Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks, you know that Devonta Freeman has quickly proven to be one of the best running backs in the NFL. For Freeman, he not only has been the leader of the Atlanta Falcons’ offense through seven games, but he’s joined some pretty elite company as well.

As Zach Klein of WSB-TV Atlanta reports, Freeman is the fourth player who is 23 or younger to top 600 yards and nine touchdowns through seven games. The other three players? Take a look.

You can’t find your name mixed in with players much better than that, but it’s well-deserved for Freeman after his incredible start.
