FOX's Jay Glazer reports that the Falcons are placing RB Devonta Freeman. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the veteran will have groin surgery and hopes to return this season. The 8-week timeline on being designated to return from IR wouldn't bring him back until at least Week 15, though. That puts both Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith into play as potential weekly fantasy starters the rest of the way. Coleman played 38 snaps to Smith's 31 against Tampa, but Smith beat him 11-10 in rushing attempts and matched Coleman's 2 targets. Coleman remains the slightly better bet for touches and the stronger bet for yardage production the rest of the way.
The Ravens promoted RB Devonta Freeman to the active roster. He gets the call over RB Le'Veon Bell, at least for this week. We're projecting the pecking order in the backfield vs. Kansas City to be Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and then Freeman -- but we'll continue to keep a close eye on this backfield.
The Ravens have signed RB Devonta Freeman to their practice squad. "The idea is that Freeman will be promoted to Ravens’ active roster," ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted. It's unclear when Freeman will be ready to join the active roster. He joins Le'Veon Bell on Baltimore's practice squad, with Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon on the active roster. There's a lot of settling that needs to happen in this backfield. In the short term, Williams is the best fantasy bet.
The Saints released RB Devonta Freeman. The 29-year-old mustered just 3.7 yards per carry this preseason and is just about out of gas. We'll see what New Orleans does with RB Latavius Murray, who's been mentioned as a cut candidate.
The Saints reached a 1-year deal with RB Devonta Freeman on Saturday, following a tryout for the veteran. Freeman obviously won't challenge the roles of Alvin Kamara or Latavius Murray, but figures to compete with Tony Jones Jr., Dwayne Washington and rookie Stevie Scott for a spot behind them. Freeman averaged just 3.2 yards per rush over 54 carries with the Giants last year and made a stop on Buffalo's practice squad before getting to New Orleans. He turned 29 in March.
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.
