QB Josh Freeman (Tampa Bay)
The Buccaneers are an incredibly inconsistent team. It’s no surprise they’re this inconsistent when their quarterback is this inconsistent. It wasn’t just last year. They went 3-13 in 2009, 10-6 in 2010, and then 4-12 in 2011 as Josh Freeman posted 10/18, 25/6, and 16/22 touchdown to interception ratios in those 3 seasons respectively. Last year, he started the year with a 5/4 TD/interception ratio in their first 4 games, then had a 16/3 ratio in their next 6, and then a 5/9 ratio on that 5 game losing streak, before having a decent game against Atlanta. In wins, he had a 97.6 QB rating, which is comparable to Tom Brady’s and Ben Roethlisberger’s. In losses, that rating was 71.4, which is comparable to Chad Henne and Mark Sanchez. He’s an inconsistent QB2, who might not keep his job all season. Look elsewhere.
Projection: 3650 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, 18 interceptions, 200 rushing yards, 1 touchdown (224 pts standard, 268 pts 6 pt td leagues)
