Falcons | Devonta Freeman runs for 68 yards

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:01:18 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed nine times for 68 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 11 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: It was Freeman's first game of the season without a touchdown run, as he has managed five scores in his first four outings. He'll look to get back into the end zone in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots on the road.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman finds end zone

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:33:56 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 at Chicago and he added two receptions for two yards on his only two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman didn't do much for his fantasy owners against a surprisingly stingy Chicago rush defense, but at least he salvaged the stat line with the rushing score. He faces another tough matchup when Green Bay invades Atlanta's new stadium for Sunday Night Football in Week 2.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman out of concussion protocol

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 10:55:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is no longer in the concussion protocol and has been fully cleared to return to practice.

Fantasy Tip: It may have taken longer for him to return that owners would have liked, but the Falcons were always going to be cautious with their new $8 million man at running back. Owners should consider him a high-end RB1 in drafts and a very good play in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman to return to limited practice

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 12:02:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is expected to participate in individual drills beginning Monday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have absolutely no reason to rush back the runner they just signed to an extension worth over $8 million per year, and it appears as if he is very much on track to play in the season opener against the Chicago Bears. Freeman is a high-end RB1 in all formats.
