Atlanta depth chart

Football is about to start, and Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn knows that the biggest challenge for his team this year will be filling the depth chart holes that appear from injuries and players leaving for greener pastures. The Falcons made a blockbuster move in September by trading away their starting left tackle, Jake Matthews. In exchange, they added Dontari Poe, their starting defensive tackle.


Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison (illness), who is on the team's practice squad, has missed practice all week with a non-COVID-19-related illness and isn't expected to play in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ollison was elevated to the active roster last week with Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) out against the New England Patriots, and he played a team-high 48% of the offensive snaps while carrying the ball nine times for 34 yards and catching two of three targets for zero yards in his first action of the 2021 season. If Patterson doesn't return (he's listed as questionable) this Sunday against the Jaguars, Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman would form an underwhelming RB duo for the Falcons.

Atlanta Falcons running back/wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Patterson missed last Thursday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons but looks to be closer to returning this weekend. Qadree Ollison, who surprisingly led the backfield last week, is not expected to play, so Patterson should see the majority of touches in this backfield alongside Mike Davis if he returns against Jacksonville. The 30-year-old Patterson is the team's top playmaker as long as receiver Calvin Ridley is away for personal reasons. Patterson will return to being an RB2 if he's active, but he's more useful in PPR leagues with his 39 catches for 473 yards and five touchdowns through the air in nine games.

As mentioned above, a majority of the moves occurred on defense. Shortly before the depth chart was revealed, the Falcons announced that they’ve parted ways with linebacker Jacob Tuioti-Mariner who is no longer on the depth chart. James Vaughters performed well in limited snaps, and will step into Tuioti-Mariner’s spot. Additionally, defensive tackle Anthony Rush and corner Chris Williamson have been added to the depth chart.

It’s somehow already Week 10, as the Atlanta Falcons are preparing to go on the road and face the Dallas Cowboys. The Falcons made some moves on Tuesday, shortly before they released their updated depth chart. You’ll notice a lot of the changes occurred on the defensive side of the ball.
