Devonta Freeman, Falcons backfield a 'fantasy nightmare'

During a segment on NFL Network's episode of Gameday Morning, Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons believe that they have "a two-headed monster" in their backfield with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Rapoport added that the Falcons "consider Freeman their starter, but consider Coleman just as talented" and that "they try for equal touches for their playmakers" at the running back position.

Fantasy Impact:

This is a fantasy nightmare indeed. Freeman was one of the top running backs targeted in most fantasy leagues and is shaping up to be in a timeshare situation with Coleman, contrary to what occurred during the 2015 campaign. If this trend continues through Week 2's matchup with the Raiders, Freeman should be considered as a prime sell candidate before his value plummets entirely.
