2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY FALLOUT: PRIME CHANCE FOR TEVIN COLEMAN TO PUSH DEVONTA FREEMAN ASIDE

It has become increasingly clear over the last season or so that Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman might have reached a tipping point with his all-out hard-charging running style given the fact that he is now slated to miss the next 2-3 games with a knee injury.  Already having a history of concussions that go back to his college days, Freeman will miss games for the second season in a row due to knee trouble.  Still just 26, Freeman was knocked a bit coming out of college due to an upright running style that makes him a big target to hit by defenders and perhaps now we are seeing the physical fallout.  What this means now is that backup Tevin Coleman has a prime chance to shine and show what he could do for an extended run and this carries with it some terrific upside given the fact he has the ability to start for most teams in the NFL.  Coleman is a very good combination of speed and pass-catching ability and he should be graded as a strong RB 2 for the time that Freeman is out.  Also like in New Orleans with Alvin Kamara playing over the suspended Mark Ingram, Coleman has the chance to steal the gig if he can light things up.  Since Coleman is fresh with not a lot of wear on his tires, we like his chances to at least be an impact player for the next few weeks while Freeman is out.
