The Falcons surprisingly left LB Foye Oluokun off the final injury report for Monday night's game against the Packers. Oluokun managed only limited practices all week coming off a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 loss at Dallas and kept him out for Week 3. It looks like Atlanta expects Oluokun to return to the starting lineup -- in place of Mykal Walker -- at Green Bay. We've added him to the Week 4 LB rankings.
Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He missed practice all week, though, and looks like a poor IDP option. DE Takk McKinley (groin) and LB Foye Oluokun are inactive.
Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) and DE Takk McKinley (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. McKinley missed practice all week and looks like a bad bet to play. Fowler missed the first 2 days before returning for a limited Friday. Neither should be in your IDP lineups, if you can help it. Elsewhere on the Atlanta defense, S Ricardo Allen (elbow) is out and LB Foye Oluokun (hamstring) is questionable. Oluokun missed Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. There's upside to him in deeper IDP leagues, but obvious re-injury risk with the hamstring.
The Falcons on Monday activated MLB Deion Jones from IR. He had been out since suffering a foot injury in Week 1 that required surgery. HC Dan Quinn told the Atlanta Journal Constitution he doesn't yet know if Jones will be ready to play Dallas this Sunday. “We’ll have the same format that we had last week,” Quinn said. “We’ll take it step by step and see where he’s at. It’s too early to make a prediction of where he could be. He’s eligible to be back this week, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready. We will put him out there when he’s 100 percent.” Until then, Foye Oluokun is the main guy in the middle. IDP owners should go ahead and add Jones now where available, though. He'll undoubtedly take the MLB job back over when he's ready and is a top-5 fantasy LB when healthy.
