Jameis Winston won the quarterback competition against Taysom Hill in 2021 but was handled with kid gloves, only throwing 25.2 times per game in the first six games of the season before tearing his ACL in game seven. The Saints lacked weapons with Michael Thomas missing the season and called the most designed runs per game (30.6) in the league in 2021. Winston averaged 20.6 fantasy points per game in his first six games, good for QB19 in points per game, and did so on the 29th most attempts. Winston also had an unsustainably high 8.7% touchdown rate. This combination of factors gives Winston a wide range of outcomes. In his career, Winston is 80th percentile in passing points per dropback (0.41), so a heavy volume increase will be necessary for him to be a meaningful contributor. The return of Michael Thomas along with potentially wide receiver help in the draft could help Winston's volume in 2022.
