Falcons | Matt Ryan throwing with teammates

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 14:07:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is getting together with WR Julio Jones, RB Devonta Freeman and other Falcons for passing sessions this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: It sure doesn't hurt for teammates to practice together well before the season starts. There's no telling how offseason comradery and chemistry can impact players during the regular season. Freeman and Jones should already be considered No. 1 players at their respective positions, while Ryan is in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 12:06:05 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: It is an A+ matchup for Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap), and the back has emerged as an elite option at the position, especially because of his work in the passing game. He posted 35.6 FantasyScore points in his Week 6 meeting with the Saints, and is a lineup building block, if you're spending up at running back.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman, Roddy White limited

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 12:23:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) and WR Roddy White (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) and White should still be able to go in Week 17 despite their limited statuses. They have a tremendous matchup against the New Orleans Saints, who have been the worst fantasy defense versus running backs and the fourth worst fantasy defense against wide receivers. Freeman is definitely worth his FantasyScore price for the last week of the season, while White should be viewed as a flex or WR3.

Falcons | Watch out for Devonta Freeman

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 22:48:50 -0800

In Week 17, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman will face a New Orleans Saints rush defense which has allowed 132.3 yards per game with 12 rushing touchdowns and 17 runs of 20 or more yards, tied for worst in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) burned the Saints for 100 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries while also adding eight reception in Week 6, posting 35.6 FantasyScore points in the process. He needs 20 yards for his first-career 1,000-yard season, and he should have no problem going for at least 80-90 rushing yards with a score.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:36:05 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) should receive a majority of the carries during the game. He has scored a touchdown in each of the last two games but has not averaged more than 3.4 yards per carry in any of his last four games. He will have a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week and could be a solid starting option in most leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman posts good numbers

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 15:50:15 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman ran for 73 yards and scored one touchdown in a 20-13 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has had a season derailed by injuries, but they seem to have cleared and Freeman can finish the year on a strong note. Utilize him with confidence in week 17.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman returns to end zone

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 14:31:54 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 56 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15. It was Freeman's first touchdown since Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has been pretty quiet for the last several games and has gone six games without a 100-yard rushing game. He should continue to receive a majority of the carries for the Falcons but is not a strong option next week since he will be facing the Carolina Panthers.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman mostly bottled up

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 15:47:13 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for just 40 yards in the Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers, and he had three catches for 22 yards with one fumble lost.

Fantasy Tip: The team got away from the run after falling behind, and Freeman's touches were limited. He has been one of the most consistent fantasy threats for Atlanta, but even he cannot be trusted lately.

Falcons | Decent return for Devonta Freeman

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 21:24:53 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) returned from concussion in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he managed just 47 yards on 14 carries. He was able to add 10 receptions for 56 yards on 11 targets.

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Freeman back into the fantasy lineup in all formats, as he did not have any setbacks and was a big threat in the passing game. He faces a Carolina Panthers rush defense which ranks second in the NFL in Week 14.
