Freeman had groin surgery in October, but is expected to be ready for training camp

Summary

Devonta Freeman missed all but two games in 2018 with a groin injury, sending the previous starting line stalwart for the Falcons' offense to the sideline. Freeman was previously one of the more productive two-way running backs in the NFL. While undersized compared to the positional prototype, Freeman runs big inside and has been optimized when at his best in space for Atlanta's potent offense. Tevin Coleman departed in free agency, a notable depth chart change from 2019 as second-year back Ito Smith is penciled in as the secondary option to Freeman's starting status. Freeman's usage has waned since his more than 22 touches per game peak in 2015 to 16-17 touches per contest his past two healthy seasons. (April 13)
