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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In Week 16, Devonta Freeman had 13 rushing attempts for 53 yards and a touchdown, nine receptions on ten targets for 74 yards and a touchdown, and was the half PPR RB3.

The Falcons are out of the playoff picture but they were essentially out of the picture after a 1-7 start to their season. Monitor Week 17 news closely, but the Falcons are planning on playing their starters at the time of writing this blurb. It is unknown how long the starters will play but the starters could play the majority of the game if it stays competitive. This matchup has one of the highest over/unders (48) of the week.

Tampa Bay is the best defense against running backs, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Freeman ranked as a mid-range half PPR RB2. On paper, this is a brutal matchup and the exact opposite of the cakewalk matchup Freeman had against Jacksonville last week. For reference, the Jaguars defense is second to last against running backs.
