Long Term Value Of Tarvaris Jackson???

I'd rather have Tarvaris Jackson in keepers --assuming you can wait for him. In 2 years he'll have more value than Rex...maybe sooner.

jackson could be a good pick up. i didnt follow him in college but i did catch the last couple preseason games this year. he looked like a solid playmaker. throwing the ball down field and running the ball as well. i do admit this it is a small sample size but i was impressed.

i seem to remember him getting popped in the head on a long run that may have cut his preseason exhibition short.

I tend to think Jackson will be very good in a couple of years if he gets a chance to hsow his stuff. I saw him play in the preseason game, and he looked amazing. He has incredible talent and good potential... so it's only a matter of time.

I would wait though... I don't think you need to grab him quite yet.

If your roster is deep enough so that all starting QBs are owned, I would add him now if it meant giving up a backup RB with limited upside you don't need (Sammy Morris, Michael Bennett, Correll Buckhalter) or a WR who isn't helping you (Drew Carter, Travis Taylor, Keenan McCardell) or a 2nd kicker or DST. There's often a couple owners sitting and waiting for players like him, and then pounce when it looks like he becomes the starter. For example, in a ten teamer with QB roster limits, at least 3 owners put in a claim for Jason Campbell just before his first start. Tavaris might even start this year, if the Vikes are out of it, so I'd pull the trigger if you've got some fat to trim.

But you're still talking about a rookie QB who has an undetermined start date in a run-first offense with no receivers who can catch. You have another year or so before you have to start worrying about if someone else is going to scoop him.
