Devonta Freeman Fantasy Football News 2021

The Bills have signed RB Devonta Freeman to their practice squad, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's possible that he's elevated and active for Saturday night's game against the Ravens after Buffalo lost RB Zack Moss, but Freeman wouldn't be a fantasy option.

The Giants placed RB Devonta Freeman on IR with a hamstring injury suffered on Thursday. He'll miss at least the next 3 games and can be dropped in most fantasy leagues. With Freeman out the last 2 games, RB Wayne Gallman has totaled 26 carries and 3 targets to Alfred Morris' 17 carries and 1 target and Dion Lewis' 3 carries and 5 targets.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman suffered a "minor aggravation" of his ankle injury on Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "His hope is still to play Sunday," Rapoport adds. We'll see what Freeman is able to do on Friday.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to play against the Eagles this weekend. Freeman would presumably return as New York's lead back, although he'd just be a RB3 or flex in fantasy lineups.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against Washington. The G-Men went with a 3-man committee backfield with Freeman out last week: 13 touches for Wayne Gallman, 8 for Alfred Morris and 2 for Dion Lewis. Gallman is the best fantasy bet here but is just a low-upside RB3.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. That leaves the backfield to Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis. Gallman should handle most of the rushing load and at least some of the pass-catching work. But he's still just a low-upside RB3 vs. a Tampa defense sitting 4th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. If he can't go on Monday night vs. the Bucs, Wayne Gallman would step in as New York's lead back. Try to avoid this situation against Tampa's stout RB defense.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman was knocked out of Thursday night's game against the Eagles with a 3rd-quarter ankle injury. We'll look for an update on the severity. Wayne Gallman closed out the loss as New York's lead back and would be the best bet for carries if Freeman misses time. But a Week 8 matchup vs. the Bucs would leave Gallman as an unattractive fantasy play.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman is active for today's game against the 49ers. He joins Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman in New York's Saquon Barkley-less backfield. It's a situation to try to avoid in Week 3 fantasy lineups as we wait to see how snaps and touches will be divvied.

The Giants have agreed to a deal RB Devonta Freeman. The move comes as no surprise after RB Saquon Barkley went down with a torn ACL in Week 2, leaving the G-Men with only RBs Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman. Freeman should emerge as the lead back here -- although that probably won't happen in Week 3. He's certainly worth owning in all fantasy leagues, but don't expect him to be a real difference-maker. The 28-year-old looked like a guy running on empty in Atlanta last season, mustering just 3.6 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per catch. He'll be running behind a subpar offensive line in New York.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's a 1-year deal for Freeman worth "up to" $3 million.

Bears RB David Montgomery was carted off the practice field on Wednesday after suffering a non-contact injury to his left leg. Sirius' Adam Caplan hears that the team does not believe the injury is to Montgomery's knee. Still, this sounds like a potentially serious issue. Chicago doesn't have a viable replacement for Montgomery on the roster, with the diminutive Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce next up on the depth chart. Cordarrelle Patterson has reportedly been taking reps at RB throughout training camp but wouldn't be a full-time replacement. Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman would make sense for Chicago if Montgomery is forced to miss a bunch of time.

The Falcons have released RB Devonta Freeman, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move saves Atlanta more than $3 million against the 2020 cap. Freeman just turned 28 but looked like a guy running on empty last season. He averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and ranked dead last in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades among 45 RBs with 100+ attempts. We'll see what kind of interest Freeman garners on the open market. His departure leaves the Falcons with Ito Smith and Brian Hill atop the RB depth chart, making Atlanta 1 of the top destinations for a free-agent or rookie RB.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He practiced on Thursday and Friday after sitting out on Wednesday, which looks like was just a rest day. Freeman has racked up 42 touches in 2 games since returning from his foot injury but has a brutal matchup on Sunday vs. San Francisco’s 2nd-ranked RB defense.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does on Friday and then how Atlanta lists him on the final injury report. Hopefully you can avoid Freeman in this weekend's brutal matchup against the 49ers.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman missed Wednesday's practice with a knee issue. This could just be a veteran's day off early in the week, but Freeman's status will be worth checking on again tomorrow. Of course, he's a shaky fantasy play against the 49ers this week anyways.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) will play against the Saints on Thursday night. RB Brian Hill was horrible as the lead back over the past 2 weeks, so Freeman should step right back into a big role. He averaged 12.1 carries and 5 targets per game over the first 8 weeks of the season. Don't expect great efficiency vs. New Orleans, but volume has Freeman back in the RB2 mix.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Saints. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn expects RB Devonta Freeman (foot) to resume practicing this week. He still seems unlikely to play against the Saints on Thanksgiving, but this sets him up for a Week 14 return. RB Brian Hill has been awful as Atlanta's lead back the past 2 weeks.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Brian Hill played 60% of the offensive snaps and handled 15 carries and 3 targets with Freeman out last week. Expect a similar role for Hill on Sunday — although this is a brutal matchup vs. the #3 ranked RB defense.
