Falcons | GM confident about Devonta Freeman deal

Sat, 20 May 2017 11:35:07 -0700

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said he is confident that the team will be able to sign RB Devonta Freeman to a contract extension. Dimitroff said talks between the two sides likely will occur around the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should receive an extension at some point because he is a big part of the team's offense. He recorded 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2016 and should have a similar role this upcoming season. Freeman should be considered a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman wants 'elite' money

Wed, 17 May 2017 10:11:17 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman wants to be "elite paid", according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. "I want to be the best. I want to be elite paid. Whatever that is, that's where I want to be," Freeman said.

Fantasy Tip: It's a bit funny Freeman is giving off the impression he doesn't know how much money the elite backs make, but he is justified in asking to be paid like one of the league's top backs because he is. Le'Veon Bell is the highest-paid back in the league this year making $12-plus million on the franchise tag, while LeSean McCoy and Doug Martin rank second and third at $8.01 million and $7.15 million, respectively. The fourth-year pro is entering his walk year and a rock-solid RB1 in all formats.

Falcons | Holdout unlikely for Devonta Freeman

Tue, 16 May 2017 10:25:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman said he can't envision himself holding out if contract negotiations were to come to a halt. Freeman has one year left on his rookie deal.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's extension is down the road a bit, and it would be a huge surprise to see him wearing something other than black and red for the next several seasons. Splitting touches with Tevin Coleman hasn't hurt Freeman's fantasy value. He's a top 10 back with more significance in PPR leagues.
