Cordarrelle Patterson Week 7 Outlook - Falcons at Dolphins

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 21st 2021, 6:19am EDT

Patterson played a season-high 46 snaps in the Falcons' Week 5 win over the Jets in London - 20 more than his previous high this season. Is that a sign that the Falcons are all in on Paterson as a major driver of their offense? Perhaps they should be. Patterson has been terrific as a pass-catcher, lining up all over the formation - in the backfield, in the slot, out wide - and catching 25 of 31 targets for 295 yards and four touchdowns. He's also been solid as a runner, with 41 carries for 173 yards and a touchdown. He's currently the RB3 in fantasy scoring on a per-game basis, and while it's probably unrealistic to expect that pace to continue, C-Patt is an automatic start in all season-long leagues. He checks in as the RB7 in this week's rankings (and as the WR14 if your league only grants him WR eligibility).
