Week 9 vs New York Giants
Passing: 247 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT
Rushing: 24 yards, 1 TD, 0 Fumbles Lost
Total Points: 18 pts
For the third time in the 2015 season, Winston finished in the top-15 of all quarterbacks in fantasy and for the fifth time the Bucs lost.
The theme of the week was once again centered on the youthful Bucs’ inability to put the ball in the end zone as the team finished four drives with three field goals and just one with a touchdown.
Meanwhile the Giants scored three touchdowns, including a garbage time TD at the end of the game, and ultimately beat Tampa Bay by a score of 32-18.
While the loss was certainly painful for real life Bucs’ fans, fantasy owners began to take notice as the rookie notched his seventh game with over 200 yards passing and scored at least one touchdown in each of his first eight games.
