Make yourself useful and predict 30 points next time

Here's my math on Coleman: Shanahan RB touches the last 5 years 2018 - 364 rushes / 66 targets / 53 rec 2017 - 345 rushes / 124 targets / 80 recs 2016 - 345 rushes / 105 targets / 85 rec

Hot off the presses! This is huge for my retroactive points league, thanks Marty.

After this season, I don't think the Falcons will pay him what he wants.   I think he'll probably test free agency.   Although the Falcons are in a pretty precarious RB situation if they're just going to roll with oft-injured Freeman and Ito as their top two.

Was really looking forward to keeping him but honestly after what he showed this year, I'm not so sure.  I think he is a better change of pace back than a featured back.

 

Ya, reminds  me of the Lamar Miller situation. I think Coleman's ceiling is about Lamar's

Sarkasian fired

Freeman consistently injured

Ino on a cheap rookie contract sharing the backfield

 

What would you do?

I would go wherever FA takes me for the bigger payday

Do you mean ITO smith? If anything the falcons didnt commit to the run. Thats why Matt Ryan had inflated fantasy stats.

Possible landing spots include Jets, Raiders, Bucs, Colts, 9ers. It'll be interesting to see where Bell and Ingram wind up.

Honestly there aren't that many RB needy teams going in to the '19 season.

 

 

You just named 16% of the league :lol:

you can add texans,miaimi,ravens,eagles,colts,KC

and then add teams who have starters battling injuries redskins,jax, bills,packers,rams,falcons,steelers

 

NFL teams are always looking to upgrade or strenghten the rb position

I would argue far less than in years past. However, I would agree that most NFL teams are always looking to upgrade the RB position. I just don't know that most teams are going to want to pay Coleman what he wants.

I dont thnk coleman is a stud talent however people were surprised at the deals dion lewis and mkinnon got in FA last year too. Neither of them were a primary rb before FA. Coleman at least filled that role with freeman injured

I can’t think of a single team that would be willing to fight for his services

 

"Willing to fight for his services"?  Sure.  I don't see anyone getting into a bidding war or anything.  But I think Kyle Shanahan would take a stab for the right price.  Also wouldn't be shocked if Kansas City brought him in.

Both teams don't ask their starter to carry a ton of volume.  Both emphasize speed in space.  Both require running backs to be good receivers.  Both teams need depth.  Both teams get a lot out of their RB2.

I don't think Coleman would walk into a starting gig in those spots, but I think he'd compete for that job sooner or later.  The 49ers especially saw last year how important running back depth is, and we know Shanahan knows how to get the most out of Coleman.

Shanny was putting special teams and practice squad players into the starting rotation, I think he has a bid for coleman if mckinnon is slow on the recovery. . .:lol:

You're absolutely right.  Because, Luck's, Brady's, and Mckinnon's careers, are nearly identical.  Don't be obtuse.

I think hes saying not to write off players having season ending injuries, but otherwise im not sure.

Luck and Brady were pretty established by that point. Mckinnon is more of a mystery
