With Fitzpatrick gone, Winston is no longer at risk of surrendering games to the backup. He may not be great in real life, but from a fantasy standpoint, this gunslinger piles up the points. In fact, he and Ryan Fitzpatrick last year combined for the 2nd most fantasy points in football. With one of the top receiving cores in football, Winston could potentially eclipse 4,800 yards with the touchdowns to put him in the top 3.

Have you ever wondered which player was going to go off in a particular offense? Think about teams like the Patriots or Bears, who seemingly always had someone different posting big fantasy days. Moving to a food reference: instead of figuring what pancake it will be, take the syrup that'll go over all of them. Many have labeled Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard as breakout candidates, and while I agree with them, Mike Evans is still there, too. Instead of trying to figure out which player is going to go off every week, take the guy who's distributing the ball to them. The addition of Bruce Arians is fantastic, as is the horrible defense that'll be out there, because you'll watch the pass attempts (and fantasy points) rack up.

Winston has a new coach and Bruce Arians maybe able to help him turn his career around, but WInston's int percentage (3.7) and sack percentage (6.7) must both improve if he is ever going to be a consistent quarterback at the NFL level or in fantasy football.
