Jameis Winston will not play Sunday against the Vikings

Jameis Winston, who was considered doubtful to play Sunday, has officially been downgraded to out. Andy Dalton will serve as the Saints QB1, per Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Winston has been dealing with a back injury that will now force him to miss his first game of the 2022 season. With Michael Thomas already ruled out, the shorthanded Saints will turn to long-time veteran Andy Dalton to lead their offense. Dalton is a veteran who is capable of leading an offense when called upon and should be considered an emergency streaming option at the position. With Winston and Thomas out, perhaps more touches will fall to rookie Chris Olave, as well as the Saints runningbacks.

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.

Fantasy Impact

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) did not participate in practice Thursday, missing his third straight practice.

Fantasy Impact

Winston has not practiced at all heading into the Saints' Week 4 game with the Vikings in London. With Winston's status definitely in doubt, it appears that Andy Dalton will draw the start with Taysom Hill serving as the backup. Dalton is a veteran who has been solid in the past, but fantasy managers should downgrade all of the Saints' playmakers for Week 4.
