Falcons' Duke Riley: NFL struggles persist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley collected 60 tackles and two pass deflections during his second season with the Falcons in 2018.

Riley fell out of favor in the preseason due to missed tackles, and he only received nine defensive snaps in the opener against Philadelphia. But after Deion Jones was diagnosed with a broken foot later that week, the inconsistent RIley was entrusted with 56.8 snaps per game between Weeks 2 and 5. As the season wore on, rookie Foyesade Oluokun surpassed him on the depth chart, eventually leading to Riley's ostracization from the defense by way of just 25 combined defensive snaps over the final five games of the year. With an offseason forthcoming to sharpen his tackling technique, Riley looks to bounce back in 2019 for an Atlanta defense that's desperately searching for playmakers.

Falcons' Duke Riley: Returns to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (stinger) returned to Sunday's game against Dallas, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Riley was listed as questionable to return after suffering a mild neck injury during the first quarter of Sunday's game. He didn't miss much time before returning, likely suggesting the injury was not serious.

Falcons' Duke Riley: Return questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a stinger/neck injury, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Riley suffered his injury early in Sunday's game. Look for Kemal Ishmael or Foyesade Oluokun to see some extra snaps for as long as Riley is sidelined.

Falcons' Duke Riley: Drastic cut in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley collected four tackles and a pass deflection during Sunday's 34-29 victory over Tampa Bay.

It may not seem like a substantial feat, but Atlanta held an opponent to fewer than 30 points for the first time in the past four games, bringing an end to a disheartening three-game skid. This came with the team's 2017 third-round pick, Riley having his defensive snap count sliced from an average of 56.8 plays per game between Week 2 and Week 5, to 28 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. The decision to peel back Riley's playing time is likely tied to a turbulent performance against Pittsburgh the game prior in which he missed six of a possible 12 tackles. The team prefers rookie Foyesade Oluokun moving forward, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Falcons' Duke Riley: Steps up in Jones' absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley finished tied with De'Vondre Campbell for a team-high nine tackles as the Falcons defeated the Panthers 31-24 on Sunday.

After a shaky rookie season in 2017 and an up-and-down 2018 preseason, Riley emerged with his best outing as a pro Sunday against Carolina, picking up a career-high nine combined tackles (he never exceeded six tackles in first 13 games of career). Sunday's home game against the Saints presents a daunting task for Riley and the front seven, going up against one of the league's premier offenses without Pro Bowl middle linebacker Deion Jones in the lineup. Alvin Kamara is a nightmare matchup coming out of the backfield against this dinged-up linebacking corps, with 15 receptions for 165 yards and a touchdown through two games. Atlanta struggled mightily at containing Christian McCaffrey in the passing game Sunday, as the second-year back tore up the Falcons for 14 catches and 100-plus yards in Week 2.
