Mike's Thoughts: An aggressive redraft rank if the 49ers decide to slow play Lance behind the veteran Garoppolo, because they otherwise have a very competitive team. I don't think that will happen. Even if they are winning games early they could turn the reigns over to Lance if he is outplaying JimmyG in practice. Drafted Lance 14.07 (163) in a 1QB 12-team PPR on 8/15.

  • Jameis Winston Unlikely To Be Back In 2022?

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) suffered a torn ACL in the Week 8 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and will miss the rest of the season. Winston was always considered a one-year experiment and there are no guarantees after this season. The Athletic's Larry Holder doubts that Winston did enough prior to his season-ending injury to convince head coach Sean Payton that he can be the starter in New Orleans for the long term. Holder thinks the Saints will explore every avenue for a new QB in the offseason, potentially even considering trading for Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson. With Winston out the rest of the way, Taysom Hill is a strong candidate to take over under center once he clears the league's concussion protocols after missing the last two games.

  • Jameis Winston Sustains Season-Ending Knee Injury Sunday

    The New Orleans Saints' worst fears about quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) became a reality Monday, as per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Winston has sustained a torn ACL, ending his season abruptly. Winston is also believed to have sustained damage to his MCL, further highlighting the damage that he took before leaving Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. In place of Winston, Trevor Siemian put together a strong effort, throwing for 159 yards and a touchdown. New Orleans also has Taysom Hill in the QB room, who after starting four games as a signal caller in 2020, could throw his name in the mix to start during the second half of the season as well.

  • Jameis Winston's Knee Injury Could Be Season-Ending

    New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton described quarterback Jameis Winston's (knee) injury as "significant," and it could be a season-ending situation. It didn't look good when a defender pulled him down on an illegal horse-collar tackle that caused his knee to buckle, and he was eventually carted into the locker room and never returned in the second half. Backup Trevor Siemian led the team to a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Taysom Hill (concussion) figures to take over under center whenever he gets past his head injury if Winston is forced to miss extended time. Hill has missed the last two games while in the concussion protocol. The Saints should rely even more on running back Alvin Kamara and the ground game moving forward.

  • Jameis Winston Ruled Out After Suffering Knee Injury

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) was ruled out for the rest of the Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston was injured during a horse-collar tackle in the first half when his knee buckled. It didn't look pretty, and Winston was carted to the locker room after being evaluated in the blue medical tent. Backup Trevor Siemian has taken over under center. If Winston is forced to miss additional time, all of the Saints offensive skill players would need to be downgraded in fantasy, although they could rely even more on running back Alvin Kamara and the ground game. Winston went 6-for-10 for 56 yards and a touchdown before getting injured, adding 40 rushing yards on four carries. QB Taysom Hill (concussion) missed his second straight game, but he could be an option to start next week if Winston is unable to make it back.

  • Jameis Winston Carted To Locker Room

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (leg) left the game and was soon carted to the locker room after his leg buckled while being tackled. Although Winston has been disappointing this season, he's still a much more intriguing option than backup Trevor Siemian. If the former Buccaneer misses time, all of his weapons receive a major downgrade. Furthermore, if the injury is serious, he and all of his weapons besides Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas can be dropped in all leagues with few exceptions.

  • Jameis Winston - Week 8 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston could be a streaming candidate in Week 8 against the Buccaneers. Winston enters the contest having thrown for 1,114 yards, 13 touchdowns, and three interceptions, though he's been far less willing to throw downfield this year, as evidenced by his 7.4 yards per attempt. The 27-year-old signal-caller may have to throw more often against a Buccaneers offense averaging 33.3 points per game while allowing opposing quarterbacks to throw the second-most passing attempts in the league. Winston could have some sneaky upside if the game turns into a high-scoring affair.

  • Jameis Winston Throws For 222 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston finished 19-for-35 for 222 yards and one touchdown along with eight rushes for 40 yards in Monday's win over the Seahawks. Winston hasn't been as generous with his picks (13 touchdowns to three picks on the season) but he also hasn't been explosive. The QB's highest yardage total this season has been 279. Based on his stats this season and his role on a low-powered offense, Winston doesn't merit much fantasy value going forward.

  • Jameis Winston - Week 7 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston is a QB2, at best, in Week 7 on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks. The QB is coming off a decent game in Week 5 in which he threw for 279 yards and four scores. Nevertheless, the 27-year-old has been streaky this season, which reflects his entire NFL career. The problem with Winston as a fantasy player is you don't know which version you will get any given week. The Seahawks are average against fantasy quarterbacks, so Winston is certainly in the streaming tier if you need options with bye weeks hitting hard this week. Just be aware of the risk/reward that comes with playing a QB that can be streaky.

  • Jameis Winston - Week 5 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston is not a strong starting option against Washington in Week 5. The QB has managed less than 200 yards in three of four games and hasn't been as explosive overall. While it's encouraging the former Buccaneer has cut down on the turnovers with eight touchdowns to two picks, it's worth noting five of those touchdowns came in Week 1. Even against a Washington team that is a favorable matchup for fantasy QBs, Winston should not be trusted given his pedestrian weekly numbers.

  • Jameis Winston Throws One Touchdown In Overtime Loss

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston completed 17 of 23 passing attempts for 226 yards and one touchdown in a 27-21 overtime loss to the Giants. Winston was both accurate and aggressive, posting his highest yards per attempt and second-highest completion percentage, but the numbers were a bit muted given New Orleans' balanced attack. The Saints have yet to turn Winston loose, as his 23 passing attempts from Sunday are the most he's thrown through four weeks. However, Winston's arm could be needed more than usual in Week 5 against a Washington Football Team that has averaged 28.3 points per game since Taylor Heinicke took over the quarterback duties.

  • Jameis Winston Tough To Trust In Week 4

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston will take on the Giants in Week 4. Winston has thrown for 387 yards with seven touchdowns, two interceptions, and a rushing score through three weeks of play, though five of those passing scores came in a very efficient Week 1 effort. Also, it's become clear that head coach Sean Payton wants to have a more run-heavy approach in the post-Drew Brees era, as his gunslinging quarterback ranks just 29th in the league in passing attempts. That limits Winston's fantasy upside unless the Saints have to play from behind or he rediscovers his Week 1 efficiency. The 0-3 Giants haven't been as stout as last year's unit against the pass, but the Saints figure to lean on the ground game in Week 4. Winston is an unappealing Week 4 option, even in 2QB formats.

  • Terron Armstead To Miss Several Weeks With Elbow Injury

    New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Terron Armstead (elbow) will miss several weeks with an elbow injury, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. It's undoubtedly another blow to a Saints offensive line already down Erik McCoy (calf)- though it's a relief to hear that Armstead, whose injury was feared to be season-ending, will be able to return this season. The Pro Bowl left tackle has routinely graded out as one of Pro Football Focus' best blindside protectors in each of the last three seasons. It doesn't change any of the Saints' major fantasy players too much, as New Orleans is laden with depth on the offensive line. In the worst-case scenario, Jameis Winston will be facing pressure a bit more, which could potentially result in more check-downs to halfback Alvin Kamara.

  • Jameis Winston Goes For 128 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston finished Sunday's win over New England by going 13-for-21 for 128 yards and two touchdowns. Winston hasn't thrown for more than 148 yards in any game this season and has been inconsistent overall thus far. Because the QB is only putting up modest numbers each week, it will be hard to trust him as a fantasy starter going forward when there are other QBs who are more capable of stuffing the stat sheet. As a result, Winston should remain on waivers.

  • Jameis Winston Not A Worthy Starter Against Patriots

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston is not a viable starter against the Patriots in Week 3. Winston has started off the season in no other matter than he's always shown, which is inconsistent. After throwing fives scores in the season opener, the QB followed it up in Week 2 with no touchdowns and two picks. This type of inconsistency plagued the 27-year-old's tenure in Tampa. New England offers a favorable matchup for QBs, but it's hard to trust Winston as it's difficult to tell which version of him will show up.

  • Jameis Winston Intercepted Twice In Ugly Loss

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston completed 11 of 22 passes for 111 yards, a rushing score, and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina. Winston struggled all day against the Panthers' underrated defense, which chased him for four sacks and the two picks. The gunslinger didn't have much time to look downfield, as he was pressured on 18 of his 28 dropbacks, though he didn't do himself any favors. Winston and the Saints are better than what they showed in Week 2- but it won't get any easier in Week 3 against Bill Belichick and the Patriots defense.

  • Jameis Winston A Low-End QB1 Against Panthers

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston draws a favorable matchup in Week 2 against the Panthers as he attempts to follow up his five-touchdown performance from Week 1. Winston diced up the Packers secondary, a unit that allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to signal-callers, for five scores, adding 37 yards with his legs, and will get to face a Carolina defense that surrendered the eighth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2020. It's tough to completely trust the former number-one overall pick for fantasy purposes given his turnover-filled past, though there's a chance that head coach Sean Payton has already helped Winston find a better version of himself. Fantasy managers can turn to Winston for low-end QB1 production in Week 2.

  • Jameis Winston Tosses Five Touchdowns

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston went 14-for-20 for 148 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's dominating win over the Packers. Winston looked sharp in his first regular-season action since 2019. The QB who is normally known for picks went flawless in that department and that was an encouraging start to his Saints debut. As long as Winston can make the most of the team's limited weapons, he should certainly remain in the fantasy conversation, though not as a weekly starter until we see a bigger sample size in which he performs well. Up next is a matchup against the division rival Panthers.

  • Jameis Winston Draws Tough Matchup In Week 1

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston draws a tough matchup from the get-go against the Packers in Week 1 in Jacksonville. Winston won the starting QB job over Taysom Hill this preseason and will now aim to prove he's the right fit for the Saints for the coming years. The QB last started with the Bucs in 2019 where he infamously threw for 30 touchdowns and 30 picks. This time around, he won't have too many reliable weapons as Michael Thomas is out for the beginning of the season after ankle surgery in June. The Packers allowed the fourth-fewest points to QBs last season, so Winston is better left on the bench for this week.

  • Can Packers Defense Create Week 1 Turnovers?

    The Green Bay Packers defense will take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. The Packers defense finished off last season playing excellent football, allowing only three passing touchdowns with four interceptions over their final six games. The Saints were very strong last season in regards to limiting turnovers and dishing out fantasy points to opposing defenses. But now they have Jameis Winston under center and the last time Winston was a full-time starter he threw 30 interceptions. The Packers will have to stop the run to be successful in Week 1 but have top-10 potential as a defense if they can create some turnovers.
