Kevin Hanson joins SI for the 2019 season. His fantasy rankings have placed him in the Top 20 in each of the past two seasons among all the industry experts tracked by FantasyPros.com, and he has been in the Top 25 in six of the past eight years.

Check out more of Kevin’s rankings: QB, WR, TE, kicker, defense and flex.

RB Start of the Week: Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta Falcons (vs. CAR)

Returning from a multi-week absence, Devonta Freeman managed only 64 scrimmage yards against a tough Saints defense in Week 13. On a positive note, however, Freeman had 21 touches, including four receptions.

Freeman now has multiple receptions in every game, three-plus in nine of his 10 games and an average of 4.2 catches per game this season. Ready for another sizable workload, Freeman should be much more productive in a fantasy-friendly matchup.

Not only have the Panthers allowed the most fantasy points to opposing running backs, they have surrendered a league-most 5.3 YPC and 22 rushing touchdowns. The duo of Derrius Guice (10/129/2) and Adrian Peterson (13/99/1) gashed their run defense for a combined 23/228/3 last week.

RB Sit of the Week: Tevin Coleman, RB, San Francisco 49ers (at NO)

Capitalizing on a favorable matchup against the Panthers, Tevin Coleman racked up 118 scrimmage yards and scored four touchdowns against them in Week 8. Since then, it’s been nothing but a struggle.

Over his past five games, Coleman has 40 rushing yards or less every week, including a season-low six rushing yards (on five carries) last week. He has averaged fewer than 2.0 yards per carry in three of his past five games. Meanwhile, Raheem Mostert rushed for 146 yards on 19 carries last week.

The Saints have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Especially if Matt Breida returns in Week 14, it would only add another obstacle to Coleman’s path to a productive outing.
