Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
There have been some shocking storylines from the 2021 NFL season so far, but the craziest has to be the fact that Patterson is now the Atlanta Falcons' RB1 over Davis. Patterson has now seen 14 carries in each of the past two games for the Falcons and he's been an extremely valuable fantasy asset this season. Moving forward, we have to have complete confidence in starting Patterson each week as a high-end RB2 with upside due to the opportunity he's seeing in this Falcons offense. It's bizarre and it's certainly something that no one was predicting, but here we are. Even in a tough matchup against the Panthers defense that's allowing just 11.3 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, we need to start Patterson with full confidence. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Patterson has scored 50 fantasy points over his last three games. He should be a WR2 with upside against a Panthers D that is 11th against fantasy wide receivers and first against fantasy running backs.
