Duke Riley slips downward in playing time in Week Six win

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Duke Riley recorded four combined tackles in the win over Tampa Bay Week Six, but he did it with approximately half the amount of time with the starting unit in this contest.

Fantasy Impact:

The significant drop in time on the field this contest should be concerning for his IDP owners. The apparent benefactor of this drop of playing time for Riley was rookie linebacker Foyesade Oluokun. With Riley recently being stripped of the on the field play calling and now this drop from an 80% average to 43% in Week Six could mean he is no longer going to be counted as a centerpiece of the defense going forward.
