Cordarrelle Patterson will be a major part of the special team's plan in Atlanta. He's most likely to be used in a gadget role but could also see a more traditional role for the Falcons. (The Athletic)
The depth chart at running back behind Mike Davis is wide open and it's possible Patterson could carve out a role as a gadget player in the backfield. However, a more traditional role may result in the former Bear playing more snaps at receiver where the Falcons are also lacking options behind Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage. Ultimately, the eight-year pro is unlikely to receive enough touches every week to be a dependable fantasy asset. Patterson continues to be off the radar for redraft and dynasty purposes except in the biggest of formats that score return yards.
