Without a doubt, Devonta Freeman is the no.1 player to watch against the New Orleans Saints. Freeman is on a tear like non other and will be needed more times than not against New Orleans.
With Jones not at full strength and Hankerson feeling the injury bug as well, Freeman will be relied on to spark the Falcons’ offense at the Superdome. Freeman’s best games a rookie came against the Saints, so you know he will be ready to go.
The Falcons, Saints match-up is always must-watch regardless of record. The Falcons are 5-0 and are on the top of the world while the Saints are 1-4. The Saints are barely treading water as this point. This is the perfect time for the Falcons to step on their necks and continue to soar.
RISE UP ATLANTA, RISE UP!
