Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick benched again

For the second time in seven weeks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been benched for Jameis Winston.

Fitzpatrick was pulled after throwing his third interception, this one in the end zone, early in the third quarter against the New York Giants on Sunday. He was 13 for 21 for 167 yards, no touchdowns and the three picks, as the Bucs trailed 21-7.

Fantasy Impact: 

Winston led the team to three-straight scoring drives. Winston is in the fourth year of his rookie contract since being taken No. 1 overall in 2015. Tampa Bay previously picked up his fifth-year option for 2019, which is guaranteed for injury only. So, it will be an interesting situation going forward as the Bucs seem to want to cut ties with Winston after this season.
