Schaub is a better QB in reality than fantasy. He manages the game, and converts key 3rd Downs. What he does not do, is put up any shootouts. The Texans win with their running game, to set up the playaction. While Hopkins may be the answer to the #2 WR role, the Texans do not throw the ball more than 30 Times a game.Freeman is in a contract season. He also has an ELITE defense behind him for the first time in his career. This is Josh's best chance to earn a HUGE payday. Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are two great HR WRs and Doug Martin demands everyone's attention. Big season for the Bucs in 2013.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Schaub quietly puts up nearly 4,000 yards every season. He's nowhere near Brady or Peyton, but he's steady and won't murder you with mistakes. Problem is, the Texans run the ball so much these days that Schaub doesn't really have the opportunities to put up big-time numbers anymore.Freeman got off to a great start last season, as he had 18 TD passes and just five picks through the first nine games of the year. Then, he completely tanked to finish the year, and the Bucs' playoff odds did so along with him. Where's the 2010 Josh Freeman that threw just six INTs all year?  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Finally gets an impact receiver across from Andre JohnsonFresh off of a 4,000 yard, 27 TD season being ranked this low is a testament to strength at the QB position  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
San Diego gave up the 11th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 18.5.New York Jets gave up the 8th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 14.1.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Chargers could be tough on the road and Schaub is pretty inconsistent.Tough road matchup to get things going. Not a big fan of Freeman to begin with, so don't love him here.
