Atlanta Falcons: Five players to watch vs Colts

4) Devonta Freeman

Devonta Freeman is still very quietly putting together a tremendous year for the Atlanta Falcons and will need to bounce back on Sunday after a poor showing against the San Francisco 49ers in the Falcons’ last game. Atlanta was unable to establish a run game against the 49ers and will need to do so against the Colts to help the Falcons’ struggling passing game.

If Freeman can break through for a few big runs, Matt Ryan and the Falcons’ receiving corps will be able to flow a lot easier. When the Falcons are one-dimensional, they struggle mightily. However, when they have a balanced offensive attack, they are very hard to beat.
