Expect Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman to bounce back in 2019

When Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman and former Falcon Tevin Coleman were healthy and playing, they were the best duo in the league. In addition to their different running styles, they each had superior receiving abilities. During the weeks where one of the two was not in the lineup, the other half was expected to shoulder the load and usually did so successfully.

With Coleman headed to San Francisco to reunite with former Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, that leaves Freeman to take back number one running back duties as opposed to a 1A type role he’s been accustomed to as of late.
