Will Cordarrelle Patterson Play in Week 4? (2022 Fantasy Football)
Cordarrelle Patterson is coming off a huge game in Week 3 against the Seahawks where he took 17 attempts for 141 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in a 27-23 victory. The running back has turned in elite production in two of the first three weeks this season, turning in top-five RB production in each of those matchups. However, he has been struggling with a knee injury throughout practice this week, leaving his status for Week 4 against the Browns up in the air. Will Patterson suit up and lead the Atlanta backfield on Sunday? Here’s what we know.

What the Experts are Saying
This is another awesome, low-key matchup for Patterson to go wild this week. The Browns have limited opposing running backs to the seventh-lowest open field yards and 12th-lowest explosive run rate, but outside of limiting home runs, they have been susceptible to chunk gains. Cleveland has granted the 11th-highest rushing success rate and sixth-highest rushing EPA. Outside of his Week 2 dud, Patterson has averaged 21.5 touches and 144.5 total yards as the RB6 in fantasy points per game. He’s been efficient with his touches ranking 18th in yards created per touch, seventh in breakaway run rate, and 22nd in juke rate. He’s a solid RB2 with RB1 upside.
