This isn't a huge surprise, but with Ito Smith also done for the year, it solidifies Tevin Coleman as a workhorse the rest of the way. He is a solid RB2 this week despite the tough matchup against the Panthers.
ATL RB Devonta Freeman - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Devonta Freeman rushed eight times for 32 yards in the Falcons’ Week 5 loss to the Steelers. He also caught two passes for an additional nine yards but suffered a knee injury, leaving his Week 6 status in doubt. This is quickly turning into a lost season for Freeman and the Falcons, who are now 1-4 to start the year. Assuming Freeman doesn’t play, Tevin Coleman will be Atlanta’s No. 1 back, and rookie Ito Smith will be promoted again to No. 2.
