PF DAILY SPOTLIGHT


RB Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons



A star was born in Atlanta last season as running back Devonta Freeman emerged from the pack to become a superstar in fantasy football. In fact he is one of only nine running backs since the 2011 season to compile these numbers:

  • 1000+ rushing yards
  • 50+ receptions
  • 300+ fantasy points


Those nine instances were:

Jamaal Charles with Kansas City in 2013: 382 fantasy points
Ray Rice with Baltimore in 2011: 377 fantasy points
LeVeon Bell with Pittsburgh in 2014: 371 fantasy points
DeMarco Murray with Dallas in 2014: 361 fantasy points
Matt Forte with Chicago in 2014: 347 fantasy points
Matt Fore with Chicago in 2013: 339 fantasy points
LeSean McCoy with Philadelphia in 2013: 333 fantasy points
DEVONTA FREEMAN in 2015: 320 fantasy points
Arian Foster with Houston in 2011: 309 fantasy points


As you can see above, that puts him in exclusive company over five seasons. In fact, only Matt Forte managed the feat twice over that span. Freeman's 1634 total yards and 14 total touchdowns was impressive and at just 23 years of age his best seasons should be ahead of him.


LOOKING DEEPER INTO THE NUMBERS

One concern for Freeman's projection this season is how far he tumbled after a fast start last year. He started off on fire but by the mid-point of the season his numbers were very pedestrian as NFL defenses began to figure him out. Take a look:

GAMES 1 thru 8

709 rushing yards
4.7 yards per carry
9 rushing touchdowns
40 receptions
353 receiving yards
1 receiving touchdown
206.2 fantasy points


GAMES 9 thru 16

352 rushing yards
3.1 yards per carry
2 rushing touchdowns
33 receptions
225 receiving yards
2 receiving touchdowns
114.7 fantasy points


The above truly illustrates just how far off the map his numbers fell through the second half last year. He was on pace for one of the greatest running back fantasy seasons of all time but as defenses caught up to him, his game really tailed off.


THOUGHTS FOR 2016 He is better than he performed through the second half last season but likely not as dominating as he was in the first half. He has a great mix of quickness and cutting ability and is going to have his moments on the field. The 4 total touchdowns through the final eight games however is difficult to ignore and I can see his fantasy points dropping from 300+ down towards the 270 fantasy points level. He will still be a fantasy starter for a fantasy squad this year but I doubt he remains as a fantasy star going forward. He may even be pushed for playing time by 2nd year running back Tevin Coleman who also has a unique, potential productive style.
