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)

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston struggling (Thu Aug 15, 01:37 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was 'shaky again' Thursday, Aug. 15, during the second straight day of joint practices with the Miami Dolphins.

Buccaneers | Safer approach for Jameis Winston? (Wed Aug 7, 01:47 AM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he plans to check the ball down more this season. 'It's about moving the chains,' Winston said. 'It's about a completion here and a completion there.'

Our View: That's an interesting take considering Bruce Arians is his head coach. Arians loves to throw deep...like Winston...but it sounds like maybe they'll pick and choose when to take those type of shots. We're excited about the combination and see Winston as a QB2 with upside in 2019. Winston has a current ADP of QB13 (10.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
