Game status: Patrick is ACTIVE in Week 9.

Game day update: Patrick is expected to play in Week 9, per Ian Rapoport.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick is listed as questionable on the team’s official Week 9 injury report. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered back in Week 7. The injury forced him out of that game and caused him to miss last week’s as well. But he is expected to play this week, despite the injury designation.

Fantasy impact: Tim Patrick (hamstring)

Patrick has emerged as Denver’s No. 1 wide receiver since Courtland Sutton was injured, forging a solid connection with quarterback Drew Lock. He had 13 catches on 19 targets in three games before suffering his own injury. He went for more than 100 yards in two of those games as well.

This week, the Broncos play the Falcons which is a golden opportunity for Patrick resume his previous production levels against one of the league’s worst pass defenses. He should definitely be in your fantasy football lineup this week.
