Tevin Coleman Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman remains in the concussion protocol and did not practice on Friday. He has an extra day to get cleared with Atlanta heading to Tampa Bay for Monday Night Football, but Coleman isn't looking like a good bet to play in that one. His absence would turn Devonta Freeman into a workhorse and an elite RB1.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman sustained a concussion late in Thursday night's win over the Saints, HC Dan Quinn announced Friday. Coleman missed 2 games with a concussion back in 2015. He'll have 10 days to pass through the protocol this time around. We'll track his progress next week.

The Falcons and RB Devonta Freeman have agreed to a 5-year, $41.25 million extension, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. That $8.25 million annual average makes Freeman the highest-paid RB in the league. The extension locks him up in Atlanta through the 2022 season. Freeman will be 31 years old when the deal expires. This stabilizes the dynasty value of a RB who's finished top 6 in both PPR and non-PPR scoring the past 2 seasons. It also puts a dent in RB Tevin Coleman's ceiling. He's signed in Atlanta for another 2 seasons.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman has put on 10-15 pounds this offseason, according to CBS Sports' Pete Prisco. Prisco classifies it as "good weight." We don't have any concrete data, but it sure seems like RBs who add weight tend to struggle. It's especially concerning for a RB like Coleman who relies on speed and explosion. We're not moving him in the RB rankings, but he already felt overvalued at his 5th-round ADP.

The 2016 Falcons led the league in scoring and finished 2nd in total yards. So, not surprisingly, they don't want to alter the offense, despite the departure of OC Kyle Shanahan. "We love the way that we attack, and it took a lot of work to put that system in place," HC Dan Quinn said. "Along with [GM Thomas Dimitroff], we have a real emphasis now on how we can fit guys into that system. It's very important that we stay consistent with that." In theory, it's good news for QB Matt Ryan and Atlanta's skill-position guys. But we'll see exactly how similar the offense is under new OC Steve Sarkisian.

The Falcons are set to hire Steve Sarkisian as their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 42-year-old has spent the bulk of his coaching career so far in the NCAA. His only NFL experience was as the Raiders' QB coach in 2004. (Kerry Collins was his starter.) Sarkisian has loads of talent to work with in Atlanta. But, at least on paper, he's a significant downgrade from Kyle Shanahan.

After RB Devonta Freeman scored twice in each of Atlanta's previous 2 games, it was RB Tevin Coleman's turn in Los Angeles on Sunday. He hit pay dirt from 6 yards out in the 2nd quarter on a screen pass and scored a 6-yard rushing TD in the 3rd quarter. Coleman finished with 36 yards on 8 carries and 19 more on 2 catches. Freeman, meanwhile, totaled just 8 touches (6 carries, 2 catches). Both guys were pulled late in the blowout for RB Terron Ward. Freeman remains the slightly better fantasy bet going forward, but Coleman looks like a solid starter. Especially next week against San Francisco's league-worst RB defense.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Coleman averaged 8.5 carries and 3.8 targets in his 6 full games this season and should be looking at a similar workload this weekend.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) was on the field for the team's post-bye-week practice on Monday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. Coleman will be just a RB3 or flex for that tough draw. He has easier remaining matchups vs. Kansas City (Week 13) and San Francisco (Week 15).

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that he expects RB Tevin Coleman to be ready to practice in full next week, after the team returns from its Week 11 bye, ESPN.com reports. Coleman has missed the past 3 games with a hamstring strain. RB Devonta Freeman totaled just 40 carries (including 12 or fewer twice) and 9 receptions over that span. Coleman will present significant fantasy upside down the stretch if he proves -- and remains -- healthy Week 12 against Arizona.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He did some running off to the side of practice this week and should be ready after the Week 11 bye. Devonta Freeman gets another game as Atlanta’s feature back in what could turn into a shootout in Philadelphia.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game against the Eagles. RB Devonta Freeman has totaled 28 carries and 6 catches with Coleman out the past 2 games.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Bucs. As expected. We'll see if he can get back for Week 10's game vs. the Eagles, but Atlanta has a Week 11 bye. RB Devonta Freeman will again control the backfield on Thursday. He played 73% of the snaps and handled 15 touches last week.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He didn't practice all week and might be looking at a multi-game absence. Devonta Freeman will operate as Atlanta's feature back on Sunday and is a strong bet for 20+ touches.

The Falcons have signed RB Stevan Ridley and promoted RB Terron Ward from the practice squad. It's a sure sign that RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) won't play against the Packers this weekend. Ridley and Ward won't combine for more than 10 touches in that one. RB Devonta Freeman is a good bet for 20+.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is "unlikely" to play against the Packers this weekend. The team is still awaiting test results on the severity of Coleman's injury, but we were reminded this week of the risk of pushing a RB through a hamstring injury. Coleman's absence would put RB Devonta Freeman in a feature-back role. He averaged 17.6 carries and 4.9 catches per game in that spot last year.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman suffered a hamstring injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman told reporters on Wednesday that he'll play against the Broncos this weekend, despite his sickle cell issue that could cause problems. Coleman plans to "stay hydrated and communicate with doctors." It's still possible -- and probably likely -- that his workload is limited. That, plus the tough matchup, makes Coleman better off on fantasy benches for Week 5.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman might be limited in Denver this coming week by his sickle cell trait. The high altitude of Sports Authority Field can cause complications. "With my sickle cell, I have no idea if I’ll play there,’’ Coleman admitted. "I really don’t know how I’ll feel or how it will be like. I’ve never been to Denver." We'll keep an eye on this situation, but Coleman owners should be making other plans for Week 5. The situation obviously boosts RB Devonta Freeman's outlook.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn confirmed that his team will continue to deploy a committee backfield. "We know both these guys are going to be a factor,'' Quinn said of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. "We’re going to utilize them both. Both of them are going to be a really big factor in what we’re doing." Freeman out-snapped Coleman just 36 to 32 in the opener and finished with just 2 more touches (15 to 13). Coleman was much more effective, totaling 117 yards vs. Freeman's 40. This remains a fluid situation, with Coleman capable of earning an even bigger role if he continues to outplay his backfield mate.
