We know what this looks like, unfortunately. In 2021, with Winston making seven starts, the Saints turtled. They dialed back the pace and the passing rate and attempted to win games by running the ball and not allowing Winston to create turnovers. They were the ninth-slowest neutral-pace team in the NFL with the third-highest neutral rushing rate. Don't be surprised if New Orleans does the same thing in Week 4 with an even better defense backing Winston this season. In 2021, Winston ranked 24th in passing grade, 31st in adjusted completion rate, and 15th in yards per attempt. Tampa Bay has been a tough pass defense, allowing the seventh-lowest yards per attempt, the eighth-lowest adjusted completion rate, and the tenth-lowest passer rating. The one silver lining is their problems with stopping the deep ball. In 2021, Winston was 20th in deep-adjusted completion rate, but he had the seventh-highest deep ball rate, so New Orleans felt comfortable letting him take shots. That should also happen this week. Tampa Bay has given up the 11th-highest passer rating, the second-most passing touchdowns, and the eighth-highest adjusted completion rate on throws 20 yards or higher downfield. Week 4 Positional Value: low-end QB2

Jameis Winston solid in loss Sunday

Jameis Winston completed 10-of-16 passes for 101 yards in New Orleans' loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Winston started the game as the backup but had to come in when Derek Carr went down with a shoulder injury. He was solid during his limited time, not making many mistakes and actually orchestrating what would've been a game-winning drive if they didn't miss the field goal. Fantasy managers should keep tabs on Carr's injury, because if he's going to miss time, Winston will be the next guy up for New Orleans.
