Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Cordarrelle Patterson Note

Patterson turning into a league-winner at the RB position is something that I absolutely did not expect in 2021, but here we are! After missing Week 11 with an injury, Patterson returned to the lineup and went off for 27 Half PPR fantatasy points. He saw 16 carries for 108 yards and added two receptions for 27 yards with two touchdowns in Week 13. The Falcons were finally able to move the ball on offense and Patterson was essentially the lone reason for that. He's proven that he can get the job done for fantasy football this season and there's very little reason to doubt him moving forward. While the matchup against the Bucs is a terrible one - as has been thoroughly discussed all season - Patterson has too much involvement as both a runner and receiver to sit in this one. He can be viewed as a low-end RB1.

Kyle Pitts Note

Did you know that Pitts has just one Red Zone target since Atlanta came out of their bye week in Week 6? He finished as the TE2 in Week 7 after posting 163 receiving yards against Miami, but he hasn't reeled in more than four receptions in any game since that point. He also has found the end zone just once on the entire year up to this point and his fantasy finishes are dropping quickly as a result. He hasn't finished inside the top-10 TEs over the course of the last five games and there are reasons to be pessimistic that he will do it at any point in the foreseeable future. With no other vertical receiving threats in this offense, Pitts is the center of attention for opposing defenses and they're making life incredibly difficult for him. The future is still very bright for Pitts down the road, but we need to downgrade him from a redraft perspective in the meantime. Pitts can be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 for this matchup against Tampa Bay.

Russell Gage Note

It's a strange world we live in, but Gage has now seen 15 targets over the past two games and he's becoming a reliable receiving option for the Falcons offense. Apparently Cordarrelle Patterson is the key to Atlanta being able to move the ball this year - just like everyone predicted, right? - and Gage is taking advantage of the increased opportunity. He's certainly not someone that we can classify as a league-winner, but if you're in need of a high-floor FLEX option this next week, Gage should be on your radar.
