Summary

Jameis Winston's up-and-down career continued in 2018 as his season started with suspension and included a midseason benching for streaky journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick on the maddeningly inconsistent Tampa Bay offense. Winston sheds Fitzpatrick as the backup for the Buccaneers and adds the guidance of Bruce Arians, notable strong offense-maker and quarterback optimizer in the NFL. Winston showed progress with a career-high 64% completion rate and 5% touchdown rate last season, but the below-average interception rate remained, a trend for his aggressive down-the-field style through four seasons. Winston has a strong collection of weapons, however, with Mike Evans, a developing Chris Godwin, and a returning-from-injury O.J. Howard as centerpiece targets. Cameron Brate is also one of the best secondary tight ends in the NFL. While a critical year for Winston to have his best season yet entering the final year of his rookie contract, he is set up for success from the coaching staff to myriad of pass targets. (April 13)
