Make sure your game's framerate is within the monitor's Freesync range. Try limiting the framerate to about 4 frames below your monitor's refresh rate and enabling VSync. That should eliminate all tearing and still give you low input delay. Check out Battle(non)sense on Youtube for more details, he has some great videos on the subject, such as Get The Most Out Of Your G-Sync Compatible Monitor (should apply to Freesync as well).
