Jameis Winston completed 15-of-30 passes for 279 yards and four touchdowns in the Saints' Week 5 win against Washington. Winston added 26 yards on six rushes against a Washington defense that lacked effort throughout the game. When he wasn't being scolded by head coach Sean Payton on the sideline, Winston was hitting big downfield plays, including a 72-yard TD to Deonte Harris and a Hail Mary completion as time expired in the first half. He averaged 18.6 yards per completion against a Football Team secondary that seemed confused in basic coverage situations. Winston hasn't been a reliable fantasy option this year, but getting Michael Thomas back from IR in the coming weeks should be a boon for the volatile passer.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Russell Wilson (finger) could return from injured reserve when first eligible. Wilson is expected to have the pins removed from his finger within the next week. Returning in Week 10 was always the hope for Wilson and his rehab looks to have progressed on schedule. Wilson went through a walkthrough before Sunday's game and has worked off to the side at Seahawks practice. Geno Smith will make at least two more starts before Seattle gets Wilson back.
