The Atlanta Falcons announced Week 4 inactives and Cordarrelle Patterson is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Patterson was listed as questionable this week due to a knee injury. He didn’t participate in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but logged a limited session on Friday.

Patterson was downgraded in the offseason, and I can't exactly tell you why. Maybe it was because we assumed that defenses would be better prepared to game plan for him, but that hasn't been the case to start the year. He is dominating defenses on the ground and in the passing game for the second year in a row. Patterson has become a staple of the Atlanta offense and should be started in your fantasy football lineup when he is active. The Browns usually present a tough matchup for running backs, but injuries on the defensive side of the ball should give Patterson more upside. Regardless of format, start Patterson in Week 4.
