Devonta Freeman earns spot on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2017 list

For the second consecutive year, Falcons running back Devonta Freeman has earned a spot on NFL Network's Top 100 list, this time coming in at No. 41.

The Top 100 Players of 2017 is voted on by the players themselves.

Freeman rushed for 1,079 yards in 2016, marking back-to-back seasons with more than a 1,000 yards. He recorded 13 total touchdowns on the year, which was the fifth most among running backs.

The 25-yar-old played a key role in an offense that averaged 415.8 yards per game in 2016, a franchise record.

NFL Network profiled players ranked No.50-41 on Monday night, with Freeman being the first Falcon to be named to the list this year.

Freeman continues to climb the latter, earning his second Pro Bowl nod after his production in the 2016 season. Freeman was the No. 50 ranked player on the list in 2016 following his breakout year.

Atlanta's running back is the fourth running back to be named to the list with Jay Ajayi (69) LeGarrette Blount (80) and Adrian Peterson (98) also making the cut.
