Freeman gained 521 yards and five touchdowns on 130 carries (4.0 YPC), but was never able to beat out undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay (192 rushes for 1,037 yards, a 5.4 YPC). Some believe that Freeman will usurp Lindsay in his second season, and Lindsay’s absence (due to wrist surgery) from spring practices has allowed Freeman to operate as the RB1. Lindsay was so much more productive than Freeman last season that he’s going to have to fall on his face to lose the lead back job. Being undrafted, Lindsay probably has less room for error than a typical incumbent starter.
