After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Wednesday their plans to bench quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie third-round pick Mike Glennon, Freeman felt he had no other choice than to drop himself from his fantasy football roster. Freeman, who picked up Freeman in the 15th round in hopes he could produce some points during starting quarterback’s Matt Ryan’s bye week, expressed regret that his gamble to pick up the struggling 25-year-old QB didn’t pay off.
“It was a tough decision, but sometimes you have to ignore your heart and set your roster using your brains. Getting attached to a bench player is a surefire way to miss the playoffs. Once I saw ESPN projecting zero points for Freeman, I knew it was time to let him go,” Freeman told reporters while scouring the waiver wire of his 12-team league “Worth A Million Buccs.”
As of press time, Freeman was deciding between adding either Terrelle Pryor or Alex Smith to his sixth place team, “Morgan Joshing Freeman,” though if neither clear waivers he admitted that he might take a flyer on Glennon.
