Falcons | Extension coming for Devonta Freeman?

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 12:06:14 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman and the Falcons are "in good space," according to Thomas Dimitroff, in regards to a contract extension. Dimitroff said both sides will discuss a deal at the "appropriate time."

Fantasy Tip: That appropriate time is probably after the Falcons are done wondering what happened in the Super Bowl. Freeman has quickly proven himself as one of the most versatile running backs in the NFL over the last two seasons. Freeman is an RB1 candidate in all formats even with Tevin Coleman splitting time with him.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman ran 11 times for 75 yards and scored a touchdown in the team's 34-28 Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman didn't do anything to damage his stock as a solid RB1 going into the 2017 offseason. New England had trouble stopping Freeman early on, which was key to Atlanta's surge.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman hits salary hike

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 05:18:09 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Freeman has rushed 28 times for 87 yards (3.1 yards per rush) and a touchdown with a 8-122-1 line through the air this postseason. He has the most upside for a big game of the backs in the Super Bowl.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman an extension candidate

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 16:48:45 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is expected to have contract extension talks with the Falcons this offseason. His agent believes Freeman should be paid like one of the top three running backs in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman rushed for 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season and has added 87 yards and one touchdown in the postseason. He has been sharing snaps with Tevin Coleman over the last few seasons but should continue to receive most of the carries in the running game. Owners in all leagues should consider him a No. 1 back in fantasy leagues next season.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman sound in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 16:23:24 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards and caught four balls for another 42 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman's versatility makes him an every-week start for conventional fantasy purposes. He figures to once again share reps in 2017 with Tevin Coleman and is a reasonable RB1 target for PPR formats.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman with mixed bag against GB

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 07:19:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown with four catches for 23 yards and another touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons were without Tevin Coleman, and it was a close game, but the team kind of gave up on the run. Without those two touchdowns, it would have been a poor fantasy output for Freeman. The Packers have allowed just 11.1 fantasy points per game to RBs in the playoffs and no touchdowns. Freeman has a tough matchup in the NFC title game, but he'll be in the second tier of RBs in playoff pools.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman goes over 100 total yards

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 16:54:56 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman totaled 125 yards in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks, rushing for 45 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and adding four catches for 80 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The rushing line isn't overly impressive, but Freeman did more than enough to make his DFS owners happy, scoring from a yard out in the third quarter. The highlight of his day was a 53-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that set Atlanta up for a field goal on the drive after his score. Freeman will remain a very smart pick in all playoff formats next week regardless of whether the Falcons face the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:28:27 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints, and he added five receptions for 81 yards on his only five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ended the regular season with 1,079 rushing yards and 11 rushing scores, while also posting 54 catches for 462 yards and two touchdowns. He will be a popular early-round fantasy option in 2017 drafts, especially PPR formats, and he is a must-have in postseason pools, too.
