowns, but new coach Norv Turner will expect quite a bit more based on his December production when he caught 14 passes for 236 yards and 3 TDs. Jackson has the size and strength at 6-5 and 241 pounds to become a dominant player for a team that desperately needs a go-to wideout." We're relatively high on Jackson, ranking him #37 on our WR board. That makes him a WR3 consideration in 12-team leagues, though we suspect he could either shoot up to a handy WR2 or just simply disappear altogether.
