News — Devonta Freeman
Devonta Freeman chipped in with 35 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and added four catches for 23 yards and a touchdown on six targets Sunday in the Falcons' Week 8 win over the Packers.
Freeman won’t remember this as one of his better games, though fantasy owners might. Aside from a 17-yard sprint on the game’s opening drive, Freeman totaled just 18 yards on 10 carries. He found the end zone late in the second quarter on a five-yard screen pass from Matt Ryan. Freeman bulldozed his way to another touchdown in the third quarter. He was stuffed on the goal line twice but made good on his third attempt, punching it in from a yard out. Freeman out-touched Terron Ward 15-7 but outgained him by only one yard (58-57). With Tevin Coleman (hamstring) likely to miss at least another game, Freeman should be a solid RB1 Thursday against Tampa Bay.
