2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
A WR/KR early in his career, Patterson took on the running back role in 2021 for an anemic Falcons offense in desperate need of a back. A true hybrid player, he led the team in rushing and was one of the top receiving backs in the NFL. He finished 5th among NFL backs in targets, 7th in receptions, 2nd in receiving yards and 4th in receiving TD's.

This year, with Calvin Ridley suspended for the season and Russell Gage lost to free agency, Atlanta really needs a receiver to pair with rookie first-round pick Drake London. Expect Patterson to be that guy. At 31 years of age, he is not built to take the pounding of a lead back, and in fact, looked like he felt the effects of that late last season. Look for rookie Tyler Allgeier to be the 1st and 2nd down back with Patterson filling the 3rd down change of pace role as a hybrid runner-receiver.

How to play him depends on your league. The Falcons depth chart still lists him at RB. If that's the case, he could be a very smart play in PPR formats. If he's listed at WR, where it sounds like most of his snaps will come from, then he's a back end WR2 who could see a lot of volume targets due to his versatility and ability to align all over the field. There's little competition for targets on this team beyond TE Kyle Pitts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Falcons activate Cordarrelle Patterson off IR
Expected to play in Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 5, 2:15 pm

Atlanta Falcons
The #Falcons are activating RB Cordarrelle Patterson off IR today, sources say. He’ll be back in action tomorrow vs. the #Chargers after practicing all week. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The only team that runs the ball more than Atlanta is Chicago. Usage will be a concern as both Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley are expected to remain involved in the offense making Patterson a risky Flex play in Week 9 against the Chargers.


Injury Kyle Pitts Out for Week 5, hamstring injury
Missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 7, 12:00 am

Atlanta Falcons
Tight end Kyle Pitts has been formally ruled out of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Falcons announced on Friday. Pitts didn't practice all week due to a hamstring injury, falling in line with the fact he's now unavailable for this divisional matchup. (AtlantaFalcons.com)

FFToday's Take: Being ruled out Friday, doesn't bode well for Week 6. With Cordarrelle Patterson placed on IR earlier in the week, the Falcons now find themselves with only one playmaker, rookie Drake London, as they take on the Bucs in Week 5. Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley will handle the running back duties.


Injury Cordarrelle Patterson placed on IR, knee injury
Will miss the next four games
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 3, 1:10 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons’ running back Cordarrelle Patterson has been placed on injured reserve due to his knee injury, meaning he’s out at least the next four games. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Patterson will be eligible to return in Week 9 against the Chargers. In the meantime, Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley will handle the bulk of the rushing duties the next few weeks against the Bucs, 49ers, Bengals and Panthers. The Falcons ran the ball 14-straight times yesterday against the Browns. Huntley posted a 10-56-1 line with 0 targets in Week 4.


Injury Cordarrelle Patterson listed as Questionable, knee inury
Limited in practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 22, 1:09 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Cordarrelle Patterson missed Wednesday and Thursday's practice with what was initially announced as "resting player/knee." He returned to practice on Friday, but in a limited capacity. (AtlantaFalcons.com)

FFToday's Take: HC Arthur Smith said the team will make a decision on Patterson's status on Saturday. If Patterson were to miss, we should see a lot of rookie Tyler Allgeier at running back for the Falcons. Allgeier played on 37% of the snaps last week against the Seahawks. Cleveland represents a neutral matchup against RBs.
