It’s time to respect the Cordarrelle Patterson fantasy football value. This was said in a previous article this week. But for those late to the party, he should be a top priority pickup off the waiver wire this week.
Yes, his usage is legit, no matter the game script for the Atlanta Falcons. While we could debate whether he is a running back or a wide receiver, there is no debate that he is getting the job done for his fantasy owners this season.
Cordarrelle Patterson Fantasy Football Outlook
Entering NFL Week 3, Cordarrelle Patterson was the RB9 in PPR scoring fantasy football leagues. He was given seven carries in each of his first three games, while also totaling 16 targets in the passing game. Many debated whether this workload was legit, but for those using our NFL stats, you knew about the snaps he was getting. Opportunity leads to productivity, and Patterson’s opportunity was legit.
Not only should Patterson be owned, but he should also be started. I said multiple times this week that he is the perfect flex play for your fantasy lineup. However, after a massive Week 4, Patterson may have earned a permanent spot as an RB2 in reception-rewarding leagues.
Patterson’s Hat Trick in Week 4
While we were high on Cordarrelle Patterson for fantasy football in Week 4, nobody could have expected the performance he put together against the Washington Football Team.
Patterson packed the stats with six carries for 34 yards, then five receptions for 82 yards and three touchdowns. Altogether, he totaled 34.6 fantasy points in PPR scoring.
If he’s available, add Cordarelle Patterson to your fantasy football team this week.
