The Atlanta Falcons have released long time running back Devonta Freeman.
The #Falcons are releasing RB Devonta Freeman, source says, saving more than $3M against the salary cap and moving on from their former starter.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 16, 2020
It’s now been two years since we’ve seen Freeman have any true fantasy impact, mostly due to injuries. He only played two games in 2018 and played 14 in 2019. He managed to finish a top 30 back this year so there still might be some value in him if he lands in the right situation. I doubt he’ll be a bellcow for any team, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him land in a young backfield as a veteran presence. On the flipside, the Falcons are going to be running back shopping this offseason.
