Devonta Freeman being released by the Falcons

Devonta Freeman is being released by the Atlanta Falcons, freeing up more than $3M worth of cap space in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Freeman is being released after six seasons in Atlanta. The former fourth-round pick will hope to join a team in need of a veteran presence at the RB position. The Falcons meanwhile will need to fill the void left by Freeman, and currently the RBs next in line on the roster are Brian Hill and Ito Smith, both of whom are not accustomed to heavy workloads. Look for Atlanta to draft an RB and look at the free agent market for potential options at the position.

Devonta Freeman could be released by Falcons?

Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap isn't "unlimited".

Fantasy Impact

The Falcons have some salary cap issues this off-season and releasing Freeman would certainly open up some financial flexibility. The 27-year-old played in 14 games last year, rushing for 656 yards and scoring six touchdowns. His status will be one to monitor this off-season.

Devonta Freeman held in check in Week 17

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 18 times for 58 yards while hauling in 2-of-4 targets for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, the stout Tampa Bay front-seven held Freeman in check, limiting him to 73 total yards on 20 touches. A down year for Freeman with flashes of the past, he will look to bounce back in 2020.

Devonta Freeman scores twice in Week 16

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 13 times for 53 yards and a touchdown while hauling 9-of-11 targets for 74 yards and another score in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

This was one of Freeman's best outings of the year, finding the end zone for the second time in the past three games. Freeman will look to finish the year strong but may have a tough time doing so in a tough Week 17 matchup at Tampa Bay.

Devonta Freeman nets 55 yards in Week 15

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 39 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

It was another letdown performance for Freeman, who had a flat out terrible year. However, he has had a handful of pop games against plus opponents, something he will get in a Week 16 home bout against the Jaguars. Start Freeman with tempered expectations in Week 16. While the matchup is there, his production may just be too erratic to trust in the fantasy championship.
