  • Cordarrelle Patterson Finds The End Zone In Week 18

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson scored a two-yard rushing touchdown in the team's 30-17 Week 18 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The veteran running back ended the 2022 season with eight rushing touchdowns, a career-high. Furthermore, the former first-round pick has found the end zone in three of the past four games. While he has played well this season, Patterson's future is up in the air. Tyler Allgeier has taken over as the lead back and has shown starter potential for next year. Atlanta might decide to release the veteran and roll with the rookie. Even if he returns next season, Patterson will take a backseat to Allgeier.

More importantly, the veteran running back has averaged only 8.7 rushing attempts for 40.7 yards and 7.3 half-point PPR fantasy points over the past three weeks. Fantasy players should view Patterson as a limited flex option for the rest of the year.

Unfortunately, the former first-round pick has scored 13.4 total fantasy points over the past two weeks. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have held running backs to only 17.1 fantasy points per game, the sixth-fewest in the NFL this season.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson Makes History

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson made history in the 27-24 Week 11 win over the Chicago Bears. The veteran running back had a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the second quarter, his ninth career kickoff returned for a touchdown, breaking the NFL record. Patterson also totaled 52 rushing yards on 10 attempts and two receptions for seven yards in the passing game. The former first-round pick hasn't put up the same fantasy production he did to begin the year. However, his 52 rushing yards are a pleasant surprise after totaling only 18 yards in Week 10. With a matchup against the Washington Commanders next week, fantasy players should consider Patterson a low-end RB2.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson Hopes To Rebound This Week

Furthermore, Chicago has given up 28.3 fantasy points and two rushing touchdowns per game to running backs over the past three weeks.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson Sees Five Rushing Attempts

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson had only five rushing attempts in the team's 25-15 Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The veteran running back had 13 rushing attempts for 44 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Chargers, his first game back from knee surgery. Whether the former first-round pick saw a light workload because of the short week or not, fantasy players have to be frustrated with the Atlanta running game. Patterson had fewer rushing attempts than Tyler Allgeier and only one more than fourth-string running back Avery Williams. Hopefully, he sees a normal workload in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.
