Player Notes
Feb 11 12:33pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has struggled with bad decisions and poor mechanics throughout his four-year pro career, according to new head coach Bruce Arians. However, Arians stopped well short of placing all the blame on Winston for his 58 interceptions and 18 lost fumbles, suggesting much of the blame for his turnovers were the product of being on a poor football team that found itself trailing by multiple scores too often.

Fantasy Spin: It's clear Arians believes in Winston and his ability to curb the turnovers, and it helps matters the 66-year-old coach has an extensive track record working with some of the game's best quarterbacks, such as Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer. The former No, 1 overall pick doesn't lack for weapons and Arians' presence figures to be a boon for the entire offense, so it's really a matter of the running game and defense coming around. Winston could easily return to QB1 status in 2019.

Jan 18 11:53pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw 11 interceptions in his first five games in 2018 and three interceptions over his final six games.

Fantasy Spin: Winston has QB1 potential, but he has struggled with consistency throughout his career. Fantasy owners can hope that the solid finish to 2018 was a sign of things to come next season.

Jan 17 11:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will benefit from having Bruce Arians as his head coach, according to retired QB Carson Palmer. 'It's probably the best thing that could've happen to Jameis at this point in his career,' Palmer said. 'Getting a guy like B.A. to come in and clean up some things technically. And really installing what he does best and that's push the ball down the field.'

Fantasy Spin: Winston's upside is undeniable, but poor decision making and turnovers remain an issue. If Arians can help him out in the consistency department, Winston could easily finish as a QB1 in 2019.

Jan 10 9:53pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is a 'rising star,' according to head coach Bruce Arians, and Arians is optimistic that Leftwich can help QB Jameis Winston improve as a player.

Fantasy Spin: Winston has the talent and the weapons to be a QB1 this season, but the question is whether or not Leftwich and Arians can bring the best out of the quarterback on a weekly basis. Consider him a QB2 with upside for now.

Jan 10 9:33pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston just needs to relax and let his natural ability take over, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Talent is no issue,' Arians said. 'It's just becoming a little bit smarter.'

Fantasy Spin: Winston will be at the helm of an offense that is loaded with weapons, but it remains to be seen if Arians can help the quarterback find some consistency. Consider him a QB2 with upside heading into 2019.

Jan 9 2:33pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will be the focal point of the offense under new head coach Bruce Arians. Arians lauded the controversial quarterback, crediting his work ethic, intelligence, toughness and physical abilities. Arians added that he has to put the right pieces around Winston.

Fantasy Spin: Things are looking up for Winston, who averaged the second most fantasy points per game among quarterbacks last year. If the Buccaneers add someone like Le'Veon Bell to take over an abysmal backfield, they'll have one of the best offenses in the league. Either way, Winston is a QB1 contender in 2019.

Jan 8 6:00pm ET

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a deal to make Bruce Arians their next head coach on Tuesday, according to sources. Arians took a year off after serving as the Cardinals head coach for five seasons. It's good news for Tampa's offense as a whole, and the Bucs front office will be hoping that Arians can finally help quarterback Jameis Winston turn a corner. They have the weapons in the passing game with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but the Bucs will be focusing on bolstering their running game heading into the 2019 season. There is a lot to like from this offense for fantasy owners.

Jan 1 1:00pm ET

Buccaneers' QB Jameis Winston scored an impressive 34.55 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 17 loss against the Falcons. Winston threw for 345 yards on 22-of-35 with four touchdowns and one interception.

Dec 31 2:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to remain the team's starting quarterback in 2019, general manager Jason Licht told reporters during his season-ending presser Monday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Spin: Winston will be entering the team option portion of his rookie contract in 2019. The former No. 1 overall pick has consistently mixed poor decisions on and off the field with occasional spectacular play, but it's fair to say he hasn't lived up to expectations yet. Tampa Bay would be well-served to hire a creative mind to run the offense and make fixing the ground game an important part of the offseason plan. Winston's fantasy outlook for 2019 figures to depend heavily on how the Bucs improve their roster this spring.

Dec 30 10:20pm ET

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers relieved head coach Dirk Koetter of his duties on Sunday after their Week 17 loss to the Falcons. Koetter was with the team for three seasons and finished his stint with a 19-29 record after going 5-11 in 2018. Koetter led the Bucs to their first winning season since 2010 when they went 9-7 in his first year in 2016. The ultimate deciding factor was quarterback Jameis Winston not improving in Koetter's time as the head coach, and Tampa's defenses were perennially awful. Winston is expected to return and has solid receivers around him in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but Tampa will focus on improving their backfield and bolstering their secondary under their new head coach.

Dec 30 8:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 22 of his 35 passes for 345 yards, four touchdowns and an interception and rushed twice for 23 yards in a 34-32 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 17.

Fantasy Spin: Despite a turbulent 2018 campaign, Winston is expected to enter next season as Tampa Bay's starting quarterback. Consistency remains a major concern, but he always seems to have a few big games. He should at least be a solid streaming option in 2019.

Dec 30 4:30pm ET

Buccaneers' QB Jameis Winston passed for 345 yards on 22-of-35 with four touchdowns in Sunday's loss against the Falcons. It was Winston's 2nd consecutive 300+ yard passing game. He has averaged 341 yards passing in those games.

Dec 30 11:33am ET

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers intend to bring back QB Jameis Winston as their starting quarterback in 2019, according to multiple league sources.

Fantasy Spin: Winston, who turns 25 next month, will be heading into the final season of his five-year rookie contract and the team could eventually opt to sign him to an extension, give him a franchise tag or let him go after the 2019 campaign. Through 10 games this year (eight starts), he has thrown for 2,647 yards with 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He merits consideration as a QB2 option in all fantasy formats for 2019.

Dec 24 5:40pm ET

The Atlanta Falcons defense/special teams returned a nice Week 16 performance against the Carolina Panthers. In terms of real world numbers it was a super day with two sacks, three interceptions, a forced fumble and just 10 points surrendered. In terms of fantasy points, all it was missing was a score and it would have been a super outing. However, compared to other performance this season, it was a welcome return for fantasy owners of this defense. Heading into Week 17 presents more opportunities for turnovers, with Jameis Winston under center, but it also presents the opportunity to concede plenty of points. Therefore, the Falcons defense is a middling unit this upcoming week for fantasy purposes.

From RotoBaller

Dec 23 7:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 34-of-48 passes for 336 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: It was Winston's second 300-yard game in six starts since taking back over the No. 1 job from Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he has just one TD pass over the past two games. He still remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues deciding their championship in Week 17.

Dec 23 4:30pm ET

Buccaneers' QB Jameis Winston passed for 336 yards on 34-of-48 with one touchdown in Sunday's loss in Dallas.

Dec 16 4:13pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 13-for-25 for 157 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Spin: Winston was held under 200 yards for only the third time this season and was held without a touchdown pass for only the second time. He will face a solid Dallas Cowboys defense next week and can be benched if owners have better options available.

Dec 9 8:03pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 18-of-38 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 14 game against the New Orleans Saints and he led the team with 47 rushing yards.

Fantasy Spin: Winston has a four-game streak of two touchdown passes, but he was very inaccurate in this outing. He'll look for better results in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Dec 9 3:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) was able to remain in the Week 14 game after having his knee examined.

Fantasy Spin: Winston has played well over the last several weeks and can be a starting option against most opponents.

Dec 9 2:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) is having his knee checked out in the locker room at halftime after one of his offensive linemen fell into his legs after he threw a touchdown pass late in the second quarter Sunday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Spin: It didn't look to be serious as Winston walked into locker room without any obvious signs of discomfort, but his fantasy owners hope this doesn't turn into another abbreviated appearance for the quarterback who has thrown for 130 yards and two scores in the first half.
