2016

Where Kyle Shanahan goes, fantasy owners eagerly follow. They know how good he's been for No. 1 receivers and running games. And last year, he was damn good to Freeman. Let's not get caught up in revisionist history, however. Last summer, rookie Tevin Coleman was considered the more interesting back, not Freeman. Coleman wound up getting the Week 1 start (despite an August hamstring injury), but a rib injury opened the door for Freeman, who had an inconsequential second game before spreading his wings. From Weeks 3-7, he piled up an absurd 825 total yards and nine TDs. He snagged 27 of 32 targets in the passing game, and had 5.3 YPC on his 109 attempts. A star was born. And just when we bought in fully on Freeman, the wave crashed a bit. Over his last eight starts he was limited to 3.25 YPC, and he had a modest four overall TDs. PPR owners weren't that sad he still caught 39 passes over that period, staying on the field in all packages but he didn't look like the explosive difference-maker we saw during Octoberfest. The team will probably lean on Freeman in the scoring area again he was first in red-zone carries last year, and second among backs in red-zone targets. TDs can be fluky at times, but they sure pay the fantasy bills. Ten of Freeman's 14 scores came from the 7-yard line and in.

2015

Freeman, a fourth-round pick last year, saw limited action in a crowded backfield, but the Falcons' decision to part ways with Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers could mean Freeman is ready for a more significant role. Undersized at 5-8, 206, Freeman is dangerous in space, using his agility and balance to slip would-be tacklers before lowering his pads and driving forward with surprising power to earn extra yards after contact. He's less effective between the tackles, but his vision is good enough for him to find holes at the line when called upon. He's an asset as a receiver, and his experience in college with a zone-blocking scheme should serve him well as Atlanta's offense transitions to a similar ground attack under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who oversaw productive running games in Houston and Washington. Third-round speed merchant Tevin Coleman is a threat to Freeman's touches, but even in a committee, Freeman's skills should allow him to have a productive campaign.

2014

The Falcons spent a fourth-round selection on Freeman, a somewhat undersized 5-8, 203 but well-rounded back out of Florida State, and he'll immediately enter into the mix for backup duties behind Steven Jackson. He even has good enough receiving skills to cut into Jacquizz Rodgers' third-down work. A shifty runner with great vision and instincts who doesn't shy away from contact, Freeman's in line to be the long-term successor to Jackson in Atlanta, but he never exceeded 200 carries in a college season and may be best served in the long term as the early-down back in a committee approach.
