Falcons | Devonta Freeman almost ready

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 10:51:38 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is in the final stages of the concussion protocol, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: There has generally been little concern about Freeman's ability to be ready for the start of the season, and this falls in line with the news that has been coming out of Atlanta. A strong case can be made for Freeman to be the third running back off the board in fantasy drafts as the only player to rush for at least 1,000 yards and score at least 10 touchdowns in each of the last two seasons.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman will rest against Steelers

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 12:12:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) will not play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Aug. 20. Head coach Dan Quinn said Freeman's condition is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: There have been no indications Freeman will much more time. Since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension announcement, there has been some debate as to what running back should be the next one off the board after David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell. Freeman is as good a candidate as any, as he is the only back over the last two seasons to rush for over 1,000 yards and score at least 10 touchdowns both years. The fact he adds 50-plus receptions makes him a rock-solid RB1.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman could return soon

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:04:53 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is expected to go through the concussion protocol over the next few days and could return to practice soon, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons should take things slow with Freeman and make sure he is ready for Week 1. Freeman recorded 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and will continue to be a focal point on offense in 2017. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) was out of practice Monday, Aug. 14, and he is in the concussion protocol. He has been ruled out for the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: He left practice Sunday due to heat-related symptoms, but it appears the situation was worse than expected. He still has plenty of time to be ready for the season, and he remains a high-end RB1 in fantasy.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman in class of his own

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 21:33:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is the only running back to have logged at least 1,000 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground in each of the past two seasons.

Fantasy Tip: After a rookie season to forget in 2014, Freeman broke out in a big way in his sophomore campaign and hasn't looked back, proving to be one of the top running backs in all of fantasy. Although Atlanta has a very capable No. 2 running back in Tevin Coleman, Freeman is still someone worth building your fantasy ground game around, and should be targeted early for plenty of reasons.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman lands extension

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 06:10:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman agreed to a five-year, $41.25 million contract Wednesday, Aug. 9, which makes him the highest-paid running back in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is also one of the top backs in fantasy. His 4.8 yards per carry was nearly a full yard improvement from the previous year. There is a little left to be desired in his 1,079 rushing yards, but his usage is tapered by Tevin Coleman's presence. Freeman is a pretty safe RB1

Falcons | Devonta Freeman discussing extension

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 13:21:29 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is talking with the Falcons about a possible five-year contract extension that would make him one of the highest paid running backs in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: The two sides likely will talk during camp in hopes of reaching a contract extension. Freeman will receive most of the carries this season and is coming off a 2016 season where he posted 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is part of one of the best offenses in the NFL and can be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman reports to camp

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 13:50:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman reported on time to training camp Wednesday, July 26, despite not yet receiving a new deal.

Fantasy Tip: There doesn't seem to be any panic from either side. Expect a deal to be done in the not-too-distant future. Freeman has turned into one of the most versatile running backs in the game and easily has RB1 upside with added value in PPR formats.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman to get deal before camp?

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 16:22:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said he would be happy if the team signed RB Devonta Freeman to a contract extension before the start of training camp Thursday, July 27, but will not worry if the negotiations continue during camp.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has a good chance of receiving an extension at some point before the start of regular season, so owners should monitor the situation. He will continue to share time with Tevon Coleman at running back but will see most of the carries. He rushed for 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2016 and should be a solid No. 1 running back for fantasy owners.
