I don’t want to argue semantics, but isn’t it difficult to have a hot streak if your offense doesn’t utilize you?
Of course he’s being used. That’s why he is the RB3 in PPR formats. Question is, how long is this usage gonna work? DCs around the league should have his plays figured out by now. And the Falcons are facing some pretty tough defenses down the road.
Oh do come on! That was in the dark ages, when football was still a gentleman’s sport, and the defender would shake the RB’s hand before attempting to tackle him.
But okay - that gentleman had his breakout in his age-33 season. It was followed by a pretty moderate season, and then another good one. Impressive enough.
But let me ask you - assuming Patterson keeps playing the entire season on his current level. 33% snap share. 7 rushing attempts, 5 targets, increased RZ usage. How much would you spend on him during the offseason, to get him rostered for your 2022 season?
