Josh Freeman Fantasy Projection: Tampa Quarterback Looks To Outshine Rookie Cam Newton

Quarterback Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7) look to keep the Carolina Panthers (3-8) in the NFC South cellar when they face off Sunday afternoon at Raymond James Stadium.

The fantasy football projection site numberFire ranks Freeman as just the 16th best option at quarterback this weekend. The Tampa Bay QB's projected stats: 20.58/32.72, 233.68 yds, 1.22 TDs, 1.00 INTs for 14.14 points.

Freeman has thrown for 2,715 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, while also tossing 16 picks. He struggled in last weekend's23-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans, throwing one interception and also losing a fumble. Freeman has thrown six fourth quarter interceptions this year. His thumb injury, either the sprain he suffered in a loss to the Chicago Bears or the cut he suffered shooting guns, has certainly hampered the Tampa quarterback's season.
