RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ovie Mughelli.
Mughelli will handle the load at fullback in 2011. He only tallied 152 total yards and one touchdown in 2010, so although he's a big part of the Falcons offense, he won't put up much offensive production.
Mughelli will start at fullback but has no fantasy value in this offense.
Ovie has long been identified as a strong lead blocker, and Michael Turner's production from last year does nothing to challenge that conception.
Mughelli has never had much of an impact on the ground in his career, but the Falcons are going to run the ball a lot this season. He was used marginally out of the backfield as a target on screen plays in 2007 with six catches for 36 yards, but not enough to really earn concrete fantasy consideration.
Mughelli will serve as the team's starting fullback this season after coming over from the Ravens this offseason. He replaces the popular Justin Griffith, but the Falcons won't lose much in the trade-off. Mughelli is a decent receiver out of the backfield and he has the size to open big holes for Atlanta's speedy halfbacks. Mughelli should expect more company in the trenches than he would have had though, as Michael Vick's absence allows opposing linebackers and safeties to pay less attention to the quarterback position. He won't touch the ball much, but most fullbacks don't.
Mughelli enters the season as the second string fullback.
Drafted in the 4th round of the 2003 draft primarily for his blocking, we can not forsee Mughelli being a fantasy impact this season.
