View More Notes

Winston was efficient in the Buccaneers' Week 2 win over the Bears, but he was far from spectacular, completing 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. His performance is unlikely to get much better this week in Minnesota against a tough Vikings defense that held Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger to a combined 33 fantasy points. The Vikings are incredibly stingy against opposing QBs, rarely allowing a 300-yard passer, and it's unlikely that Winston will break that trend. In a tough road matchup, he's likely not a start for you outside of two-quarterback leagues.

Jameis Winston impressive in home opener

Jameis Winston completed 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Winston could have had a bigger game through the air if not for a negative game script. The Tampa defense dominated Chicago, allowing the offense to be more conservative in the second half. Winston will look to build on this confidence-building performance next week against the Vikings.
