2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
If you had expectations of a leap for Freeman into the elite tier of RBs, 2017 was probably a disappointment and with his lowest fantasy point per game average since becoming the starter, he definitely failed to live up to those lofty goals. But Freeman went a long way in helping his owners win weeks with six double-digit scoring weeks including two weeks over 20 fantasy points. And while weeks 6 through 13, likely upset owners with two missed games and another when he left early, Freeman never really busted when he played. Other than the week he left with an injury, he scored at least 5 fantasy points in every game he started.

Owners who drafted Freeman to be the workhorse anchor to their team almost certainly didn't enjoy his performance, but that has brought his ADP down into the 2nd round which fits his fantasy profile much better. His increased value in PPR leagues is somewhat overstated as his target count has decreased each of the last two seasons, but in both standard and PPR scoring he's a viable RB1 who can now be drafted as RB11 in the middle of the second round. If he's paired with another mid-RB1 or elite WR, he'll likely be perceived as a value as compared to last season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Devonta Freeman placed on IR
Groin surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 16, 12:55 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Big loss from Falcons as they are going to place Devonta Freeman on IR today (Jay Glazer)

FFToday's Take: In addition to his groin, Freeman has suffered a foot injury in 2018. He's eligible to return from the IR given we're heading into Week 6 he has very little fantasy value at this point. Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith should share the bulk of the running back duties moving forward.


Injury Devonta Freeman unlikely to go in Week 7
Matt Bryant also expected to miss game as well
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 15, 4:25 pm

Atlanta Falcons
HC Dan Quinn said Matt Bryant strained his hamstring, he'll likely be out this week as will Devonta Freeman with a groin injury. (Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Falcons are likely looking ahead to their Week 8 bye to give their top running back some more recovery time, but the fact they're already considering him unlikely for Week 7 isn't the greatest of news. Tevin Coleman has been decent as a lead back during Freeman's absences, but he's not making a great case to get paid as a free agent in the offseason. Consider Coleman a low-end RB2 in Week 7 and Ito Smith a serviceable flex.


Injury Devonta Freeman out for Week 6
Foot injury

#Falcons coach Dan Quinn declared RB Devonta Freeman, DT Grady Jarrett and Derrick Shelby OUT. (Orlando Ledbetter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Freeman missed practice this week and is reportedly dealing with a foot and groin injury. Expect Tevin Coleman to start with Ito Smith filling a backup role. Coleman typically sees around 18-22 touches with Freeman out. With this game expected to be a shootout, Coleman is a solid RB2 play with RB1 upside if he finds the endzone.


Injury Devonta Freeman's status up in the air
Foot injury keeping Falcons RB out of practice
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 11, 9:45 am

Atlanta Falcons
Devonta Freeman did not practice on Wednesday and was listed on the official injury report. “His foot is sore,” Quinn said about Freeman. “He was able to do some work off to the side (on Wednesday). He’ll probably participate in some of the walk-through today. But with the soreness we are going to see how it responds over the next day and a half. Certainly, he’s frustrated that he’s got the sore foot, but the good news is that it is not something that’s long-term or any re-aggravation of anything that he’s had prior.” (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: Freeman missed practice Wednesday and appears to be on the wrong side of questionable this week with a foot injury. If he misses, Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith would handle the backfield workload. Coleman would be a solid RB2 option in a game with a high over/under (57.0).


Injury Devonta Freeman expected to play
Hasn't played since Week 1
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 3, 7:30 am

Atlanta Falcons
#Falcons coach Dan Quinn says on 92.9 The Game that RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is expected to play Sunday vs. the #Steelers, but DT Grady Jarrett (ankle) will be out. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Freeman hasn't played since Week 1 after spraining the MCL and PCL in his knee. He'll step into a great matchup against the Steelers which should be a high-scoring affair. Expect Freeman and Tevin Coleman to share the workload in Week 5.
