Falcons RBs to get more receptions in 2018

Among the changes Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian feels need to be made in 2018, he mentioned he would like to get Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman more touches in the passing game.

“They didn’t get enough touches, catching the ball out of the backfield,” Sarkisian said. “We have to find those opportunities for them.”

Fantasy Impact: 

After combining for 85 receptions in 2016, Freeman and Coleman had just 63 in 2017. Catching more passes would be an obvious boost to the PPR value of each running back. Freeman finished No. 14, while Coleman finished No. 26 in PPR points per game in 2017.
