As to be expected, New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston's Comeback Player of the Year odds are falling off a cliff after his putrid Week 3 performance.

Winston previously had the second-best odds to win CPOTY in 2022, but he dropped down to fourth-best a week ago.

Now, after Week 3's loss to the Carolina Panthers, Winston has the fifth-best odds according to VegasInsider. Winston's odds to win the award are +1000, tied with fellow Saints player Michael Thomas and Jacksonville Jaguars' James Robinson.

The vibe surrounding Winston in Saints camp is pretty "ugly" right now.

Saints' Jameis Winston keeps driving down his stock in 2022

Winston recorded 353 passing yards and one touchdown against two interceptions against Carolina, only a marginally better stat line compared to his Week 2 performance.

He only got sacked once in Week 3 but was without his top two wideouts, Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry, for some time. NOLA struggled to enjoy even a single quarter of good offense this week, and it's starting to look like the Saints' offensive problems from last year are coming back to haunt the team.

Sitting third in the NFC South with a 1-2 record, the Saints haven't proven they can consistently string together wins, and the passing attack feels just as tame as it was in 2021.

To make matters worse, Alvin Kamara hasn't yet found his groove, and the team's running game as a whole hasn't been effective either.

It's easy to point the finger at Jameis Winston for NOLA's offensive woes in 2022, and until Winston stops throwing picks, that's exactly what people are going to do. Is it Andy Dalton time yet?
