Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Finds end zone twice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman rushed 19 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 34-23 victory over the Packers. He also caught both of his targets for 16 receiving yards.

Sunday night was a good reminder that, despite sharing the backfield with Tevin Coleman, Freeman remains the top dog in Atlanta. In a battle between NFC heavyweights, Freeman out-touched Coleman 21 to 8 and was the recipient of both goal-line opportunities the Falcons had, ultimately finishing the day with scoring plunges from one- and two-yards out. The most promising aspect of his performance out of all, though, may be his improved efficiency (4.4 YPC from 3.1 YPC) from the season opener. Regardless, he'll look to keep it going in an inviting matchup in Week 3 against the Lions.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Finds end zone in win over Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman carried 12 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Bears. He also caught both his targets for an additional two yards.

Freeman struggled to the tune of 3.1 yards per carry in this one, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a five-yard plunge into the end zone in the second quarter. He also was notably less involved in the passing game than Tevin Coleman, who racked up 42 receiving yards on six targets. While Coleman should continue to command his share of touches, Freeman has the red zone duties locked down and should enjoy an advantage in carries on a weekly basis. This should remain the case in Week 2 against the Packers.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: No longer in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman is no longer subject to the NFL's concussion protocol and has been cleared to practice fully, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman, who had been in the protocol for over two weeks, will thus be able to face some contact before Week 1. That said, the Falcons' top back will not play in the team's preseason finale. He'll presumably be joined on the sideline by several other key teammates, while others battle for depth jobs Thursday night against the Jaguars.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Will be DNP on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

On Monday, head coach Dan Quinn ruled Freeman (concussion) out for Thursday's preseason contest against the Jaguars, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The absence will mark Freeman's third in a row during exhibition season as he works his way through the concussion protocol. On a positive note, he participated in individual drills at Monday's practice, setting himself up to increase his reps in the coming days. Less than two weeks remain before the Falcons kick off the regular season Sept. 10 in Chicago, so Freeman seemingly has plenty of time to receive full clearance from the aforementioned protocol.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (concussion) was back in practice Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman's concussion is anticipated to keep him sidelined for a third straight exhibition outing Thursday, but his return to individual drills is definitely an encouraging development for the Falcons and fantasy owners alike. Although it's unclear if Freeman has fully cleared league protocol, he has nearly two weeks to do so in order to play Week 1 against the Bears.
