8. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers (Sleeper)
Let’s not sugarcoat this, things got ugly for Winston last season. He only started nine games, in part because he began the season with a suspension but also because he couldn’t outplay Ryan Fitzpatrick. He certainly seems to have regressed some in his four NFL seasons. Questions about turnovers and his maturity linger as well.
That being said, the guy had over 4,000 yards passing and at least 22 touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons. He also ran for six more touchdowns during his rookie year. The hope for both the Bucs and fantasy owners is that Bruce Arians can get Winston back on the right track. Arians knows what he’s doing and the Bucs have some great receiving targets. The risk is admittedly high, but Winston’s fantasy upside in what is a make-or-break year for him is also high if you want to wait until the later rounds to pick a quarterback.
