Falcons | Devonta Freeman scores pair of TDs

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 21:47:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hip) carried 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers, and he added four grabs for 23 yards and a score on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman was battling a hip pointer going into play, and he was spelled by Terron Ward maybe a little more than he normally would have been if 100 percent healthy. With Tevin Coleman on the shelf Freeman remains a must-start fantasy option across the board as long as he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Freeman's status over the next few days. He'll be Atlanta's go-to guy in the backfield this week if he does play with Tevin Coleman likely sidelined. If Freeman is good to go, he's an RB1 even in a tough matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 15 times for 58 yards in the Week 7 game against the San Diego Chargers and he added five receptions for 42 yards on six targets.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman could shoulder load

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 21:44:48 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman might be counted upon to carry more of the load in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos if RB Tevin Coleman (illness) is unable to play or limited due to sickle cell trait.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman might be monitored and limited, so Freeman could see a lion's share of the offensive touches at tailback. It's unfortunate for Coleman, as he is risking illness by playing, and you hate to take advantage for fantasy purposes. But Freeman might see a bump in fantasy appeal as a result.
