Found June 12, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
The Buccaneers have two talented starting wide receivers in Vincent Jackson, one of their big offseason acquisitions, as well as Mike Williams, who had a big season in 2010. However, it was slot receiver Preston Parker who was singled out by quarterback Josh Freeman as someone he was excited about for this coming season. Parker caught 40 passes for 554 yards and 3 touchdowns as a slot receiver in 2011 and, with Kellen Winslow gone, Parker could see more targets over the middle this season. With Josh Freeman likely to have a bounce back season, Parker could easily improve on his 2011 production, but still probably won’t have much value in fantasy leagues.
