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.

Injury Predictor

A concussion -- his 2nd in 3 months -- caused both of Freeman's missed games in 2017. But don't overlook the knee troubles that limited him in other outings. Freeman sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee. Those issues and a shoulder stinger seemed to limit his work in several other contests. But he avoided post-season surgery and took part in OTAs. Freeman missed just 1 total game over his previous 3 seasons -- also for a concussion -- and hits 2018 as just a moderate injury risk among RBs.
