Devonta Freeman :: Player Page
Smitty’s Take: Tough break for all Devonta Freeman owners, as the runner is having groin surgery. On IR, he will sit a minimum of eight weeks. That makes both Ito Smith and Tevin Coleman extremely valuable for the rest of the season. There is a chance both share carries enough to destroy any kind of high-end RB2-type value within this situation, but there is also a chance one thrives and cranks out top 10RB numbers down the stretch. Coleman has the edge, but don’t count out Smith (a top 1-3 waiver wire add for Week 7). Freeman is still young, 26, so he still could have a future in this league, and with the Falcons, as he is getting paid big bucks; his 2018 outlook, though, is about as murky as it gets.
Are Derrick Henry and Devonta Freeman both big-time fantasy football steals in 2019? Smitty talks about this and more on this segment of The Fantasy Football Show.

|2.04||Devonta Freeman||RB||ATL||Freeman has top 5-10 overall appeal, yet he can be had at this value, which means he's low-risk and high-reward.|
|2.08||Keenan Allen||WR||LAC||While we like Allen, I think it's too risky to make him a second-drafted player. We get most will disagree, but there are just safer options, like a Devonta Freeman or an AJ Green.|
