Summary

Jameis Winston progressed well from his rookie to second seasons, but still had his bouts of growing pains. Winston had 11 games with an interception in 2016. The offseason has been a strong one for Winston's supporting cast, adding speed demon DeSean Jackson in free agency and drafting tight end O.J. Howard in Round 1. With Mike Evans already a blue chip target and Cameron Brate a solid option over the middle, Winston has one of the most stocked pass-catching cupboards in the NFL. While not an overt athlete, Winston has accrued seven rushing touchdowns through two seasons, averaging more than 10 yards per game. The floor is high for Winston with an adequate offensive line and boosted weapons collection. His ceiling will mandate continued growth of decision-making and turnover maintenance. (May 20)

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston off to historic start (Sun Jun 11, 11:25 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 4,000 yards and 20-plus touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Our View: We expect Winston to once again eclipse those numbers in 2017. The Bucs went out and added WR DeSean Jackson in free agency. Then they selected potential star TE O.J. Howard in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. With better weapons around him, Winston could turn in his best season yet. He could be a top-10 fantasy QB in 2017.

Buccaneers | Cameron Brate to remain the starter? (Sat Jun 10, 09:22 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate and QB Jameis Winston have a chemistry that is 'going to be tough to dethrone,' according to Trevor Sikkema of PetwerReport.com, and Sikkema believes Brate could make it difficult for TE O.J. Howard to be the No. 1 option at the position.

Our View: The Bucs are going to use a TEBC in 2017. Fantasy owners need to see how quickly Howard can be more productive than Brate at the position. Howard could at least be a better red zone target for Winston right out of the gate.
