Jameis Winston fifth-year player option being picked up by Bucs

Jameis Winston's fifth-year option is being picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will earn $20.922 million in the fifth and final year of his rookie deal, according to Rick Stroud.

Fantasy Impact

Winston now carries a cap hit of $8,066,315 in 2018 and $20,922,000 in 2019 for the Bucs, who still have two years of affordable control over their young quarterback. Winston regressed slightly in 2017 and was involved in an off-the-field incident in which he was accused of groping an Uber driver, so the team will want to see a productive and issue-free 2018 before discussing a new long-term deal.

Jameis Winston with a little bit of everything against the Saints

Jameis Winston completed 28 of 51 pass attempts for 363 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions against the Saints. He also ran for 32 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

This effort summed up Winston's 2017 season perfectly - a bit wild and all over the place but generally productive for fantasy owners. With another year under his belt, Winston should be able to, if healthy, be a decent QB1 in 2018.

Jameis Winston throws for 367 yards against Panthers

Jameis Winston completed 21 of 27 pass attempts for 367 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers on Sunday. He also lost three fumbles.

Fantasy Impact

Winston was all over the place on Sunday, being extremely efficient in the passing game but also being careless with the football. As a whole, he has played well of late, however, and should be a decent starting option against the Saints next weekend.

Jameis Winston surgical in loss

Winston completed 27 of 35 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns in Monday night's 24-21 loss to the Falcons. He also rushed three times for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Winston turned in a stellar performance despite losing wideout DeSean Jackson and tight end O.J. Howard to ankle injuries early in Monday's contest. Without those prominent targets, Winston shared the wealth among Tampa Bay's pass catchers, completing a season-high 77.1 percent of his throws to a whopping 11 different players. Along with utilizing unfamiliar faces in the short game, two of Winston's three touchdowns came from over 25 yards, including a 42-yard bomb to Mike Evans during the third quarter. Although his heroics weren't enough to get Tampa Bay back in the win column, Winston can't be faulted for his Week 15 display.

Jameis Winston has 2 touchdowns, 3 turnovers in loss

Winston completed 26 of 38 passes for 285 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Winston also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Winston was once again unimpressive, a recurring theme in 2017. A lot of the blame can be put on head coach Dirk Koetter, as the entire offense has been atrocious all season. This has been a lost season for Tampa Bay offense both in real and fantasy football.
