Freeman decided to wait another week before signing and it looks like that will pay off for him. Saquon Barkley torn his ACL in Week 2, leaving a huge hole in the Giants running game. Freeman could step right in and earn a nice role here, although it could take a little time to get up to speed. Freeman will compete with Gallman for early down carries with Lewis likely picking up the third down and passing down work. Freeman had his last 1,000-yard rushing season and made his last Pro Bowl in 2016. In 14 games last season, Freeman averaged a career-low 3.6 yards on 184 rushing attempts and a career-low 4.4 yards on 243 touches. He's still only 28, and from a fantasy standpoint is worth adding for owners needing RB help or depth. The hope for owners is he ends up earning more work than Gallman on the early downs.
The story suggests Hill is likely to take over for Brees after this season, but it also doesn't rule out Brees heading to the bench this season if the team's current play continues on the same track. The story suggests the reason Hill's workload is down this year compared to the playoffs last season is maybe the Saints don't want to get Hill hurt, which means they may be planning to replace Brees with Hill at some point, maybe even sooner than later. The team did sign Jameis Winston in the offseason. If you haven't noticed by now, Hill is actually listed as a TE in many fantasy leagues, so Hill may be worth adding to your roster just to see how this plays out over the next couple of weeks.
