Jameis Winston Fantasy Points Surprisingly High After 5 INT Performance Against Panthers in London

Max Staley

Entering Week 6, Jameis Winston was rolling as a fantasy producer. From Week 2-5, Winston was averaging 294.3 passing yards per game, and he tossed 10 TDs compared to just two INTs during that span.

Unfortunately, Winston came back to earth in Week 6, throwing five INTs and losing a fumble.

He only added one passing TD, but did manage to throw for 400 yards as Winston attempted to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers climb out of a 27-10 deficit entering the fourth quarter.

Those six total turnovers really hurt Winston's fantasy production, as he only mustered 12.1 fantasy points in standard leagues, but achieving a double-digit total with that kind of ball security still provides an odd sense of potential. Winston was QB10 entering Week 6, but this poor showing will almost certainly drop him down the leaderboard.

In fact, Winston's five INTs had matched his season total entering this game.

Winston has now thrown 10 INTs on the season, which will likely make him the leader in this category unless Baker Mayfield, who has thrown nine on the season, gets picked off again this afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks.

With Bucs' head coach Bruce Arians calling the shots, and an embarrassment of riches at WR in Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, Winston's fantasy value is sure to bounce back in the coming weeks, though this performance certainly hurt his owners in Week 6.
