The Bucs have hired Bruce Arians as their new HC. Byron Leftwich will serve as the OC, but it'll be Arians running the show. He was out of coaching this past year but spent the previous 5 seasons as the Cardinals' HC and also has 9 years of experience as an NFL OC. After struggling early in his career, Arians has landed 7 of his last 9 offenses inside the top 14 in total yards. He tends to lean toward the pass, with just 1 of those last 9 offenses ranking higher in rush attempts than pass attempts. All 9 of those units finished top 15 in pass yards, with 5 cracking the top 10. We'd expect a pass-leaning attack in Tampa Bay -- good news for QB Jameis Winston and WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin

Bucs GM Jason Licht said at his end-of-season press conference on Monday that QB Jameis Winston will be the team's starter in 2019. "There’s a lot to like about Jamies and he’ll be here next year," Licht said. Winston's 2018 got off to a rough start. He was suspended for the first 2 games and then got benched in his 3rd start. But he took back over in Week 12 and completed 63.3% of his passes with 11 TDs vs. just 3 INTs over the final 6 games. Winston was 12th among QBs in fantasy points over that span. Returning Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard, Winston should be in the QB1 mix again next year.

The Bucs have fired HC Dirk Koetter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. After going 9-7 in his 1st season at the helm, Koetter's Bucs went 5-11 in each of the last 2. We'll see who Tampa tabs as his replacement -- and whether they keep OC Todd Monken.

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.

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.
