Buccaneers | Jameis Winston will see lots of reps

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:40:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will receive more repetitions than usual for a rookie quarterback in preseason, according to general manager Jason Licht.

Fantasy Tip: Rookies can't get enough live professional football experience, including talented, big-name rookie quarterbacks. Tampa Bay wants Winston to be as prepared as possible for the regular season. The obvious risk is that the more Winston plays in preseason, the higher the risk is of being injured. He should be viewed as a backup fantasy quarterback as he enters his rookie season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston grasping offense quickly

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 15:12:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston understanding of the offense already stands out, according to TE Luke Stocker. "What is impressive is the speed that Jameis has picked everything up -- from the huddle to the cadence to the checks to the audibles," Stocker said. "He's picked everything up so fast."

Fantasy Tip: Winston should be able to win the starting job, but he will likely be backup for fantasy purposes as a rookie.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston's confidence a plus

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 17:46:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has the mentality needed to succeed in the NFL, former FS Ronde Barber said. "I've played against guys that have supreme confidence in themselves and their ability to make plays," Barber said. "You can already see it. He has no fear letting the ball go."

Fantasy Tip: While Winston's confidence will undoubtedly lead to some mistakes and turnovers, it should also allow him to deliver some big plays. Winston remains a low-end QB2 outside of dynasty leagues, but receiver Mike Evans should enjoy a boost in his numbers.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans feels he was held back

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:00:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is expected to play more on an island in 2015 as the "X" receiver in Tampa Bay's new offense, which is the same role offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter created for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones during Koetter's time with that organization. He said Monday, June 29, that the QB carousell of Josh McCown and Mike Glennon last year held him back, too, so he is excited about a potential breakout with QB Jameis Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Evans posted huge numbers last season, finishing with over 1,000 yards while scoring 12 touchdowns. If he can improve on those numbers he will be a Top 5 fantasy option at his position. Look for him to fly off the board rather early on draft day.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston staying focused

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:02:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is maintaining his focus while eyes stay peeled on him in his rookie offseason. Winston said he's focused on being a quarterback on and off the field. He added that he's also focused on bouncing back from the mistakes he's made, saying he has nothing to prove.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Winston really has put his tumultuous past behind him remains to be seen, but he's at least saying the right things. His teammates seem to be warming up to him and he's performed well, for the most part, this offseason. That being said, Winston should not be considered a starting fantasy quarterback in his rookie season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston looking to drop weight

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:24:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he wants to lose some weight before the start of training camp. Winston said he currently weighs 238 pounds and would like to drop to around 230 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Winston likely will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job and probably will be the starting quarterback Week 1. Owners should consider Winston as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season since he probably will struggle at times.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston working hard

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:34:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has been arriving at the team's facility at 6 a.m. for weightlifting and conditioning, and not leaving until 12 hours later. And he said he has been studying after that. "At home I study about two hours," Winston said Wednesday, June 24. "I try to get some rest but sometimes I've got to look over my script."

Fantasy Tip: Winston appears to be working hard in order to be ready and serve as the starter for Week 1, but he has split starter snaps with Mike Glennon in offseason work. If he can win the starting job immediately he will be worth drafting as a fantasy backup, but do not expect him to rise above Top 20 status at his position in his rookie season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston following advice

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 20:19:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he appreciates the advice he has received from DT Gerald McCoy and believes it is helping him earn the respect of the veterans on the team.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a steep learning curve for Winston in his rookie year, but he has enough weapons to work with in Tampa Bay, to deliver an occasional solid performance. Don't be surprised if he is worth a look as a sleeper play against friendlier matchups later in the season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wants to earn job

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 17:26:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said Tuesday, June 16, he wants to earn the starting quarterback job, as opposed to having it handed to him. Winston doesn't plan to take it safe during the process, either. "I like to throw guys open," Winston told USA TODAY Sports after Tuesday's opening practice of minicamp. "I threw a couple interceptions last year. But it's a new year, and I've got a lot of good guys, and I'm looking forward to greatness," said Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Winston finished his final season at Florida State with 18 interceptions. With a couple of great receivers in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, Winston should be able to cut down on that number during his rookie season in the NFL. While Winston has the upside to emerge as a fantasy option later in the season, he should be avoided in standard 12-team drafts.
