Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Could be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (knee) said in a Feb. 2 interview with Mike Florio of NBC Sports Radio's "PFT Live" that he's not ruling out taking part in the Falcons' Organized Team Activities during the spring, Adam Wells of Bleacher Report reports. "Possibly," Freeman said about being ready for OTAs. "But I'm going to take my time and let [his right knee] heal so I won't have to deal with little nicks and knacks throughout the season, because that's the most important time for me. So I'm going to take my time and let it heal, get stronger. I need to be free when I'm out there."

Shortly after the Falcons were eliminated from the playoffs in their divisional-round loss to the Eagles, Freeman relayed that he was playing through a sprained MCL and PCL in the knee, an injury he initially suffered in a Week 17 win over the Panthers. The two-time Pro Bowler was able to avoid surgery to address the matter, but remains conscious of easing up on his workload leading up to training camp in order to avoid a potential setback. It's not expected that Freeman will face many limitations -- if any -- by the time camp opens, so he should enter the 2018 campaign as a borderline top-10 fantasy option at running back in most settings after amassing 1,100 or more yards in each of the past three years.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Avoiding knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn revealed Thursday that Freeman won't require surgery on the MCL and PCL sprains in his right knee, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

After Saturday's divisional-round defeat at Philadelphia, Freeman discussed his health, noting the aforementioned knee issues. He was still a force as a runner and pass catcher throughout his fourth campaign, but his effectiveness in the former realm waned down the stretch. As evidence, he failed to reach 4.0 YPC in five of the Falcons' last seven contests, including each of the last four (including playoffs). Nonetheless, Freeman still averaged 84.4 yards from scrimmage per game and scored eight touchdowns in 14 regular-season outings, so he remains a valued fantasy asset, despite the presence of all-purpose RB Tevin Coleman in his own backfield.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (knee) is clear of injury ahead of Saturday's divisional-round game in Philadelphia, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

For the second week in a row, the Falcons have given the thumbs up to every player that made an appearance on the injury report. Freeman himself was limited in all three sessions this weekend, but his knee issue won't hinder him from handling early-down work Saturday. In six contests following a two-game absence due to a concussion, he's averaged 99.8 scrimmage yards per game and tallied four touchdowns while playing 65.3 percent of the team's offensive snaps.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Limited practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (knee) was limited at Tuesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Freeman followed up a DNP last Tuesday with back-to-back limited sessions to close out the week, but the running back couldn't find much traction Saturday against the Rams en route to 18 carries for 66 yards, though he scored a touchdown. While the performance marked the fourth time in five games that he failed to average 4.0 YPC, his nose for the end zone has translated to four scores during that stretch. A failure to practice in full Wednesday or Thursday won't preclude Freeman from ditching his designation in advance of Saturday's divisional matchup at Philadelphia. As evidence, the aforementioned practice regimen last week allowed him to do just that in the wild-card round.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Scores in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and added a three-yard catch during Saturday's 26-13 win over the Rams.

Early special teams snafus by the Rams gave Atlanta a few short fields early, but Los Angeles was effective in limiting the Falcons to field goals. That changed in the second quarter when Freeman, with a healthy push from offensive lineman Jake Matthews, barreled into the end zone for a three-yard score. After missing a chunk of November with a concussion, Freeman lit things up to close the season, with three of four games with at least 90 total yards. He can be forgiven for needing to grind his way through much of Saturday's matchup against a tough Rams defense, but next week doesn't promise to be any easier. As the NFC's bottom seed, the Falcons and Freeman next head to Philadelphia to take on an Eagles front that gave up the fewest opponent rushing yards in the league by a full four yards per game in 2017.
