Two young RB's with bright futures. Who do you have?

Freeman has more competition in the backfield, but is Coleman moving on next year? Gordon hasn't cracked 1000 yards yet, or played a full season, but broke out last year scoring 10 TD's and showing he can be more involved in the passing game.

Both in decent offenses that have a lot of opportunities. Which would you rather own?

I like Gordon because he is the only game in town. Freeman is probably the better talent, but Coleman will take some touches away from him. My biggest concern of Gordon is his injury bug.

Melvin Gordon for sure. More complete runner, can catch, great situation in LA. Devonta's a great receiver but I still think even Tevin may be a more complete RB talent.

Freeman is the better talent. I'm still wanting to see more from Melvin. His first year was a dud bc of TDs and then he swung pretty heavy in the other direction. I think they'll come down just slightly (9/10 total), but last year was a better indicator obviously. YPC though? Still down at 3.9 and that was a big upgrade for him. (RBs with 100+ carries: Freeman was 10th and Gordon was 29th). Yes, Melvin has more of a workload but I don't think they'll pay Coleman after his contract ends next year bc why would you pay both Freeman and Coleman? Ending two years in a row for injuries doesn't bode well for Melvin either.

Also of note: Atlanta has the better offensive line and lost more of their receiving production than LAC last year (14.23% of targets v 4.17%)

I may be a bit of a LAC hater though, tbh.

LA improved the o line this off season. And Anthony Lynn is the coach. Dude wants to run the ball!

I think Melvin Gordon is garbage. His value, for me, comes from situation and that is not conducive to long term fantasy success. Plus, he has a history of injuries.

Devonta Freeman has the talent and talent always prevails.

I'm with you on the injuries, Gordon has to stay healthy for the full season.
But I think Freeman's value comes just as much from his situation as Gordon's. Doesn't mean he is a better talent.
