    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) looks 'so much like himself' this offseason, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: With Tevin Coleman no longer in the mix, Freeman has a chance to return to the every-down force he was a few seasons ago. There's some injury risk, but he's worth grabbing as a RB2 as the lead back in a potent Atlanta offense.

  • Posted: 5/25/2019 2:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) said he has completely recovered from the groin injury he dealt with last season.

    Huddle Up: Freeman will receive a majority of the playing time this upcoming season with Tevin Coleman no longer on the roster. He has been a reliable fantasy option over the years and can be a No. 2 running back in leagues in 2019.

  • Posted: 5/23/2019 10:42am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee, groin, foot) is participating in OTAs Thursday, May 23.

    Huddle Up: Freeman only played in two games last season due to multiple injuries, but is set up to be the main man in the Atlanta backfield with Tevin Coleman now gone. Value him as a low-end RB2 with some upside and also, of course, some injury risk.

  • Posted: 5/11/2019 11:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) will be a full participant at the start of training camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman should receive most of the work at running back in 2019 and should also be involved in the passing game. He can be considered a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/31/2019 7:22pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman's (groin) return from injury can help lead a turnaround in 2019, according to owner Arthur Blank.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was limited to just two games in 2018, but he topped 1,100 total yards in each of the three previous seasons. With Tevin Coleman expected to play elsewhere in 2019, Freeman should be in for a big role when he returns. Assuming he doesn't suffer a setback, RB2 production should be on tap.

  • Posted: 1/4/2019 3:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) may not be ready for offseason workouts but will be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was limited to two games this season and rushed for only 68 yards but likely will enter next season as the starter. He could can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy and receives most of the carries.

  • Posted: 12/19/2018 8:22am ET

    Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) will not return this season, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman will be an upper-middle RB2 next season, but he has significant durability question marks now. Tevin Coleman remains an RB1/RB2 as long as he's active.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 10:42am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) has yet to be ruled out this season and still has 'a shot' to play at some point, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Atlanta's playoff hopes are fading fast and it's hard to see the team bringing Freeman back for a couple of meaningless games if the Falcons don't get hot soon, so owners shouldn't feel the need to rush to the waiver wire to pick him up quite yet. It's still much more likely than not Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith finish the season in a committee attack while Freeman heals up for 2019.

  • Posted: 10/16/2018 11:15am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) is undergoing surgery on his injured groin and is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 16. He could return later in the year if his recovery goes well.

    Huddle Up: It will be a committee of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith in Atlanta's backfield for the foreseeable future. Coleman's ceiling is higher and he can be valued as an RB2 going forward, but Smith's role has been steadily increasing. If Smith is available, he's a top waiver-wire selection.

  • Posted: 10/15/2018 12:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) is not expected to play in Week 7 versus the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons are likely looking ahead to their Week 8 bye to give their top running back some more recovery time, but the fact they're already considering him unlikely for Week 7 isn't the greatest of news. It likely means another heavy dose of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith, although only Coleman should be trusted as an RB2 in lineups.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 10:37am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) on Friday, Oct. 10, was ruled out of the Week 6 game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with foot and groin injuries.

    Huddle Up: The bad injury fortune and frustration continues in Atlanta as Freeman will miss the fourth of six games this season, leaving Tevin Coleman as a solid RB2 play and Ito Smith as a fringe flex consideration.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 9:15am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) was not seen on the field during the media-viewing portion of practice Friday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Freeman hasn't practiced all week and is it's looking like he'll miss his fourth game (out of six) Sunday. That elevates Tevin Coleman back into rock-solid RB2 status in what should be a high-scoring matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 1:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) was held out of practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is looking pretty iffy again this week. If he misses practice tomorrow then a doubtful status is likely, in which case Tevin Coleman would be featured in Atlanta's backfield. If that comes to fruition, Coleman will have low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 appeal.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 7:50am ET

    Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) may not be able to play in Week 6, but the team doesn't believe it's a long-term concern like his knee injury was earlier this season.

    Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman has been unspectacular this year, but he'd become a high-end RB2 if Freeman is out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It's a good matchup for Coleman, too.

  • Posted: 10/10/2018 4:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is dealing with a bone contusion and his status for the team's Week 6 game on Sunday, Oct. 14, is 'clearly in doubt.' He was able to do work on the side, however, during practice on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Freeman just returned from injury this past weekend, but was disappointing overall in contributing just 41 scoreless total yards at Pittsburgh. Obviously, his owners need to be on top of this situation all week. If he can't play, Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith would handle the backfield duties.

  • Posted: 10/10/2018 3:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Freeman will be able to practice later in the week. He can be a No. 2 running back in leagues if he plays despite his disappointing Week 5 performance.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 1:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 32 yards on eight carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Freeman returned from a knee injury but appeared to receive limited touches against the Steelers. He should be more involved in the offense against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week and can be a No. 2 running back.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 11:32am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Freeman missed the last few games because of his knee injury but should regain his starting job this week. It is not known if he will be eased back into the offense, but he can be a solid No. 2 fantasy running back for owners.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 9:50am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will play this weekend, according to head coach Dan Quin.

    Huddle Up: How much Freeman will play remains to be seen, so be prepared for a legitimate timeshare with Tevin Coleman in Freeman's return from injury. Both backs are RB2 options as they limit each other's fantasy ceilings.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 3:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Freeman appears to be on track to play in Week 5, but owners will know more about his status later this week. He may see limited work after missing a few games but can still be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 6:03am ET

    Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is expected to play in Week 5, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman returns against a tough Pittsburgh Steelers matchup. The Steelers are among the better teams against RBs this year, and he's an RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 10/2/2018 7:49am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) could return in Week 5, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Freeman would return to a tough Pittsburgh Steelers matchup as they're among the best teams against opposing RBs this season. He'd be an RB2 consideration.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 10:38am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been ruled out for Week 4 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: This was expected even though Freeman returned to practice on a limited basis this week. Tevin Coleman will get the start for a third straight week and should be expected to handle between 15 and 20 touches once again, making him worth a start in just about every league.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 2:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Freeman has missed the last two games because of the injury and probably will miss another one, but owners should monitor the situation. He would be a risky option if he plays.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 6:28am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been cleared to go through walkthroughs Wednesday, Sept. 26, but he won't practice.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is expected to miss another week. Tevin Coleman is an RB2 against a midrange Cincinnati Bengals defense against the position.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 2:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Freeman will miss another game unless he is able to recover in the next few days. Tavon Coleman likely will continue to be the starting running back and can could be a No. 2 running back in some leagues because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 2:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's not unexpected, as Freeman missed Week 2 and is listed as day to day. Circle back around later in the week for a better idea if he'll play Week 3 against the Saints or not. Tevin Coleman would again shoulder the bulk of the workload with Ito Smith as the backup if Freeman cannot go.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 12:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is considered day-to-day as he recovers from a knee contusion, according to head coach Dan Quinn. It was originally reported that Freeman would be sidelined for multiple games.

    Huddle Up: It is likely that Freeman will still miss this week's contest, but the outlook is more positive coming from Quinn. Start Tevin Coleman as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 again in Week 3, but next week might be the time to shop Coleman if another owner is willing to pay a good price before Freeman returns. Coleman will remain in RB2 territory upon Freeman's return.

  • Posted: 9/15/2018 4:08pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is expected to miss two to three games with a knee contusion, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's great news for Tevin Coleman and those who roster him. He figures to be in the low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 conversation while Freeman sits, including this week. For those who have Freeman, picking up someone like T.J. Yeldon, Phillip Lindsay, Austin Ekeler or even Nyheim Hines could help ease the pain.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 10:40am ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) on Friday, Sept. 14, was ruled out of Sunday's Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers. Head coach Dan Quinn said there is nothing structurally wrong with Freeman's knee and hopes it is not a long-term injury.

    Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman is now up as the main man in the Falcons' backfield and is a solid RB2 start Sunday. Rookie Ito Smith will be the No. 2 back but is not expected to see enough touches to be useful in the majority of leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 9:09am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is not expected to play in Week 2 against Carolina Panthers, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Huddle Up: The injury is not believed to be serious, but Freeman hasn't practiced since getting hurt last Thursday. Tevin Coleman will get the start and should see at least 15 to 20 touches, enough to make him an RB2 even in a difficult matchup. Rookie Ito Smith will serve as his backup, although he is unlikely to see enough work to be relevant in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 9:42am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will not practice Thursday, Sept. 13, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Even with the extra few days off after the early Week 1 opener in Philly, Freeman's status remains iffy for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Freeman's absence would be a boon for Tevin Coleman's fantasy owners as the platoon back suddenly would find a low-end RB1 workload on his plate with RB Ito Smith also getting mixed in. Stay tuned, though, to see if Friday brings about any change in Freeman's status.

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 2:11pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Freeman is in danger of missing playing time, or if he was simply resting his knee to get him healthy for the weekend. If he were to be inactive or be on a snap count, Tevin Coleman would be the biggest beneficiary.

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 9:34am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 12, due to soreness. However, head coach Dan Quinn said Freeman sounded like he was structurally OK.

    Huddle Up: Freeman didn't look good before the injury, and he'll face the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. The Panthers held Ezekiel Elliott to a 15-69-1 line in their win over the Dallas Cowboys. Freeman might be a mid-RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 10:22pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) told the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo that he was OK after the game Thursday, Sept. 6, despite not appearing on the team's final drive. Freeman's injury was not mentioned by head coach Dan Quinn in the post-game press conference.

    Huddle Up: Now that it appears Freeman will be alright fantasy owners can get back to bemoaning his lack of opportunities against the Eagles. His next opportunity to produce will come on Sept. 16 against the Carolina Panthers; in two games vs. Carolina last year, Freeman averaged 86 total yards and scored once.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 9:43pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) injured his knee in the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Sept. 6. The severity of the injury is not yet known. On the night, Freeman carried the ball six times for 36 yards and added 14 yards on three receptions.

    Huddle Up: While Freeman's debut was statistically disappointing, that would pale in comparison to a knee injury of any significance. The Falcons don't play again until Sept. 16, so this is something you'll want to keep an eye on, but for now you can simply lament his inability to score from inside the five early in the game. If Freeman were to miss time Tevin Coleman's value would go up markedly.
