2021 Fantasy Outlook
Patterson topped 1,000 rushing yards in each of his three seasons at Buffalo, including a six-game, pandemic-shortened campaign in 2020. Still, he went undrafted this past spring, despite having more than a few fans in the prospect/fantasy community. NFL GMs apparently were less impressed, likely noting Patterson's small frame (5-6, 195) and lack of collegiate receiving production (zero receptions last year). However, going undrafted worked in Patterson's favor, as he quickly signed with a Washington team that was weak in the backfield behind Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic. After putting up 180 total yards in the preseason, Patterson had a spot on the initial 53-man roster, while veteran back Peyton Barber was released. The undrafted rookie thus starts his NFL career as Washington's No. 3 running back. Read Past Outlooks

Patterson appears to have a spot on Washington's initial 53-man roster, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
The undrafted rookie out of Buffalo is one of three running backs left on the roster after Peyton Barber was released Tuesday morning, though it is possible Washington re-signs Barber after cutdown day (and thus avoids guaranteeing his salary). Even if Barber is brought back, the willingness to risk losing him suggests Washington is comfortable with Patterson in the No. 3 role. The rookie likely won't match Barber's contributions as a blocker or coverage man on special teams, but Patterson could get some touches on kick returns and would also offer a more explosive element if Washington ever needed to replace an injured Antonio Gibson or J.D. McKissic.
