Last year the Saints put the handcuffs on YOLO Jameis Winston. They ran a slow as molasses offense, relying on their run game and limiting Winston to 25.2 pass attempts and 185.7 passing yards per game. This could easily be the case again in 2022, but there are some reasons for optimism here. Winston will be entering his third season of this offensive scheme, so he should know it inside and out by now. Hopefully, the Saints get Michael Thomas back healthy to pair with newly drafted Chris Olave. This moves Marquez Callaway into a more reasonable WR3 role. This cast of weapons with Alvin Kamara also on board could lead to more passing attempts that we didn't see in 2021. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The additions of Jarvis Landry, Chris Olave and Michael Thomas are massive benefits for quarterback Jameis Winston, who is starting to emerge from this offseason as an intriguing late-round quarterback fantasy option. Winston played with almost zero weapons a season ago and still managed to average 17.5 fantasy points per game - good for QB14 on the year. The Saints quarterback also finished the season with the league's sixth-highest passer rating (102.8) and the lowest turnover-worthy play rate (3%) of his career. Winston led all QBs last year in fantasy points per dropback (0.64).The rookie quarterback was highly efficient as a passer, finishing 18th in PFF passing grade, throwing 10-19 yards, 13th from a clean pocket and 10th on early downs. Those specific metrics tend to be sticky year over year and more predictive than raw counting stats. Still, those numbers were equally impressive for Jones, who posted the sixth-highest passer rating (92.5) and second-highest completion percentage (67.6%) for a rookie quarterback with at least 300 attempts in NFL history.

 This statistic is insane... (@anoutragedjew) Joe Burrow: 520 PaAtt / 4,198 AirYds Mac Jones: 521 PaAtt / 4,260 AirYds The biggest thing standing out watching this Patriots offense right now is the chemistry between Mac Jones and WRs/TEs. @kdthompson5 - Good real-life QB, but offense will rely on ground game and play slow. "[Mac] Jones looks out of sync and sometimes uncomfortable with what's happening around him ... the ball isn't coming out of his hands as quickly or decisively as in the past." per Patriots.com "I've never seen an NFL offense this bad this long into camp." @GregABedard puts the current Patriots in the context of his entire history covering the league on @SpainandFitz

Solid system with Carmichael. Some solid weapons. I don't hate Jameis as a mid-tier QB2 with some upside (and obvious downside). 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Winston seems to be on track to start in Week 1 and the Saints are expected to use a lot more 11 personnel. Winston could be one of the better late round quarterbacks in fantasy this year.Jones was the best rookie in his class last year, but he plays on a run-heavy offense and until the Patriots have an elite wide receiver, it will be difficult for him to be more than a low-end QB2.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Back to Saints - Was QB15 here last year. Some real upside. 7/4: Came out HORRIBLY in projections 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
With his YOLO style, Winston has always been a better fantasy QB than real-life QB. There could be some sneaky upside here now that he'll be starting for the Saints, who have a solid offensive line and a pair of high-volume pass catchers in RB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas.Unlike some of the QBs drafted ahead of him in 2021, Jones rarely looked overwhelmed or overmatched in his rookie year. On the other hand, Jones was much more of a game manager than a playmaker as a rookie, and he offers little rushing value. There's certainly room for growth, but he needs more pass-catching weaponry, and he needs Bill Belichick to loosen the reins.
