Jameis Winston Signs With the Cleveland Browns to back up Deshaun Watson
4 months ago

The Cleveland Browns have signed free agent quarterback Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston has signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns. One of the best backup quarterbacks in the NFL, Winston is set to hold the clipboard for Deshaun Watson in 2024. While Watson signed a massive contract with Cleveland only two years ago, the pairing hasn’t lived up to expectations so far. He has struggled with injuries and accuracy, leading to speculation about his future.

 

However, make no mistake about it this is still going to be Watson’s team for the foreseeable future. This means that Winston won’t get the chance to compete for a starting opportunity like some places he could have signed. Given Watson’s struggles with injuries last season though it’s no surprise the Browns want insurance at the quarterback position. As a result, Winston should be rostered in all deeper Superflex formats as a player that could be plugged in as a QB2 if Watson were to ever miss time.

With QB Carr Week-to-Week, Winston Expected to Start Week 4
9 months ago

Saints QB Derek Carr is Week to Week with a Sprained AC Joint. Jameis Winston is expected to start Week 4.

The New Orleans Saints Head Coach Dennis Allens says QB Derek Carr is week to week with a sprained AC Joint. The Saints will be cautious with Carr’s injury recovery. The injury occurred during Sunday’s heartbreaking loss to the Green Bay Packers. Carr was slammed to the ground on his right shoulder and immediately removed from the game, He was later taken to the hospital as a precaution and checked for internal injuries. Jamies Winston came in for Carr in the third quarter and went 10 for 16 for 101 yards. Winston led the team into field goal range to win the game but the kicker missed the kick.

Jamies Winston will be the starter in week 4 against his former team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs rank sixth in the league against the pass in this young season. Winston played in three games last season completing 73 of 115 pass attempts for 858 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.

With Carr being week to week, Jameis Winston is worthy of an add in Superflex leagues. He isn’t afraid to chuck the ball and he has some of the best weapons in football with Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, and Rashid Shaheed. The Saint’s next four opponents are vs. Tampa Bay, at New England, at Houston, and vs Jacksonville.
