Winston said his shoulder feels better and that he "knows how it's going to feel Sunday."
Looks like we can add psychic to the skills of Winston, as he can predict the future, apparently. Heading into Week 7, we were unsure of Winston's status and whether or not he would be healed up enough to play in what was a tough matchup versus the Bills. Not only did he play well, he put up a great fantasy stat line, throwing for 384 yards and 3 TDs en route to a 23+ fantasy points day. Winston, by far, had the best performance by a QB against the Bills this season.
In what our aFPA deems a neutral matchup versus the Panthers, we have Winston ranked as our No. 10 QB this week. If we discard Mitch Trubisky's Week 7 performance versus the Panthers, Carolina allowed multiple passing touchdowns in four straight weeks and an average of 19.5 fantasy points during that span. We're pretty confident Winston will attempt more than 7 passes this week, so feel free to fire him up as a QB1 this week.
