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.

Numbers diminish in 2019

Oluokun accumulated 56 tackles, two tackles for loss and one forced fumble across 16 appearances for the Falcons this season.
ANALYSIS
The second-year linebacker out of Yale was afforded far less playing time in 2019 compared to 2018, as he never exceeded 55 percent of the defensive snaps in any game and only started three times after last year collecting seven starts as Deion Jones missed 10 weeks with a broken foot. Oluokun saw his tackles count decrease by 35 between 2018 and 2019, and he failed to produce a single QB hit after collecting two as a rookie. Though his defensive contributions waned somewhat, Oluokun played a key late-game role for the Falcons during Week 13, scooping up one onside kick and assisting in another onside recovery to keep Atlanta alive in an eventual 26-18 defeat to New Orleans.
