Buccaneers | Jameis Winston loses weight

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:38:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, 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.

Fantasy Tip: Winston was impressive in his rookie year, throwing for 4,042 yards, 22 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He also ran 54 times for 213 yards and another six scores. Less weight will make him more mobile and possibly able to become more dynamic in an offense that has plenty of weapons around him. Winston isn't a surefire QB1, but he could be in discussion as a low-end QB1 on draft day.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston in better shape

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 11:48:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he's been eating better and working hard on conditioning since the end of the 2015 regular season.

Fantasy Tip: An improved physique doesn't necessarily translate to better production on the field, but it certainly doesn't hurt. Perhaps Winston will try to be more mobile in 2016. Even with the weapons he has and the shape he's in, he's still not in QB1 territory.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wants Jalen Ramsey

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 11:16:09 -0700

Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey received a heap of praise from former Florida State teammate and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston, who said he would gladly play with Ramsey again. "[The Seminoles] definitely have the best player in the world in Jalen Ramsey," Winston said. People talk about his position, but Jalen is the best cornerback, safety… I will take a pay cut to play with him again. He has a fierce mentality."

Winston added that he has already texted general manager Jason Licht about drafting Ramsey. It's highly unlikely that Tampa Bay would be able to draft Ramsey at their current No. 9 pick, however.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Winston flashed intriguing potential as a rookie. He enters 2016 as a solid QB2, and he could be worth starting in daily games against the right matchups.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston aims to shape up

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 07:44:31 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said that he needs to get into better shape before next season after playing in the Pro Bowl. "The most important thing I learned is I have to get my body in shape, because those men look good," Winston said. "Not just the other quarterbacks-everyone. Their bodies look good. But also, (Seattle Seahawks QB) Russell Wilson's preparation at the Pro Bowl. You know, it's a relaxing event, and he is still doing everything the right way. He is the first one to the huddle, leading guys in stretches, running everywhere you go."

Fantasy Tip: Winston made strides in his rookie campaign and will enter 2016 as an upper QB2.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston to have new HC

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 19:41:31 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will have a new head coach for the 2016 season, as the team announced they have fired head coach Lovie Smith Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's a curious move by the Bucs, as the offense looked a lot better at time this season, with the No. 1 overall pick Winston making strides and RB Doug Martin challenging for the rushing title. Apparently that wasn't enough for ownership. It's tough for Winston, as learning a new system could potentially stunt his growth. It will be interesting to watch into 2016 and beyond.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston tosses pair of TDs

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:39:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 15 of his 29 pass attempts for 295 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears. He also ran four times for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Winston has tossed at least one touchdown in six straight games, totaling 12 touchdowns with just four interceptions while going for 245 or more passing yards in six of the past eight outings. Despite the solid streak, he could end on a sour note in Week 17 against a powerful Carolina Panthers defense.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston reaches milestone

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 20:56:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw for 363 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 31-23 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 15, becoming the youngest player to throw for at least 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Winston had been quiet since his five-touchdown performance against Philadelphia in Week 11, and while consistency will remain an issue for the rookie, he could be worth a look at FantasyScore against friendlier matchups.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston getting better

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 10:09:54 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has a 60% completion percentage and has thrown 11 touchdowns to just four interceptions after the team's Week 6 bye this year. Before that he had a 57% completion percentage and have thrown seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: While the St. Louis Rams have faded defensively in recent weeks, they still present a pretty tough matchup for Winston ($6,500, 13.0% of cap), and he has just one touchdown pass in each of the last three games. Winston is probably a midrange quarterback in daily contests this weekend, and the upside is limited.
