Josh Freeman keeps touchdowns coming for fantasy owners in Week 8

Adam Bettcher

Josh Freeman threw three touchdown passes for the third week in a row. We break down the fantasy implications.

Josh Freeman completed 19 of 36 passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers on Thursday night against the Vikings. His accuracy was a bit erratic at times, but he came up big when the Buccaneers needed him.

Doug Martin dominated on the ground for Tampa, so Freeman didn't have much pressure on him heading down the stretch.

Fantasy Impact: This is three weeks in a row now with three touchdowns. Are you starting to buy into Freeman's fantasy value? The Bucs play a few terrible secondaries coming up, so Freeman should continue to be worth a start going forward.

Next week, Tampa travels to west to face Oakland, a team that ranks 22nd against the passing game. Here's another matchup you can exploit with Freeman.
