Even counting the big guns (Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III), Freeman may have been the best fantasy quarterback of the last month.
Over his last three games, Freeman has thrown for 1,010 yards, nine touchdowns and just one interception. His average fantasy scoring output over that span is a very good 24.7, which compares favorably to Manning (23), Brees (23.7), Brady (21.7), Rodgers (25.3) and RG3 (22.3).
Fantasy owners have taken notice (Freeman owned in 71 percent of ESPN leagues), but for the 29 percent where Freeman is available, it's time to pounce now. He has the weapons at receiver (Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams) and running back (Doug Martin) to keep producing, but his availability will dry up in a hurry over the next few days.
Nab Freeman now, and in the right matchup down the stretch (games at Oakland, San Diego, at New Orleans over final nine), start him with confidence of a big fantasy output.
