Cordarrelle Patterson News
Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson, who was arguably the team's MVP in 2021 after signing a one-year, $3 million deal in the offseason, may be one and done in Atlanta. Patterson led the team in rushing (618 yards) and touchdowns (11) and was third on the team in receiving (548 yards). However, he's 31 years old and averaged 3.6 yards per carry or fewer in the last five games of the season. Interested teams will proceed cautiously in free agency because of his age and diminished returns late in the year, but if a team steps up with a deal in the $7 million range, it will be hard for the Falcons to match that, considering their salary cap constraints and other areas of need on the roster. It might have been an outlier season for Patterson, and fantasy managers shouldn't expect a repeat in 2022, especially if he leaves Atlanta for another organization.

Patterson is well-rested after missing last week's game and should see the bulk of the backfield touches this week.
Atlanta Falcons playmaker Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is "feeling much better" but remains a true-game time decision, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Patterson missed last Thursday's game against the Patriots, and although he has had 10 days to recover, Atlanta wants to ensure "they are smart about it." Fantasy managers will have an official word on Patterson's status around 11:30 a.m. EST. If he plays, he can be deployed as a high-end RB2.
