Cordarrelle Patterson News
Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson carried the ball 14 times for 54 rushing yards, adding seven catches for 60 receiving yards in a 27-20 win over the Jets. Patterson's fantasy managers had an early scare, as the dynamic back briefly exited the game to be evaluated for a concussion- though he triumphantly returned to lead the backfield with a season-high 21 touches.

Despite his strong play, the 30-year-old has yet to play more than 42 percent of the snaps in a game this year, though that could change this week with Calvin Ridley (personal) and Russell Gage (ankle) sidelined. Patterson is in the RB2 conversation, particularly in PPR formats, as he should continue to have a rock-solid role as a pass-catcher.
