Buccaneers Fantasy Recap: Jameis Winston
Week 11 @ Philadelphia Eagles
Passing: 246 yards, 5 TD, 0 INT
Rushing: 0 yards, 0 TD, 0 Fumbles Lost
Total Points: 30 pts
Going up against the NFL’s 5th worst passing defense proved to be just what Winston needed to get him into the top-5 of fantasy scoring among quarterbacks.
While many saw him as a sleeper he delivered greatly by turning in 30 points and being outscored by only Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.
While he still hadn’t cracked the 300 yard mark on the year, the win was the team’s first back-to-back wins in years and kept playoff aspirations alive in Tampa.
Five touchdowns would be the most Winston would throw in a single game for 2015, and he spread the wealth by connecting with five different receivers on scoring plays.
Finished Right Below: Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers
Finished Right Above: Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks
