    Florida State RB Dalvin Cook said it would be a 'dream come true' to play with Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston.

    Huddle Up: With Doug Martin's future in doubt, Tampa Bay could be in the market for a running back. Cook could shine alongside Winston and Mike Evans.

  • Posted: 1/21/2017 6:25pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was pressured on 34.9 percent of his drop-backs in 2016 but posted a QBR of 80.7 in those situations, the best mark by any quarterback since 2009.

    Huddle Up: Winston didn't make much of a leap statistically from his freshman to sophomore season in the NFL and still commits too many turnovers, but his ability to thrive under pressure like this bodes well for his future. The first overall pick in the 2015 draft could be poised to take the next step next season if Tampa Bay is able to find a capable sidekick for Mike Evans at receiver.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 2:09pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is the first player in NFL history to throw for at least 4,000 passing yards in each of his first two seasons. He is the fifth player ever to throw for at least 50 touchdowns in his first two seasons.

    Huddle Up: Winston has had his ups and downs in his young career, but he has been a borderline QB1 in those two seasons. Ideally, he will get even better as his career progresses, so he should not be considered a QB2. Draft him as a low-end QB1 in 2017.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 7:51pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 20 of his 35 pass attempts for 202 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Carolina Panthers. He also rushed three times for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston ended up throwing more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (5) in the final three games, but overall it was a successful season for Winston. He threw for 4,090 yards with 28 TDs and 18 INTs, completing better than 60 percent of his passes. He will be a low-end QB1 heading into 2017 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 11:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw for two interceptions Sunday, Dec. 24, in a 31-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Winston finished 23-of-35 for 277 yards and two touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Jairus Byrd was a nightmare for Winston all day, but it was quite a competitive contest for the Bucs QB. Winston has helped Tampa Bay become stronger on the field, but he's still too up-and-down to rank as a QB1. He works better as the second signal-caller on your team.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 6:02am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has thrown 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions in his last seven games.

    Huddle Up: He threw a pick Sunday, but he was pretty good otherwise. He was 21-for-28 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and the interception. He has crept up into the QB1 conversation and has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers next week.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 7:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 24 of his 39 pass attempts for 331 yards, one touchdown and no interception in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also ran five times for 22 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston has back-to-back 300-yard performances and at least one touchdown strike in each of his past six games, and nine of 10 games overall. He has emerged as a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats. The Bucs host the Seahawks in Week 12 in a bit of a difficult matchup.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 7:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he is learning to extend plays, and 10 of his 19 touchdown passes this season have come outside the pocket.

    Huddle Up: Winston will still have the occasional dud, but he has thrown multiple touchdowns in six of his nine games this year. He is a low-end QB1 in 12-team leagues against the Chiefs in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 2:05pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 36-10 win over the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Winston looked quite impressive against a Bears defense that has been decent against the pass (238.1 yards per game, 12th in the NFL). He also spread the wealth, firing passes to nine different receivers. Winston's numbers are looking strong, but you may want to consider the matchups before you play him on a regular basis.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 1:26pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and isn't listed on the injury report for Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Winston will face a mediocre pass defense, as Chicago ranks 12th allowing 238.1 yards per game with 26 pass plays of over 20 yards allowed. He has thrown eight touchdowns and just three interceptions through four home games. If you need a streaming option in standard fantasy leagues due to a bye week, Winston isn't a bad stopgap option.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 4:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Winston should be fine to play against the Chicago Bears and likely will not be limited. He has thrown eight touchdowns and one interception over the three games and should be a fine No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 8:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) suffered a knee injury in the second half of the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Winston was lifted as a precaution with the game out of hand, but if he has an injury he will have a few extra days to rest before the team returns to action in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 4:27pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 16 of his 32 pass attempts for 180 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also rushed three times for 16 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston's performance was a bit disappointing considering he was facing a leaky Oakland pass defense and the game went deep into overtime, too. He faces another favorable matchup on a short week Thursday against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 9:18pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will square off against the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. Oakland has allowed 302.1 yards per game through the air, worst in the NFL, while giving up 32 pass plays of 20 or more yards and nine or more pass plays of 40 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston is a solid streaming option in fantasy leagues if you're primary option has a difficult matchup or bye week, as he should throw for high yardage and multiple touchdowns against a shoddy pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 9:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 269 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Winston has three games with three or more touchdowns in six games this season, and he faces another favorable matchup against the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. If you need a bye-week replacement or your primary starter has a tough matchup, Winston is a solid fantasy option against the silver and black.

  • Posted: 10/10/2016 9:42pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for 219 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Winston's performance was disappointing considering how the Carolina pass defense was lit up a week ago in Atlanta. He remains more of a QB2 or bye-week replacement in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/4/2016 2:04pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston may already have eight interceptions on the season, but he has over 1,100 passing yards and nine total touchdowns, too.

    Huddle Up: Winston is easily in QB1 territory despite his turnovers. The Buccaneers have been forced to pass early and often, especially without Doug Martin. The Bucs may run more when Martin returns, but Winston remains a starting fantasy quarterback for the rest of the season as long as he's healthy.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed just 17 of his 35 pass attempts for 179 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos. He was able to salvage the stat line with five runs for 19 yards and his team's only score of the day.

    Huddle Up: Winston tossed eight touchdowns over his first three games, and was averaging 309.7 yards per game, but he took a big step backward in this one. Denver is a very good defense, however. Winston could rebound rather nicely in Week 5 at Carolina, a team which was gutted by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 9:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 36 of his 58 pass attempts for 405 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 3 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He rushed four times for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston has eight TD passes, but he also has six INTs on the season. Still, he is a high-end QB2 with QB1 potential when the matchup is favorable. He is also going to be a popular addition when bye weeks start to kick in.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 8:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 23 of his 33 pass attempts for 281 yards, four touchdowns and one interceptions in the Week 1 win against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Winston has shined early in his career against the Falcons. With a healthy Mike Evans and potent run game, Winston has the potential to take a giant step forward and perhaps emerge as a QB1 this season if his strong play continues.

  • Posted: 9/10/2016 5:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said he will feel more comfortable calling deep passes for QB Jameis Winston this year than he did last year as the offensive coordinator.

    Huddle Up: Winston should be a treated as a high-end QB2 in his sophomore campaign, and he will likely creep into QB1 territory when the matchups are friendly.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 7:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 16 of his 25 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns Friday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Winston has the weapons around him to build on a decent rookie season. Treat him as a strong QB2 in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 8/20/2016 8:58pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed just three of his 10 pass attempts for 28 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran twice for 15 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston was sharp last weekend, but this was a disaster. Will it be a sophomore jinx or will he take another step forward? With weapons like Doug Martin, Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, he has the tools in place to succeed. Still, treat him more like a high-end QB2 rather than a low-end QB1 in most standard fantasy football leagues.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 8:43am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed seven of his nine passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in four series against the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Winston showed promise as a rookie last year, and he headlines an up-and-coming offense. Draft him as a high-end QB2.

  • Posted: 5/22/2016 3:56pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he was not a big fan of QB Jameis Winston when he entered the NFL, but his opinion has changed after working with him this offseason. Monken said the passing game needs to improve under Winston because it was inconsistent in 2015. 'I think from the outside you would've looked at it with all the things that were publicized in the past about him and who he is. I was dead wrong. He wants to win as much as we do. He's a competitive joker, man, he's smart, he's intelligent ... you can win a lot of games with guys like that,' Monken said.

    Huddle Up: Winston finished 13th among fantasy QBs as a rookie, but more familiarity -- a bounce-back season from No. 1 WR Mike Evans -- could have Winston verging into QB1 territory this fall.

  • Posted: 4/26/2016 10:38pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has put in work to enter the 2016 season in much better shape, and his teammates were impressed with the results during voluntary minicamp Tuesday, April 26. Winston's trainer, Tim Grover, said Winston lost 18 pounds since last year. 'I was joking with him the other day. He took his shirt off, and I said 'Man, what happened to the belly?' He's got a six-pack like me. He's put in a tremendous amount of work, and I think it's going to be a great year for him and this whole team,' WR Mike Evans said.

    Huddle Up: It sounds as if things are continuing to look up for the second-year QB, who is a serious threat to the QB1 ranks after accumulating the 13th-most points among fantasy QBs a year ago.

  • Posted: 3/27/2016 9:26pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston growth will be measured in wins, according to head coach Dirk Koetter, and Koetter said he plans to eliminate the 'unknowns' for Winston and help him avoid unnecessary hits in order to help him succeed.

    Huddle Up: Winston at least is starting from a solid rookie-season base as he finished 12th among fantasy QBs last season after throwing for 4,042 yards and 22 TDs and rushing for 210 yards and six more scores. He's definitely in the low-end QB1 mix if you wait on drafting your quarterback.
