Dynasty Player Profile: Jameis Winston (2022 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Player Profile: Jameis Winston (2022 Fantasy Football)

Jameis Winston was drafted number one overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015. He entered the NFL as a Heisman trophy-winning National Champion out of Florida State. He set franchise rookie records for passing yards, pass attempts, pass completions, and passing touchdowns as a year-one starter. He was also selected to play in the 2016 Pro Bowl his rookie year.

His sophomore campaign saw him better his accolade-loaded rookie season by marking improvement across the board. He was also the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in his first two seasons. Winston led the Bucs to their first winning season in six years and added franchise records in passing yards and passing touchdowns in a season. A star was born, and nothing could stop him.

Like any great story, all the news doesn’t end up being good. Unfortunately, Winston’s next two seasons would see his stellar career beginnings start to lose their shine. He had an injury-plagued 2017, and coming into the 2018 season, he was accused of groping a female Uber driver. That summer, it was announced that he would receive a three-game suspension for that transgression. As a result, he spent the rest of that season splitting playing time with Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The following season they brought in Bruce Arians to coach the team. The 2019 season proved to be one of Winston’s best statistical campaigns. He threw for over 5,000 yards and 30 TDs while setting career records for attempts, yards, and completions. Unfortunately, he also set career highs in turnovers with 30 interceptions and five lost fumbles. That season marked the end of the Jameis Winston era in Tampa. In 2020 the Bucs signed Tom Brady, and the rest is history in the making.
