From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): It's fair to wonder if the Bucs will give Winston a lot of chances for high volume passing game with their strong defense and commitment to the run. This week, he faces a tough Minnesota defense in what could be a low-scoring game. He's not an automatic QB1 yet.

Week 3: at Minnesota Vikings

All QB vs MIN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Buccaneers quickly established Jameis Winston to Mike Evans connection as Evans had 7 receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown in the season opener. Winston threw the ball just 30 times in this game, but it was largely due to game script as the Buccaneers got off to a quick lead and there was no need to continue to throw the ball in this game. Outside of Evans, no receiver stood out as the only receiver with more than three targets was DeSean Jackson who had seven targets but was just able to catch three of those for 39 yards. On the season, the Vikings secondary which had high expectations coming into this season has not played up to their 2016 standards as in 2016 they were the third best pass defense allowing just 208 yards per game and this season they are the 25th pass defense allowing 259 yards passing per game. The biggest difference has been Xavier Rhodes not being 100% healthy along with Trae Waynes really struggling in coverage so far this season. The one bright spot for the Vikings has been Harrison Smith who has been one of the best coverage safeties so far this season and was a big factor why Antonio Brown was held to just 5 receptions for 62 yards. This could be a big opportunity for DeSean Jackson this week as Smith will likely stay to help protect Mike Evans side of the football.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs CHI (18 / 30 / 204 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)

Winston had a fairly efficient day, completing 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers; however, he left a lot of yards on the field with several missed opportunities. Winston had Desean Jackson open in or near the end zone 3 times and overthrew him twice, with Jackson securing one catch but falling out of bounds. The good news is that Winston is definitely looking down the field for his new speedy WR. Winston also missed a wide open Charles Sims, who had several steps on his defender while running a deep wheel route in the 2nd half. Winston found Mike Evans on a corner route for a beautiful toe-tapping touchdown early in the 1st half. With Tampa Bay capitalizing on so many Chicago turnovers, Winston and the offense didn't put up quite the offensive numbers that you might expect from a 29-0 victory. Ryan Fitzpatrick spelled Winston for a few snaps in the 4th quarter with the game on ice.

Our View: Winston barely had to break a sweat as Bears turnovers helped the Bucs offense with short fields and extra points from the Bucs defense. He has a tougher game next week at Minnesota.
