Wow, amazing how every veteran who lingers out there takes less money for a better opportunity, per their agent.  That's so weird

I mean, I think he'll amount to nothing more than maybe an RB3. But it's been like 5 days of him on the team and they were heavy underdogs. He's a hold if you picked him up (for now). 

Ya fella, I remember how long it took Drake to learn Arizona's playbook... took him weeks before he was any good

 Wasn't Freeman the guy who whiffed on the SB rusher that strip sacked Ryan and led to the Pat's comeback to win the Lombardy? 

Edit, yeah it was - he didn't even try to block the guy.

 

Yup. Sure as hell whiffed on the block. 

Question though; what does that have to do with his FF potential FF in NY?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses? 
You been out ridin' fences for so long now 
Oh, you're a hard one 
But I know that you got your reasons 
These things that are pleasin' you 
Can hurt you somehow 

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy 
She'll beat you if she's able 
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet 

Now it seems to me, some fine things 
Have been laid upon your table 
But you only want the ones that you can't get 

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger 
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home 
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin' 
Your prison is walking through this world all alone 

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time? 
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine 
It's hard to tell the night time from the day 
You're losin' all your highs and lows 
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away? 

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses? 
Come down from your fences, open the gate 
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you 
You better let somebody love you
Let somebody love you
You better let somebody love you before it's too late

I was responding to a poster who praised his pass blocking abilities.  It might not impact his FF potential at all for the Giants unless his pass pro leads to more sacks, turnovers, etc. for an already poor offense that struggles with poor OL play and turnovers as it is.  I'm guessing Freeman's talent and situation makes him a RB3 level prospect for fantasy and negative game script might kill even that value some weeks, kinda like a Gotham City version of Myles Gaskin / Matt Breida in Miami.

yeah against 2 top run defenses....u will be proven wrong on this one

You mean the one that gave up 93 yards on 14 touches to Adrian Peterson?  Is that one of the two?

teams make adjustments.. especially a team with a defensive line like the bears..not surprised at all that barkley would struggle

If you’re referring to me, I hardly praised it. I said he was pretty solid. You pointing out one terrible play where he whiffed on a block doesn’t change that.

I lost Saquon. I was offered Freeman straight up for Higbee. I have Herndon as my backup TE.

 

Do I accept?

Is it PPR or half PPR or standard I couldn't do that higbee will be top 10 TE maybe top 5 this year

Freeman wasn't good with Falcons offense, what makes him any better with Daniel Jones?  O-line pretty similar.  

 

As of today, I'm ranking Mike Davis > Kelley > Freeman > McKinnon > Henderson > Gaskin.

 

u obviously didnt own freeman last yr...he was good...falcons had **** oline, they would sub out freeman at goaline for backups (they do that with gurley now), and the falcon defense was so bad they could never stick with the run...freeman wasnt bad though last year...he actually was reliable for most of the season until he got hurt and was out for a couple of weeks...he will be fine in NY

He was rb21 last year, and that’s missing three games.
