Falcons | Devonta Freeman struggles

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 13:10:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for eight yards on five carries in the preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman will be the starting running back this season but is expected to lose some of his work to Tevin Coleman. He likely will be a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues but should be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman efficient Thursday

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 20:28:56 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman had four carries for 42 yards and a touchdown in a 24-13 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is unlikely to repeat his numbers from 2015 unless Tevin Coleman misses time. That being said, Freeman should still be considered a high-end RB2 and a borderline RB1 in PPR formats.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman may receive less touches

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 12:33:14 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman likely will receive less carries in 2016 because running backs coach Bobby Turner believes less work will keep Freeman fresher during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is coming off a solid 2015 season but it appears that he will lose some work to Tevin Coleman this season. He recorded 1,061 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and should still be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman limited Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 12:38:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (gluteus) was limited during practice Tuesday, June 7, because of a high gluteal strain, but head coach Dan Quinn said the injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman could be limited for the rest of the offseason workouts but should be fine for training camp. He recorded 1,096 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015 and should receive most of the carries in 2016. He should be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts and will be a weekly starting option.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throwing with teammates

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 14:07:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is getting together with WR Julio Jones, RB Devonta Freeman and other Falcons for passing sessions this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: It sure doesn't hurt for teammates to practice together well before the season starts. There's no telling how offseason comradery and chemistry can impact players during the regular season. Freeman and Jones should already be considered No. 1 players at their respective positions, while Ryan is in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Falcons | Not expected to tag any players

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:51:50 -0800

Falcons | Devonta Freeman probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 12:06:05 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: It is an A+ matchup for Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap), and the back has emerged as an elite option at the position, especially because of his work in the passing game. He posted 35.6 FantasyScore points in his Week 6 meeting with the Saints, and is a lineup building block, if you're spending up at running back.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman, Roddy White limited

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 12:23:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) and WR Roddy White (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) and White should still be able to go in Week 17 despite their limited statuses. They have a tremendous matchup against the New Orleans Saints, who have been the worst fantasy defense versus running backs and the fourth worst fantasy defense against wide receivers. Freeman is definitely worth his FantasyScore price for the last week of the season, while White should be viewed as a flex or WR3.

Falcons | Watch out for Devonta Freeman

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 22:48:50 -0800

In Week 17, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman will face a New Orleans Saints rush defense which has allowed 132.3 yards per game with 12 rushing touchdowns and 17 runs of 20 or more yards, tied for worst in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) burned the Saints for 100 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries while also adding eight reception in Week 6, posting 35.6 FantasyScore points in the process. He needs 20 yards for his first-career 1,000-yard season, and he should have no problem going for at least 80-90 rushing yards with a score.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:36:05 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) should receive a majority of the carries during the game. He has scored a touchdown in each of the last two games but has not averaged more than 3.4 yards per carry in any of his last four games. He will have a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week and could be a solid starting option in most leagues.
