Qadree Ollison, RB (ATL)

Surprise rushing leader Thursday

Ollison carried nine times for 34 yards and gained zero yards on two receptions Thursday in the Falcons' 25-0 loss to the Patriots. He reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Friday.

Elevated from the practice squad for the second time this season, Ollison ended up taking on a larger role than expected out of an Atlanta backfield that was without top option Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle). Though Mike Davis (three carries for one yard, three catches for 20 yards) picked up the start, Ollison handily outproduced him on the ground and saw the same amount of snaps (26). Atlanta could bring Ollison back from the practice squad if Patterson isn't ready to play in the team's upcoming game next weekend in Jacksonville, but the former won't make for a compelling fantasy option even if he replicates his Week 11 workload. Ollison doesn't present much of a threat as a pass catcher and is averaging just 2.7 yards on 32 career carries.
