Can't believe there was no thread for this guy already started...

Anyhow, Tevin who? Freeman looked awesome in the first game where he got a full workload. Showed how good of a fit he is for the offense, we all knew he was a good pass catcher but he also ran with both elusiveness and power as well! And he did it against a fairly stout Cowboys D that was stuffing the run the first couple of weeks...

I think this guy should be the starter, but at the very least he staked his claim to at least 50% of the work should Atlanta maintain a RBBC when Coleman comes back...

I've started the #1 overall running back a grand total of zero times. Maybe I need to start him now. For some reason I still don't have confidence in him.

Obviously, he looked great. Not sure if a switch was flipped or what his deal was, but he ran with much more authority and decisiveness than he had previously. I can't imagine that Coleman will have his job back when he returns.

He didn't look great in the earlier games
Even this game he took a while to start showing the power and determination

I wonder if this was a one week thing or now he has his confidence up and the Shanny scheme is kicking in. Either way if ATL can run the ball a bit I love it for the impact on the whole offense

I think it still may be some form of a committee, but Freeman showed he deserved carries, I don't think it is going to be Coleman taking over and being a feature back... I still think the Coleman hype train is just a lot of hot air, while he certainly looks good to me, I just don't see a future stud in him... I don't see Freeman ever being a stud either, but I like his talent more than I do Colemans...

+1

I feel both have looked pretty good, but exactly, I don't see a rock star path for either of them. If one goes out and the committee goes away, one could be very valuable.

Yeah I wasn't suggesting it will be all Freeman if that's what it sounded like.
Was more risk of Freeman getting marginalized before this game, no seems destined for a split

Coleman is extremely unlikely to play this week. Devonta Freeman will start and is a good bet for 20 touches. He will be a RB2 against the Texans.

Remember when De'mond Parker subbed in a game and tore up the Bears (I believe), that's Freeman.
Also Parker had the best TD celebration of all time in that game when after a TD run he fanned his feet like they were on fire.

7 tds in 2 games is impressive. I thought I was a genius when I drafted him, theN traded him be a use I thought I misevaluayed him. Now I am the dunce who traded him. ( one of the trades was for Foster's back up straight up...ouch)

I think we can put the 1 hit wonder talk to bed... he has been incredible for 4 straigt games now. In six games, and only 4 of those where he has gotten the majority of the work, he has amassed 500 rushing yards, 800 total yards and 10 TDs! Pretty impressive...

He is racking up the points but he still doesn't look that good with the eye test imho. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying he's bad but I don't see uber talent here

Are you sure you are watching the right game?! laughing Seriously though, specifically what about his game "doesn't look that good" to you? That blanket statement makes no sense to me when all the evidence points to something else entirely.

For me, not only does he pass the eye test, he actually looks to be a better player than I thought he was. We all knew he was a good receiver and good in the open field, but what has really impressed me is how well he has been running inside, showing more strength and power than I expected, he is patient to a degree but when he sees a hole he hits it with a burst and gets up the field, showing good vision and setting up his blocks, and he has also been pretty good when called upon to pick up blitzes. I am not saying he is an all-world player at this point, but he is pretty damn good, easily a current top 10 NFL RB with top 5 upside.

Scratching my head why The Vag didn't start Freeman last night. Regardless of the Thursday Night game you gotta start the hot hand right?

That's an easy one...friggin Rob didn't submit a lineup before kickoff so he was locked out of using him. Sadly I am the 1-4 team. no

Christ, Andy catches all the breaks in this league!

JJ Watt for peanuts, #1RB playing against him left out of the line-up...

This dude is the real deal! When he hits the hole and explodes (keep your mind out of the gutters) for extra yards, it really makes it interesting when he touches the ball. Just hope he keeps this up because he is really fun to watch right now!!

I really do like that you own it though. Some people screw the pooch and don't acknowledge it at all or act like it's others problems.

I remember having him as my number 1 RB in his draft class. Runs so hard and I have loved him since he came in the league.

However. I'm trying to sell him everywhere I can. Great talent but the Atlanta offense was historically good and he won't quite achieve those numbers again without a Tevin Coleman injury.

Yeah I have liked him but man I bet he couldn't sign that deal quick enough. Take that money and run literally. I think they will kick themselves later but hey good on him. At least he got paid after showing what he could do.

Looks like its basically a 2 year deal with likely 3rd year then he gets cut. A lot for an RB but not a bad deal like Dwily or Jstew etc were
