  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Team-high 60 rushing yards in loss

    Patterson rushed 11 times for 60 yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Steelers. Patterson saw one more rushing attempt and produced eight more yards than Tyler Allgeier, as the two running backs continue to split the majority of the backfield work. The veteran running back was held in check in the first half, rushing three times for zero yards, but he got back on track in the third quarter. His final tally would've looked a lot better if his 10-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter wasn't called back due to a Parker Hesse hold. Patterson also wasn't targeted in the passing game for the first time since Week 4, which could be a concerning development. Regardless, Patterson's consistent usage likely lands him as a viable flex option when the Falcons return to action following their Week 14 bye.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: RBs to Sit

    Patterson has run well when given the ball, but he's not being used as the featured back in Atlanta. And in a tough matchup with the Steelers, that makes Patterson someone to sit in the majority of leagues. Patterson has averaged 5.0 yards per carry in his past two games against the Bears and Commanders, but he only has 21 carries over that span. He hasn't scored a touchdown in three games in a row, and he only has seven catches for 37 yards in his past four outings. The Steelers have only allowed two rushing touchdowns to running backs in their past five games, and Patterson likely won't help your Fantasy roster if he doesn't score this week.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Possible Bust (Lineup Decisions)

    I don't love how Patterson isn't the Falcons' workhorse -- sharing with at least two other backs (and a running quarterback!) from week to week definitely has its drawbacks. But Atlanta remains committed to the run and the Steelers defense is in a tough spot playing on the road twice in the span of seven days. It's not a bad matchup. Patterson is bust-ish but has enough work near the goal line to have an edge in Fantasy lineups over Latavius Murray, D'Andre Swift and A.J. Dillon, but not quite over Isiah Pacheco or Brian Robinson.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Racks up 71 total yards

    Patterson rushed the ball 11 times for 52 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to the Commanders. He added three receptions on five targets for 19 yards. Patterson continued to see his workload monitored carefully, as he's now seen between 10 and 13 carries in three of his four games since returning from a knee injury. He also managed gains of 21, 15 and 13 yards to top 50 rushing yards for the second consecutive game. Patterson's involvement as a pass catcher was also encouraging, as his five targets matched his highest mark of the season.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: RBs to Sit

    Patterson was awesome in Week 11 against Chicago if you get points for kickoff returns. He had a 103-yard kickoff return against the Bears, but his production as a running back was minimal with 10 carries for 52 yards, along with two catches for 7 yards on two targets and a lost fumble. He's now combined for just seven PPR points in his past two games against Chicago and Carolina, and he will likely struggle again in Week 12 at Washington if he fails to score an offensive touchdown. The Commanders defense has been dominant against running backs in the past two games, holding Miles Sanders (54 total yards) and Dameon Pierce (17 total yards) to a combined eight PPR points. Washington should be able to contain Patterson this week as well.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Scores on kick return

    Patterson rushed 10 times for 52 yards and caught both of his targets for seven yards during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Bears. He also returned a kickoff for a 103-yard touchdown and lost a fumble. Patterson garnered two more rushing attempts than Tyler Allgeier, but the latter was slightly more efficient than the former. The veteran Patterson lost a fumble in the second quarter, setting up a Bears touchdown, but he quickly made up for the blunder by taking a kickoff for a 103-yard score the next time he touched the ball. The Falcons' running game appears to be a committee moving forward, but given Atlanta's run-first mindset, both running backs should be on fantasy radars as potential flex options.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: RBs to Start

    Patterson let us down last week at Carolina with just five carries for 18 yards and one catch for 2 yards on one target, but he should rebound this week against the Bears, who have allowed a running back to score or gain over 100 total yards in nine games in a row. In just the past three games against Dallas, Miami and Detroit, Chicago has allowed seven total touchdowns, and hopefully Patterson will score in a revenge game for him after he spent two seasons for the Bears in 2019-20. I like Patterson as a solid No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: RBs to Start

    The setup for Patterson is great against Carolina this week. It's a short week for the Panthers after their defense spent nearly 40 minutes on the field against the Bengals in Week 9. In that game against Cincinnati, Carolina couldn't stop Joe Mixon, who had 22 carries for 153 yards and four touchdowns, along with four catches for 58 yards and a touchdown on five targets. The Panthers have now allowed seven running backs to score at least 13 PPR points this season, and Patterson just scored 17 PPR points against the Chargers in Week 9 in his return from a four-game absence with a knee injury. Patterson has played five games this season, and he has a touchdown in four of them. He also scored a touchdown in both meetings with the Panthers last year.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Two scores in return from IR

    Patterson rushed 13 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns and secured his only target for nine yards in the Falcons' 20-17 loss to the Chargers on Sunday. Head coach Arthur Smith mostly held true to his word of easing Patterson back into the fold after a four-game stint on IR, but the versatile veteran still paced the Falcons in carries. Patterson scored from one and three yards out in the first and third quarter, respectively, and he could be in line for a larger workload in a Week 10 divisional road matchup against the Panthers on Thursday night.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Likely to be eased in

    Patterson (knee), who was activated from injured reserve Saturday, is expected to be eased back in with a more limited workload than usual in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Patterson missed the minimum four games while on IR after he underwent a left knee cleanup procedure in early October, but the Falcons aren't eager to have him take on his normal workload in his return to action with only three practices under his belt beforehand. Garafolo notes that the fact that the Falcons travel to Carolina for a Thursday night game in Week 10 is a factor in the team's intentions of limiting Patterson, who could find himself part of a three-man backfield committee with Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley. With that in mind, none of the three would appear to be high-percentage fantasy plays for Week 9.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Will be activated off IR

    Patterson (knee) will be activated off injured reserve Saturday and is set to play against the Chargers on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Patterson practiced all week, setting the stage for the multi-faceted back to make his return after the minimum four games. The Chargers allow a league-high 5.7 yards per carry through nine games, which should set the stage for the veteran to make a dominant return. Expect the Falcons to still incorporate Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley into the mix somewhat. Patterson averaged about 60 percent of the offensive snaps prior to the Week 4 injury.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: No decision before Saturday

    Coach Arthur Smith said the Falcons will wait until Saturday to make a decision on Patterson (knee) returning for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Tori McElhaney of the team's official site reports. Patterson returned to practice Wednesday and was designated to return from injured reserve. He's apparently avoided setbacks with the knee issue that required a minor procedure in early October, but the Falcons aren't yet ready to commit (as of Friday) to placing him back on the active roster. If that does end up happening, Patterson will take aim at a struggling Chargers defense that's given up a league-worst 5.7 yards per carry this season.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Returning to practice

    The Falcons announced Wednesday that Patterson (knee) has been designated for return from injured reserve, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Head coach Arthur Smith said Patterson will practice Wednesday, according to Josh Kendall of The Athletic, with the transaction opening up the running back's 21-day window to be evaluated for a return to the 53-man roster. Patterson has spent time rehabbing a left knee injury since being placed on IR after Week 4, but pending his participation level in practice this week, he could be activated for as early as Sunday's game against the Chargers. Tyler Allgeier has led the Atlanta backfield in Patterson's stead, but the 31-year-old will likely reclaim the No. 1 role once back to full health.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Eyeing potential Week 9 return

    Patterson (knee) posted a video Oct. 19 on his personal Twitter account featuring himself running at what appeared to be close to full speed. After being placed on injured reserve following Week 4, Patterson won't be eligible to resume practicing with the Falcons until next week. The Falcons haven't provided an official update on Patterson since he underwent a minor procedure on his left knee, but the 31-year-old's recent activity suggests a return to practice next Wednesday is plausible. Even if that comes to fruition, Patterson would need to demonstrate in those practice sessions that the knee issue is fully behind him before the Falcons would entertain activating him from IR ahead of their Week 9 matchup with the Chargers on Nov. 6. While Patterson remains out for at least one more game, however, the Falcons will likely turn to rookie Tyler Allgeier to headline their backfield this Sunday against the Panthers.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Placed on IR with knee injury

    The Falcons placed Patterson (knee) on injured reserve Monday following a procedure, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports. Patterson will need to spend at least four games on IR, but per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the plan is for him to return this season. An actual timetable for Patterson's recovery remains undisclosed, as do details of his knee procedure. The veteran entered Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns nursing a knee injury, and he logged only one carry in the second half before opting for surgery Monday. Rookie running back Tyler Allgeier looks primed for increased work in Patterson's stead, and Atlanta also inked Caleb Huntley to the 53-man roster in a corresponding move.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Scores on nine touches in win

    Patterson (knee) started and finished with nine rushes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns. Patterson was held out of practice this week with a knee injury, but he was ultimately cleared for action before kickoff as previously reported. The converted wide receiver finished with a strong fantasy game thanks to his third rushing score of the season. It is worth noting that Patterson fell behind Tyler Allgeier (10 carries for 84 yards) and Caleb Huntley (10 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown) in touches despite no reports of an injury after the game. A committee approach to the backfield would hurt the veteran's fantasy value, especially considering the lack of targets (four receptions for 28 yards) out of the backfield with Marcus Mariota under center so far this season. Patterson and Atlanta's rushing attack will face a stout Tampa Bay rushing defense next Sunday.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: RBs to Start

    I think you just have to trust Patterson until he fails, and this Week 4 game against Cleveland should be another successful performance for him. I liked him last week against the Seahawks, and he delivered with 17 carries for 141 yards and a touchdown, along with one catch for 12 yards on one target. This is the second time this season he scored 22 PPR points, and he's done a nice job when getting at least 18 total touches. The Browns are beat up on defense if Myles Garrett (undisclosed) and Jadeveon Clowney (ankle) are out, and this game has an implied total of 49.5 points, according to Caesars Sportsbook. Patterson could once again be a top 15 running back in all leagues.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Suiting up in Week 4

    Patterson (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Browns, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports. Patterson was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday with an official listing of "resting player/knee" before being a limited participant at Friday's session, earning a questionable designation for Week 4 in the process. The issue won't keep Patterson from game action, though, and he's now poised to lead the Falcons backfield yet again. Through three games this season, he's totaled 53 touches for 330 yards from scrimmage and two rushing touchdowns.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Expected to play Sunday

    Patterson (knee) plans to suit up for Sunday's game against the Browns, but his status could come down to the wire, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Patterson is officially listed as questionable, and Schefter reports a source close to the Falcons organization saying "it's close." The veteran running back resumed practicing in a limited capacity Friday after having missed two straight sessions to begin the week. Patterson's official status for Week 4 will be made available roughly 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, as Patterson will need to test his knee in pregame warmups.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Technically listed as questionable

    Patterson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns after returning to practice Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Patterson was held out Wednesday and Thursday, with the Falcons listing it as "resting player/ knee." That suggests his knee injury isn't serious, as does his return to practice Friday in a limited capacity, according to Tori McElhanney of the team's official site, but the Falcons nonetheless are giving him a designation ahead of a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday. Fantasy managers probably will want to check back after inactives are released at 11:30 a.m., even though Patterson is unlikely to be on Atlanta's list. He should be started in most formats if active, as the two best rushing totals of his career (141 and 120 yards) have occurred this season, and he's averaging 16.3 carries per game.
