Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tevin Coleman rushed seven times for 15 yards in the Falcons’ Week 5 loss to the Steelers, adding two catches for 15 additional yards. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is hardly the problem in Atlanta anymore, as the Falcons defense has been decimated by injuries. That said, why Sarkisian refuses to use Coleman more in the passing game is mind-boggling, especially considering how much pressure Matt Ryan saw in Pittsburgh. Nevertheless, Coleman will be a RB2 option on Sunday when the Falcons host the Bucs because Devonta Freeman’s (knee) status is in doubt. Monitor in the situation leading up to Sunday and if Coleman starts, get him in your lineup. He has a great matchup against a Tampa Bay defense that loves to give up yards and points to opposing offenses.
