Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
School: Kansas State
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Statistically speaking fantasy football wise, Josh Freeman had his best year yet in the NFL during 2012. The problem is that the NFL is not fantasy football and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not going to sit back and hope that he continues to progress. Rumors are swirling that while Freeman is still considered the future quarterback for the Buccaneers, the timetable is starting to close on some of his believers.
He did surpass 4,000 passing yards and tossed 27 touchdowns but he also had one brutal month of December, when fantasy footballers are counting on their players the most. Look for Freeman to win the job heading into 2013 and produce as a mid-tier QB2 in deeper, fantasy leagues. If one of his go-to receivers falls to injury though, things could get brutal.
