Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is the clear-cut number one running back in Atlanta and there is no clear cut No. 2 right now, according to head coach Dan Quinn. (Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

With Tevin Coleman no longer around, Freeman's main competition at running back is Ito Smith, Qadree Ollison, and Brian Hill, with Smith being the assumed top candidate. The main thing holding Freeman back the last couple of years has been his health, and fantasy owners will have to take that into account when deciding if they are going to take him inside the first three rounds of fantasy drafts, which is where he is currently being drafted.
