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.”
Jameis Winston (ADP 136.67, QB13)
It’s hard to believe Winston is only 26 years old. Seems like just yesterday when he was out there slinging the rock for an interception for every touchdown. Oh wait, that’s exactly what he did this season when he threw for 33 touchdowns to 30 interceptions averaging nearly two interceptions per game. I can’t wait for his 30 for 30.
Despite being a turnover machine, he still finished as the overall QB5, throwing for 5,109 yards. He might not be the greatest QB in real life but from a fantasy perspective, Winston was fantastic. He truly is a national treasure.
His ADP has remained relatively flat in the QB10-13 over the last year which is well below his production. It’s not a big surprise, given the general belief by most in the community that he will be replaced in the near future.
Honestly, I can’t say the concerns are unwarranted as Winston is a much better fantasy asset than a real life quarterback. His lack of development over the course of the last few years is worrisome. He’s always struggled with ball security and decision making, and it doesn’t look like it’s gotten much better in the last year as he set a career high in interceptions.
