The Atlanta Falcons will be without RB Devonta Freeman in Week 12 as he recovers from a concussion suffered in last week's loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The Falcons will turn to rookie Tevin Coleman, who has seen limited action this season due to injuries and the rise of Freeman. Coleman gained just 48 yards on 17 carries against a Colts defense filling in for Freeman, but it was Patrick DiMarco who caught two Matt Ryan TDs out of the backfield. Coleman has just one reception on the season.
Eddie Lacy just ran for 100 yards on the Vikings defense, but was the first to do so since Week 4. The Vikings run defense is very good and has allowed just four TDs to RBs, both rushing and receiving. However, with all that is going on in the NFL these days, Coleman is a must start because he is healthy.
