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.
Rivers is going to be in a good downfield passing offense in 2013. DNX (Danario Alexander) and Vincent Brown/Malcolm Floyd make up a great big 3 man WR core. Antonio Gates should have room to roam over the middle. The key though, is this horrible offensive line doing their job. They did not do anything to improve it.

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?
Remember when Rivers was a top-five fantasy QB and a candidate to put up huge numbers each and every week? Hopefully Norv Turner (mercifully) having been canned will reignite Rivers and the Chargers' offense. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a whole lot to work with, so the odds of that seem relatively slim.

Fresh off of a 4,000 yard, 27 TD season being ranked this low is a testament to strength at the QB position
Will quickly learn that Keenan Allen is the best receiver on his team

New York Jets gave up the 8th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 14.1.
Houston gave up the 15th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 17.6.

Faces a beatable Houston secondary but needs to eliminate the bad mistakes.

Tough road matchup to get things going. Not a big fan of Freeman to begin with, so don't love him here.
Rivers could surprise at home, but the matchup isn't great at all.
