Falcons RB Devonta Freeman: "I feel like we can run against any defense"

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is ready to take on the Patriots this week.

"I feel like we can run against any defense," Freeman said. "I don't care who they are. Not trying to talk cocky, but how we prepare and how we work, we can run against any defense."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Falcons rank 11th in the NFL in rushing—120.6 rushing yards per game. The Patriots allow 115.8 rushing yards per game—12th-most in the NFL.

As McClure noted, the Pats also have the worst pass defense in the league and RBs have taken advantage of that, as the Pats are allowing an average of 69 receiving yards per game to the RB position.

The Freeman/Tevin Coleman duo has combined for an average of 47.6 receiving yards per game. It's a great matchup for both this week, and we have Freeman ranked as our No. 10 RB and Coleman as our No. 20 RB in PPR leagues.
