Summary

Devonta Freeman's 2017 season mirrored the overall offensive regression by Atlanta following Kyle Shanahan's electric 2016 version. Freeman missed two games, the most of his career to-date, and predictably dropped from a by-far career-high 4.8 yards-per-carry in 2017. Freeman also saw a significant dip in red zone opportunities, a stark 30% drop on a per-game basis from 4.3 to 3.0 (combining rushes and targets). Through the air, Freeman saw a dip of nearly a catch per game. Freeman also fumbled a career-high four times. On the positive side, Freeman had the fourth-highest success rate of running backs with at least 100 rushes in 2017, behind only Todd Gurley, Dion Lewis, and Ezekiel Elliott. Freeman was even better in success rate on first down carries, ranking behind only Todd Gurley and Alvin Kamara in the category. (June 3)
