Cordarrelle Patterson News
Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) was not spotted at practice on Thursday after also being held out on Wednesday. The Falcons listed his absence as a "veterans rest day" on Wednesday, but his second straight missed practice makes this a situation worth monitoring. Fantasy managers should check back in for his status on Friday, but as of now, it doesn't seem like something to be overly concerned about.

The Seattle defense had no answers for Patterson, as he had four rushing attempts of 17 or more yards, including a long of 40 yards. While he was a force on the ground, the former first-round pick had only one target in the game for 12 yards. Patterson is a plug-and-play RB2 next week against the Cleveland Browns.
In many ways, 2021 was a career year for Atlanta Falcons running back/wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Known for his athleticism and big-play abilities, offensive coordinators have always struggled to find ways to get Patterson involved as a consistent part of the game plan. Patterson has made quite a name for himself as a kick returner before 2021, making first-team All-Pro on four different occasions.
