Like all other rookies on our list, two important factors come into play when figuring the likelihood of success in a players initial season in the pros: level of talent and depth chart around them.
We know the former Indiana Hoosier is talented, and the Atlanta Falcons are not deep at the running back position. While Coleman will still share some of the backfield duties with Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith, look for the cream to rise in this situation.
Freeman and Smith may see a majority of the third down snaps due to their pass catching abilities, but Coleman will likely be the goal line bruiser.
To further help the case for Coleman, the Falcons are in a division that lacked run-stopping defenses in 2014. With a little help from his offensive line, Coleman could develop into a solid NFL fantasy football player in 2015.
