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.

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.
