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.
