2020 Fantasy Outlook
Oluokun will be thrust into a full-time starting role following De'Vondre Campbell's departure to Arizona this March, but coach Dan Quinn continues to exude confidence in his young linebacker despite him being just two years removed from Ivy League play. The former Yale standout made a substantial impact on special teams during 2019, but Oluokun was far from being a down-in, down-out kind of defensive contributor, only twice playing 50-plus percent of the defensive snaps in a game all season. His role in 2020 is expected to more closely resemble the one he inhabited two years ago, when he was forced to start seven times as a result of a Deion Jones foot injury and finished second on the team with 91 tackles. Jones is back healthy and will continue in his "Mike" position as he did last year, but if this Falcons defense is to take a jump this season, Oluokun will be one of the unknown commodities to come to the forefront and perform.

Out against Bears

September 27, 2020
Oluokun (hamstring) has been listed among Atlanta's inactive players for Sunday's showdown with the Bears.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old linebacker made an incredible impact in the early going against Dallas last week, forcing three fumbles on 18 defensive snaps. Oluokun was forced to exit the game due to cramping, but limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday provided optimism that he may be able to play against Chicago. With this update on his status, the Falcons are left thin at linebacker, and will now have to rely on fourth-round rookie Mykal Walker in a more integral role.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The former Ivy League standout couldn't have asked for a more prosperous rookie campaign, transforming from a late-round pick with a chance of being left off the 53-man roster to starting weakside linebacker. When Deion Jones went down with an foot injury early last year, it was initially Duke Riley - a 2017 third-round selection from LSU - who filled the void. Oluokun proved to be a more reliable tackler than Riley, however, and soon supplanted him in the starting lineup. Despite being granted just seven starts over the course of 2018, Oluokun finished second on the team with 91 tackles and finds himself slotted in beside Jones and De'Vondre Campbell as a starting linebacker.
