WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The Jets re-signed Tevin Coleman.

Running back is very deep during free agency, so Coleman probably did well to land back with the Jets in an offense he's comfortable in. The dynamic veteran running back should be a solid complement in the backfield, which is currently expected to be lead by second-year player Michael Carter.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman has cleared concussion protocol.

It's good to hear that Coleman will be back for the Jets, but the running back room will be more crowded with rookie Michael Carter (ankle, injured reserve) also returning for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (concussion) ruled out for Week 14.

Coleman has been effective as the starter over the past two weeks, but he'll unfortunate be out this week, so Ty Johnson and Austin Walter will handle most of the work at running back. We would recommend avoiding the backfield in a difficult matchup versus New Orleans.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is in the concussion protocol.

Coleman must have had concussion-like symptoms following last Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and hopefully he's feeling better soon. Coleman needs to fully clear the NFL's concussion protocol to be able to play in Week 14.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is officially active for Week 10.

Coleman was able to get back up to a full practice on Friday, and he’s ready to go for today against the Bills. The veteran running back returns after missing the past three games.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 9.

Coleman is out on the short week, missing his third consecutive game. The Jets will again rely on Michael Carter and Ty Johnson in the backfield tomorrow night against the Colts.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is out for Week 8.

Coleman will miss his second game in a row, so the Jets will again lean on Michael Carter and Ty Johnson at running back. The Jets will enter the weekend undermanned on offense, and neither runner is a highly recommended play versus an underrated Cincinnati defense.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (hamstring) inactive for Week 7.

Coleman popped up late on the injury report, so it's no surprise that he's not playing today. Look for rookie Michael Carter to handle most of the work versus New England with Ty Johnson mixing in.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (illness) ruled out for Week 3.

Coleman won’t play this week with a non-COVID illness, so Michael Carter and Ty Johnson should see increased reps with La’Mical Perine also mixing in. This still remains a backfield to avoid outside of deeper leagues.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The Jets are signing Tevin Coleman.

Coleman couldn’t get healthy last season, but he should be 100% now and could be a steal for the Jets this late in free agency. Coleman has familiarity with the Jets new coaching staff, including head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, both of whom were with the Niners along with Coleman. The dynamic running back can provide a major jolt off the bench if that's his role, and his versatility as a receiver can also be utilized. Depending on how the Jets backfield depth chart shakes out throughout the rest of the offseason, the veteran might have a shot to beat out second-year back La'Mical Perine for the starting role.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is officially off the Week 13 injury report.

Coleman will play against the Bills on Monday night after missing the past three games with his re-aggravated knee issue. Coleman will be a boost for the Niners in real life, but he’s not a highly recommended fantasy option in his first game back.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) is questionable for Week 12.

[UPDATE/CORRECTION: Coleman has been ruled out for Week 12.] Coleman has a shot to play as the Niners come off the bye, but it might be difficult to trust the dynamic runner in a tough matchup with the Rams. We'd like to see Coleman on the field first before recommending him as a fantasy option, as he had to leave early in his return to the field a few weeks ago when re-aggravating his knee.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) will not play in Week 10.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says he hopes that Coleman will be able to return after the Week 11 bye week, but he'll miss his second consecutive game after re-aggravating his knee injury a couple of weeks ago. The upside is there, but Coleman is not a must-hold if you don't have any IR spots and need roster space.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) is out for Week 9.

Coleman rushed three times for 20 yards before exiting in his return over the weekend, which is doubly unfortunate because the Packers would have been a dream matchup on Thursday night. Hopefully the veteran runner can have the mini bye week to get healthy and return in Week 10. Look for rookie JaMycal Hasty to lead the backfield against Green Bay.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) is officially questionable to return for the 49ers.

The Niners hadn't send anything after Coleman left early in the first half, but we've finally gotten word at halftime. This was the fear after Coleman jogged to the sideline with a slight limp after a nice run, and it's difficult to see him returning to today's game after just coming back from the knee injury this week. Before leaving, Coleman had three carries for 20 yards and looked very explosive.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The 49ers officially activated Tevin Coleman (knee) from injured reserve.

Coleman reportedly received a good amount of work in practice this week, so this was expected. However, it is very difficult to gauge which direction the San Francisco backfield will go tomorrow versus Seattle, with JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon both also in the mix. Ultimately, Coleman has great upside in Week 8 but also a zero-point floor if he’s not used much.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The 49ers opened the 21-day practice window for Tevin Coleman (knee).

Coleman is expected to have a shot to return to the lineup this Sunday against the Seahawks, but he should be set to return in Week 9 (next Thursday night) at the latest. The Niners will not share Coleman's official practice status until he's officially activated to the 53-man roster, which does not need to happen until the weekend. But we expect the dynamic runner will be back for San Francisco this week.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The 49ers have placed Tevin Coleman (knee) on IR.

Coleman is dealing with a multi-week injury, so this isn’t a surprise. Fantasy owners should try to stash the veteran on IR themselves if possible. In the mean time, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson will lead the backfield until Raheem Mostert (knee) returns.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) is expected to miss around four weeks.

Coleman will be placed on injured reserve, which will keep him out for a minimum of three weeks, soon. The dynamic running back could provide a jolt when he returns, but he's not a must-hold on fantasy rosters.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (knee) is expected to miss multiple weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The hits keep coming with the injuries around the league—and the Niners may have been hit the hardest yesterday. After the Week 2 win over the Jets, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Coleman was dealing with a knee issue, but this multi-game absence is worse than expected. San Francisco will be without both Coleman and Raheem Mostert this Sunday against the Giants, so Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson are expected to lead the backfield. Despite his upside when he gets back on the field, Coleman is not a must-hold in redraft leagues.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is officially active for Week 1.

There was some concern with the air quality level in San Francisco for Coleman, who has the sickle cell trait, but the explosive running back will suit up for the 49ers. Consider Coleman more of a weak FLEX option to open the year, as his playing time could still be limited because of the air quality.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (shoulder) will play in Super Bowl LIV.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says Coleman is "good to go" for Sunday against the Chiefs, which is awesome to hear after his status looked uncertain following a bad-looking dislocated shoulder suffered during the NFC Championship. Coleman is a dynamic and versatile weapon with Super Bowl experience during his time with the Falcons, so he'll be a big boost as the Niners look to win a title.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (shoulder) went through walkthrough today.

Coleman received positive results from his MRI and appears to be trending in the right direction following his dislocated shoulder suffered last Sunday, and we would be surprised if he isn't able to play in Super Bowl LIV, as the electric running back will certainly be doing everything he can to get out there as he looks to get his first ring. We'll track Coleman's practice status next week.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman has a dislocated shoulder.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says the team is still awaiting the MRI results on Coleman's shoulder but that the dynamic running back should have a chance to play in the Super Bowl. Coleman is certainly going to try very hard to play on February 2, but his status will be closely monitored over the next couple of weeks.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman leaves NFC title game with apparent wrist injury.

The 49ers are officially calling it an elbow injury for Coleman, but he's holding his wrist and is obviously in very serious pain. Coleman is not one to be dramatic about an injury, so this looks like something serious that will keep him out for the rest of the evening. He's currently being carted to the locker room. Before leaving, Coleman had six carries for 22 yards. San Francisco is extremely deep at running back, but it would be a huge loss if Coleman is unable to play in a potential Super Bowl appearance.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman sees just three touches in Week 14 win.

Coleman drew the start again for San Francisco, but in a game where nearly 100 points were scored, it was a major disappointment for him to record just six yards to start the fantasy playoffs. Both Raheem Mostert (12 touches for 109 yards and two touchdowns) and Matt Breida (seven touches for 58 yards) ending up playing ahead of Coleman, who is now nothing more than a touchdown-dependent FLEX option. For what it's worth, next week will be a game against his former Falcons teammates.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles just five carries in Week 13 loss.

They went for six yards, and he also caught a nine-yard pass. Coleman drew the start, but Raheem Mostert ended up leading the backfield with 21 touches for 154 yards and a touchdown, surely leading to frustration for fantasy owners. The San Francisco backfield is expected to get Matt Breida (ankle) back next week against the Saints, so all three backs will be risky FLEX options to start the fantasy playoffs.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores four touchdowns in 49ers' win.

Coleman carried 11 times for 105 yards and three touchdowns along with two receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown in a 51-13 Week 8 rout of the Panthers. San Francisco's offensive line, despite injuries, continues to play exceptionally well, and all Coleman needs is a crease with his elite speed and acceleration. On his 48-yard touchdown run, the former Falcon simply zoomed up the middle and past the defense untouched. It would have been an even bigger game if it was not such a lopsided contest, as Coleman did most of his damage in the first half. It's pretty funny that people (typically know-it-alls on Twitter that probably do not even actually watch games) have insisted in the past that Coleman is not a good player, but he's one of the best running backs in football and will continue to be an RB1/RB2 option in fantasy lineups.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman nears 100 yards in Week 5.

In Coleman's return to the field after missing the last two games following his high-ankle sprain suffered in Week 1, Coleman carried 16 times for 97 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' rout of the Browns. Matt Breida started the game and broke an 83-yard touchdown on the first offensive play for San Francisco, but it was an event backfield split with Breida carrying 11 times for 114 yards and a touchdown along with three receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown. Coleman appears to be the 1A in the backfield, and the Niners are doing an excellent job of opening running lanes this season. Both guys have great weekly upside because of their dynamic ability, but Coleman is likely the safer option and is arguably a must-start as the lead runner in one of the league's best rushing attacks.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (ankle) is officially active tonight.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he was optimistic that Coleman would be able to play, and the dynamic running back is ready to go against the Browns. Jeff Wilson Jr., who had become the team's primary back deep in the red zone in the last couple of games, is inactive. Coleman is immediately a strong FLEX option for Week 5 if you were waiting to use him, and he has the talent and upside to work himself into an RB1/RB2 depending on the number of touches he gets in a crowded backfield.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (ankle) is officially questionable for Week 5.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan says the team is optimistic he can play, but Coleman’s status cannot be taken for granted having only gotten limited practices in this week. If he suits up, Coleman will be a high-upside, volatile FLEX option as he splits time with at least Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (ankle) is "good to go" for Monday night's game against the Browns.

Coleman is practicing today, and he should immediately slide back in as San Francisco's lead back, including the most likely candidate for goal-line touches. Fantasy owners are fortunate that the bye came early for the Niners, as Coleman ended up missing just two games with a high-ankle sprain. If he's somehow available in your league, the 26-year-old needs to be picked up immediately as a high-upside RB2 option.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Kyle Shanahan says Tevin Coleman (ankle) has a "good chance" to return in Week 5.

The Niners are headed into their Week 4 bye, and fortunately it looks like that could lead to Coleman only missing two games with his ankle sprain. The dynamic running back figures to return into a prominent role in the San Francisco backfield, including potentially as the primary red zone and goal line back like Jeff Wilson Jr. (three touchdowns) has been the past couple of weeks during Coleman's absence. If Coleman is somehow available in your league, he should clearly be the top waiver wire pickup despite him being on a bye for Week 5.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

Coleman left Sunday's game after eight touches, and he will almost certainly be out until October. Fortunately, the 49ers have a Week 4 bye, so Coleman will ideally miss just two games before returning in Week 5, but an absence until mid-to-late October is also a possibility. In the interim, Matt Breida will start and is a locked-in RB2 option, while Raheem Mostert is worth considering as a big-play dart throw in deeper leagues.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (ankle) is out for the rest of today's game.

It's unclear when Coleman was injured, but he's been announced as out at the start of the second half. Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert will now carry the load for the Niners with Coleman out. Hopefully this ankle injury isn't too serious and doesn't keep Coleman out for longer than the rest of today. Before leaving, Coleman operated as San Francisco's starter and lead back, carrying six times for 23 yards along with two receptions for 33 yards.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Niners run game coordinator Mike McDaniel says signing Tevin Coleman was like "Christmas in March."

McDaniel was with Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan and Coleman in Atlanta for two seasons, so the coaching staff knew what they were getting in the explosive running back—and they were extremely thrilled when they signed him. McDaniel said signing Coleman "was the equivalent of a March Christmas because we hold him in such high regard"; and passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur (who was also in Atlanta with Shanahan, Coleman, and McDaniel) added, "he can run and he’s explosive, no doubt. The thing that really sticks out with Tevin is how fearless and physical this guy is. He is a man out there. When you tell him to put his foot in the ground and go north and south, he’s going to do it times 10... When we need him to get us a yard, he’s going to get us a yard every single time." These comments make it sound as if Coleman is clearly the best bet to be San Francisco's lead running back this season, including at the goal line, which could give him the most consistent fantasy value and the highest upside. However, Shanahan plans to use all his running backs, and things are likely to change on a week-to-week basis. It'll be interesting to see how reps are split this preseason, but Coleman will almost certainly be the first Niners running back off the board in fantasy drafts late this summer.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk hints the team will have an unpredictable backfield.

Of San Francisco's backfield, Juszczyk says, "you're going to see a different guy shine each week," which sounds good for the team in real life but bad for fantasy owners looking to predict what's going to happen from week to week this season. The Niners undoubtedly have the most crowded and deepest backfield in the league with Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, Jeffery Wilson, and Raheem Mostert all in the mix, and it's possible Coleman, McKinnon, and Breida (the three most likely fantasy options) in particular are all boom-bust starters that might be difficult to trust on a weekly basis in 2019. Considering his success in Kyle Shanahan's offense when they were both with the Falcons, Coleman is probably the favorite to start and deliver the most consistent numbers after he surprisingly signed with the Niners during free agency.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Kyle Shanahan says running back roles are "up to the players."

On "The Adam Schefter Podcast", Shanahan said that everyone keeps asking him about the running back roles like he's "in charge of that or something," adding: "It's up to the players. They will define their roles. That's kind of what's unique about this." The Niners head coach went on to say how every guy "can do a bunch of different things," but that the one thing they all have in common is they have sub-4.40 speed. He also said that how last season, given all the injuries to the position, they might need all of them this year. It's safe to assume the running-back competition in San Francisco is going to be wide-open this summer, with Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, and Matt Breida leading the group as things stand. The unique situation is completely up in the air, and it's possible there isn't much clarity before Week 1, but hopefully the preseason sheds some light on potential playing time in the regular season.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The Niners are signing Tevin Coleman to a two-year, $10 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This is a stunner for a few reasons. One, this length and salary doesn't really seem to match Coleman's age (26 this April) or skillset (elite acceleration, great top-end speed, and excellent receiver). Two, San Francisco already has Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida in the backfield mix. And three, it's shocking that teams like the Raiders and Eagles didn't come with better offers than this reported two-year, $10 million deal. However, it is worth noting that McKinnon's contract signed last offseason doesn't have any guaranteed money left, so perhaps they'll part ways with him. Also, Coleman has a history with Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was previously his offensive coordinator in Atlanta. This is an interesting situation, but we really like Coleman's ability; depending on what happens with the depth chart, he could be anything from a RB1/RB2 option to a volatile FLEX in 2019.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores against the Buccaneers.

Coleman carried eight times for 45 yards and a touchdown along with one reception for nine yards, with the score coming on a 23-yard run where he showed his exceptional acceleration and one-cut ability before brushing off a couple of tackles on his way to the end zone. Brian Hill (eight carries) and Jeremy Langford (nine carries) also received some work, as the Falcons probably didn't want to give Coleman too much work as he entered the game with a groin issue and is set to become a free agent this offseason. Coleman had 167 carries for 800 yards and four touchdowns along with 32 receptions for 276 yards and five touchdowns this season. The explosive fourth-year running back did a great job of filling in as the starter with Devonta Freeman missing most of the year, and his performance should make the Falcons interested in bringing him back, which they've said they want to do. However, other teams should certainly be interested in signing Coleman as a starter this offseason, so we'll see what happens. Coleman would have RB1 upside if he becomes a starter somewhere.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (groin) will play in Week 17.

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said early in the week that the dynamic runner should be good to go, so can be started in fantasy lineups as a high-upside RB2 for the season finale against the Buccaneers. Set to hit unrestricted free agency, Coleman might be playing his last game with the team, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him brought back because of how good he's been over the past four years.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (groin) did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, so this missed practice isn't a huge deal yet. The Falcons believe Coleman has a chance to play in the season finale this week against the Bucs, so we'll track his status the next couple of days. At least a limited practice tomorrow would be a good sign for Coleman's Week 17 status.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (groin) has a good chance to play in Week 17.

This, according to Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Coleman left the end of yesterday’s game with a groin strain, and it’s good to hear it’s not serious. We’ll track his practice status leading up to this Sunday’s season finale against the Bucs. It’d be great to see Coleman out there in what could be his final game as a Falcon if he leaves in free agency this offseason.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (groin) did not return to today's game.

The Falcons were comfortably in the lead against the Panthers, so this wasn't a surprise. Coleman's Week 16 ends with ten carries for 51 yards. We'll see if Coleman is ready to face the Bucs in Week 17, but keep in mind that he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so both sides might prefer a cautious approach.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (groin) is questionable to return against the Panthers.

The Falcons are up two touchdowns with under ten minutes remaining, so we don't expect they'll rush him back too quickly. We'll update you as more information becomes available, though. Brian Hill will handle most of the backfield work with Coleman out.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman goes off for career-high 145 rushing yards in Week 15 win.

Coleman rushed 11 times for 145 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown. He also had another long touchdown called back by a penalty, and the explosive back didn't catch his only target. Coleman continued to split time with Ito Smith, but his big-play ability was on full display on limited touches, and he will remain a high-upside RB2 option for the fantasy championship. Atlanta takes on the Panthers next week in Carolina.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets 11 touches against the Packers.

Coleman carried ten times for 45 yards and caught one pass (on one target) for -4 yards in the Week 14 loss. Meanwhile, Ito Smith received 14 touches in the game, and there's a chance the backfield is more of a true 50/50 split in the final three games in an effort to preserve Coleman heading into the offseason while getting the rookie Smith more work heading into his second year in the league. Coleman faces the Cardinals, who have given up 16 rushing scores to running backs this season, in the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets seven touches in Week 13.

Coleman carried six times for eight yards and caught one pass for three yards against the Ravens. Like mostly everyone on Atlanta's offense, Baltimore shut him down. The dynamic running back will look to do damage with more room to run next week against the Packers. This just wasn't a good showing for the Falcons offensively.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores in Falcons' loss.

Coleman carried eight times for six yards and caught three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Thanksgiving loss to the Saints. As the numbers indicate, there wasn't any room for Coleman to run, but we still think the explosive running back should be getting more touches to have more opportunities to make the gamebreaking plays he's capable of making. The score came on an angle route by the goal line at the end of the game and helped save an otherwise disappointing night. Coleman has another tough matchup next week against Baltimore, but he offers upside as an RB2 option.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets 11 touches in Week 11.

Coleman carried eight times for 58 yards and added three receptions for 27 yards against the Cowboys. Despite gashing Dallas for multiple big gains on his touches with his great speed and acceleration, the Falcons opted not to give Coleman the ball more, which was odd considering it might have slowed the pass rush and help make play-action passes more effective. Hopefully the Falcons decide to give Coleman the ball more considering how well he's playing, but he's probably more of a strong RB2 option with an uncertain workload in a tough matchup.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman contained as Atlanta drops to 4-5.

Coleman rushed 11 times for 44 yards, also adding three receptions (on five targets) for 19 yards. The Falcons probably abandoned the running game a little too early as they threw it 52 times against the Browns, who had been exploited by running backs over the past two weeks, but at least Coleman maintained a clear lead in the backfield over Ito Smith (eight touches for 26 yards). The explosive runner should bounce back next week against the Cowboys, but he will probably fall on the RB2 side of the RB1/RB2 borderline against a tough front.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman totals over 150 yards and two touchdowns against the Redskins.

Washington is one of the league's toughest run defenses, but Coleman and Atlanta's running game did damage throughout the afternoon. Coleman had 13 carries for 88 yards and five receptions for 68 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 9 victory. Coleman showed his top-notch acceleration and exceptional athletic ability, routinely gashing the Redskins for chunk yardage. This performance should probably silence all the doubters that ignorantly question Coleman's ability as a running back. Through eight games, Coleman is on pace for 190 carries, 796 rushing yards, four rushing touchdowns, 40 receptions, 410 receiving yards, and eight receiving touchdowns.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles 13 touches in win over the Giants.

Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a score, also adding two receptions for 32 yards. It was a pretty even split in the backfield with Ito Smith handling nine touches, but Coleman made the bigger impact with a 30-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter on a pitch that he easily outran the safety on, and he had a 30-yard reception earlier in the game. The Indiana product also seemed to tweak his ankle on Atlanta's final possession, but he returned. Coleman will have a week to rest up before taking on the Redskins following the bye, and he should remain at least a high-upside RB2 that will hopefully start consistently breaking big plays.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores in Falcons' win.

Coleman carried ten times for 35 yards and added one reception for six yards and a touchdown against the Buccaneers. The score was on a pass in the flat, which Coleman took with his great acceleration to the front pylon. Rookie Ito Smith (11 carries, 22 yards, touchdown) remains heavily involved in a tandem with Coleman while Freeman is out, but Coleman is the more explosive player and a stronger fantasy option. Coleman's upside might be relatively capped with Smith taking work (or if Devonta Freeman returns next week), but he'll be at least a FLEX option for Week 7 against the Giants.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets nine touches against the Steelers.

Coleman gained just 15 yards on seven carries and 15 yards on two receptions, as the Steelers surprisingly did an excellent job of pressuring and limiting Atlanta's high-powered offense. Next week, Coleman faces a Tampa Bay team he had 97 yards and two touchdowns against last November—but Devonta Freeman missed that game.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets 17 touches against the Bengals.

Coleman carried 14 times for 51 yards and caught three passes (on three targets) for 26 yards in the Week 4 loss. Ito Smith continued to work behind Coleman and scored on a red-zone carry, which put a dent in Coleman's fantasy day. Through four games (three without Devonta Freeman), Coleman is on a 16-game pace of 216 carries, 840 rushing yards, four rushing touchdowns, 40 receptions, 336 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns. Coleman will be an RB1 option against the Steelers if Freeman misses another week, but he'll still be a solid option if Freeman is back in the lineup.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles 17 touches in 43-37 loss to the Saints.

Coleman rushed 15 times for 33 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards, including a five-yard touchdown. The Saints made it tough for Atlanta to get going on the ground, as Coleman was basically bottled up besides a 15-yard run on the edge, but he was able to show great balance on his score. With Devonta Freeman (knee) still up in the air and sounding unlikely to return in Week 4, Coleman should again be treated as a high-upside RB1, particularly in a better matchup against a Bengals team that just allowed Christian McCaffrey to rushed for 184 yards. Through three games, Coleman has been extremely consistent with point totals of nine, 11, and ten in standard leagues; he should break some big plays soon.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles 20 touches in Week 2 start.

Coleman rushed 16 times for 107 yards and caught four passes for 18 yards in the 31-24 victory over Carolina. It was the first time since Thomas Rawls in 2016 that a running back has rushed for at least 100 yards against the Panthers, which shows the talent that Coleman has as he starts in the place of Devonta Freeman (knee). The 25-year-old showed his all-world combination of speed and acceleration in the Week 2 win, and he is arguably a top-five play against the Saints next Sunday with Freeman still recovering. It's definitely possible that Coleman retains at least a 50/50 split in the backfield all year.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores in Falcons' Week 1 loss.

Coleman out-touched teammate Devonta Freeman against the Eagles, getting ten touches compared to Freeman's nine—and Freeman was unable to play at the end of the game because of a knee injury. Coleman had nine carries for 19 rushing yards and a touchdown along with one reception for 26 receiving yards. The touchdown was a carry in the red zone that Coleman cut up the field with great acceleration from nine yards out. Looking ahead to next week against the Panthers, Coleman will be at least a solid FLEX option, but he'll be a potential RB1 if Freeman misses time.

Tevin Coleman is expected to be more involved on offense in 2018.

Coleman says the Falcons are "just going to use me more...lining up out wide and stuff. It's going to be pretty fun." Meanwhile, head coach Dan Quinn says the team wants to "make sure we are really featuring [Coleman] and [Devonta Freeman] in as many ways as we can." Last season, the first under offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, Coleman had 156 carries (a career-high) for 628 rushing yards along with 27 receptions for 299 receiving yards. Entering his fourth NFL season and in a contract year, Coleman is a good bet to exceed all those marks this year. He's an ideal dynasty-league target as a potential full-time starter in 2019, but focusing on 2018, Coleman is one of this year's best mid-round fantasy selections.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The Falcons say they are not trading running back Tevin Coleman.

Because Coleman is entering the final year of his contract and the team made Devonta Freeman the highest-paid running back in the league with an extension last year, many have speculated that he could be on the move. However, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff made it clear Coleman will not be moved, telling 92.9 The Game radio in Atlanta: "We are not considering trading Tevin Coleman, period." Dimitroff said how important Coleman is to their organization and that their focus is on winning in 2018. Coleman is one of the most dynamic and underrated players in the league, so it's not surprising they want to hold on to him, and Dimitroff said they could do an extension for him despite having Freeman locked up long-term. In fantasy drafts this summer, Coleman will be one of the best mid-round picks despite not being the starter in Atlanta.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman plays well in Falcons' playoff loss.

Coleman worked in tandem with Devonta Freeman in Atlanta's backfield, but he far outproduced his teammate on the ground versus the Eagles, carrying ten times for 79 yards while adding one reception (on one target) for 14 yards. Next season, Coleman will be entering the final year of his contract, but Devonta Freeman won't be going anywhere, which limits his overall season upside a bit. However, Coleman is still an electric player that has a ton of weekly upside, and he will be one of the better mid-round targets in 2018 fantasy drafts.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handset 17 touches in Wild Card weekend win.

Coleman rushed 14 times for 40 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards in a 26-13 victory over the Rams. Atlanta's explosive backup saw just one fewer touch than Devonta Freeman, and they should do their best to give the two a fair share of the workload next week in Philadelphia. Coleman was essential last postseason in the team's playoff run, and they will likely need him against the Eagles.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles 13 touches in Week 17 win.

Coleman rushed 11 times for 23 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards. The dynamic third-year back was even on the ground with Devonta Freeman in terms of carries and yards, but Freeman did more damage as a receiver. Coleman finishes the regular season with 156 rushing attempts for 628 yards (4.0 yards per carry) and five touchdowns, also adding 27 receptions for 299 yards and three more scores. Atlanta needs to get him the ball in space more if they want to make a postseason run like they did last January, and that will start on Saturday night against the Rams.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores in loss to the Saints.

Coleman rushed six times for 12 yards, adding four receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown. The third-year back shows impressive burst every time he gets the ball, but Devonta Freeman—who lost a fumble at the goal line— continues to operate as the clear lead back in Atlanta. Perhaps Coleman will get some more touches in the regular-season finale with the Falcons looking to earn a playoff spot. Consider him a high-upside RB2.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is out of concussion protocol.

This is great to hear for both Coleman personally and for the Falcons. The electric running back will return to the lineup this weekend against the Saints after missing one game with his concussion. Devonta Freeman might get a couple more touches taken away, but he subbed out of the game a good amount without Coleman in the lineup in Week 15 anyway. Coleman will be a high-upside RB2 option versus New Orleans on Christmas Eve.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (concussion) will be limited in practice today.

Coleman is making some progress through concussion protocol, which is a good sign. Right now, he should be on track to play this week in a huge matchup against the Saints, but we'll monitor his status throughout the week and keep you updated.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman remains in concussion protocol.

This is a bit of a concern, considering the concussion was suffered two Thursdays ago, but it's still only Tuesday. Coleman has until Sunday to get cleared of his concussion and be out there for a huge NFC South matchup against the Saints. His status is one of the biggest to monitor throughout this week, for both real life and fantasy implications. Hopefully Coleman is feeling better soon, which is the most important thing.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15.

The Falcons play on Monday night against Tampa Bay, and Coleman hasn't made enough progress through concussion protocol and the Falcons have went ahead and ruled him out. Coleman suffered the concussion in Week 14's Thursday night win over the Saints, so this isn't a great sign. But hopefully Coleman is feeling OK and is able to get back out there for Week 16. Teammate Devonta Freeman should be a lock for around 20+ touches this week versus the Buccaneers, and he's an excellent RB1 for the matchup.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is still in concussion protocol.

The Falcons don't play until Monday night, but he's missed the last two days of practice while dealing with his concussion from last Thursday's game against the Saints. If Coleman isn't cleared on Saturday, the Falcons will probably just rule him out ahead of the Week 15 matchup with Tampa Bay.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman remains in concussion protocol.

Coleman suffered his concussion in last Thursday's win against the Saints, so it's not a great sign that he's still in protocol after a week. He still has a few days to get cleared ahead of Monday's game against the Buccaneers, and hopefully he's feeling OK.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman is officially in concussion protocol.

Coleman took a hit to the head from a couple Saints defensive tackles late in last night's win, and he'll now have to get cleared ahead of Atlanta's Week 15 game against Tampa Bay. Teammate Devonta Freeman missed two games because of his concussion, but it Freeman's second concussion of the year. We're pulling for Coleman to feel better soon and hopefully be out there with his team in a couple Sundays.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman leaves game to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Coleman just took a big hit from two Saints defensive tackles who stuffed him right when he got a handoff late in the fourth quarter. He was down for a few seconds before getting up and going to the sideline with trainers. It now looks like he'll enter concussion protocol, and with about five minutes to go in the game his night is probably over. Coleman had nine carries for 32 yards before leaving, and he was just wide open for a would-be touchdown on a wheel route, but Matt Ryan was pressured and didn't see him. Hopefully Coleman is feeling OK after the hit he took.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman handles 11 touches in Week 13 loss.

Coleman rushed eight times for 22 yards and caught three passes for 27 yards. Devonta Freeman led the backfield with 81 yards on 13 touches, so it looks like any hope of Coleman taking over lead-back status after his impressive stint as the starter is gone. That said, he remains a high-upside RB2 for the fantasy playoffs, including on Thursday night against the Saints in a huge matchup.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman displays elite skillset in Week 12 start.

Coleman rushed 19 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns. The first score came on a three-yard dive in the third quarter, and the second score was a 14-yard sprint to seal the game in the fourth. He surprisingly didn't catch a pass, but Coleman showed again that he has the ability to be a top-end starter in the NFL if given the opportunity. Devonta Freeman could return from his concussion next week against Minnesota, but Coleman will remain a high-upside RB2 anyway. If he gets another start, the third-year back remains an explosive RB1.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets 21 touches versus the Seahawks.

With Devonta Freeman (concussion) out, Coleman took over as a workhorse in Atlanta's backfield in the Monday night victory. Coleman carried 20 times for 43 yards and a touchdown while also adding a 15-yard reception. Seattle did an excellent job of limiting the running game of the Falcons all night, but Coleman still showed his nice vision and had some good runs. The touchdown came by the goal line, and he nearly had another one but his elbow was down while the ball just short of the goal line. There's a chance Freeman isn't ready in Week 12 against Tampa Bay, in which case Coleman would be a great RB1 option. Coleman should still be in most lineups even if Freeman is active, though.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman ties career-high in carries as Falcons beat the Cowboys 27-7.

Coleman operated as the lead back with Devonta Freeman leaving with with a concussion on the first series of the game, and he rushed 20 times for 83 yards and a score. He also added a five-yard reception. The 1B in the backfield since Freeman's breakout in 2015, Coleman didn't break any 20-yard runs, but he displayed good vision and elite acceleration that makes him one of the most underrated players in the NFL. Even with a matchup in Seattle next Monday night, Coleman is a surefire RB1 option if Freeman is out.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores agustin the Panthers.

Coleman didn't appear to be getting much work in the game, and he carried five times for five yards. But late in the game, the Falcons finally got him more involved, as they threw a quick screen when he was split out, and the dynamic back took it for a 19-yard touchdown. Atlanta probably needs to get Coleman much more involved as a receiver, as he can take short routes the distance as well as run deep routes against linebackers that can't keep up with his speed. Coleman is on pace for 126 carries, 632 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, 32 receptions, 396 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns. The third-year back is averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 12.4 yards per reception—he simply needs to get more touches.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman leads backfield in touches, yards in Week 8 win.

Coleman rushed 14 times for 82 yards—with a long run of 52 yards—and caught a 22-yard pass in a 25-20 victory over the Jets. Perhaps the heavy rain had something to do with it, but it was surprising to see Coleman out-touch Devonta Freeman 15 to 13, though Freeman gained just 61 yards on his 13 touches. This could end up being a one-week thing, but Steve Sarkisian might also want to give Coleman more touches with the offense struggling recently. For now, Coleman should still be considered a high-upside RB2 with Freeman as a solid RB1.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman sees just six touches in SNF loss.

Coleman rushed six times for 16 yards, and was held without a catch in the passing game. The Super Bowl LI rematch did not live up to expectations at all, as Atlanta's struggling offense couldn't even make it a game. Coleman should get more touches next week against the Jets, but he needs to be downgraded to low-end RB2/FLEX status until the Falcons improve.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores first touchdown of the year.

Coleman carried nine times for 32 yards and a touchdown versus the Dolphins, while adding a four-yard reception on his only target in the passing game. The Dolphins did a very good job of limiting the rush offense of Atlanta for the most part, but Coleman was able to break a 20-yard run in the game. The touchdown was on a tough six-yard run where Coleman just got into the end zone. The third-year back continues to be a high-floor fantasy option and will be a good option in fantasy lineups in a likely high-scoring matchup with New England next week.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman looks like Atlanta's best player in Week 4 loss.

Coleman led the team in rushing and receiving, carrying it nine times for 79 yards and catching four passes for 65 yards. The explosive back continues to gain chunk yardage, and the Falcons would be wise to find ways to get him on the field more over their bye week. Averaging 6.3 yards per carry on the season, Coleman is on pace for 732 rushing yards, plus 52 catches for 612 yards through the air. He only has one touchdown in four games, but the scoring should pick up starting in Week 6 against Miami. He's an every-week, high-upside RB2/FLEX.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman sees just nine touches but turns them into 89 yards in Falcons' win.

Coleman rushed six times for 46 yards and caught three passes for 43 yards, as backfield mate Devonta Freeman handled 24 touches, which he turned into 138 yards. Fantasy owners can keep Coleman in their lineups every week as a high-upside RB2/FLEX, and it would be surprising if he didn't handle more touches soon, as he's averaging a whopping 6.62 yards per touch so far this season.  Hopefully he gets at least 12 touches next Sunday against the Bills.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman shows off his speed in Week 2 win.

Coleman rushed six times for 42 yards, including a 35-yard sprint on the right side. He also caught two passes for three yards and a touchdown. It would have been nice to see him handle more touches (Devonta Freeman had 21), but Coleman's talent made up for it. He will be a high-upside RB2 for next week's matchup with the Lions, which is another potentially high-scoring game.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets 12 touches in Week 1.

The explosive third-year back had eight carries for only 16 yards against a tough Bears front seven, but he did add four receptions for 42 yards in the game. Atlanta said they wanted to get Coleman more involved as a receiver after his 13.6 yards per reception for a running back in 2016 was the most in a season by a running back in the last 15 years, and he'll remain involved moving forward. He gets the Packers next Sunday night.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets four touches in Atlanta's third preseason game.

With Devonta Freeman (concussion) out, Coleman started the game and had three carries for 19 yards, while adding a 14-yard reception. He's going to be a big part of the Falcons offense this season along with Freeman. Coleman and the Falcons face Chicago in Week 1 of the season, and the third-year back should be a FLEX option (which is what he's currently being drafted as).

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman gets two carries in Week 2 of the preseason.

Both of Coleman's carries went for -1 yard. Devonta Freeman (concussion) already wasn't playing in the game, so the Falcons promptly got their other dynamic running back out of the game after a few snaps as they look to keep him healthy for the regular season.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman barely plays in preseason opener for the Falcons.

Coleman had a carry on a short-yardage situation, but that was it. Coleman and the Atlanta starters that played were only in the game for a short time. They'll probably get some more time next Sunday against the Steelers.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman could be used more as a receiver this season.

New Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian told Kelsey Conway of AtlantaFalcons.com that he "challenged" Coleman to add that part to his game. Coleman averaged 13.6 yards per reception last season, the most of any running back in the last 15 years, and whenever he did line up out wide of in the slot he was effective. The game against the Broncos is a great example of Coleman's ability, as he ran a go route when split out wide for a big gain, he also ran a seam route from the slot for a long touchdown. Head coach Dan Quinn also recently talked about Coleman's ability to create mismatches against safeties and linebackers because of his speed. The Falcons know they have a great straight-ahead burner at running back in Coleman, and it sounds Sarkisian wants to use him as a split-out receiver more this season. Atlanta's offense should be scary good again in 2017.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

The Falcons think Tevin Coleman will have a breakout season.

Head coach Dan Quinn talked about the third-year back's great ability as a receiver and as someone that can create mismatches against linebackers and safeties because of his speed. Quinn said they feel players can usually make a jump in their second year in the league, but added, "we also feel like guys from Year 2 to Year 3 make a significant jump and I do feel like Tevin is going to be one of those players that is going to make that jump." Coleman was already 20th in fantasy points for running backs last season on only 149 touches—a testament to his big-play ability. He averaged 13.6 yards per reception last season, which is the most in the last 15 years by a running back, so Coleman obviously has some special skills. If Quinn feels Coleman is ready to make a significant jump this season, it could mean he gets more than his 149 touches last season. In an elite offense, Coleman is an enticing option in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts, even with the presence of Devonta Freeman.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman put on 10-15 pounds compared to last season, according to Pete Prisco.

Coleman is 6'1" and listed at 210 pounds, so 220-225 pounds is about where Coleman is at. A lot of running backs struggle when putting on extra weight, but considering he's a 24-year-old, hopefully it's just him still putting on muscle. Coleman is one of the fastest and most explosive backs in the NFL (his 13.6 yards per reception last season were the most by a running back in the last 15 seasons), so if he can keep that ability with the added weight, he'll be a load to handle for opposing defenses. The third-year back, despite having Devonta Freeman in the backfield with him, should be at least a solid RB2/FLEX to open the season.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Dan Quinn says Tevin Coleman doesn't need surgery on his ankle.

Center Alex Mack (fibula) doesn't need surgery either. It's obviously a good sign that Coleman's injury isn't very serious. He should be 100% for OTAs.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman catches touchdown in Super Bowl LI loss.

Coleman had seven carries for 29 yards and a six-yard touchdown reception. He left late in the game with what appeared to be a leg injury, but it didn't seem overly serious. Coleman is definitely worth a selection among the top 20 running backs in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores on the ground against Packers in NFC title game.

Coleman had 11 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown, with three receptions for 35 yards. The TD came on a toss play that probably could have went for 100 yards. The explosive Coleman should be good for 12+ touches in the Super Bowl.

Tevin Coleman gets 14 touches in Falcons' Divisional Round win.

Coleman had 11 carries for 57 yards and three receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown against Seattle. He showed his trademark acceleration and formed a great combo with Devonta Freeman. They'll both look to keep it going next Sunday in the NFC Championship.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores 11th touchdown of the season in Falcons win.

Coleman had eight carries for 44 yards and three catches for 15 yards and a receiving touchdown versus New Orleans. He finishes his good sophomore regular season with 118 carries for 520 yards and eight touchdowns, with 31 receptions for 421 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games. His 13.6 yards per reception is an insane number for a running back, and he has proven to be a great weapon out of the Falcons' backfield with Devonta Freeman.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores 55-yard touchdown in Falcons victory.

Coleman had nine carries for 90 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers. He added three catches for 45 yards. Coleman has extremely elite acceleration and it shows on the field. He's a high upside RB2 in the season finale against the Saints.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman rushed 14 times for 58 yards against the Falcons.

He also had two catches for eight yards. The Falcons seemed intent on feeding Devonta Freeman this game after he was phased out in Week 14. Coleman could have done more damage if the Falcons needed him to against the Niners. Coleman will be a RB2 next week against the Panthers.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores twice against the Rams.

Coleman had eight carries for 36 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for 19 yards and a touchdown. On his rushing touchdown, Coleman looked like he was shot out of a cannon. His acceleration is something else. Coleman will be a great RB2 next week against the 49ers.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 49 yards in Sunday's loss.

He was targeted twice but did not have a catch. Coleman was more efficient with his carries than Devonta Freeman, but Freeman scored twice and caught four passes. If he sees the same workload in the fantasy playoffs, Coleman can be in lineups as a high-upside RB2; he just needs a few touches to make a huge impact.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Tevin Coleman scores in his return from a hamstring injury.

In his first game since Week 7, the second-year back scored on a two-yard run in the 3rd quarter. He ended up with nine yards on eight carries, adding four yards on two catches. Coleman should be better in his second game back from his injury next week versus the Chiefs, and will be a high-upside RB2 for that matchup.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Coleman (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 12.

He will play for the first time since Week 7 this Sunday against the Cardinals. If he was somehow dropped in your league, Coleman should be picked up immediately; on a points-per-game basis, the second-year back is the eighth best fantasy running back this season. Though he's more of a FLEX in his first game back and in a tough matchup, Coleman will be a high-upside RB2 down the stretch, and would be a top-five option if Devonta Freeman went down.

Tevin Coleman | Jets RB

Coleman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

This means Devonta Freeman should see a big workload against the Eagles, and is a no-doubt RB1. The news might be good for fantasy owners, as we've seen players (Doug Martin, LeSean McCoy) try to return too early from hamstring injuries and re-aggravate it. Coleman is sure to be back following the Falcons' Week 11 bye. He'll be a high-upside RB2 down the stretch.
