    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added one catch for four yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Coleman visited the end zone for the first time since Week 2 against the Packers. He continues to receive about 10-13 total touches per week and remains a decent RB3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:31pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman carried nine times for a team-high 79 yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills and he added four catches for a team-best 65 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman's fantasy owners can't really complain, as he did a great job despite not getting into the end zone. He was counted upon more in the passing game with Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu tapping out early due to injuries. He is a solid fantasy option, particularly in PPR formats, but the Falcons are off for their bye in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 4:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman carried the ball six times for 46 yards Sunday, Sept. 24, in a 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Coleman didn't score this week, but he did post similar numbers to that of Week 2. Freeman is definitely the No. 1 back in Atlanta, but Coleman's performance rates him an RB3 or flex option.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed six times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Packers and he added two receptions for three yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, but his fantasy appeal is rather limited as long as Devonta Freeman is healthy and seeing a majority of the backfield touches. The Falcons travel to meet the Lions in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 3:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed eight times for 16 yards in Week 2 against the Bears and he had four grabs for 42 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman had 12 touches to 14 for Devonta Freeman, so it was almost an even split. However, unless Freeman suffers some sort of injury to keep him out, Coleman is mostly a low-end RB2 in PPR formats and an RB3 or flex option in standard leagues. The Falcons host the Packers in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/22/2017 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman led all qualifying running backs (at least 120 touches) in overall efficiency in 2016. Coleman ranked first of 42 running backs in aggregate ratings for standard fantasy points per game, scoring efficiency per touch, fantasy points per touch, and PPR fantasy points per touch. He finished third in yards per touch and 13th in PPR fantasy points per game. Coleman scored 11 total times on 149 offensive touches.

    Huddle Up: A new offensive coordinator is the only noteworthy change for Coleman entering 2017. The Falcons should be in good shape offensively even after losing playcaller Kyle Shanahan. A drop-off can be expected, but Coleman is still a fine RB3/flex in most setups. He does enough of everything -- and well, at that -- to warrant a midround pick in any scoring system.

  • Posted: 2/8/2017 5:03pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for six of his eight touchdowns on the road this season. He also recorded two of his three receiving touchdowns on the road.

    Huddle Up: Coleman was not the starting running back this season but received plenty of work in the offense. He probably will have a similar role for the Falcons in 2017 and can be considered a No. 3 in most leagues and a No. 2 running back in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 2/7/2017 11:14am ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) will not need surgery on his injured ankle, according to head coach Dan Quinn. A timetable for Coleman's recovery was not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is wearing a walking boot, as previously reported, but this ailment doesn't appear to be too serious. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks this offseason he should be good to go. He and Devontae Freeman arguably make up the best running back duo in the NFL. Interestingly, they don't damage each other's fantasy value too much. View Coleman as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 for next season.

  • Posted: 2/7/2017 9:20am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot Tuesday, Feb. 7. Coleman suffered an apparent ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LI and did not return.

    Huddle Up: There has been no indication Coleman is dealing with a significant injury, but it is also notable he has yet to be given a timetable for recovery. Barring something unforeseen, he should have no problem being ready for offseason workouts and figures to return to his role as Devonta Freeman's explosive sidekick in Atlanta's offense next season.

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 6:44pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) is questionable to return against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI Sunday, Feb. 5.

    Huddle Up: If Coleman can't return, Devonta Freeman should dominate the backfield touches the rest of the way.

  • Posted: 1/22/2017 4:29pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 11 times for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. Coleman added three catches for 35 yards.

    Huddle Up: Following a breakout year, Coleman will be sought after in 2017 fantasy drafts. His 11 offensive touchdowns shows versatility and lineup flexibility, but being so dependent on scoring also makes Coleman risky. Think RB3 territory in most setups.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 5:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for a game-high 57 yards on 11 carries and added three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Divisional Round against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Coleman showed his usual elite burst on more than one occasion. He scored out of the backfield on a 14-yard pass near the end of the first half on a well-designed route that got him free in the end zone after the receivers executed a scissors route, leaving him all by himself near the sideline. All Coleman remains behind Freeman in the rotation, he should continue to produce enough to be an effective DFS option in the NFC Championship game next week.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:44pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers, and he added three receptions for 45 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: The rushing yardage total was a season high for Coleman, who visited the end zone three total times (two rushing, one receiving) over his final three games. He remains a solid flex fantasy option even when Devonta Freeman is healthy.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 10:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 14 times for 58 yards in the Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He added two receptions for eight yards on a pair of targets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman remains a RB3 or flex play heading into Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers as long as Devonta Freeman is healthy and available.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 3:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 49 yards on 12 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has been splitting carries with Devonta Freeman this season but failed for record a catch for the first time this season. He should continue to have a role in the running and passing game moving forward and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 2:28pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for nine yards and one touchdown on eight carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also caught two passes for four yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Coleman saw a solid amount of playing time even though he missed a few games because of an injury. Coleman will be a part of the running and passing game moving forward and can be at least a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 1:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 25.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has missed the last three games, but after getting in his third consecutive full practice, it appears he'll be ready to return in Week 12 opposite the Arizona Cardinals. He's a fine flex play for this weekend, though it would be understandable if he's only eased back into action, meaning he might not see his usual amount of touches right out of the gate.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is 'good to go' for Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should resume his usual high-upside change-of-pace role behind Devonta Freeman, although it should be noted that Arizona is the stingiest defense in the league against running backs in fantasy this season. Atlanta's offensive line is good enough to counteract that somewhat, but Coleman is best viewed as a RB3/flex option this week as a result.

  • Posted: 11/24/2016 7:34pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should make his return to the field in Week 12 and split carries with Devonta Freeman. Both players are low-end RB2 candidates.

  • Posted: 11/23/2016 3:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Coleman appears to be on track to play after missing a few games because of his injury. He should share work with Devonta Freeman at running back and will be involved in the passing game. He should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues and can be a low-end No. 2 running back in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 2:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) said he's feeling 100 percent and is ready to get back on the field after participating in practice Monday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: With Coleman ready to go again Atlanta should once again implement their backfield committee with Coleman and Devonta Freeman. Despite splitting touches, both have excelled this season in Atlanta's prolific offense. They should both be starting considerations in what could be a high-scoring matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 10:29am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was spotted at practice Monday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: This was expected after head coach Dan Quinn suggested Coleman would be back at full participation at some point following the team's Week 11 bye. Barring a setback, the highly explosive Coleman should be considered a RB3 this week against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 11:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will be back to full participation at some point before his team faces the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Devonta Freeman maintained his usual workload during Coleman's absence, but the Falcons' running game has been far less dynamic since the latter's Week 7 exit. Owners should feel good about using Coleman as a RB2 in most leagues going forward, although his volatility makes him a better flex play, which is what he should be considered against the Cardinals' stout defense in a couple of weeks.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 11:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not play in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a bummer after some optimism earlier in the week but not entirely unexpected with the Falcons' bye coming next week. Devonta Freeman should see 15 to 20 touches once again, while Terron Ward will back him up.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 1:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is still rehabilitating his hamstring injury and his status for Week 10 is unclear at this point. If he continues to miss practice then he may end up doubtful to play. If that's the case, Devonta Freeman would be an RB1 consideration as the Falcon's primary running back, even against a tough defense in the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 10:29am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was spotted working on the side field during practice Monday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is expected to return to game action this week, but it is a bit discouraging he wasn't able to get a session following a long weekend, although he could easily be in the final stages of proving his fitness as well. Ideally, the second-year back will be able to return to practice in some fashion Wednesday when the team begins its preparation for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. If he can play, he'll be a high-upside RB2 in that matchup.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 9:15am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Terron Ward had six rushes for 46 yards and an 11-yard catch last week. He still doesn't figure to see enough time behind Devonta Freeman to be worth playing in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night.

  • Posted: 11/1/2016 2:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) sat out practice Tuesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dan Quinn has already said Coleman's strength is fine, but he needs to see some explosion in Coleman's running before Coleman will play. The running back is looking iffy for Thursday night, so be prepared to have a plan B if you were counting on starting Coleman. Devonta Freeman should be a low-end RB1 consideration either way.

  • Posted: 11/1/2016 10:41am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will have a rehab run Tuesday, Nov. 1. Head coach Dan Quinn told reporters Coleman's strength is back, but Quinn needs to see (Coleman's usual) explosion before he will be allowed to play.

    Huddle Up: It sounds as if Coleman might have a shot to play this week if the game was on a Sunday, but the Falcons will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday instead. As such, he should be considered a longshot to suit up. Terron Ward should be expected to back up Devonta Freeman again this week, giving the latter one more shot at a huge workload.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 3:28pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 31, and will be a game-time decision for Week 9, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Coleman was not able to play in Week 8 and may not be able to play this week since the Falcons play Thursday, Nov. 3. Owners can monitor the situation over the next few days but should look at healthier options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 11:13am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not play in Week 8 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: There is speculation Coleman may only miss two weeks. In the meantime, Devonta Freeman should receive the bulk of backfield touches in Atlanta's high-octane offense. Terron Ward may spot him on occasion and the Falcons added Stevan Ridley this week to boost their depth, but Freeman should be considered a top-end RB1 despite the difficult matchup.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 10:17am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 27, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is not expected to play in Week 8, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. Devonta Freeman should see most of the playing time if Coleman is ruled out and should be a starting option in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 2:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Coleman appears to be headed for a doubtful status this week, in which case Devonta Freeman would be the featured back. The Green Bay Packers have been stellar against the run this year, but Freeman's running ability and pass-catching prowess still make him an RB1 play.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 5:32am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) won't practice Wednesday, Oct. 26, and his Week 8 status is uncertain, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Coleman isn't expected to play against the Green Bay Packers this week. Devonta Freeman should see most of the work, and the team just picked up Stevan Ridley. Freeman is an RB1 consideration, and Ridley could be a flex back if he's active and able to catch on quickly enough.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 3:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 8 because of his hamstring injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Devonta Freeman should receive most of the playing time at running back with Coleman expected to miss at least one week because of the injury. Freeman has been involved in the running and passing game over the past few weeks and can be a solid No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 11:56am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: It's not too serious, but Coleman is probably headed for a week full of limited practices. It would be a surprise if he's not active for Week 8, but he'll continue to split touches with Devontae Freeman. Even if Coleman does play, he and Freeman face one of their toughest tests of the year in the Green Bay Packers, who have given up the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this year. Coleman is in the low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 conversation.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 4:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) left the Week 7 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a hamstring injury. He is sitting on the sidelines without his helmet. Coleman tried walking around for a minute but sat back down.

    Huddle Up: Hamstring injuries are tricky, especially for running backs. If Coleman is forced to the shelf, that's great news for fantasy owners of Devonta Freeman.
