2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
As expected, Devonta Freeman's workload and production decreased in 2016 due to the presence of Tevin Coleman in the Falcons' RBBC. What wasn't expected was that Freeman still managed to be a top ten fantasy running back. The Falcons finished the 2016 regular season placing fifth in yards per carry (4.6) and yards per game (120.5) despite ranking only twelfth in rushing attempts per game (26.3). It's no wonder that the efficient work of Atlanta's ground game made them one of only four teams to score 20 rushing touchdowns. The lead dog in Atlanta has now posted back-to-back years with double digit touchdowns. Excluding his six-carry performance of Week 14 as an outlier, Freeman notched 7.95 fantasy points per game (standard scoring) in the seven regular season games he failed to score last season. Then again, when Freeman wasn't being asked to run the ball into the end zone he was being targeted in the passing game (17 red zone targets in 2016). After riding the ground game all the way to the Super Bowl, the Falcons only have more reason to let their horses run wild this year. Freeman's high ceiling, high floor and ability to be a RB1 despite being in a RBBC make him a sound investment at the back end of the first round.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Devonta Freeman expected to practice Monday
Should return to individual drills
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 27, 2:00 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who is in the NFL’s concussion protocol, is set to return to practice on Monday,  head coach Dan Quinn said on Sunday. “Devonta Freeman, you’ll see back,” Quinn said a day after an exhibition game loss to the Cardinals. “He’ll return to play (Monday) in some individual (drills). So, that part is good from an injury standpoint.” (Atlanta Jounal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: Freeman has missed time with a concussion but is expected to return to individual drills today. His status as a low-end RB1 holds true.


Devonta Freeman signs five-year extension
Includes 15 million dollar signing bonus
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 9, 10:46 am

Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons and two-time Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman have agreed on a five-year contract extension the team announced Wednesday. The deal is worth $41.25 million and includes a $15 million signing bonus, agent Kristin Campbell told ESPN. $22 million is guaranteed. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: After riding the running game all the way to the Super Bowl, it's not a surprise to see Atlanta's top brass retain its premier running back. Fantasy owners can draft Freeman as a solid RB1 without worry of a holdout. Atlanta now has both of their top running backs under contract for at least two more seasons with Tevin Coleman's rookie deal coming to an end following the 2018 campaign.
