Devonta Freeman has started just two games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2015, but has six rushing touchdowns in those starts, good enough for number one in the league. Freeman’s seven total touchdowns leads all NFL running backs and became the first back to rush for three scores in back-to-back games since LaDainian Tomlinson did so in 2006.

Freeman leads the team with 252 rushing yards and has caught 17 passes for 196 yards as well. His 17 receptions is tied for second most on the team with wide receiver Leonard Hankerson. Freeman leads all running backs in fantasy football points as well. He is off to a tremendous start in 2015.
