Coleman has been decent this year for fantasy purposes, but the entire Atlanta offense has been somewhat underwhelming. That should change this weekend against the Patriots, particularly for Coleman. The Patriots allow the third-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and particularly struggle against pass-catching backs, allowing the most receiving yards and second-most receptions to the position. Coleman has 14 receptions on the season, and should be able to do some damage in the passing game. He makes a low-end RB2 here, with upside.

Tevin Coleman finds the end zone in Week 6

Tevin Coleman's nine carries against the Dolphins matched his season high set two weeks prior before the Falcons' bye. Coleman's longest run of the day was 20 yards, only managing 12 yards on his eight other attempts. In the late second quarter Coleman lunged for a six-yard rushing touchdown, his first of the season. He also caught his only pass target for a gain of four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Only managing to produce 36 yards of offense Coleman's fantasy day was undoubtedly salvaged by his rushing touchdown. It is encouraging to see the Falcons giving Coleman a near 50% workload in the offense. In PRR formats particularly Coleman can continue to be started with reasonable confidence, especially this week against a suspect Patriots run-defense.
