Even Falcons are defeated in Thursday's night against Saints, Devonta Freeman continue with collecting yards. Last night he had 13 carries for 100 yards and a touchdown, adding eight catches for 56 yards and another touchdown, in 31-21 loss to the Saints.
Currently, Falcons running back is second ranked in NFL by rushing yards as he’s racked up 405 this season already.
This is his second season in NFL, but already has impressed many, and they said that he’s been the ground threat that the Falcons have lacked for many years to complement Matt Ryan, and even compare him with Steven Jackson.
He’s already joined the likes of Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson with his impressive start to the season.
Devonta Freeman is the youngest player with 8 rushing touchdowns in the first 5 games of a season since Eric Dickerson in 1983.

The question is when he will be slowing down, but Falcons did great job with him in offensive line.
