Freeman says he wants to be the highest-paid running back in the NFL, and he's got the chance in a contract year. Despite ranking 13th in carries last year, Freeman totaled the sixth-most fantasy points among running backs. After struggling a bit out of the gate, Freeman went on to score eight touchdowns in the final six regular season games. With Kyle Shanahan gone, the Falcons may go back to more of a one-back system.

Devonta Freeman, Falcons nearing an extension?

ESPN's Dianna Russini is reporting the Atlanta Falcons are "confident they'll have a deal done" with running back Devonta Freeman "by the first week of training camp."

Fantasy Impact

It appears the Falcons and Freeman are close to agreeing to terms on a new long-term contract extension. Per reports, the Falcons are "confident" that it will get done by the first week of July's training camp. Freeman, who would enter his walk year if a new deal is not agreed upon, is currently slated to earn $1.838 million in 2017 and is vastly underpaid compared to his production since becoming Atlanta's featured back in 2015. Freeman has accumulated at least 1,541 total yards and 13 touchdowns in each of the past two seasons.
