Week 12: vs Minnesota Vikings
All RB vs MIN
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. On November 23rd, Falcon's head coach Dan Quinn stated 'For sure, we've got great belief in him [Tevin Coleman]. I have all the confidence in the world in him to play, if Devonta is not ready. And then we'll kind of cross that bridge as we get to it at the end.' Coleman lost a fumble last week and had just 17/48/0 on the ground vs. Indianapolis, with zero receptions, after Devonta Freeman opened the game ripping off 3/43/0 rushing before he got concussed (driving his DFS and season-long fantasy owners insane with speculations about what might have been...). Freeman has clearly been the stalwart of this stable during 2015 but it remains to be seen if he'll get his clearance to play on Sunday - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News as the week goes along to see if Freeman can practice (or not).
The Vikings' rush D allowed 34/124/0 to the Packers' backs last week; Oakland had 19/84/0 rushing against this team two games back, while the Rams had 36/160/1 rushing at Minnesota in their turn. To date, the Vikings rank 17th in the NFL averaging 110.1 yards rushing allowed per game, with five rushing scores allowed. Over the past four weeks, Minnesota averages 14.3 fantasy points given up to opposing backs (23rd in the NFL) - they have been up and down of late - many mediocre defenses yo-yo.
This looks like neutral matchup if Coleman is the guy for Atlanta - if Freeman can play upgrade it to good.
