Coleman rushed 12 times for 42 yards and three touchdowns in Monday night's win over the Saints. He also caught three passes (on three targets) for 47 yards.
Coleman's average of 3.5 yards per rush paled in comparison to that from teammate Devonta Freeman's 14 rushes for 152 yards, but the ascending second-year pro took advantage of his red zone touches by scoring a trio of times Monday. The former Indiana standout found pay dirt from two, two and six yards on his respective end zone trips, which could earn him more goal-line work going forward. At 6'1", 210 pounds, Coleman is a bigger, more explosive athlete than Freeman, but as the Falcons' first three games have shown, there are ample touches to go around Atlanta's backfield, and both players feasted from their Week 3 servings.
