Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
The former number one overall pick will be entering his fourth year as the starting quarterback in Tampa. Winston had a forgettable year in 2017 that was marred by injury and inconsistent play by the offense. The Buccaneers went 3-9 in games started by Winston, and they finished the year 18th in total scoring.
Statistically, Jameis had his best year as a passer in completion percentage and passer rating. Winston completed 63.8 percent of his passes, up from 60.8 percent in 2016. His passer rating also rose to 92.2 percent, besting his previous high of 86.1. Fantasy speaking, Winston averaged 15.5 points per game which ranked him 16th among all quarterbacks with at least 13 games played.
Winston will once again be the starting quarterback in 2018, and he is in the final year of his rookie contract with a team option for a fifth year. Winston currently has an ADP of 102.17, the tenth quarterback drafted according to DLF’s January ADP. It is also worth noting that Winston is under NFL investigation for allegedly groping an Uber driver in 2016. If the NFL decides that Winston broke league rules, he could miss some time in 2018. This is something to monitor for fantasy owners.
