Fantasy Analysis
Week 15 Projections
This past Sunday, the New Orleans Saints defense limited Winston to fewer than 250 passing yards for the second straight week. However, he has tossed two touchdown passes in each of his last three starts and has averaged 40 rushing yards per game. Dial down your expectations for Winston in a very tough road matchup against a Baltimore Ravens defense that has allowed the third-fewest passing yards and the sixth-fewest touchdown strikes. Baltimore also has permitted only one visiting quarterback to pass for more than 212 yards and two touchdowns.
Passsing: 285 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 23 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Some consider Winston's injury-marred 2017 a total disappointment. He missed three contests and was unable to finish two others due to a lingering throwing shoulder injury, finishing 18th in the final fantasy quarterback rankings. Winston, however, was consistently productive when healthy and flashed strong signs of improved play in his third season, which included a career-best completion percentage. Returning from a three-game injury layoff in Week 13, Winston, playing five full season-ending contests, amassed a league-leading 1,584 passing yards and nine touchdown strikes. Prorating the fantasy scoring from Winston's 11 completed starts across 16 games produced a top-five fantasy quarterback ranking and a league-leading 610 attempts. Unfortunately, the on-the-rise Winston will start the 2018 season serving a three-game suspension for violating the NFL's conduct policy, which obviously tamps down his fantasy prospects a bit. Since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a Week 5 bye, Winston will be eligible to play in just one contest (Week 4) during the first five weeks of the season. His supporting cast is one of the NFL's deepest: Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson (he and Winston promised to improve their chemistry), Adam Humphries, the promising Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate. Tampa Bay's revamped ground game (27th in 2017) and overhauled defense (32nd overall in 2017) will both likely struggle again, which should generate plenty of regular high-volume throwing games for Winston. If you take the "Winston Gamble" on draft day, you obviously need to pair him with another solid low-risk quarterback who has plus matchups in Week 1 through Week 3 and in Week 5.

Passing: 848 Yards, 7 TD, 4 INT.
Rushing: 70 Yards, 0 TD.
