Huddle Up: Freeman has failed a pair of opportunities--in Minnesota and New York--since being kicked to the curb by the Buccaneers, and in both situations Freeman's work ethic was called into question. So it's good to see him taking the initiative to do some extra work in hopes of getting another shot at the NFL. Best let him work his way back onto a roster before looking to him for any fantasy assistance.

Huddle Up: The Giants have Eli Manning and a guy behind him in Ryan Nassib that they'd like to develop, so there simply weren't any snaps available for Freeman. He's now two teams removed from being a first-round pick of the Bucs; we'll see if there's another team desperate enough for quarterback help that they're willing to take on a reclamation project like Freeman.

Huddle Up: Freeman only has had 2 seasons out of 5 with a QB rating higher than 75 and more TD passes than interceptions, and is going to have to prove to his third team in 2 seasons that his down times are in the rear-view mirror.

Huddle Up: Freeman is not that far removed from being a decent NFL quarterback, though he lost his job in Tampa Bay last year and flamed out famously in his only action with the Vikings--strangely enough, against the Giants. With Manning slowed during OTAs Freeman should get plenty of reps, and he's at minimum a solid insurance policy and a backup with upside.

Huddle Up: Freeman was thrown into the fire against the Giants without full knowledge of the playbook; he didn't see the field after that, and perhaps his... uh, lack of attention to detail is one of the reasons. Doesn't sound like he's in the Vikings' plans for 2014, which speaks volumes about the former first-rounder as Minnesota has a gaping hole at the position.

Huddle Up: The Vikes apparently don't share the sentiment as the QB has had one start -- his 20-of-53, 190-yard disaster vs. the Giants in Week 7 -- and hasn't sniffed the field since.

Huddle Up: Monte Kiffin's struggling defense has allowed four 400-yard passers through eight games. It's highly doubtful Freeman will make it five on Sunday. The Cowboys' last ranked pass defense gets a break against Minnesota.

Huddle Up: Ponder will be be back in the Vikings' saddle for the first time since Week 3, and while it's nothing to raise a fantasy fuss about, it has to be better news for the Vikes' pass-catchers after Freeman's disaster of a debut on Monday night.

Huddle Up: This is actually a good thing for the offense (not the injury, but the fact Freeman likely won't start), though not by much. Freeman was simply not ready to step in and start after one week of practice.

Huddle Up: Freeman had a disastrous debut to be sure, but the Vikings aren't shelling out $2 mil for only one game. At 1-5, the Vikes aren't going anywhere fast, so they're going to get a long look at what they have.

Huddle Up: Freeman was brutal, on a different page than his receivers and off-target all night, completing only 37.7 percent of his passes. That quashed the fantasy hopes of those starting any of the Minnesota pass-catchers and even RB Adrian Peterson. The Vikings scored their only points on Marcus Sherels' 86-yard first-quarter punt return, but look for the Vikes to write this off as a rough first outing and give Freeman another start or two.

Huddle Up: The Vikings didn't bring Freeman in to be a backup; he'll get a shot at starting, maybe not this week but in the very near future. As for franchising him, if he plays well and turns the Vikings' season around it's possible they could view him as their quarterback of the future and franchise him while working on a long-term deal. However, let's let Freeman take a snap in purple before wondering if the Vikings will commit $15 million to him.

Huddle Up: Freeman has ties to Raiders' offensive coordinator Greg Olson but if he signs in Oakland it will be just to back up Terrelle Pryor for now. Freeman will almost certainly have no fantasy value for the rest of the season.

Huddle Up: It quickly became apparent a divorce was imminent after the Bucs failed to find a trade partner for the former first-round pick. Three teams -- the Browns, Jaguars and Cardinals -- reportedly have said they're not interested, but definitely expect somebody to give the FA Freeman a shot.

Huddle Up: Remember back to Week 12 last season when the Bucs entered a home showdown vs. the Falcons at 6-4 and Freeman was in the midst of a revival season with 21 TDs and 7 interceptions? Wow, how times have changed. Since then, Tampa is 1-9 and Freeman has thrown 8 TDs, 13 picks, lost his starting job and now wants to be released or traded.

Huddle Up: Hmmmm, perhaps this is a reason why we haven't heard about Freeman generating much interest on the trade market.
