Schefter: Buccaneers' Jameis Winston to be suspended 3 games for Uber incident

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will be suspended three games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

What It Means:

Schefter's colleague, ESPN Tallahassee radio host Jeff Cameron, reported Wednesday night that Winston was expecting a suspension but that it would likely be only 1 game. Winston is alleged to have groped an Uber driver, and even though he was never charged with a crime, the NFL has proven they won't hesitate taking these sorts of matters into their own hands. Ryan Fitzpatrick is second at quarterback on the Buccaneers' depth chart.

Prior to this report, numberFire's models projected Jameis to throw for 4,177 passing yards, 26.43 touchdowns, and 15.8 interceptions in 2018, with an additional 160.3 yards and 1.76 scores on the ground. He was the QB18 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
