Jameis Winston's problems have been mechanical?

New Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians says Jameis Winston's turnover problem is all mechanical.

Fantasy Impact

Arians adds that any quarterback would turn the ball over when trailing by 21 points or more. The new Bucs coach has given Winston several public endorsements. It sounds as if the 25-year-old will get every chance to remain a starter in the NFL. Arians' aggressive mindset could help make Winston a high-end QB1 in fantasy next year. Right now he's a great late round quarterback option.

Jameis Winston has to be "a little bit smarter"

New Bucs coach Bruce Arians said on Thursday that Jameis Winston just needs to be "a little bit smarter".

Fantasy Impact

Arians added that Winston is talented and just needs to "relax and play the game". Tampa Bay is clearly committed to Winston in 2019 and beyond, and Arians was the perfect hire in that regard. Still just 25 years old it wouldn't be surprising to see Winston have a big fantasy season next year.

Jameis WInston throws four touchdowns in Week 17

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 22-of-35 passes for 345 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

While Winston struggled earlier in the season, he played well and managed his turnovers down the stretch. Winston might have saved his job for 2019 as a result. Tampa Bay has work to do this offseason.

Jameis Winston expected to return as Buccaneers' starter in 2019

Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston is expected to return as the team's starter for the 2019 season, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Winston has a $21 million fifth-year option in 2019 on his rookie contract, but none of that money is guaranteed, meaning the Buccaneers could change their mind and move on from him at any time. While he was suspended to begin the season, was benched for Ryan Fitzpatrick after he returned from that suspension, and has thrown just 15 touchdown passes against 13 interceptions, he has played well enough in the past month for Tampa Bay to bring him back for another look next season. This report should be taken with one enormous grain of salt, however, as it is not even a given that the current coaching staff of the Buccaneers returns for 2019.

Jameis Winston struggles mightily in Week 16 loss

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 34-of-48 passes for 336 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Winston didn't throw a pick, but he did manage to lose two fumbles, one of which, returned for a Jaylon Smith touchdown on the other side. While Winston put up big yards and threw for a score, his stat line looked better than how he actually played. Winston gets an improved Falcons defense in the season finale.
