Freeman hasn't lit the world on fire with his rushing ability yet in 2017 (just 3.9 YPC), but he's managed to find the end zone three times in his first two games. He may have trouble continuing the latter trend against the Lions in Week 3, as Detroit allowed only five rushing touchdowns to running backs all last year. But the disparity between Freeman and Tevin Coleman's usage got larger in Week 2 (17-snap gap vs. 12-snap gap in Week 1), which is obviously a good sign for Freeman going forward. He's an RB1 in this matchup, as he will be most weeks, but his ceiling is a bit lower than it has been in either previous matchup this season.

Devonta Freeman receives workhorse treatment on SNF

Devonta Freeman rushed 19 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns, and added two catches for 16 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

To the delight of Devonta Freeman truthers, he got 21 touches and totaled 100 yards from scrimmage in this game, and the two goal line touchdown carries greatly increase his value. Freeman looked quick and powerful in this game and seems locked in as a mid-to-high RB1 moving forward. He could certainly return top 3 value at RB if he continues to see goal line work for the high-octane Falcons offense.
