Jaret Patterson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 18 vs. the Cowboys. RBs Jonathan Williams and Jaret Patterson figure to carry the workload on Sunday. The Cowboys' defense rank as the 4th-toughest matchup for opposing RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. It would've been tough to trust Robinson or Antonio Gibson, who underwent foot surgery on Thursday, in this game for fantasy purposes. We feel even more skittish about the backups. Neither Williams nor Patterson is anything more than speculative RB3/flex consideration.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (knee) didn't practice on Thursday. It's not looking good for the rookie at this point, but Friday will give him a chance to participate in a limited fashion perhaps. RB Antonio Gibson was placed on IR already, and the team elevated RB Jaret Patterson from the practice squad in a corresponding move. This messy situation doesn't bode well for any fantasy manager trying to decipher this situation for Week 18 vs. the Cowboys. Check in tomorrow once we have a more concrete idea of what to expect from the Commanders' backfield.

The Commanders have elevated RB Jaret Patterson from the practice squad, ahead of Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. It's not a surprising move, given that RB Antonio Gibson will be out once again. He landed on IR Thursday after missing last week with knee and foot injuries. RB Brian Robinson Jr. (knee) joined Gibson in missing Wednesday's practice. Don't be surprised if Robinson sits out the finale as well. Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch says Patterson "seems likely to get a large share of work on Sunday." Washington also has RB Jonathan Williams on the active roster. Beware of using any Commanders offensive players in your Week 18 lineup.

Commanders RB Jaret Patterson has been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. He'll join Brian Robinson and Jonathan Williams in the Antonio Gibson-less backfield. Robinson should dominate the ball-carrying work but is likely to lose passing-down snaps to Williams and potentially Patterson.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson was not activated from the COVID list on Saturday and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. Washington promoted RB Wendell Smallwood from the practice squad. He'll join Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams in the backfield.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson has been placed on the COVID list. He's a long shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. Gibson's absence will leave Washington with RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams on the active roster. RB Wendell Smallwood will likely be elevated from the practice squad. We'd expect Patterson and Williams to split most of the rushing work, with Smallwood potentially playing on passing downs. In other words, it's a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's "some optimism" Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) will be able to play vs. the Cowboys tonight. Gibson remains a game-time decision, Rapoport adds. The late kickoff makes this a tough situation for fantasy owners. We won't get Washington's inactives until 7 pm ET. If you're hoping to use Gibson, add RB Jaret Patterson as the fall-back option if Gibson ends up inactive.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week and seems to be in real danger of missing this one. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If Gibson can’t play against Dallas, Washington would be down to RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through this injury on Tuesday night's loss to the Eagles but appears to be in danger of missing this Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. With RB J.D. McKissic on IR, Gibson's absence would leave Washington with RBs Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams.

Washington has placed RB J.D. McKissic on IR for the neck injury that stemmed from the same hit that gave him a concussion. With 4 games left in the season -- including tonight's visit to Philadelphia -- McKissic is likely done for the year. That elevates Jaret Patterson to the #2 spot on the depth chart behind Antonio Gibson, who should see workhorse touches the rest of the way. Washington also elevated QB Kyle Shurmur from the practice squad ahead of the Eagles game. He'll back up Garrett Gilbert.

Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. That leaves only Jaret Patterson and Wendell Smallwood behind Antonio Gibson in the backfield. Gibson should continue to dominate carries and pick up extra work in the passing game with McKissic out. HC Ron Rivera suggested Friday that Smallwood would take over some of McKissic's role.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) did not practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if he'll continue playing through the stress fracture in his shin on Sunday vs. the Packers. His absence would mean increased roles for RBs J.D. McKissic and Jaret Patterson.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson was in and out of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs with trouble with the stress fracture in his shin. "We'll see how he is," HC Ron Rivera said afterward. "We did take him out of the game because he was struggling with it. ... We'll see how he is tomorrow morning." This issue figures to linger throughout the season for Gibson. RBs J.D. McKissic and Jaret Patterson could both be in for expanded roles at some point.
