Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Second-leading tackler in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected seven tackles during Sunday's 34-32 win against the Buccaneers.

The 2018 sixth-round pick from Yale vastly exceeded expectations in his rookie campaign, starting in six of Atlanta's final eight games and finishing just three tackles behind De'Vondre Campbell for most on the team this season. With Duke Riley's persistent struggles throughout his first two years in the NFL, there is no more qualified candidate on the roster than Oluokun to start alongside Deion Jones and De'Vondre Campbell at linebacker in 2019.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Second-leading tackler in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun registered nine combined tackles during Sunday's 26-16 loss to the Ravens.

Oluokun has demonstrated an insatiable nose for the football of late, collecting 29 combined tackles over Atlanta's past three outings, and most recently snuffing out four plays for a gain of three or fewer yards during Sunday's loss to Baltimore. The sixth-round rookie has become a fixture in Atlanta's front seven as the season continues to wear on, fielding 77.4 percent of the defensive snaps over the Falcons' past four games, compared to a 50.8 percent snap share between Week 9 and Week 12. Upcoming Sunday afternoon he'll be tasked with containing Packers running back Aaron Jones, who has averaged an absurd 5.7 yards per carry on 112 attempts this season.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Drawing praise from head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn tabbed Oluokun as a "sure tackler" before Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Oluokun has been a pleasant surprise in an otherwise turbulent 2018 for the Falcons defense. A sixth-round pick in April's draft, the Yale product has logged three consecutive starts (one all year prior), and is on pace for over 90 tackles despite fielding just 49.7 percent of the defensive snaps this season. On Sunday, he and the Atlanta front seven will try to prevent a red hot Gus Edwards from exceeding 100 rushing yards for the third straight game.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Leads defense in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun had 10 tackles (five solo) in Thursday's loss to the Saints.

Oluokun continues to find himself around the ball as he has been the Falcons' first or second-leading tackler for five of the last six games. The 23-year-old has started the last three games and although Deion Jones could make his season debut next week, he continues to nurse the foot injury that's sidelined him all season.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Team's leading tackler in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun racked up 10 combined tackles during Sunday's 22-19 loss to Dallas.

Oluokun has had a sharp nose for the football of late, finishing as the Falcons' first or second-leading tackler in four of his past five games. With Deion Jones (foot) still sidelined despite his recent return from injured reserve, the rookie was provided with a lion's share of work, but Atlanta's struggles in containing opposing running backs persisted as Ezekiel Elliott accounted for more than 200 offensive yards with a rushing score. Even if Jones returns in Week 12 against New Orleans, Oluokun will be a heavily-used rotational player at the very least.
