Winston's going to be heading into a training camp battle with Taysom Hill and I do fully expect him to come out on top as the starter. However, this doesn't automatically mean that Winston's back to being a very fantasy relevant QB. This depth chart is extremely thin behind guys like Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. While there are talented options like Tre'Quan Smith and Adam Trautman, someone else is going to have to step up in order for Winston to be on the weekly streaming radar. Winston's worth rolling the dice on with one of your later draft picks if he does indeed become the QB1, but we should also temper expectations and acknowledge the possibility that he won't automatically turn into a fantasy football superstar.

Jameis Winston: Saints QB approach to operate 'with flexibility,' per Breer

While questions continue to swirl regarding the Saints' quarterback situation, Albert Breer of SI provided some clarity in his column on Monday morning. Specifically, he said that New Orleans' quarterback approach "will be built with flexibility to play either guy."

Fantasy Impact

The Saints, of course, are entering 2021 without Drew Brees after the future Hall of Famer retired. They brought back Jameis Winston and restructured Taysom Hill's contract, leaving one starting job and two candidates. Now, though, it looks as if both will be incorporated. Breer noted that Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are both different-styled quarterbacks, so "Payton’s plan, in conjunction with coordinator Pete Carmichael and the offensive staff, will be to a lay a foundation that works for both quarterbacks, with tweaks to highlight each guy’s talents."
