For those still fighting for their fantasy championship lives, you may have a huge home run hitter on your hands.


Although Tevin Coleman came up short last week due to an injury he suffered mid-game that sidelined him the rest of the contest, that doesn't mean he'll repeat with a similar performance. Head coach Dan Quinn had a positive update about his running back.


The Falcons' head coach said "there's a good chance" Coleman suits up on Sunday against the Buccaneers. 

Against a defense like Tampa's, you have to hope Coleman can suit up for your fantasy football team.


The last time the Falcons played the Buccaneers, Coleman and Ito Smith combined for 21 carries for 57 yards and a score on the ground. It's not the top performance but Coleman did add a second touchdown through the air. You can't expect Tampa to have a similar performance as they're 25th in the league in rushing yards allowed and tied for 29th with 18 touchdowns allowed on the ground.

If Coleman doesn't suit up, it will be Brian Hill who will carry the load like he did last week for 115 yards on eight carries. 


Coleman is still considered day to day, but if he can suit up, expect him to thrive against a bad defense on the final week of the season.
