    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston, who is listed at 6-foot-4 and 231 pounds, intends to add muscle during the offseason and wants to play at 250 pounds in 2019. 'I'm getting it. I'm going to play bigger this year. I'm about 250. Yeah. A solid 250. It's just about hydration and being at the peak body, too,'' Winston said.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear why Winston feels the need to put on weight, although fantasy owners will probably take it if it allows him to stay on the field and improve on his deep passing. The arrival of head coach Bruce Arians figures to be a boon to his career, and there is little question he has a capable supporting cast with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard as his primary targets. If he doesn't thrive this season, he'll likely have no one but himself to blame.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has struggled with bad decisions and poor mechanics throughout his four-year pro career, according to new head coach Bruce Arians. However, Arians stopped well short of placing all the blame on Winston for his 58 interceptions and 18 lost fumbles, suggesting much of the blame for his turnovers were the product of being on a poor football team that found itself trailing by multiple scores too often.

    Huddle Up: It's clear Arians believes in Winston and his ability to curb the turnovers, and it helps matters the 66-year-old coach has an extensive track record working with some of the game's best quarterbacks, such as Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer. The former No, 1 overall pick doesn't lack for weapons and Arians' presence figures to be a boon for the entire offense, so it's really a matter of the running game and defense coming around. Winston could easily return to QB1 status in 2019.

  • Posted: 1/18/2019 8:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw 11 interceptions in his first five games in 2018 and three interceptions over his final six games.

    Huddle Up: Winston has QB1 potential, but he has struggled with consistency throughout his career. Fantasy owners can hope that the solid finish to 2018 was a sign of things to come next season.

  • Posted: 1/17/2019 8:22pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will benefit from having Bruce Arians as his head coach, according to retired QB Carson Palmer. 'It's probably the best thing that could've happen to Jameis at this point in his career,' Palmer said. 'Getting a guy like B.A. to come in and clean up some things technically. And really installing what he does best and that's push the ball down the field.'

    Huddle Up: Winston's upside is undeniable, but poor decision making and turnovers remain an issue. If Arians can help him out in the consistency department, Winston could easily finish as a QB1 in 2019.

  • Posted: 1/10/2019 6:38pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is a 'rising star,' according to head coach Bruce Arians, and Arians is optimistic that Leftwich can help QB Jameis Winston improve as a player.

    Huddle Up: Winston has the talent and the weapons to be a QB1 this season, but the question is whether or not Leftwich and Arians can bring the best out of the quarterback on a weekly basis. Consider him a QB2 with upside for now.

  • Posted: 1/10/2019 6:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston just needs to relax and let his natural ability take over, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Talent is no issue,' Arians said. 'It's just becoming a little bit smarter.'

    Huddle Up: Winston will be at the helm of an offense that is loaded with weapons, but it remains to be seen if Arians can help the quarterback find some consistency. Consider him a QB2 with upside heading into 2019.

  • Posted: 1/9/2019 11:23am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will be the focal point of the offense under new head coach Bruce Arians. Arians lauded the controversial quarterback, crediting his work ethic, intelligence, toughness and physical abilities. Arians added that he has to put the right pieces around Winston.

    Huddle Up: Things are looking up for Winston, who averaged the second most fantasy points per game among quarterbacks last year. If the Buccaneers add someone like Le'Veon Bell to take over an abysmal backfield, they'll have one of the best offenses in the league. Either way, Winston is a QB1 contender in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/31/2018 11:27am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to remain the team's starting quarterback in 2019, general manager Jason Licht told reporters during his season-ending presser Monday, Dec. 31.

    Huddle Up: Winston will be entering the team option portion of his rookie contract in 2019. The former No. 1 overall pick has consistently mixed poor decisions on and off the field with occasional spectacular play, but it's fair to say he hasn't lived up to expectations yet. Tampa Bay would be well-served to hire a creative mind to run the offense and make fixing the ground game an important part of the offseason plan. Winston's fantasy outlook for 2019 figures to depend heavily on how the Bucs improve their roster this spring.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 5:21pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 22 of his 35 passes for 345 yards, four touchdowns and an interception and rushed twice for 23 yards in a 34-32 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Despite a turbulent 2018 campaign, Winston is expected to enter next season as Tampa Bay's starting quarterback. Consistency remains a major concern, but he always seems to have a few big games. He should at least be a solid streaming option in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 8:24am ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers intend to bring back QB Jameis Winston as their starting quarterback in 2019, according to multiple league sources.

    Huddle Up: Winston, who turns 25 next month, will be heading into the final season of his five-year rookie contract and the team could eventually opt to sign him to an extension, give him a franchise tag or let him go after the 2019 campaign. Through 10 games this year (eight starts), he has thrown for 2,647 yards with 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He merits consideration as a QB2 option in all fantasy formats for 2019.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 4:11pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 34-of-48 passes for 336 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: It was Winston's second 300-yard game in six starts since taking back over the No. 1 job from Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he has just one TD pass over the past two games. He still remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues deciding their championship in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 12:57pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 13-for-25 for 157 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Winston was held under 200 yards for only the third time this season and was held without a touchdown pass for only the second time. He will face a solid Dallas Cowboys defense next week and can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 4:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 18-of-38 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 14 game against the New Orleans Saints and he led the team with 47 rushing yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston has a four-game streak of two touchdown passes, but he was very inaccurate in this outing. He'll look for better results in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 12:23pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) was able to remain in the Week 14 game after having his knee examined.

    Huddle Up: Winston has played well over the last several weeks and can be a starting option against most opponents.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 1:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 20-of-30 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 win against the Carolina Panthers and he led the team with 48 rushing yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston threw touchdown strikes to Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries and appears to be back in firm control of the starting job in Tampa, at least for now. Next up is a visit from the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 2:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 29-for-38 for 312 yards and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12. He also rushed for 24 yards on seven carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Winston regained the starting job and posted his third 300-yard game of the season. He will be facing a solid Carolina Panthers defense next week but could be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2018 12:37pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will reportedly be named the starting quarterback for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: This will mark the second time the former No. 1 overall pick "regained" his job this season. Thanks in large part to a great supporting cast and a terrible defense, Winston should be poised to post a few QB1 performances down the stretch even if he continues to throw interceptions at an alarming rate. Another in-game benching is not out of the question, however, making him very much a risk-reward option.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 11:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was benched Monday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Winston can be released in most formats as it's hard to envision him getting another shot unless Ryan Fitzpatrick gets hurt. There is still some hope in deep dynasty leagues, and maybe he can land somewhere fruitful in the offseason.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 5:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 32-of-52 passes for 365 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns while running for 55 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Winston has back-to-back 300-yard performances, although this was his first time in three games without throwing a TD pass. The yardage totals have been nice lately, but he is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats. The Buccaneers travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 12:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston is coming off a terrific Week 6 performance and should have a favorable matchup again this week. He can be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 12:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Winston faces a tougher test in the dog pound versus the Cleveland Browns this week, but he's still a viable No. 1 fantasy quarterback after an overall solid outing in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Cleveland Browns have yielded just nine touchdowns while picking off nine passes so far this year, but that doesn't make Winston completely avoidable. Don't expect the same output from last week, but at worst he's a fine start for those with quarterbacks on bye.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 7:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 30 of his 41 passes for 395 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed five times for 31 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston piled up some big numbers in his first start of the year, and he has a great chance to be a QB1 the rest of the way thanks to Tampa Bay's potent offense and porous defense. He will face a tougher test against a solid Cleveland defense in Week 7.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 1:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 16-for-20 for 145 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Winston probably will receive the Week 6 start, but owners will have to wait for an official announcement. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 3:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was activated from the reserve/suspended list on Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Even though Winston is officially back, it's looking more likely than not he won't reclaim his starting quarterback gig right away, with backup Ryan Fitzpatrick playing so well. There should be no sense of urgency to pick him up if he's available.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 7:02am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has a three-day roster exemption before the team has to activate him from the Commissioner's Exempt list Friday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Winston isn't a bad stash if you have a great QB1 with a later bye week, but signs point to Ryan Fitzpatrick remaining the starter for now.

  • Posted: 8/29/2018 8:09am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has completed 30 of 41 passes for 388 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in three games this preseason to rank as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded quarterback this August.

    Huddle Up: Winston finished 2017 as fantasy's 12th-ranked QB in terms of fantasy points per game (20.82) -- something to keep in mind with Winston serving a three-game disciplinary suspension to open the season. After that, he's a solid QB2/starting QB streamer.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 8:08pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13 of his 18 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Winston is facing a suspension to open the year, but he is capable of delivering QB1 efforts when on the field.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 11 of his 13 passes for 102 yards against the Miami Dolphins in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Winston will serve a suspension to open the year, but he is still worth drafting as a QB2. Consistency has been an issue, but he will deliver some QB1 efforts.

  • Posted: 6/21/2018 3:42pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to be suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to sources. The suspension could increase or decrease depending on the circumstances surrounding the off-field incident.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when a suspension will officially be announced. Winston could still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues, but owners would need a strong backup to use early in the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick probably would start if Winston sits out but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 6/21/2018 7:58am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expecting a suspension by the NFL for an incident with an Uber driver in 2016, according to ESPN Radio 97.9 in Tallahassee's Jeff Cameron. Cameron's sources told him that the maximum is likely three games, but the most likely event is that he's suspended one game. Winston was accused of groping a female Uber driver in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the suspension would stem from his failure to report the incident to the league. The personal conduct policy states players are 'to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of this policy.' It's unknown if Winston would appeal.

    Huddle Up: Winston is a midrange QB1 with some upside due to the talent around him. The Bucs have a bye in Week 5, and if he misses three games, then you have him for one game in the first five weeks of the season. You would have to draft another starting option with him in that event. If he misses one game, his value doesn't falter too much.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 11:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston could be running some more read-option plays in 2018, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

    Huddle Up: The read-option has the ability to open up the offense and inflate Winston's running numbers a little bit. The Buccaneers don't want to further risk injury to their franchise quarterback, though. Either way, Winston is primed for a rebound season and needs to be drafted as a QB1.

  • Posted: 4/17/2018 8:15am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston's fifth-year option was exercised Tuesday, April 17. It's worth $20.922 million guaranteed for injury.

    Huddle Up: Winston has improved his completion percentage every year in his three-year career. He was on his way to surpassing his career-high 4,090 passing yards before injury last season. He'll be a solid midrange QB1 with some upside in fantasy.
