2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a rookie campaign that showed flashes of feature back potential and a solid off-season, Devonta Freeman appears to be the leader in the clubhouse for the starting role in Atlanta’s backfield. The second-year back from Florida State will be in competition with rookie Tevin Coleman throughout the preseason, but it appears Freeman’s ability to pass protect as well as catch the ball out of the backfield are giving him the early edge to receive more snaps. With new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan at the helm, the Falcons are not only stressing "balance" in their offensive philosophy but are also implementing the famed "zone blocking scheme" that has made 1,000-yard backs out of the likes of Steve Slaton, Mike Anderson, and Olandis Gary. With more emphasis on the run game combined with Freeman’s explosive one-cut ability (which will be highlighted by the zone blocking scheme), look for Freeman to have some big games and keep the rookie at bay. Freeman will also provide more of a value in PPR leagues as he has earned high praise from the Falcons staff for his sure hands and crisp route running out of the backfield and slot position. Freeman is an intriguing option and could deliver solid RB2 fantasy output in the new look offense.

Coleman, Freeman "battling for it" in Atlanta
Freeman stands atop depth chart for now
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 1, 4:45 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons HC Dan Quinn noted Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman are “absolutely battling for (the right to start at running back in Week 1),” and, at present, it’s difficult to forecast how the situation will unfold. For now, as Coleman eases his way into the organization, Freeman remains at the top of the depth chart. Regardless of how the carries are distributed, Freeman has the tools needed to be a valuable asset in the passing game. A big reason why the Falcons like Coleman is his knowledge of the zone-blocking scheme. As a senior at Indiana, he darted for more than 2,000 yards. New OC Kyle Shanahan’s system will look a lot like the one Coleman studied at Indiana, at least from his perspective. (atlantafalcons.com)

FFToday's Take: It should come as no surprise if Coleman and Freeman end up sharing carries at the beginning of the season, but as Shanahan's hand-picked selection with experience running behind a zone-blocking line, it would be a bit of an upset if Coleman didn't eventually take the lead role at some point in 2015. Shanahan's system is usually very fantasy-friendly, so owners need to keep an eye on how this situation evolves over the summer.
