Devonta Freeman: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Freeman (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Friday's preseason game against the Jets, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The same can be said of Tevin Coleman, who like Freeman returned to practice Monday. Freeman and Coleman both seem more likely to play in the Falcons' third exhibition game, against the Dolphins on Aug. 29. With fellow RB Antone Smith also dealing with a hamstring injury, undrafted free agent Terron Ward could start Friday, with Jerome Smith, Evan Royster and Michael Ford also expected to see carries in the game.
Coach Dan Quinn is unsure of Freeman's status for Friday's preseason game against the Jets, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Freeman (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Freeman and rookie teammate Tevin Coleman both returned to action Monday after being sidelined for nearly two weeks due to respective Grade 1 hamstring strains. Now that both players are available again, the Falcons' competition to start at running back figures to resume, although it remains to be seen whether either ball-carrier will be up to speed by the Falcons' next preseason game, which will be Friday.
Freeman is expected to miss a minimum of two weeks due to a Grade 1 hamstring strain, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Freeman suffered the untimely injury during Thursday's practice, which will leave opportunities for the likes of Antone Smith, Jerome Smith and undrafted rookie Terron Ward to gain snaps until he can return. On the bright side for Freeman, his current No. 1 pegging on the Falcons' running back depth chart will face no testing from rookie Tevin Coleman, since he's dealing with the same injury as Freeman at the moment.

Coach Dan Quinn expressed hope that Freeman won't miss much time, but the second-year player's absence further taxes the team's current running back depth, with Tevin Coleman -- who is trying to overtake Freeman for the Falcons' No. 1 RB job -- also dealing with a hamstring strain. In the duo's absence, ESPN.com relays that the likes of Antone Smith, Jerome Smith and undrafted rookie Terron Ward are in line to see added practice reps.
Freeman got the first rep with the starting offense in 11-on-11 drills Friday.

At this stage, Freeman has a leg up on rookie Tevin Coleman for the Falcons' No. 1 running back slot, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Not surprisingly, coach Dan Quinn has yet declare a winner in that position battle, but in his second year as a pro, opportunity knocks for Freeman, with the Falcons re-tooling a backfield that bid adieu to both Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers, since the end of the 2014 season. Aside from an advantage in terms of experience, Freeman's good hands and route-running help put him in a position to see added touches in 2015, after carrying the ball just 65 times for 248 yards and catching 30 passes for 225 yards as a rookie.
Freeman has reportedly impressed the Falcons' new coaching staff with his pass-catching skills, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
