Dan Harris

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.

Freeman goes against a Lions D that is 12th against fantasy running backs, but the Falcons are one of the best running games in the league and Freeman should still be a great play this week.McCoy struggled last week in Carolina and he has a tough matchup this week, but I would have a hard time sitting him against any opponent.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
The Lions did a good job stopping David Johnson in Week 1 and had little trouble with the Giants' running game last week, so I do worry about Freeman's upside. But as the goal-line back, he always has upside in this offense.McCoy was shut down by the Panthers last week and gets another painful matchup this week, but the Bills do play better at home. I expect we'll see a better game from Shady this week.
