Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Registers seven stops in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected seven tackles (four solo) and one QB hit during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

Oluokun was a late addition to the NFC's Pro Bowl ballot, and one has to wonder why the 25-year-old wasn't included sooner. Though Oluokun ultimately was not given the nod for the annual distinction, he did break out with a career season consisting of a team-high 117 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a pair of interceptions. The Falcons may have found a defensive cornerstone in the Yale standout, who blossomed into an all-around contributor during his first full season as a starter. The 2018 sixth-round pick enters his final year under contract as the Falcons prepare to usher in a new general manager.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Set to play in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (ankle) will be available for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Will McFadden of AtlantaFalcons.com reports.

Oluokun remained a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he's slated to play in the Falcons' finale while attempting to extend his streak of six or more tackles to five games.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokon (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Oluokon has been arguably Atlanta's best player on defense over the last four weeks, collecting 36 tackles and an interception. He'll hope to shed this ankle injury in time to suit up for Sunday's season finale against Tampa Bay in hopes of ending his breakout third NFL season on a high note.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Continues breakout campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected 10 tackles and a sack during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Chargers.

The Yale product has generated seven QB hits and three sacks in his past five games after failing to reach the quarterback a single time over the first eight weeks of 2020. His tackle totals remain impressive game-to-game, as Oluokun has posted double-digit tackles in consecutive contests, notching four such performances on the entire year. The 25-year-old's 97 tackles and four forced fumbles represent team highs as the Falcons prepare for a Week 15 matchup against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (neck) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Oluokun practiced fully Friday following a pair of limited sessions, clearing him to play in Week 14. He'll look to build on last week's standout performance against the Saints, when the outside linebacker played every snap on defense and led the Falcons with 13 tackles.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Managing practice reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (neck) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Oluokun is coming off one of his best games of the season, seeing 100 percent of the defensive snaps, and racking up 13 tackles (eight solo). It's too early to panic over his chances to play in Week 14 against the Chargers, but expect his practice availability the rest of the week to paint a better picture. If Oluokun is forced to miss game action, Edmond Robinson would likely step into a major role at outside linebacker.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Posts impressive tackle total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun registered 13 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 21-16 loss to New Orleans.

Though he was unable to register a sack for the third time in four games, the Yale product continues to excel in his first full season as a starter. After collecting 10 combined tackles over his preceding two games entering Sunday, Oluokun was capable of posting his third double-digit tackle showing of the 2020 campaign. His four forced fumbles remain second best in the NFL heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Impressive 2020 campaign continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun logged four tackles, one sack and a forced fumble during Sunday's 43-6 win against Las Vegas.

The third-year linebacker from Yale continues his 2020 Pro Bowl bid, as he currently finds himself tied with Aaron Donald, Myles Garrett and Marlon Humphrey at an NFL-high four forced fumbles. With two sacks and five QB hits over his past three appearances, Oluokun is beginning to make his presence more noticeable in the pass-rush department as well. He was unable to notch a single QB hit or sack in seven appearances between Weeks 1 and 8. Oluokun's 74 combined tackles constitute a team high heading into the Falcons' Week 13 matchup against New Orleans.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Begins week limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Oluokun dealt with a knee injury earlier this season but avoided missing time. His ability to practice Wednesday, albeit in a limited fashion, is encouraging, although it's worth keeping an eye on his status. The third-year linebacker is a vital member of an otherwise putrid defense, as he's piled up 69 tackles, a sack, three pass breakups and three forced fumbles through nine games.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Recovers fumble in Week 11 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected five tackles and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Saints.

After initially being snubbed from the NFC's Pro Bowl ballot, Oluokun proved again in New Orleans why he should have had his name in consideration from the start. With another pivotal play, Oluokun has now recorded four combined forced fumbles and fumble recoveries on the 2020 campaign, adding one sack, an interception and three pass deflections. Having just surpassed his previous career high with his eighth start of the season, Oluokun is enjoying a breakout year playing in a more full-time capacity for the Falcons.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Notches sack, huge tackle total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun tallied 10 total tackles, one pass deflection and a sack during Sunday's 34-27 win against the Broncos.

Deion Jones (six tackles) was the only Falcon with more than half of Oluokun's tackle total, though the Yale product also made his presence felt while rushing the passer. Oluokun logged three additional QB hits on top of his second-quarter sack Sunday, after he had failed to notch a single mark in either category through his first seven appearances of 2020. The 25-year-old is liable to continue posting occasional sack numbers, as his 31 blitzes so far this season are more than he had over his first 32 appearances combined between 2018 and 2019 (25).

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Gets two fourth-down stops in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected five total tackles, including a half tackle for loss during Thursday's 25-17 win against the Panthers.

Oluokun was able to chase Teddy Bridgewater to the edge and usher him out of bounds to force a turnover on downs at the 4:01 mark of the second quarter. On Carolina's opening offensive drive of the second half, Oluokun also teamed with Grady Jarrett to bring down Mike Davis for a one-yard loss on another fourth-down try. Oluokun, a Yale product, has been one of the breakouts of Atlanta's defense this year, ascending into a starting role with the offseason departure of De'Vondre Campbell to Arizona. So far Oluokun is the team's leading tackler (54) through eight weeks of play.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Stacks up nine stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun posted nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Lions.

It was another fantastic effort by the third-year linebacker out of Yale, as he finished second only to Keanu Neal in tackles and now has 49 stops this season. Oluokun's playing every defensive snap, too, so he should easily surpass the 100-tackle threshold as long as he stays healthy.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Picks off Kirk Cousins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun collected six tackles, one tackle for loss and one interception during Sunday's 40-23 win against Minnesota.

Oluokun corralled the third of Kirk Cousins' three first-half interceptions, returning the ball 14 yards into Vikings territory to help set up a successful Younghoe Koo field-goal attempt nine plays later. The Yale product has been a difference-maker in his five appearances for Atlanta this season, as he is now tied with Deion Jones for a team-high 40 tackles. He also has four forced takeaways on the year, as the Falcons prepare to face a Lions offense Week 7 that committed one turnover during its 34-16 trouncing of Jacksonville on Sunday.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Oluokun has regularly had his practice reps capped while dealing with injuries this season, and a knee issue kept him to three limited sessions this week. Nonetheless, Oluokun looks set to draw his usual start at linebacker in Minnesota.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Limited during Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Oluokun has been a regular on the Falcons' injury report this season, as he's dealt with hamstring and oblique injuries. This appears to be a new issue, but it's good news that he's still on the field ahead of Sunday's matchup versus the Vikings. It'd be a major hit if he was forced to miss any time, as the third-year linebacker has piled up 34 tackles and three forced fumbles over four games.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Tackling machine in Week 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun racked up 14 tackles, including one tackle for loss during Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Panthers.

The third-year linebacker battled through an oblique injury during the practice week to pick up his fourth game appearance of 2020, subsequently obliterating his previous single-game high of 10 tackles during the divisional defeat. Oluokun has transformed into a full-time starter via a combination of his development and the offseason departure of De'Vondre Campbell to Arizona. So far this year, the Yale product has recorded at least six tackles in every game that he's been active.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Back to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (oblique) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

This is good news for the Yale product, as he was back in full practice status after he was limited in Wednesday's session. Now that Oluokun appears fully healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role as one of the team's outside linebackers.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Picks up oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokon (oblique) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Oluokon joins Atlanta's extensive injury report after racking up eight tackles in Monday's loss to Green Bay. He was questionable heading into that game due to a hamstring injury, and while the linebacker is generally banged up, he's likely just getting a respite Wednesday after Monday's busy outing.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Eight tackles Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun recorded eight tackles (five solo) across 61 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Packers.

Oluokun was questionable heading into the contest as he was dealing with a hamstring injury, but he didn't appear to be slowed down during the game. He tied for the team-lead in tackles and played in 97 percent of the defensive snaps.
