Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman has struggled at times during his team's losing streak and long-yardage situations on third down are part of the reason. The Buccaneers, according to Roy Cummings of The Tampa Tribune, have faced 43 third-down situations the last three games and 31 times the Buccaneers have needed 6 yards or more to get a first down.
Tampa Bay, according to Cummings, has needed an average of 11.2 yards on those 31 third-and-long plays. Freeman threw four interceptions in Week 15 and will look to bounce back on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
Fantasy Impact: Freeman had his worst fantasy performance of the season in Week 15 but figures to be better at home on Sunday against the Rams.
Freeman is a No. 2 fantasy quarterback for Week 16.
