2018 Fantasy Football Jameis Winston Player Profile

Jameis Winston Player Profile

If you have decided to peruse quarterback player profiles while waiting for your Uber to arrive, then this fantasy football Jameis Winston player profile should Lyft you up. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts.  When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper.  Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.

When looking at my player profiles, It is important to note that I think quarterback play is replaceable for low-end QB1’s.  So when I evaluate quarterback prospects, I am looking for top-three potential.  This will skew my perspective and analysis.  Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.

Fantasy Football Jameis Winston Overview: Upon first glance, you might wonder why someone would want to draft Jameis Winston.  Over a three year career, his points per game have gone down each year.  It looks like Jameis is getting dumber both on and off the field.  But a closer inspection shows that last year, when Jameis Winston threw the ball more than 30 times per game, he averaged 24.9 points per game.  When he gets to sling it, he produces as well as anyone.

Fantasy Football Jameis Winston Strategy:  The strategy for Jameis is pretty easy.  Draft him late.  His ADP is extremely low for the simple reason that he will miss three games next season.  The fact is, at least a quarter of the players taken before him will also miss at least three games.  Maybe they won’t be suspended, but players miss football games.  At least with Jameis, we know what games he is missing.  I am sure this doesn’t make sense from a science standpoint, but the truth is people are overcompensating for his draft position right now.  For context, the number 22 quarterback is Baker Mayfield, who right now isn’t slated to start any games.

Ceiling: If he throws the ball a lot, Jameis could end the season as a top-five quarterback in the games he plays.  The question is, will he be allowed to?

Floor:  What will actually happen is Jameis, while suspended, will beat a female Uber driver to death with a pair of stolen crab legs, confirming our suspicions that Jameis is incapable of learning from his mistakes.
