Jameis Winston deals the same thumb injury as he had last week in the Buccaneers vs. Game. Saturday’s Texans. It didn’t cause any problems last week, it probably promoted many football owners to league games. Is there any reason to worry about starting your own QB, making an ’em decision in Week 16 if you have Winston? The official active / inactive report drops around 11:30 am. on Saturday, and we’ll have updates in the coming time.

WEEK 16 RATING NO PRESENCE:

Jameis Winston playing Saturday at Week 16?
Winston had no problem playing through the fractured hair on his right thumb in Week 15, destroying the Lions for passing yards and four touchdowns. After a similar routine to last week, Winston did not throw on Tuesday and then saw throwing tennis balls on Wednesday. Assuming his progress is the same as last week, it would be good to play Saturday at 1pm. ET vs. Houston.

There were no comments from Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians pointing otherwise. If Winston were out, Ryan Griffin would have started in place and fantasy owners would want to look elsewhere for a streaming option.

Assuming Winston plays, it’s basically a start through a tough final stretch in season. The Texans have allowed the third fantasy scenario to reach the fighters in 2019. You need not worry too much about Mike Evans’ absence and Chris Godwin’s possible absence. Winston threw three of his touchdowns last week to Breshad Perriman and will have the SPARQ Justin Watson test, with his two tight ends, to seal the ball on the field by Saturday.
