Last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Patterson did not score a touchdown, but still managed to produce 78 yards on 13 carries and three receptions for 18 yards (12.6 fantasy points). The 30-year-old has been shined throughout the season on both the ground and in the receiving game for the Falcons this season.
