|There werenít many worries with Freeman entering last season after he had an outstanding year in 2010 with 3,451 yards and 26 touchdowns with just six interceptions. Unfortunately for Freeman owners he slumped badly in 2011 – his interceptions skyrocketing to 22 as he was victimized by his own poor decision-making and the sophomore slump that wide receiver Mike Williams experienced. Not helping matters was the teamís other sophomore receiver, Arrelious Benn, failed to develop. While Freeman clearly slumped on the field, his fantasy production actually went up 0.1 PPG to 19.4, padded by his four rushing touchdowns. There appears to be bright skies ahead for Freeman with the arrival of former Charger Vincent Jackson. Jacksonís presence will allow Williams to slide into more of a secondary role and provide Freeman with his first true established deep threat at wide receiver. Freeman ranks as a mid-tier fantasy backup with considerable upside in 2012.
|Josh Freeman waived by Giants -- Sat May 31 7:25 pm --|
Former Bucs QB last about six weeks with team
|The Giants are only three days into OTAs and already the backup quarterback position is taking shape, without Josh Freeman in the picture. Freeman, a first-round pick by the Bucs in 2009, was waived on Friday, ending his six-week tenure with the team.
On one occasion when Freeman did get on the field during Thursday's OTAs, the Giants were unable to get aligned properly and never ran a play. Freeman was immediately pulled in favor of Curtis Painter. (Newark Star-Ledger)|
FF Today's Take: The end may be near for the 26-year-old Freeman, who is only two years removed from throwing 27 touchdown passes and posted a 25:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his second year in the league. Given his relative youth and past production, it is likely he will get at least one more chance, but questions about his off-field and work ethic habits are starting to catch up to him.
