Jeff Cameron of ESPN Radio 97.9 in Tallahassee, Fla., reports that Bucs QB Jameis Winston and his "camp" expect a league suspension over 2016 charges that Winston groped a female Uber driver. Winston's crew reportedly expects "a maximum of 3 games." Guess we'll see about this case, which surrounds an ongoing investigation. Obviously, any missed time would alter Winston's fantasy outlook. Losing the 1st 3 weeks would cost him a trip to New Orleans plus home matchups with Philly and Pittsburgh. Those defenses ranked 5th, 8th and 7th, respectively, in Football Outsiders' pass-D efficiency last season.

QB Jameis Winston is set to sign a 1-year deal with the Saints, according to Yahoo's Charles Robinson. Winston reportedly turned down more money from another team, choosing instead to learn from QB Drew Brees and HC Sean Payton. Smart move. Winston is obviously off the 2020 fantasy radar, barring a Brees injury. But the 26-year-old remains a dynasty hold. Brees is 41 and taking his career season-to-season at this point.

Update: This move has finally become official.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston underwent surgery this offseason to repair a torn meniscus, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Winston never appeared on the injury report with a knee last year, so it's unclear when the injury occurred. We'll monitor his rehab, but this shouldn't impact his 2020. Winston, of course, is set to hit free agency if the Bucs don't use the franchise tag on him by March 12.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He only threw a football on Friday this week. But remember that he played through this thumb injury (and without WR Mike Evans) in the 2nd half of last week’s game, racking up 179 yards and 2 TDs. Winston comes with more risk than usual today but still boasts high-end QB1 upside.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is listed as questionable but is fully expected to play against the Lions this weekend. Winston didn’t throw on Wednesday, threw with a tennis ball on Thursday but graduated to a football on Friday. “He threw fine,” HC Bruce Arians said after Friday’s workout. “He'll be ready to go.” Winston carries elevated risk in Week 15 fantasy lineups but still boasts big upside.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice. QB Rya Griffin took all the 1st-team reps, according to insider Rick Stroud. Winston played through this injury last week and is still expected to play against the Lions on Sunday. But his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.
