Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:07:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tevin Coleman will start at running back in Freeman's absence. This is his time to prove he deserves to start in the regular season over Freeman. Coleman should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3. Freeman is in RB3 to RB4 territory in PPR leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman sitting

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:51:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) and RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The team has not named a starting running back at this point, so Freeman and Coleman will use the rest of the preseason to compete for the starting job. Both running backs should see solid playing time this season. Owners may consider selecting the starting running back in the middle rounds with the other back being a late-round option.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is questionable to play in a preseason game against the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should split carries with Tevin Coleman this year, and while Coleman has the higher long-term upside, Freeman is still worth drafting as a low-end RB3.
