Drafted #1 overall to inherit a 2-14 team and turn them around could prove to be a difficult task. At just 22 years old, Jameis Winston is already proving that he’s more than capable of making that happen. Winston is the 2nd youngest player in the league, younger even than rookies Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott. Yet, in his 2nd season, it seems our ship is finally headed in the right direction.
In his rookie season, Winston finished with a 58.3 completion percentage, 4,042 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. While it seemed like he was having a setback early this season, he’s actually setting himself up to have a much better season statistically.
He’s on pace to break 4,000 yards in back to back seasons. His completion percentage is up to 61.7 right now. With 4 games still left to play he already has 1 more touchdown than last seasons total, and 2/3 of his interceptions came in 2 rough games in the beginning of the year.
