Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston went 20-for-30 for 249 yards and two touchdowns, along with a team-high 48 rushing yards, Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. But perhaps most importantly he did not turn the ball over for the second straight game, and a third straight start can be booked in Week 14.
The New Orleans Saints have been better lately, allowing zero or one passing touchdown in three of their last four games. But they still entered Week 13 allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (ESPN scoring), and Ryan Fitzpatrick had 417 yards and four touchdowns against them for Tampa Bay way back in Week 1.
Two much tougher matchups are coming for Winston in Week 15 and Week 16, as the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys are both in the top-12 of the league against quarterbacks (ESPN scoring). Then it gets easier again in Week 17, for those who care, with the Atlanta Falcons on the slate.
Winston is a top-flight streamer again in Week 14, and the way he’s playing he’ll still be an option in two-quarterback leagues in the following two weeks.
