News: 5 days agoPatterson rushed five times for 11 yards and caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.
Spin: Five of Patterson's six touches came in the first half, and his lone second-half touch went for negative-one yard. The veteran fumbled his final touch of the first half out of bounds, so his lack of ball security may have played a part in his limited role down the stretch. Either way, Patterson's fantasy value remains limited as long as Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier are healthy.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Patterson was one of the surprising breakout players in fantasy back in 2021 (ninth at RB in fantasy points), but the versatile veteran came back to earth a bit last season. He maintained a respectable role in the running game (11.1 carries per game), but saw his targets plummet from 68 in 2021 (sixth most among RBs) to 31 in 2022 (43rd). The 32-year-old's fantasy value was bailed out by eight TDs (all rushing), though he played a reduced role down the stretch as the team put more on the plate of then-rookie Tyler Allgeier. With rookie Bijan Robinson taking over as Altanta's feature back (and Allgeier also in the mix), Patterson will be limited to no more than the occassional touch and is no longer a fantasy option.
