The team didn’t add another running back in a corresponding move, and instead will roll with Patterson, Allgeier and Williams. Allgeier is coming off a huge game where he ran 17 times for 139 yards and a score. Patterson will likely remain involved as well and finished last week with a 14-52-1 line.
ATL RB Tyler Allgeier - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Arizona Cardinals
Tyler Allgeier has been getting more work out of the backfield of late, seeing 18 rush attempts to Cordarrelle Patterson's 8 last week against the Ravens. Atlanta now has a good opportunity to get more of a look at Allgeier now that they have been eliminated from the playoffs, so the 2023 work begins now. Perhaps Allgeier could see more work as a bellcow back. It also helps that Allgeier is facing one of the worst run defenses in the Cardinals this week, setting Allgeier up for a potentially good fantasy day and putting him on the borderline of RB1 territory.
