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 - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Carolina Panthers

New year, same Jameis Winston. The problems that have plagued the Bucs' quarterback didn't go away in Week 1 despite an offseason of hope. Winston was his typical self, making bad decisions, resulting in three interceptions (he also fumbled twice, but didn't lose them). He scored just once, although he did have two touchdowns get called back due to penalties. He finished with 194 passing yards.

He faces a Panthers defense this week which shut down Jared Goff and the Rams' passing attack in Week 1, holding him to just 186 yards, one score and one interception. But with a short week, it's hard to know whether Carolina's D is up to the same lockdown defense again. Either way, Jameis is outside of QB1 range this week as he struggled last week, and draws a bad matchup.
