Josh Freeman completed 18-of-30 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns, also scrambling five times for 22 yards, as the Buccaneers took down the Raiders 42-32 in Week 9.

Tampa Bay Bucs: Fantasy juggernaut? Freeman's accuracy and mechanics remain major works in progress, but he's on fire throwing 50:50 balls downfield to his big vertical receivers. Red-hot Doug Martin is also giving Freeman a wide-open field off play action. Freeman, at the halfway point, is on pace for career highs in passing yards (4,094), TD-to-INT ratio (32:10), and yards per pass attempt (8.09). The Bucs appear to have genuinely hit a groove on offense, and Freeman will be difficult to keep out of QB1 slots in a Week 10 home date with San Diego.
