Qadree Ollison cut loose by the Falcons

The Falcons released running back Qadree Ollison on Thursday afternoon. His roster spot will go to the newest backfield addition, Wayne Gallman.

Fantasy Impact

By cutting Ollison, the Falcons have just two true running backs on their roster: Gallman and Mike Davis. With that said, wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and fullback Keith Smith should see touches, too. Over the last two seasons, Ollison appeared in 11 games, logging 24 touches for 70 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns. He had an ADP of 298 prior to being cut loose.

Qadree Ollison totals 27 yards in preseason defeat to Browns

Falcons RB Qadree Ollison rushed for 21 yards on five carries and caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Ollison didn't necessarily produce any explosive performances throughout preseason, but he looks to be the No. 2 RB behind Mike Davis. If, however, Davis were to miss any time, fantasy managers would probably be better off avoiding the backfield due to the possibility of D'Onta Foreman getting a healthy amount of touches as well.

Qadree Ollison expected to be the 'true backup,' per reporter

AtlantaFalcons.com reporter Scott Bair opines that running back Qadree Ollison "is likely [Mike] Davis' true backup and has looked good thus far thanks to his offseason training."

Fantasy Impact

Bair notes that the Falcons may choose to keep five running backs on the roster. Davis and Ollison would headline the bunch. Fullback Keith Smith should crack the squad, as will Swiss army knife Cordarelle Patterson. Rookie Javian Hawkins is the final name on the list. Ollison, whose main competition for the backup role is Hawkins, has 24 touches and five scores through two seasons in Atlanta. He's listed as the RB92 in the latest expert consensus redraft rankings while Hawkins checks in at RB78. It will be interesting to see how much of a workload Ollison receives behind Davis, the 28-year-old journeyman who filled in admirably with the Panthers during Christian McCaffrey's absence last year.

Qadree Ollison working as Falcons No. 2 running back

Qadree Ollison is working as the Atlanta Falcons' No. 2 running back, according to Tori McElhaney.

Fantasy Impact

McElhaney wrote: Qadree Ollison never quite made it up the rotational ladder under the previous staff, and fans often questioned why that was. It seems this staff is pushing the 24-year-old and giving him a bigger chance than he’s ever had before. The Falcons released Brian Hill and Ito Smith this offseason. After Mike Davis, Ollison is the next running back up. He’s getting solid reps in practice, and he’s getting a chance. That said, if Mike Davis misses time, it appears Ollison is the "handcuff." In his first two seasons with the Falcons, the RB carried the ball 23 times for 53 yards and four touchdowns. He totaled one reception on two targets for seven yards as well.

Qadree Ollison carving out larger role as back-up running back

Qadree Ollison has been impressing the Falcons' coaching staff so far during camp. Falcons' reporter Will McFadden stated that Ollison impressed during practice more than the other back-up running backs.

Fantasy Impact

Ollison has been earning praise during training camp and has been impressive as a runner. McFadden also stated that starting running back Todd Gurley has looked great and has 'plenty of bounce in his step'. Gurley seems to have a lock on the starting running back position, but Ollison may be able to steal some touches from the other back-up running backs.
