Cordarrelle Patterson Resting, Not Dealing With Ankle Issue

Thursday, November 9, 9:57 AM

Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson sat out of Wednesday's practice due to rest, not the ankle injury he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Patterson left briefly on Sunday to tend to the ailment but returned to finish the game as the RB3 for the Falcons. The 32-year-old joined some other Atlanta veterans on their rest day. Patterson won't have that big of a role on offense against Arizona on Sunday as long as Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier remain healthy.

Tyler Allgeier Sees Decreased Role Again

Sunday, November 26, 9:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier began the season splitting the backfield duties with rookie Bijan Robinson. However, it appears the Falcons are finally ready to let Robinson loose and he has been making the most of it. That means, Allgeier will become the No. 2 option and see a reduced role going forward. On Sunday, Allgeier rushed 10 times for 64 yards in the win over the New Orleans Saints. A majority of his carries came in the fourth quarter as the Falcons were just trying to run out the clock. He did average 6.4 yards per carry, but the volume is going to be the biggest concern going forward. Fantasy managers should consider Allgeier a touchdown-dependent RB3 heading into next week's matchup against the New York Jets.
