Bucs HC Dirk Koetter refused to name his Week 12 starting QB at Monday's press conference, but the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports that it'll be Jameis Winston. That's what we expected after Ryan Fitzpatrick was yanked from yesterday's game against the Giants and Winston played well in relief. Winston, of course, made it just 2 full games before getting benched earlier this season. That adds some risk to his fantasy profile, but there's also lots of upside here. Winston racked up 760 passing yards and 4 TDs -- plus 84 rushing yards and another score -- in those 2 full games this year.

Bucs HC Dirk Koetter admitted that he'll consider going back to QB Jameis Winston after Sunday's loss to the Redskins. "Of course, yes ... We'll talk about all personnel issues tomorrow," Koetter said in his post-game presser. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick chucked for 406 yards vs. Washington, but he finished with 0 TDs, threw 2 INTs and lost a fumble. We'll see who the Bucs roll with for Week 11. Whoever it is will be a viable QB1 against the Giants.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston was benched late in the 3rd quarter after throwing his 4th INT of the game. All of the picks were ugly. Winston finished 18 of 35 (51.4%) for 276 yards and just 1 TD. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is in for Tampa. We'll see who they go with in Week 9.

Bucs HC Dirk Koetter confirmed on Monday that QB Jameis Winston will be the team's starter coming out of the Week 5 bye. Winston replaced QB Ryan Fitzpatrick at halftime of yesterday's game in Chicago, completing 16 of 20 passes (80%) for 145 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs. He scored as the #4 QB in his 11 healthy games last season, averaging 307 passing yards and 1.7 TDs. Winston will be in the QB1 mix for a plus Week 6 matchup against the Falcons.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston might not start in Week 4 when he's first eligible to return from suspension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We imagine whether Winston gets right back under center will depend largely on how QB Ryan Fitzpatrick plays these next 2 weeks. He was excellent in the opener but has trouble stringing quality outings together throughout his career. Tampa does have a Week 5 bye, so it's possible they give Winston that extra time to re-acclimate himself before getting him back out there in Week 6.

Injury Predictor

A 3-game suspension will keep Winston off the field to begin the 2018 season. In 2017, however, a sprained right A/C joint was the culprit. Winston left Week 6 early after suffering the initial injury but returned to start the next 3 games. A Week 9 aggravation, though, cost him 3 weeks before a productive 5-game finish. Winston played all 16 games in each of his 1st 2 seasons and displays no clear durability risk.
