Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
The Buccaneers triggerman compiled career highs in touchdown passes, passing yards and pass attempts last season, but Freeman’s brutal late-season collapse – two touchdown passes and nine picks in three season-ending contests – is still burning in the minds of fantasy owners. Freeman, who is in a contract year, remains the starter, but the fifth-year pro is on the hot seat. The strong-armed Freeman has a great arsenal of weapons – Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams and pass-catching back Doug Martin – so the pieces are in place for him to succeed. However, Freeman has a tendency to lose his confidence if he isn’t playing well. If the Buccaneers decide that Freeman isn’t their franchise quarterback, we could see backup Dan Orlovsky or rookie third-round pick Mike Glennon taking starting snaps later in the season.
