  • Jameis Winston Still Not 100 Percent

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) is about where the Saints want him to be as he recovers from a significant ACL tear. He is not 100 percent recovered and is still wearing a big, bulky knee brace on his left leg. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport recalls that Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow took around a month into last year's regular season before he regained his full mobility coming off his ACL tear. It could be a similar trajectory for Winston in 2022. The 28-year-old QB threw for 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns and only three interceptions in seven games before his injury last year for the Saints, and he has plenty of weapons in the passing game now that Michael Thomas (ankle) is back. Still, coming off a major knee injury, Winston should be treated as a QB2 in fantasy.

  • Jameis Winston To Take Part In Team Drills

    New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said that quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) will participate in team drills at training camp after he didn't really take part in team drills during organized team activities this spring. Winston has made steady progress since tearing his ACL in Week 7 of 2021, and all signs point to him being ready to go as the Saints starting QB in Week 1. The 28-year-old completed 59% of his 161 pass attempts for 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns and only three interceptions in seven starts last year, and this year he'll be getting Michael Thomas (ankle) back while also having new wideouts Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry. Fantasy managers shouldn't be comfortable with Winston as their QB1, but he's certainly quite intriguing as a strong backup in his third new in the Big Easy.
