Fantasy Analysis
Week 2 Projections
The very disappointing performance of Winston and the Buccaneers offense during a Week 1 home loss to the San Francisco 49ers was one of the biggest Week 1 surprises. With Mike Evans (illness) limited, Winston passed for only 194 yards and one score, and the 49ers returned two of his three picks for touchdowns. By the way, two Cameron Brate scoring grabs were nullified by penalties. Can Winston get his head right in time for a Thursday night road matchup against a reworked Carolina Panthers defense? This past Sunday, Carolina limited a rusty Jared Goff (Rams) to 186-1-1 passing. Winston, however, has had success against better Panthers defenses. Consider him a dicey boom-or-bust play.
Passing: 249 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 21 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Winston underachieved yet again this past season. His inconsistent campaign was the usual mixture of elite flashes and head-scratching mistakes, and it was marred by a three-game league suspension and a two-game benching during a midseason slump. The strong-armed Winston still connected on a career-best 64.6 percent of his throws and compiled career highs of 272.0 passing yards per game and a 5.0 percent touchdown rate, but he struggled with decision making, turnovers (14 picks and seven fumbles) and downfield accuracy (27.9 completion percentage on balls thrown 20-plus yards last season, second worst in the NFL). The arrival of head coach and quarterback optimizer Bruce Arians and his aggressive "no risk it, no biscuit" high-volume aerial attack will either save Winston's career or end it in Tampa Bay. In theory, Winston is a good fit for Arians' scheme, and the Buccaneers triggerman has a nice supporting cast of playmakers that includes stud Mike Evans, rising star Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard and red-zone specialist Cameron Brate. By the way, Ryan Fitzpatrick (Dolphins) is no longer looking over Winston's shoulder, and Tampa Bay certainly isn't anxious to see Fitzpatrick's replacement, "Plain" Blaine Gabbert, making starts. Arians enjoyed success with Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer. If anyone can coax top-10 fantasy production out of Winston, it would be Arians, but there are clearly no guarantees. Fantasy owners should treat Winston as a boom-or-bust guy and pair him with a safe option in case Arians can't work his magic with the beleaguered quarterback.

Passing: 3538 Yards, 22 TD, 17 INT.
Rushing: 269 Yards, 2 TD.
