I need to make a move and one of these two has to go. Which one?
I would go Freeman. Smith is a flex guy at best, Freeman (when back) is similar; but, suddenly, Freeman could be a solid RB2
(Meaning keep Freeman and drop Smith)
Ito hasn’t done too much with his opportunity if you subtract the short tds run. You could say the same about Freeman, but at least for a chunk of the season Royce had solid metrics on yards before contact and broken tackles.
