Season Outlook

2014 first-overall pick Jameis Winston continued to show flashes of greatness, improving his completion percentage to a cool 60.8 percent of his passes. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken adjusted the 2016 playbook to Winston's ability to throw down the field and throw on the run. Monken threw a lot of intermediate passes in the middle of the field and ran a lot early in the game to set up the play action fakes. It gives Winston the opportunity to let plays develop outside of the pocket. Tampa Bay's hurry up West Coast offense has been kind to Winston, with him racking up 4,090 receiving yards, 28 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. West Coast offense held their own against the elite offensive teams of the NFC South, being outscored by the Falcons' No. 2 offense 67-59 and the Saints' No. 1 offense narrowly outscoring the Bucs 42-40. Winston has the tools to develop into a star and is a low-end QB1 with high upside as a backup or paired with Mike Evans or newly acquired DeSean Jackson. Jackson will join Evans and Adam Humphries as the three starters and Jackson's flashy speed is expected to compliment Evans' possession catching style. Jackson will see plenty of work in the middle of the field and some slot work with the vast amounts of bootlegs and scrambling that head coach when Dirk Koetter and Monken allow Winston to roam freely in the backfield. Evans led the team in receiving yards (1,321) and touchdowns (12) in 2016. He will be drafted in the first couple of rounds while Jackson's value entering training camp is mid-tier, there is still time for him and Winston to muster up some chemistry. RB Doug Martin was dreadful all season long, averaging an abysmal 2.9 yards on 144 rushing attempts. He led the Buccaneers in attempts (144) and touchdowns with three. He's had a rather volatile career with some really good seasons, so he's worth taking a flier on in the middle-rounds.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Jameis Winston

Winston played hurt in 2017, and missed games for the first time in his NFL career last season. Still, he seemed to be trending up last year and owners willing to stomach the three game suspension to open the season could be rewarded. There are plenty of talented pass catchers in Tampa Bay and Dirk Koetter returns despite less than fantastic results. That should at least ensure some level of continuity, which is usually a plus for a young quarterback.
