Cordarrelle Patterson Signing With Steelers

Tuesday, March 26, 4:19 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers are signing running back/wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Patterson enjoyed the best season of his career under current Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith in Atlanta, so the move gives the veteran a smidge of fantasy relevance in 2024. In 2021, Patterson rushed 153 times for 618 yards and six touchdowns and caught 52 passes for 548 yards and five scores. He finished that campaign as the RB9 in PPR leagues. However, he posted just 219 yards of offense last season and turned 33 years old on March 17. In all likelihood, he will primarily be used on special teams and as a gadget player in the new-look Pittsburgh offense. Patterson holds the NFL record for kick return touchdowns (nine), and this move was made on the same day the league approved a revised kickoff.

Josh Jacobs Dealing With Minor Hamstring Injury

Tuesday, May 21, 9:21 PM

Green Bay Packers running back Josh Jacobs (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury, but head coach Matt LaFleur said he won't be out for long. Jacobs was heavily limited during organized team activities on Tuesday. It's not exactly what Packers fans want to hear from their new RB during offseason workouts, but it's still early in the offseason, and Jacobs should be fine for the start of training camp at the end of July as long as he doesn't aggravate the injury. The 26-year-old's absence will give intriguing rookie third-rounder MarShawn Lloyd some more repetitions this week, as well as AJ Dillon, who re-signed this offseason. Jacobs is fully expected to be the Packers' primary RB1 in 2024, but he's most likely going to face much more competition for touches in his new digs than he did in Sin City with the Raiders.
