The Cleveland Browns are coming off a 1-15 season, but a flurry of offseason trades, free-agency moves and draft picks has flipped the depth chart heading into the 2017 season.
Cleveland will build around No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett on defense, and the offense added a new quarterback in DeShone Kizer to the mix. Second-year coach Hue Jackson, general manager Sashi Brown and chief strategy office Paul DePodesta have a vision, and it will be interesting to see how that looks this season.
Jackson will call the plays this season, and new quarterbacks coach David Lee spent the last two seasons in Buffalo. They’ll be looking at the same riddle that has produced 26 quarterbacks since 1999.
Despite splitting time with Tevin Coleman in the backfield last season, Freeman amassed 1,541 yards from scrimmage (1,079 rushing) with 13 total Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada touchdowns. With both running backs returning next season, Freeman doesn’t foresee much change in their offense.
“I think it’s going to be pretty much the same thing,” Freeman said of the offense under Sarkisian. “A few tweaks here and there, but the majority of the same play calls, the same offense.”
So what does that mean for Freeman’s fantasy value next season?
Only good things, as Freeman had double-digit rushing attempts in all but one game (Rams) last season, had multiple receptions in all but one game (Raiders) and had four multiple touchdown games.
As long as Freeman possesses elite speed and quickness he is a top-level fantasy option.
