Draft note
by John Paulsen
Winston’s value has spiked since the arrival of new head coach Bruce Arians, who appears to be very committed to the former Heisman winner. In the 20 games over the past two seasons in which Winston attempted at least 25 passes—a way of filtering out a few of those games where Winston either did not start or was benched during the game—he has averaged 19.4 PPG. In 11 such games in 2018, he averaged 20.0 PPG. Those are top eight numbers. Arians’ history with Carson Palmer—20.8 PPG playing for Arians in 38 games from 2015-17—makes this look like a great pairing. If he’s going in the double-digit rounds, he’ll be a fantastic late-round quarterback option. Arians should be able to get the most out of Winston, especially with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard in the fold.

TB QB Jameis Winston - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Jameis Winston hasn’t been a great IRL quarterback, but he provided fantasy users with some big games last season. His production is difficult to gauge since he’s been benched or replaced someone so many times, but in the 20 games over the past two seasons with 25+ passes he has averaged 19.4 PPG. He threw for 300+ games in five of his nine starts in 2018, proving he can take advantage of the weapons surrounding him.

Fantasy Downside

Per usual, Winston struggled again with turnovers last season. He had 17 turnovers in 11 games played, tying for the third-most interceptions in the league (14). Since joining the league in 2015, Winston has thrown for the second-most interceptions (58) despite missing time due to injuries/benchings.

2019 Bottom Line

Winston has a very high ceiling for 2019 with the arrival of Bruce Arians. The Bucs’ new coach seems committed to having Winston at QB, and has brought out a lot of good fantasy seasons in other quarterbacks. Winston has plenty of talent around him in Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, OJ Howard and Cameron Brate. We’ve seen plenty of talent from Winston since joining the league, but he’s never seemed to fully put it together. Maybe the arrival of Arians can lead to some great things. Winston can be viewed as a lower-end QB1 option, and since he’s going in the double-digit rounds it makes him somewhat of a value selection.
