Falcons | Devonta Freeman sound in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 16:23:24 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards and caught four balls for another 42 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's versatility makes him an every-week start for conventional fantasy purposes. He figures to once again share reps in 2017 with Tevin Coleman and is a reasonable RB1 target for PPR formats.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman with mixed bag against GB

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 07:19:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown with four catches for 23 yards and another touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons were without Tevin Coleman, and it was a close game, but the team kind of gave up on the run. Without those two touchdowns, it would have been a poor fantasy output for Freeman. The Packers have allowed just 11.1 fantasy points per game to RBs in the playoffs and no touchdowns. Freeman has a tough matchup in the NFC title game, but he'll be in the second tier of RBs in playoff pools.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman goes over 100 total yards

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 16:54:56 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman totaled 125 yards in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks, rushing for 45 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and adding four catches for 80 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The rushing line isn't overly impressive, but Freeman did more than enough to make his DFS owners happy, scoring from a yard out in the third quarter. The highlight of his day was a 53-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that set Atlanta up for a field goal on the drive after his score. Freeman will remain a very smart pick in all playoff formats next week regardless of whether the Falcons face the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers.
