BYU RB Tyler Allgeier went to the Falcons in Round 5 of the NFL Draft. Allgeier arrived at BYU as a non-scholarship player who spent time at both RB and LB. He eventually earned a scholarship, though, and topped 1,100 rushing yards each of his final 2 seasons. Allgeier reached workhorse status as a senior, delivering a 276-1,601-23 rushing line along with 28-199-0 receiving. He’s not especially speedy or athletic but brings a decent all-around package at 5’11 and 224 pounds. Although he dropped to Round 5, this is as strong a landing spot as Allgeier could have hoped for. He joins a Falcons RB room alongside Cordarrelle Patterson, Mike Davis, Damien Williams and Qadree Ollison. There’s a chance that Allgeier carves out a real role in 2022.

The Falcons are re-signing RB Cordarrelle Patterson, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. We'll look for details on the contract, but this was always the best-case scenario for Patterson. He had the rare 9th-year breakout in his Falcons debut last season, posting a 153-618-6 rushing line with 52-548-5 receiving to finish 9th among RBs in PPR points. Atlanta currently only Mike Davis and Damien Williams alongside Patterson in the backfield. We'll see what else the team adds, but Patterson has a chance to play a similar role in 2022.

Update: Patterson got a 2-year, $10.5 million deal, according to insider Aaron Wilson.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was limited in practice all week and was reportedly a game-time decision coming off the high-ankle sprain. C-Patt carries elevated risk in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is a "true game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Patterson is "feeling much better this week," per Rapoport, but the Falcons are "making sure they are smart about it." We'll get Atlanta's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

Falcons RB Qadree Ollison missed practice this week with a non-COVID illness and is not expected to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday, according to insider Orlando Ledbetter. Ollison doesn't show up on the official injury report because he's currently on the practice squad. He ended up leading the Cordarrelle Patterson-less Atlanta backfield last week, tallying 9 carries to Mike Davis' 3 and Wayne Gallman's 1. Patterson is trending toward returning for Sunday's game and is the only viable fantasy play in this backfield.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He supposedly had a chance to play vs. New England last Thursday night and put in 3 limited practices this week, so we're tentatively expecting Patterson to play. We'll get Atlanta's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He seemingly had at least an outside chance of playing vs. the Patriots last Thursday night, so a return for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars seems doable. We'll update Patterson's progress again tomorrow.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Patriots. It would have been surprising if he'd been able to play just 4 days after suffering what's believed to be a mild high-ankle sprain. Patterson did get in a couple of limited practices this week, so a Week 12 return seems possible. His absence tonight leaves Atlanta's backfield to Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman. We're betting on Davis leading the way in touches, but it's a murky situation (and a bad running game in general).

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) was limited again on Wednesday and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Patriots. HC Arthur Smith said that Patterson will be a game-time decision. We'd be surprised if he played if he's truly dealing with a high-ankle sprain as has been speculated. Patterson would come with elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he does end up active.

Falcons WR Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. That at least gives him a shot to play vs. the Patriots on Thursday night. We'll see what he does in Wednesday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson could miss "a couple weeks" with the ankle injury he suffered in the loss to Dallas. Former head team Dr. David Chao believes Patterson has a high-ankle sprain based on video review. If that's the case, a couple weeks would be the best-case scenario. Plan on Patterson at least missing Thursday night's game vs. the Patriots. We'll see when he's able to return from there. His absence will leave Atlanta's backfield to Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson injured his ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. He eventually re-entered but had that ankle re-taped multiple times and finished with just 4 carries and 2 targets. Patterson's status will be worth monitoring this coming week.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley is INACTIVE for today's game vs. the Panthers due to a personal matter. He also missed Week 5 for the same reason. Ridley's absence leaves Atlanta with WRs Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus and Tajae Sharpe atop the depth chart. TE Kyle Pitts and RB Cordarrelle Patterson should also play even bigger roles in the passing game.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley did not travel with the team to London and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jets due to a personal matter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll look for more info on the situation and whether Ridley will be out beyond Week 5. WR Russell Gage (ankle) is also out for Sunday's game, leaving Atlanta with WRs Olamide Zaccheaus, Tajae Sharpe and Christian Blake. We wouldn't mess with them in fantasy lineups. RB Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to play a big role in this passing game. And TE Kyle Pitts should see more volume with Ridley out.

Falcons RB Wayne Gallman is inactive for today's game vs. the Eagles. He looks like a healthy scratch after joining the team just recently. Cordarrelle Patterson will back up starting RB Mike Davis today.

The Falcons released RB D'Onta Foreman. Atlanta is down to Mike Davis, Qadree Ollison and Cordarrelle Patterson at RB. We'll see if they add to the backfield over the next few days. But Davis is looking safer and safer as the team's clear lead back.

Cordarrelle Patterson is expected to provide "depth at RB" for the Falcons, according to insider Orlando Ledbetter. Patterson played 70% of his offensive snaps for the Bears last year at RB, finishing with 64 carries and 21 catches. Atlanta is weak at both RB and WR, so Patterson might end up contributing a bit at both spots this season. He's an intriguing late-round pick in best-ball drafts.

Back before his team elected not to draft any RBs, new Falcons HC Arthur Smith said he plans a committee approach in the backfield. “We’re not going to have Derrick Henry here,” Smith told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in April. “So, it’s not like I think we’re going to have Derrick Henry. The reality is that we’ll get multiple backs in here, and we’ll have the way we trust our schemes and the way we teach the details of it, and we’ll commit to it." Mike Davis stands as the clear leader in a group who's next most accomplished rusher is Cordarrelle Patterson. But Patterson will factor in. Atlanta signed Javian Hawkins after the draft. We'll see about Qadree Ollison. And the Falcons could still add pieces. Davis makes for a solid target in current best-ball drafting. Just beware of projecting him too many touches simply because we can't see exactly where else they would go yet.
