Free-agent QB Jameis Winston (Buccaneers) on Saturday, March 21, posted a farewell tweet to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the city of Tampa. 'It's been a great 5 seasons as a Buccaneer. All love and respect, I love Tampa and I look forward to seeing y'all again in February,' Winston wrote on Twitter.
Huddle Up: Winston's five-year run with the Bucs produced 131 total touchdowns but also 111 total turnovers, including 88 interceptions. It remains to be seen where Winston lands, and the viable starting opportunities are starting to dry up.

Free-agent QB Jameis Winston (Buccaneers) is 'unlikely' to be a target of the New England Patriots, according to a high-ranking team official Friday, March 20.
Huddle Up: It makes sense for Patriots head coach Bill Belichick to want to avoid Winston's high-risk style of play. While Winston has been of the more productive fantasy quarterbacks in recent years, his interceptions are much more costly to real NFL teams than they are to fantasy managers. Even if he were to latch on in New England, his fantasy appeal would drop without the services of elite wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Jameis Winston is unlikely to re-sign with the Buccaneers, in the opinion of MMQB's Peter King.
Huddle Up: King also opines that Winston isn't likely to be a starter if he leaves Tampa. That would obviously kill his fantasy value. It should be an interesting free-agent period, and Winston could be a low-end QB1 or not worth rostering.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) underwent surgery on a torn meniscus after the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Winston could be limited during offseason workouts since he is recovering from multiple injuries but will be fine for the 2020 season. It is not known if he will return to the Bucs or will be playing with a new team. He is a risky option because of his turnovers, but he can be considered at least a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston, a pending free agent, could be offered a two-year deal by the Buccaneers with the first year guaranteed and the second year being a team option, according to sources. The first year would pay Winston roughly the same as a franchise tag ($27 million).
Huddle Up: Winston threw for a career-high 5,109 yards, 33 TDs last season -- and yes, 30 interceptions -- to finish as a top-five fantasy QB for the first time in five seasons. A return to the Bucs would definitely keep him in the QB1 conversation, but a move to another team would necessitate a full re-evaluation of his fantasy status.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to remain an option for the team for the 2020 season at least until the beginning of the legal three-day free-agent tampering period March 16-18, according to head coach Bruce Arians Thursday, Feb. 13. 'Really nothing has changed,' Arians said. 'What's Door No. 2? You know? Can we make the one we have better? All those things you go through right now. ... And then, that's the problem, you get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotonous right now because you don't have any answers.'
Huddle Up: The Buccaneers know what they have in Winston at this point but seem to be willing to entertain available options, should any truly exist. Winston led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards last season, but he also threw a league-high 30 interceptions. Ball control will likely be a big focus of the Bucs' search, but whoever is under center has QB1 potential with WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as their primary targets.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Jameis Winston (eyes) recently underwent Lasik surgery to help improve his eyesight.
Huddle Up: Winston finished the season with 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, so his status with the Bucs is uncertain at this point. He is a valuable fantasy option because of his touchdowns but the interceptions make him a risky starting option. Winston probably will be the starter for a team next season can could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is coming off an up-and-down season in which he hit career highs in yards (5,109) and touchdowns (33) but also interceptions (30), including seven pick-sixes, and former Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said it's time the Bucs and Winston part ways. 'I would be surprised if they pay him,' Dominik told PewterReport.com. 'Maybe they will. It's their decision, but I would be shocked if the Bucs franchised Winston -- or transitioned him. I think the decision they have is certainly difficult because there has been some production there, but I don't know how you could justify paying Jameis Winston more money this year than he made last year.'
Huddle Up: Unless your league deducts heavy penalties for turnovers, Winston was fantasy gold last season, finishing only behind Lamar Jackson in total fantasy points. The interceptions and miscues, though, are a little more unforgivable in real football, and whether or not Winston is retained by the Bucs promises to be one of the most intriguing storylines of the offseason.
