Falcons | Devonta Freeman may be ready for workouts

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 13:17:19 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) said he could be ready for the start of offseason workouts but wants to be completely healthy before he returns so he does not have to deal with the injury during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman probably will participate in some offseason workouts and should be 100 percent for training camp. He likely will continue to see most of the work at running back and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back even with Tevin Coleman on the roster.

Falcons | Surgery possible for Devonta Freeman?

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 19:25:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) said he played the end of the season with a sprained medial collateral ligament and a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, but he is hoping to avoid offseason surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should enter 2018 as the lead back for Atlanta, but with Tevin Coleman also in the mix, Freeman should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman more involved as receiver

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 16:56:03 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman caught five passes for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13. He also rushed for seven yards on 10 carries during the game.

He also has value in point-per-reception leagues since he recorded 36 catches and 317 receiving yards. He can be at least a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners next season.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) had a limited status in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman limited Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 15:16:08 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's ceiling will always be stinted as long as Tevin Coleman is healthy, but he has proven to be successful nonetheless. The versatile back made up for his paltry 11 carries last week with nine catches for 85 yards. Looking ahead, Freeman is a justifiable second-round fantasy selection with added value in PPR leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman scores in win

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 20:45:48 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 18 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for three yards in a 26-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman didn't have a ton of running room in this one, but the final stat line looks solid thanks to the touchdown. As long as the Falcons remain alive in the playoffs, Freeman will remain one of the stronger fantasy backs.

Falcons | Another limited practice for Devonta Freeman

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 15:30:45 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 4. However, the team declared he'll be all systems go for the team's playoff game Saturday, Jan. 6, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman never really appeared to be in doubt for Atlanta's Wild Card action, but his performance to close out the year might make you think twice about utilizing his services in fantasy this weekend. While the 25-year-old was heavily involved in the passing game in Week 17, he amassed just 59 rushing yards on 22 carries over his final two contests. At the same time, he figures to still be a solid option, as the Rams ranked 28th versus the run this season.
