Falcons RB Tevin Coleman out with a hamstring strain

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman did not practice on Wednesday with a hamstring strain.

Coleman, who was selected in the third round of the draft out of Indiana, is competing with second-year back Devonta Freeman to win to the starting slot. Coleman has received reps with the first-team offense.

Fantasy Impact: 

Coleman is the new regime’s hand-picked running back, yet Devonta Freeman enters camp as the team’s RB1. We typically bet on the new guy, especially when the current coaching staff has no ties to the veteran they inherited, but Coleman is missing important practice reps with the injury. New OC Kyle Shanahan used a committee while in Cleveland, and we’re envisioning a three-headed rushing attack featuring Coleman, Freeman and the very dangerous Antone Smith.
