Josh Freeman Posts A 3.9 YPA And Isn't A Fantasy Option

Josh Freeman struggles in the loss. We break down the fantasy implications.

Josh Freeman had one of the worst outings of the season with just 110 passing yards on 10-of-28 passing with a TD and a pick.

Analysis: Well, that YPA of 3.9 is in the territory of Brandon Weeden's 3.4 from Week 1. Freeman did throw a TD pass, so his passer rating was at a misleading 45.2. The Cowboys certainly had a little something to do with that since their secondary has been making headlines all season. Freeman has routinely been in the bottom part of the rankings for YPA and he and Vincent Jackson still have some kinks to work out. The only time we would really suggest playing Freeman would be in Week 7 against the Saints for those having bye-week blues.
