5. Tevin Coleman
With the lack of defense played on Monday night, the Falcons were due for some big offensive performances. There were a lot of choices to choose from on Atlanta’s offense, but we’ll start with Tevin Coleman. He continued his stellar 2016 with three touchdowns and 89 yards of total offense. It is becoming clear that Coleman and Devonta Freeman (more on him later), are developing into a top running back duo.
Against the Saints, Coleman was again featured a lot in passes out of the backfield. He was tied for second on the team with 3 catches and 47 yards. The ability to move him around the offense and feature his speed is essential to the Falcons success. If he can maintain this play, the Falcons will be on their way to being a top tier offense this year.
