2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
If you had expectations of a leap for Freeman into the elite tier of RBs, 2017 was probably a disappointment and with his lowest fantasy point per game average since becoming the starter, he definitely failed to live up to those lofty goals. But Freeman went a long way in helping his owners win weeks with six double-digit scoring weeks including two weeks over 20 fantasy points. And while weeks 6 through 13, likely upset owners with two missed games and another when he left early, Freeman never really busted when he played. Other than the week he left with an injury, he scored at least 5 fantasy points in every game he started.

Owners who drafted Freeman to be the workhorse anchor to their team almost certainly didn't enjoy his performance, but that has brought his ADP down into the 2nd round which fits his fantasy profile much better. His increased value in PPR leagues is somewhat overstated as his target count has decreased each of the last two seasons, but in both standard and PPR scoring he's a viable RB1 who can now be drafted as RB11 in the middle of the second round. If he's paired with another mid-RB1 or elite WR, he'll likely be perceived as a value as compared to last season.

Uncertain timeline for Devonta Freeman
Missed Week 2 with knee injury

Dan Quinn said he's not sure on the timetable with Devonta Freeman coming off knee injury. (ESPN - Vaughn McClure)

FFToday's Take: About the only thing we know for sure with Freeman right now is that he aggravated the MCL and PCL injury that slowed him down the stretch last year. Owners should probably expect him to miss at least the next two games, while a month-long absence also sounds possible. Tevin Coleman makes for a very serviceable RB2 in the meantime, while Ito Smith appears to have moved into Coleman's old role for now.


Injury Devonta Freeman to miss Week 2
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 14, 11:30 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (sore RIGHT knee) will not play against the Panthers on Sunday, coach Dan Quinn said Friday. Freeman, who suffered a sprained posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee in the regular-season final against Carolina, was slowed in the playoffs. He didn’t have offseason surgery and was hit on the same knee late in the season opener against Philadelphia. He was pulled from the game and didn’t practice at all this week. (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: This could be an issue for Freeman past Week 2 even though there is nothing structurally wrong with his knee but for the time being, Tevin Coleman will operate as the Falcons lead back and should flirt with 20 touches against the Panthers making him a solid RB2.


Injury Freeman misses practice Thursday
Tevin Coleman could carry the load
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 13, 11:46 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (sore knee) will be held out of practice on Thursday, according to coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons are preparing for running back Tevin Coleman to carry most of the load. If Freeman can’t play, he’ll be backed up by Ito Smith. (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Freeman is trending towards being inactive this week after suffering a knee injury in Week 1. Coleman would be solid RB2 against the Panthers if Freeman does sit. In three games last season operating as the lead back, Coleman racked up 21, 21, and 19 touches.


Injury Devonta Freeman misses practice Wednesday
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 12, 2:00 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who was hit late in the Eagles’ game and has a sore knee, will be held out of practice Wednesday, according to coach Dan Quinn. “Free is sore and we’ll hold him from practice today,” Quinn said. “He got hit in the game, but nothing that’s more than we can treated it goes from day to day. Freeman played 39 of 70 offensive snaps (56 percent), while Tevin Coleman played 36 of 70 snaps (51 percent). (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: This doesn't appear to be a serious injury but we'll have to monitor Freeman's practice reports throughout the week. Tevin Coleman would see increased usage if Freeman were to miss Week 2 against the Panthers. Running back Brian Hill as added from the practice squad.
