The New York Giants aren't the only team that might have chosen the wrong kind of back, when they made Saquon Barkley, not Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen, the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft.

Since awarding Devonta Freeman with a whopping five-year extension last summer, Atlanta's best back has been ... Tevin Coleman, who has 12 total touchdowns over his past 21 regular-season games, missing only one since the start of last season.

Freeman has eight touchdowns over the same time frame, missing a combined six games with injury, prior to hitting season-ending I.R. this week. Are touchdowns all that matter? Of course not. Coleman is the better pass protector of the two. He is one year younger and has 460 fewer "miles" on the odometer. And he didn't raise a stink in the week leading up to the franchise's first Super Bowl — more than 12 months in advance of his contract expiring — about his contract discontent.

Now, Coleman takes over as Atlanta's full-time "feature back" with 12 games remaining in his contract season. The Falcons' offense already was firing on all cylinders without Freeman, so even if (when) Ito Smith remains involved, Coleman, 3.7 YPC and broken O-line and all, profiles as a top-12 RB the rest of the way, beginning with a matchup vs. a Giants 'D' that's surrendered six touchdowns to backs over the past four games.

Barkley? He's our RB2 overall this week, not that it'll likely change the Giants' fortunes Monday night — though another spectacular individual effort very well might distract us from the raging inferno that's the rest of the 2018 New York dumpster fire, err, Giants.
