Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Looks good against Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman had four carries for 42 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

Freeman got the start and was quite impressive, but the Falcons again mixed Tevin Coleman in with the first-team offense, though it may have just been to give Freeman a breather. In any case, Coleman had a far less impressive night, gaining just 16 yards on five carries. Freeman is the clear starter and lead back, but the extent of Coleman's involvement remains a major question mark.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Gets five carries in exhibition opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman had five carries for nine yards in Thursday's preseason opener against Washington.

Freeman and Tevin Coleman both got work with the first-team offense, and the former actually ended up getting more carries, with Coleman taking just two. Though not in any immediate danger of losing the starting job, Freeman may cede a significant number of snaps to Coleman, after handling a massive workload for much of last year.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Touch total could decrease
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeman's touch total in 2016 could decrease in order to keep him fresher and allow Tevin Coleman to get more involved in the Falcons' offense, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman narrowly trailed Coleman on the Falcons' depth chart going into last season, but after the then-rookie broke his ribs in Week 2, Freeman fully capitalized on his newfound starting opportunity, finishing with 1,634 all-purpose yards and 14 touchdowns. While that production earned Freeman fantasy fame and a Pro Bowl selection to boot, Falcons running back coach Bobby Turner recently revealed the team's backfield could further improve by getting Coleman more involved. With obvious big-play potential, Coleman showed flashes during his 12-game first season, and with better health and ball security, he could cut into Freeman's snaps this season, once again making Atlanta's backfield situation worthwhile to monitor going into the upcoming campaign.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeman practiced in a limited fashion during Tuesday's OTAs, as he's dealing with a high gluteal strain, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Freeman went through portions of practice early on, including some agility drills. In the later portions of practice, however, coach Dan Quinn decided to keep Freeman limited in order to risk any sort of aggravation to a lingering strain. The injury is considered minor and Freeman is widely expected to be a full go when the team's mandatory minicamp starts on Jun. 14.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Catches touchdown against Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Devonta Freeman rushed for 81 yards on 24 carries and added 18 yards and a touchdown on two receptions in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. He fumbled during the game.

Freeman's fumble was especially costly as the Atlanta Falcons were marching deep into Saints' territory, it was his third of the season. The second-year back scored a total of 10 touchdowns between Weeks 2 and 6, but scored just once between Weeks 7 and 14. He bounced back, finding the end zone in each of the Falcons' final three games. The version of the West Coast offense offensive coordinator Kyle Shanhan runs has produced fantasy darlings such as Arian Foster, Clinton Portis, Alfred Morris and Justin Forsett. Expect Freeman to be similarly valued in fantasy drafts ahead of next season.
