  • Qadree Ollison: Likely out with illness

    Ollison missed practice this week with a non-COVID-19 illness and isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against Jacksonville, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) out for last Thursday's 25-0 loss to New England, the Falcons brought Ollison up from their practice squad and gave him nine carries and three targets (producing 36 scoreless yards) on 48 percent snap share. Ollison reverted back to the practice squad after the game, and it isn't clear whether he'd have had a Week 12 role if not for the illness. Patterson is listed as questionable for the game in Jacksonville, leaving Mike Davis, Wayne Gallman and Caleb Huntley (practice squad) as Atlanta's healthy running backs.

  • Qadree Ollison: Should see more carries

    Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said Wednesday that Ollison has "earned the right for more carries," Josh Kendall of The Athletic reports.

    With Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) out for last week's loss to the Patriots, Ollison was called up from the practice squad and ended up leading the team in carries (nine for 34 yards) while playing 48 percent of the Falcons' offensive snaps. Mike Davis saw just as much playing time but took only three carries, and he's now down to 3.2 yards per tote on the season, potentially opening the door for Patterson to have a new backfield partner. That said, it'll likely be tough to get a read on Ollison's role ahead of Sunday's game in Jacksonville, and he might not even have one if Patterson returns to the lineup. Following the Week 11 game, Ollison reverted to the Falcons' practice squad, so Atlanta would have to either sign him to the 53-man roster or elevate him again by Saturday to make him eligible to play Sunday.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Surprise rushing leader Thursday

    Ollison carried nine times for 34 yards and gained zero yards on two receptions Thursday in the Falcons' 25-0 loss to the Patriots. He reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Friday.

    Elevated from the practice squad for the second time this season, Ollison ended up taking on a larger role than expected out of an Atlanta backfield that was without top option Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle). Though Mike Davis (three carries for one yard, three catches for 20 yards) picked up the start, Ollison handily outproduced him on the ground and saw the same amount of snaps (26). Atlanta could bring Ollison back from the practice squad if Patterson isn't ready to play in the team's upcoming game next weekend in Jacksonville, but the former won't make for a compelling fantasy option even if he replicates his Week 11 workload. Ollison doesn't present much of a threat as a pass catcher and is averaging just 2.7 yards on 32 career carries.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Elevated as COVID-19 replacement

    Ollison was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement for Josh Andrews on Thursday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Whether Ollison suits up for Thursday's game against the Patriots will likely depend on the status of Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle), who is viewed as a game-time decision. Even if Patterson sits, Ollison's role would likely be limited with Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman both ahead of him on the running back depth chart.

  • Qadree Ollison: Reverts to practice squad

    Ollison reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday.

    Ollison joined Atlanta early in September and was elevated to the Falcons' active roster for the first time this season in Week 9. The 2019 fifth-found pick will likely go back to his reserve role on Atlanta's practice squad, barring any injuries.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Bumped up from practice squad

    Ollison was elevated to the Falcons' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ollison signed with the practice squad Sept. 7, but he had not been called up to the active roster this season before Saturday. The 2019 fifth-round selection of the Falcons has appeared in 11 games between 2019 and 2020, getting 23 carries for 53 yards and four touchdowns.

  • Qadree Ollison: Replaced by Gallman

    The Falcons have waived Ollison.

    With Ollison on the way out, Wayne Gallman was signed by the Falcons to provide added depth behind starter Mike Davis. Ollison will now look to resurface on a roster in short order, either as a depth option or practice squad member.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Falls back in pecking order

    Ollison was the third back to enter the Falcons' final preseason game Sunday, rushing five times for 21 yards in a 19-10 loss to Cleveland.

    Ollison ran with the first unit last week against the Dolphins, hinting that he was the first backup in Atlanta, but it was Caleb Huntley who relieved Mike Davis against the Browns. Head coach Arthur Smith didn't offer any insight on the depth battle after the game, so we'll have to assume both backs still are in the mix. Davis is the main fantasy target in Atlanta, but whoever ends up second on the depth chart could carve out some value if a timeshare develops heading into a Week 1 matchup against the Eagles.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: First back on field

    Ollison carried the ball seven times for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

    Ollison didn't participate in the team's first exhibition, so this served as his 2021 debut. He was the first back on the field and was heavily involved on the first three offensive possessions. Mike Davis was among the Falcons who didn't take the field, but it appears that Ollison remains in position to serve as Davis' primary backup.
