    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will reportedly be named the starting quarterback for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: This will mark the second time the former No. 1 overall pick "regained" his job this season. Thanks in large part to a great supporting cast and a terrible defense, Winston should be poised to post a few QB1 performances down the stretch even if he continues to throw interceptions at an alarming rate. Another in-game benching is not out of the question, however, making him very much a risk-reward option.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 11:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was benched Monday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Winston can be released in most formats as it's hard to envision him getting another shot unless Ryan Fitzpatrick gets hurt. There is still some hope in deep dynasty leagues, and maybe he can land somewhere fruitful in the offseason.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 5:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 32-of-52 passes for 365 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns while running for 55 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Winston has back-to-back 300-yard performances, although this was his first time in three games without throwing a TD pass. The yardage totals have been nice lately, but he is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats. The Buccaneers travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 12:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston is coming off a terrific Week 6 performance and should have a favorable matchup again this week. He can be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 12:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Winston faces a tougher test in the dog pound versus the Cleveland Browns this week, but he's still a viable No. 1 fantasy quarterback after an overall solid outing in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Cleveland Browns have yielded just nine touchdowns while picking off nine passes so far this year, but that doesn't make Winston completely avoidable. Don't expect the same output from last week, but at worst he's a fine start for those with quarterbacks on bye.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 7:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 30 of his 41 passes for 395 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed five times for 31 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston piled up some big numbers in his first start of the year, and he has a great chance to be a QB1 the rest of the way thanks to Tampa Bay's potent offense and porous defense. He will face a tougher test against a solid Cleveland defense in Week 7.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 1:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 16-for-20 for 145 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Winston probably will receive the Week 6 start, but owners will have to wait for an official announcement. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 3:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was activated from the reserve/suspended list on Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Even though Winston is officially back, it's looking more likely than not he won't reclaim his starting quarterback gig right away, with backup Ryan Fitzpatrick playing so well. There should be no sense of urgency to pick him up if he's available.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 7:02am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has a three-day roster exemption before the team has to activate him from the Commissioner's Exempt list Friday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Winston isn't a bad stash if you have a great QB1 with a later bye week, but signs point to Ryan Fitzpatrick remaining the starter for now.

  • Posted: 8/29/2018 8:09am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has completed 30 of 41 passes for 388 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in three games this preseason to rank as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded quarterback this August.

    Huddle Up: Winston finished 2017 as fantasy's 12th-ranked QB in terms of fantasy points per game (20.82) -- something to keep in mind with Winston serving a three-game disciplinary suspension to open the season. After that, he's a solid QB2/starting QB streamer.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 8:08pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13 of his 18 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Winston is facing a suspension to open the year, but he is capable of delivering QB1 efforts when on the field.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 11 of his 13 passes for 102 yards against the Miami Dolphins in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Winston will serve a suspension to open the year, but he is still worth drafting as a QB2. Consistency has been an issue, but he will deliver some QB1 efforts.

  • Posted: 6/21/2018 3:42pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to be suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to sources. The suspension could increase or decrease depending on the circumstances surrounding the off-field incident.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when a suspension will officially be announced. Winston could still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues, but owners would need a strong backup to use early in the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick probably would start if Winston sits out but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 6/21/2018 7:58am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expecting a suspension by the NFL for an incident with an Uber driver in 2016, according to ESPN Radio 97.9 in Tallahassee's Jeff Cameron. Cameron's sources told him that the maximum is likely three games, but the most likely event is that he's suspended one game. Winston was accused of groping a female Uber driver in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the suspension would stem from his failure to report the incident to the league. The personal conduct policy states players are 'to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of this policy.' It's unknown if Winston would appeal.

    Huddle Up: Winston is a midrange QB1 with some upside due to the talent around him. The Bucs have a bye in Week 5, and if he misses three games, then you have him for one game in the first five weeks of the season. You would have to draft another starting option with him in that event. If he misses one game, his value doesn't falter too much.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 11:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston could be running some more read-option plays in 2018, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

    Huddle Up: The read-option has the ability to open up the offense and inflate Winston's running numbers a little bit. The Buccaneers don't want to further risk injury to their franchise quarterback, though. Either way, Winston is primed for a rebound season and needs to be drafted as a QB1.

  • Posted: 4/17/2018 8:15am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston's fifth-year option was exercised Tuesday, April 17. It's worth $20.922 million guaranteed for injury.

    Huddle Up: Winston has improved his completion percentage every year in his three-year career. He was on his way to surpassing his career-high 4,090 passing yards before injury last season. He'll be a solid midrange QB1 with some upside in fantasy.

  • Posted: 2/23/2018 5:31am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was not injured in a car accident last week in which his truck rear-ended another vehicle outside of Tampa.

    Huddle Up: Winston had a career-best 63.8 percent completion percentage and threw a career-low 11 interceptions. The offense didn't click as well as expected last season, and he may not have the hype entering 2018. He'll still be a solid midrange QB1.

  • Posted: 2/9/2018 3:11pm ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely will pick up QB Jameis Winston's fifth-year option this offseason, in the opinion of Buccaneers.com's Scott Smith.

    Huddle Up: Winston is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but should have most of his offensive weapons back next season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback depending on the league.

  • Posted: 1/17/2018 11:09am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston needs to go back to having fun with football, according to WR DeSean Jackson. 'Go back to being comfortable [as] who he used to be. Go back to having fun,' Jackson said about his quarterback.

    Huddle Up: Winston struggled in 2017, and maybe taking the game too seriously impacted his play. Jackson could be on to something, but losing will take its toll on anyone no matter how much fun they having playing. Winston has QB1 upside, but it's safer to draft him as a high-end QB2.

  • Posted: 1/1/2018 9:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston set the record for most touchdown passes for a player before his 24th birthday, recording his 69th on a late touchdown pass to WR Chris Godwin in the club's Week 17 game Sunday, Dec. 31. That edged out the previous record of 68, set by retired QB Dan Marino.

    Huddle Up: It may not have seemed like it due to Tampa Bay's highly disappointing campaign as a team but the former No.1 overall draft pick had arguably his finest season of his three-year career. Winston missed three games but still managed career bests in QB Rating (92.2) and passing yards per game (269.5), while logging 19 touchdown passes compared to 11 interceptions. With a nice supporting cast around him, including an improved running game spearheaded by Peyton Barber, Winston could prove to be one of the better value picks at his position in 2018.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:42pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 367 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. He also lost three fumbles.

    Huddle Up: Winston threw for his fifth 300-yard game of the season, setting a new single-season franchise mark. That record comes despite the fact he missed three games and was out for the majority of two others due to a shoulder injury. He has plenty of potential to be a fantasy stud in the future if he gets more help around him.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 10:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston passed for 299 yards while completing 27-of-35 throws in the team's Week 15 loss Monday, Dec. 18, against the Atlanta Falcons. He logged three touchdowns, no interceptions and also ran for 18 yards on three attempts.

    Huddle Up: Winston was absolutely sensational in this one, showcasing arguably his best performance of the entire season. While the former Heisman Trophy winner hasn't really taken that next step forward that many were anticipating this year, he's still flashed signs of brilliance, like on this night, that solidify him as a lower-end QB1.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 6:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 285 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has had difficulty with his surgically repaired shoulder and an ankle injury in a lost season for the Tampa Bay quarterback. He was expected to challenge for a spot as a QB1 in most fantasy leagues, but he has been far from dependable.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 3:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) went through a full practice Friday, Dec. 8 and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has a pretty solid matchup against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense, as the Lions allow 245.3 yards per game with 16 touchdowns through 12 outings. They have also yielded 36 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 1:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) was full go in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston had a decent outing in his return last week but he has yet to fulfill or exceed expectations from the offseason. If you're thin on options then Winston can be started, but he could cause a playoff sweat.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 2:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston was listed with an ankle ailment, not his usual shoulder injury. Either way, he practiced in full and appears to be ready for Week 14, but at this point he is more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 3:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 270 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. He also lost a fumble which was scooped up for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Winston also rushed five times for 18 yards. He missed time due to a right shoulder ailment, but he was back under center and he didn't appear to show any ill effects of his injury. However, he is still a risky fantasy play down the stretch, as the team is 4-8 and likely out of the playoff mix. It wouldn't be shocking to see the team rest him more down the stretch rather than risk him to further damage.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 9:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Winston is back in the lineup after missing the last several weeks because of the shoulder injury. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 1:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 1, and he is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Winston is expected to be back under center on Sunday, but he returns without Doug Martin in the backfield and Cameron Brate (hip) is questionable. It might be a good idea to keep Winston reserved and roll with someone else until he knocks off a little bit of the rust from his layoff.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 2:57pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Winston has missed the last several games because of the injury but is on schedule to play against the Green Bay Packers. He is a risky option because the injury is to his throwing shoulder but has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 12:26pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) will return as the starter in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Winston will have been sidelined for about a month when he takes the field this weekend. The Packers have been mediocre defensively against quarterbacks, but taking into account Lambeau Field's frigid temperatures and Winston's potential rust, he's a risky QB1.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 8:49am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) will practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, and he's expected to start in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Winston has a great matchup against the Green Bay Packers, and he's worth slotting back into your lineup as a midrange QB1.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 6:51am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) received platelet-rich plasma injections several weeks ago and will undergo an MRI exam Monday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: Winston hasn't resumed throwing and will miss his third consecutive game Sunday, Nov. 26, but he could be nearing a return. More information about his status will be known after the MRI exam is complete and he should remain stashed on fantasy rosters. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will continue to start in his absence but should be avoided in most formats.
