Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) took limited practice reps Thursday. Freeman is going to play but he has a very tough matchup against the Eagles (No. 2 in RB aFPA).

Scouting Report

Divisional Round at Philadelphia Eagles

Devonta Freeman rushed 18 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ Wild Card victory over the Rams. Freeman didn’t tear up the stat sheet but it was a gritty performance from the veteran back, who was forced to perform on a slick track all night. On his lone touchdown, Freeman was basically carried into the end zone by center Alex Mack.

Freeman has a difficult matchup on Saturday when the Falcons visit the Eagles in the Divisional Round. Philadelphia has the second-ranked defense against fantasy running backs so Freeman could struggle. Ranked as our No. 5 RB for this weekend, view Freeman more as an RB2 than a bona fide RB1.
