Falcons RB Antone Smith (fractured leg) running 'almost full force'

Thursday, May 21, 2015, 12:33pm

Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons running back Antone Smith, who suffered a fractured right leg while covering a punt against Carolina on Nov. 16, has started running during his rehabilitation.

“The recovery is going pretty good,” Smith said on Tuesday. “I’m up and running. I’m almost full force, but not quite where I need to be. In time, that will take care of itself.”

Smith is not likely to be cleared when the Falcons open their organized team activities on Tuesday.

Smith believes that he’s a fit for the team’s new outside-zone blocking scheme.

“It’s a fit for my skill set, but it’s a fit for anybody that wants to run the ball,” Smith said. “They want to run the ball here and that’s the biggest thing. They want to run the ball. I don’t care who’s the running back you want to be in this scheme right here. I’m happy for this scheme.”

Fantasy Impact:

Along with Devonta Freeman, Smith is a reason we're tepid about rookie Tevin Coleman. It's possible that Coleman wins a feature job in the Falcons' backfield, but Freeman showed some pass-catching chops as a rookie and Smith has racked up 518 yards and seven touchdowns on 44 career touches.

Scouting Report

Week 11: Smith vs. Panthers
Antone Smith rushed four times for three yards in the Falcons’ Week 10 win over the Bucs. The shine on Smith has clearly faded as he hasn’t scored a touchdown in three straight games after scoring a total of five TDs in his first six games. The Falcons tried to use him on a few outside runs last week but poor blocking and his inability to break tackles lead to his poor stat line. Avoid him in all fantasy formats. There's simply not enough touches.
