Fantasy Impact:

Still feeling the lingering symptoms of a concussion suffered in Week 10, Freeman is officially ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay. Because he is missing his second straight game with the head injury, his ROS future is concerning. As a result, Freeman owners should begin to target Terron Ward on waivers as a just in case option. Tevin Coleman will remain the Falcons' RB1 in a favorable Week 12 matchup against the Buccaneers.

Tevin Coleman gains the most fantasy impacts from news of Devonta Freeman being out again this week. In the games Freeman missed, Coleman received 21 touches. This week, Coleman draws a tasty matchup versus Tampa Bay. The Bucs defense gave up 100+ rushing yards in six games so far this season and eight rushing TDs. Terron Ward becomes a bench stash in deeper fantasy leagues. However, Freeman completed limited practices this week and should pass protocol before Week 13 tilt against Minnesota.
