Draft note
by John Paulsen
Freeman was the No. 1 overall running back in 2015 and followed that up with a top 6-7 finish in 2016, depending on the format. He turned in fringe RB1 numbers in 2017 before multiple injuries cost him all but two games last season. Freeman is still just 27 years old and now his primary competition, Tevin Coleman, is out of the way, so he should be in line for a big workload, provided he can stay healthy. Ito Smith will serve as his backup, but hasn’t yet flashed like Coleman did while he was in Atlanta.

ATL RB Devonta Freeman - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Arizona Cardinals

Freeman ended his scoreless streak. He finished Week 5 with 11 rushing attempts for 30 yards and finished as the half PPR RB16 thanks to five receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown. Freeman out-touched Ito Smith 16 to 11 and out-snapped him 40 to 35. These numbers support Freeman as Atlanta’s lead back but Smith’s usage continues to frustrate fantasy owners.

This matchup has the potential to turn into a shootout. Offenses playing against Arizona average the sixth-most plays per game, per Evan Silva and this game has the second-highest over/under (51). Freeman has a decent chance of finding the endzone two weeks in a row. 4for4’s rankings expert John Paulsen has Freeman ranked as a low-end RB2.
