Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Freeman continues to get significant work in this offense. While he hasn't been especially efficient with his opportunity, he's still worth plugging into your lineup as a low-end RB2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
His touches over the last three weeks are encouraging, as they've been heading in the right direction. He's totaled 15, 19, and 19 touches over the last three games, which brings his weighted opportunity in the same range as someone like David Johnson, though the offense is certainly less potent with less scoring opportunities. The Eagles are not a matchup to be aggressive with, especially when you're dealing with a dicey starting running back. Through six games, they've allowed just one team of running backs total more than 74 yards on the ground. Over the last four weeks, they've held the Bengals, 49ers, Steelers, and Ravens running backs to just 252 yards on 87 carries (2.90 yards per carry). Even going back to last year, the Eagles were not a team to run the ball on, as there were just three running backs who topped 66 yards on the ground. Freeman has averaged 3.0 targets per game over the last three weeks, so it's tough to rely on his usage through the air, though that is something I'd consider a strength to his game. He is a starting running back who should be locked into 14-plus touches in this game, so you can start him as ana high-end RB3/flex option, but don't expect him to singlehandedly carry your fantasy team to victory. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles are 7th against fantasy running backs, Freeman is a low-upside flex option on the road this week.
