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 contract talks poised to heat up

Regarding impending walk-year running back Devonta Freeman's contract, Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff told the media that the team, and Freeman's agent, are in a "good space."

Fantasy Impact

Freeman, who is due $1.838 million in 2017, the final year of his contract, is poised to begin negotiating a new deal this offseason. The three-year veteran rusher has totaled at least 1,541 yards and 13 touchdowns in each of the last two seasons and is showing no signs of slowing down, even with the emergence of Tevin Coleman in Atlanta's backfield. Freeman will likely agree to a new deal before the start of the 2017 campaign. However, if talks break down, Freeman could be a candidate to hold out.
