2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
As expected, Devonta Freeman's workload and production decreased in 2016 due to the presence of Tevin Coleman in the Falcons' RBBC. What wasn't expected was that Freeman still managed to be a top ten fantasy running back. The Falcons finished the 2016 regular season placing fifth in yards per carry (4.6) and yards per game (120.5) despite ranking only twelfth in rushing attempts per game (26.3). It's no wonder that the efficient work of Atlanta's ground game made them one of only four teams to score 20 rushing touchdowns. The lead dog in Atlanta has now posted back-to-back years with double digit touchdowns. Excluding his six-carry performance of Week 14 as an outlier, Freeman notched 7.95 fantasy points per game (standard scoring) in the seven regular season games he failed to score last season. Then again, when Freeman wasn't being asked to run the ball into the end zone he was being targeted in the passing game (17 red zone targets in 2016). After riding the ground game all the way to the Super Bowl, the Falcons only have more reason to let their horses run wild this year. Freeman's high ceiling, high floor and ability to be a RB1 despite being in a RBBC make him a sound investment at the back end of the first round.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Freeman clears concussion protocol
Falcons running back set to return after two games
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 29, 9:59 am

Atlanta Falcons
Devonta Freeman (concussion) has cleared protocol and returned to practice Wednesday, head coach Dan Quinn announced while making an apparance on 92.9 WZGC-FM. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: After two long weeks, it looks like Devonta Freeman's fantasy owners will have their lead rusher available for Week 13. Freeman's return means Tevin Coleman's run as the primary ball carrier will come to an end making him a Flex option moving forward.


Injury Freeman ruled out, Coleman expected to start
Freeman to miss second game with concussion

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out this Sunday against the #Bucs (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This will be the second straight game Freeman has missed due to a concussion. In last week's game Tevin Coleman got the start rushing for 43 yards on 20 attempts with 1 TD. The Buccaneers have allowed the 10th most fantasy points to running backs. Terron Ward will backup Coleman.


Injury Devonta Freeman logs limited practice Thursday
RB still in concussion protocol

FFToday's Take: Given the fact he is recovering from his second concussion in four months, it seems likely he'll be held out another week. With that said, getting in a limited session Thursday does leave the door open for him to return for Week 12 versus the Tampa Bay Bucs. If he goes, he's a high-end RB2 and Tevin Coleman will be a high-upside flex. If Freeman doesn't play, Tevin Coleman is a solid RB2 option.


Injury Devonta Freeman not practicing
Still in concussion protocol
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 22, 12:40 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said that Freeman remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and won't practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. It appears Freeman hasn't made much notable progress in his recovery since entering the protocol following his early departure in the first quarter of the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Cowboys. (CBSSports.com)

FFToday's Take: Devonta Freeman reportedly feels good enough to play but he will first need to clear protocol before fantasy owners can pencil him into their week 12 lineups. Consider him day-to-day and monitor his status heading into the weekend. Tevin Coleman will continue to see extra reps in practice and would be in line for another start should Freeman remain sidelined.


Injury Devonta Freeman unlikely to play Week 11
Second concussion of the season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 13, 10:10 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is unlikely to play next Monday night at Seattle against Seahawks after suffering his second concussion of his season, per @mortreport and me. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Freeman left early in Week 10 with a concussion after just two carries and 3 yards. His absence will mean more work for Tevin Coleman against the Seahawks with Terron Ward soaking up backup duties. Ward saw 9 carries against the Cowboys in Week 10.


Injury Devonta Freeman nursing shoulder injury
Expected to be limited in practice to begin Week 9
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 30, 4:15 pm

Atlanta Falcons
On a third-down play with a little more than five minutes to play in Sunday’s game against the Jets, Falcons QB Matt Ryan tried a pass to RB Devonta Freeman that went incomplete. Per multiple reports from his press conference, Quinn confirmed Freeman was getting his shoulder checked out and said that the running back is expected to be limited in Wednesday’s practice. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: This doesn't appear to be a serious injury, so owners can pencil him into their lineups for Week 9 for now. Of greater concern for owners is the fact he is seeing 11 carries per game and has been held out of the end zone in every game since the Week 5 bye after averaging 17.5 carries and scoring in every game before it. Business should start picking up soon, but owners need to consider him a RB2 until Atlanta gets its sputtering offense back on track.
