Fantasy Players on Each Team to Exceed Expectations: NFC South Edition

As usual, the NFC South division is a fantasy player’s dream.

Coming into 2019, Devonta Freeman has taken a hit. His injuries have made it difficult to trust him, and it has hurt his draft stock entering this year. However, his ADP has taken such a big hit, he has turned into a great value. Right now, Freeman is being drafted outside of RB1 territory, which is a great value, considering the departure of Tevin Coleman. Ito Smith will get opportunities as Freeman’s backup, but I doubt he will pick up all of Coleman’s volume.

As for injury concern, before last season, Freeman only missed three games in four years. I don’t necessarily think Freeman should be considered injury-prone. He has had almost an entire year off from taking hits, so I expect his body to be ready to take on a workhorse role, like in 2016. A legitimate concern is the addition of Dirk Koetter as the offensive coordinator. In Freeman’s rookie year, Koetter called plays for the Falcons, and he only converted 65 carries into 248 yards (less than four yards per carry). While Koetter has never had an extremely successful rushing offense, he’s also never had a running back as talented as Freeman in his sixth year.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
