FF Today's Take:Coleman will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury leaving Devonta Freeman and Terron Ward to handle running back duties. Freeman should handle 70 percent of the RB workload Thursday against the Bucs. Rookie Austin Hooper will start at TE.
Tevin Coleman misses practice Wednesday-- Wed Oct 26 12:30 pm --
FF Today's Take:The Falcons signed Stevan Ridley this week which is an indication that they don't expect Coleman to play against the Packers. Expect a heavy dose of Devonta Freeman against a Packers defense that's given up the fewest fantasy points to the running back position.
Tevin Coleman expected to miss time-- Mon Oct 24 5:40 pm --
Dan Quinn said he'll know more about Tevin Coleman's hamstring strain in the next couple days, but the Atlanta Falcons coach sounded prepared to make a roster move in case the running back is sidelined for any period of time. Coleman played 14 snaps in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the San Diego Chargers before exiting. He scored on a 30-yard burst and had 74 combined yards on nine touches.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Devonta Freeman should slide into more of a feature-back role, while Terron Ward is expected to be promoted from the practice squad. Freeman was already a top-10 fantasy back sharing touches, so the next 1-2 weeks (presumably) may allow him to push 25 touches. The bad news is Atlanta's schedule may not cooperate, as Green Bay, Tampa Bay and Philadelphia await before the Falcons' Week 11 bye.
