Freeman rated 70th best player in NFL

He dropped 20 spots in the rankings of Top 100 in the league 

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who battled through two concussions and a knee injury, was revealed at the 70th rated player in the league on NFL Network’s The Top 100 Players of 2018 show on Monday.

It was Freeman’s third appearance on the list. He was 41st last season and 50th in 2016. 

The show counts down the top players in the NFL as voted on by current NFL players.

Freeman likely dropped 20 spots in the rankings because he missed three games and failed to reach 1,000 yards rushing after two consecutive seasons of more than the mark.
