Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Although he's been a reliable pass-catching threat all season, garnering at least five targets in 11 of 14 games, Freeman has largely been touchdown-dependent on the ground since running for 88 yards in Week 8 against the Buccaneers. However, in his previous matchup with the Saints in Week 6, he notched 13 carries for 100 yards, eight receptions (on 10 targets) for 56 yards, and two total touchdowns.

Freeman has been diagnosed with a knee injury of unknown severity, but it didn't stop him from taking part in individual drills Wednesday. As the week unfolds, his availability for Sunday's contest against the Saints could receive some clarification, with Friday's injury report likely supplying the final word.
Freeman rushed for 73 yards and a score in Sunday's win over Carolina and added 17 receiving yards on three receptions.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Freeman completed the concussion protocol earlier this week and was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, clearing the way for him to play Sunday. With Tevin Coleman failing to do much starting in place of Freeman while he was out, the latter should be in line for a heavy workload Sunday, though Tampa Bay has allowed just five rushing touchdowns this season.

Freeman (concussion) was a full practice participant Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After he received full clearance from the concussion protocol Wednesday, Freeman proceeded to log a limited practice, which was tipped off by a non-contact jersey in the portion open to the media. Allowed to handle a full complement of reps Thursday, he's on track to usurp his replacement, Tevin Coleman, as the Falcons' No. 1 running back. If he takes on the entire scope of his previous role, Freeman is a must-start on a weekly basis due to the 215 touches that he accrued during the first 10 games of the season.

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
