2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Atlanta Falcons
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Falcons are a tough team to gauge. The offense is top notch but the defense still has some holes. If the defense can make some improvements, Atlanta can challenge for the division title and make the playoffs. But the holes defensively probably prevent this team from making a long run into the playoffs. Either way, Atlanta will be a tough weekly opponent because of the explosive offense.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
He is a rookie but things sure look good for running back Tevin Coleman this season. He seems a great fit for the Falcons new offense and has a good chance to take over the starting job sooner than later. Devonta Freeman has shown flashes of good things but Coleman has a better overall skillset for the Falcons. Coleman is an explosive player with big-play ability. He can top more than 1,000 total yards as a rookie and could be a star in a few more seasons.
FANTASY DUD
As mentioned, Devonta Freeman has done some good things with past chances, but the rookie back might be the better overall fit for the offense. It wouldn‚??t surprise to see Freeman open the season as the starter for the Falcons, but Coleman should take over the starting job before long. Freeman is worth a draft pick but don‚??t overvalue him come draft day. He should get fewer touches as the season progresses and Coleman starts to shine.
