- •Devonta Freeman, RB, ATLThe Falcons coaching staff is intent on making Tevin Coleman a big part of the offense, and as a result, Freeman's potential loss of touches makes him a falling player. Over the course of the season, Coleman has had fewer than 10 touches in just one game, and despite a poor performance in his return to the lineup in Week 12, he saw double-digit touches, and that usage will keep Freeman's upside limited.
- •Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARIFitzgerald had an amazing start to the 2015 season and saw his production plummet as the season went on, and it's looking as if 2016 is headed in the same direction. This is especially true in terms of touchdowns, as he scored three times in the first four games of the year, but he's failed to reach the end zone in any of his last six games.
- •Allen Robinson, WR, JACHow many times can one player be written up in a ‘barometer article' over the course of a season? If there was a record, Robinson would be nearing it, as he now appears in the ‘falling' category after a recent positive write-up after he had three consecutive solid games. After he averaged double-digit targets from Weeks 2 through 10, he's been targeted just 11 times over his last two games, including a season-low four times in Week 12.
- •Thomas Rawls, RB, SEAAlthough having opportunity is an awesome thing, if a player fails to produce with it, fantasy owners are faced with some tough lineup decisions. Rawls has had 45 carries this year, but he's averaging 2.66 yards, and he's failed to find the end zone. It's entirely possible that he's falling into the category of players who had a partial season of massive success, but were unable to replicate it.
