Well that sucks....I was able to pick up Michel for cheap so my RB situation ended up being ok despite wasting a 3rd round pick on Freeman.  Looking at the WR's that were available at that point though (Thielen!) makes me sick.

 

We've got an IR spot so he'll just sit there just in case he comes back and has a big game at end of season....don't want those points going to a potential opponent.

Any chance he comes back yet this season? 

 

I was trying to move past Freeman's monumental bust of a season, but seeing this thread made me relive all the horrors.

 

I believe he is eligible to come back for Week 15. My best guess is they shut him down if their season is over before then. If they are still competing then there is a chance he plays. I have not heard any injury news but you will probably have wait til it gets closer to Week 15 to get an idea if he plays.

You know it Gonzo.  Thought I was set at Rb drafting Freeman, Cook and Elliott.  Then picked up Conner.  Still 4 and 4.  Weird season.

4for4 still recommending picking this guy up if your 100% making the playoffs. (Albeit for $1) Might be a little early to stash him.

If he's healthy he plays, I don't buy the shut him down if they are out of the playoffs.

The key date here is that while he is eligible to practice in  week 12.  If he starts practicing  in any way, this news will hit Sleeperbot mid-week (~Weds) and that's when he'll get picked up by the majority of owners.  I think the time to stash him will week 11 or prior to practice reports in week 12 (Tuesday)

I thought he couldn't play until Week 16.

You are going to gamble the fantasy championship game on a guy who hasn't played in two months and would be likely worked into a timeshare anyway?  And hold this guy for a month for that "opportunity?"  

 

Better advice: Don't do it.

This. But most people who are considering this are unlikely to have the opportunity to use him in the title game anyways

i was lucky enough to grab Lindsay and Chubbs of the WW and drafted J White but Devonta was my first RB taken at the end of the 2nd round. What an utter disappointment to the fans. if he had an average season i would have been happy but getting pretty much 1 loss from week 1 sucks. I hope he gets healthy and i will not draft him again. Good luck to all.

Any chance Freeman comes back this year?  Should Coleman owners worry?  Is he worth picking up as a FA just in case?

 

Not in time for the FF playoffs. And even if he did, would you really trust him at this point?

Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said there's "definitely" a chance running back Devonta Freeman could return off injured reserve this season. "He's back and doing well, and we're just going to take it week by week," Quinn said. "We're not ruling anything out, for sure. We'll just see where he's at, but he's definitely made a lot of progress."

He was on waivers in my half-PPR league so i've picked him up for my spare IR slot..........because why not.

Any news on this guy? I have him on my IR but I want to stash Ware there ROS since I’m not going to use him unless I have catastrophic injuries in Week 15. I’ve heard nothing if he will even come crack for the last couple of weeks.
