Will Jameis Winston Play in Week 4? (2022 Fantasy Football)
Jameis Winston has played well through the first three weeks of the 2022 season. He completed 73 passes out of 115 attempts for 858 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions. However, a back injury threatens his availability for Week 4’s matchup against the Vikings in London. Will Jameis Winston play in Week 4, or do fantasy managers need to seek other options? Here’s where things stand.
Jameis Winston doubtful to play Sunday against Minnesota
Jameis Winston (back) is listed as doubtful to play Sunday after missing his third straight day of practice.
Head coach Dennis Allen stated earlier in the week that Winston was taking a rest day and that his back injury should not impact his availability. Now, after missing three straight practices, the Saints are likely going to have to turn to veteran Andy Dalton to make the start Sunday in London. Fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on how much time Winston will miss with this back injury, or if it will be limited to just one game.
- Jameis Winston (back) misses practice Friday
- Jameis Winston (back) not seen at the open portion of practice Thursday
- Jameis Winston takes a rest day Wednesday
What the Experts are Saying
Winston has been performing as a solid QB2 (QB17 in fantasy points per game) through the first three weeks, but is doubtful for this contest. Andy Dalton will start in his place.
