Draft note
by John Paulsen
Patterson is currently the RB28 off the board at Underdog and has a general consensus rank of RB38, while 4for4 has him ranked as a high-end RB3. He averaged 13.3 touches per game (34th among running backs) yet finished as the fantasy RB9 with the 19th-highest per game scoring average. Prior to his ankle sprain in Week 10, he was the fantasy RB7 through the first nine weeks. The Falcons cut Mike Davis and drafted Tyler Allgeier in the fifth round. Allgeier is a bruiser, so he could take some between-the-tackles work without infringing on Patterson’s money touches. Given the state of the Atlanta receiving corps, Patterson could see an uptick in targets after averaging 4.3 per game last season.

ATL RB Cordarrelle Patterson - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
Who would have thought a 30-year-old converted running back would have the best season of his career? Well, that’s exactly what happened with Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson, who totaled over 1,150 yards and scored 11 total touchdowns (6 rushing, 5 receiving). He also caught 52 passes for 548 yards, including three games with at least 80 receiving yards and 126 in Week 9 against the Saints. Arthur Smith figured out a way to utilize Patterson and should continue to do so in 2022. He should continue to see plenty of touches and opportunities this season.

2022 Fantasy Downside
The Falcons finally realized they need to hit the reset button and, as a result, took a major downgrade at the quarterback position. No disrespect to Marcus Mariota (or Desmond Ridder), but he’s no Matt Ryan. The passing offense also won’t be as strong now that Calvin Ridley is suspended for the entire season, though that could turn into a positive for Patterson to see more targets.

2022 Bottom Line
Patterson will be the main pass-catching running back in Atlanta, as rookie Tyler Allgeier should mostly handle early-down work. He’s currently a top-30 running back for us, partly due to the quarterback and the limited work, but he still has RB2 upside as long as his pass-game usage remains the same. Not bad for a 31-year-old running back.
