Scouting report

ATL RB Terron Ward - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Terron Ward rushed 31 times for 151 yards in five games last season for the Falcons. If there were an injury to either Devonta Freeman or Tevin Coleman (who is injury-prone), then Ward would step in as the team's No. 2 back. Given how Atlanta loves to rotate its running backs, Ward would see some volume in that scenario.

Fantasy Downside

Ward may not even make the roster if former South Florida quarterback-turned running back B.J. Daniels has a good preseason. Ward is also competing with fifth-rounder Brian Hill, who was the nation's third leading rusher in 2016 for Wyoming.

2017 Bottom Line

It will take a significant injury to either Freeman or Coleman for Ward to have fantasy value. Coleman does have some medical report history and is coming off an ankle injury suffered in the Super Bowl, but regardless, Ward isn't worth an investment on draft night.

ATL RB Terron Ward - Week 10, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Philadelphia
Terron Ward rushed for 30 yards on eight carries in the Falcons’ Week 9 win over the Buccaneers. He served as Devonta Freeman’s backup with Tevin Coleman out nursing a hamstring injury and will do so again this Sunday if Coleman can’t go. Ward ranks as our RB40 for Week 10 and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

ATL RB Terron Ward - Week 9, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Tampa Bay
Terron Ward rushed six times for 46 yards and caught his only target for 11 yards as the Falcons came from behind to beat the Packers in Week 8. Ward is currently serving as Devonta Freeman's backup with Tevin Coleman out with a hamstring injury. The Falcons are playing on a short week, so Coleman is unlikely to return Thursday night when the team visits the Bucs. Thus, Ward will remain Atlanta's No. 2 back until Coleman returns.

Ward is a hard runner who broke several tackles on his way to a 26-yard run last week versus Green Bay. He could see his workload increase this Thursday night as the Falcons look to avoid overusing Freeman (who reportedly is dealing with a hip pointer). That said, Ward ranks as our RB29 for Week 9 and is a risky fantasy play. He's only worth the gamble if you're desperate at running back, but he'll be a touchdown-dependent play in Week 9.

ATL RB Terron Ward - Week 8, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Green Bay
Terron Ward was promoted from the practice squad earlier this week due to Tevin Coleman's hamstring injury. With Coleman unlikely to play, Ward will serve as the Falcons backup running back behind workhorse Devonta Freeman. With Freeman expected to carry nearly the full load on Sunday versus the Packers, just keep Ward's name top-of-mind if Freeman suffers an injury. If Freeman and Coleman are ever both out, Ward is the most-likely candidate to be Atlanta's No. 1 back. For now, Ward ranks as our RB39 for Week 8 and can be avoided.

ATL RB Terron Ward - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Terron Ward made headlines last year as a player who turned heads in training camp. He was rewarded for his efforts with a roster spot and wound up playing in 13 games for the Falcons, rushing 29 times for 95 yards with one touchdown. If there is an injury, Ward is third on the team’s depth chart and could carve out a bigger role for himself as a complement to either Devonta Freeman or Tevin Coleman.

Fantasy Downside
As previously noted, unless there’s an injury to Freeman or Coleman, Ward isn’t going to see an increased role in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. Even then, it’s unlikely Ward makes enough of an impact to hold any sort of fantasy value. Coleman only played 12 games a year ago due to injury and Ward received just 29 carries total on the year. It would take both Freeman and Coleman going down for Ward to jump onto the fantasy radar.

2016 Bottom Line
Ward saw 205 snaps in 2015, with 114 coming on offense. He ranks as our 97th overall back and should be avoided on draft night. If you own Freeman or Coleman, just be aware that Ward is the next back off the bench in Atlanta. Otherwise, you’re not going to hear much from the former Oregon State product in 2016.

ATL RB Terron Ward - Week 5, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Washington
Terron Ward rushed 19 times for 72 yards and a touchdown while also adding 18 yards receiving on one catch in the Falcons Week 4 win over the Texans. Ward wound up having a productive fantasy day, but that was only because Atlanta led 41-0 at one point and pulled most of its starters. It allowed Ward to rack up a bunch of carries as Devonta Freeman took the fourth quarter off. With Tevin Coleman (ribs) expected to return soon, Ward will go back to being the Falcons No. 3 back. But after watching what he did against Houston, he's a name to remember if Atlanta's depth chart suffers any key injuries.

ATL RB Terron Ward - Week 4, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Houston
Terron Ward was Devonta Freeman's backup for Week 3 against Dallas, but didn't receive a carry in the Falcons 39-28 victory. Freeman played on 88 percent of Atlanta's snaps and there's no reason for the Falcons to adjust his playing time this week after he rushed for 141 yards and three touchdowns. Leave Ward on your waiver wire, even with Tevin Coleman expected to miss another week with a rib injury.
