Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 5: Scouring for pickups after latest rash of injuries
So in all likelihood, you're gonna need to hit the fantasy waiver wire this week. Gallup has an 1,100-yard season to his credit with Dak Prescott as his quarterback, so his fantasy potential is well established. It's hard to believe there's not at least one manager in every 12-team league who should be adding Gallup this week. Edmonds saved his fantasy week with a 7-yard TD reception, but he was decisively out-touched by the guy who now appears to sit atop the team's backfield hierarchy. Over the next three weeks, they face the Texans, Colts and Giants, which seems like a layup line for fantasy purposes.wftv.com
Falcons put Patterson on IR, seek new starting running back
The Atlanta Falcons must find a new starting running back after placing Cordarrelle Patterson on injured reserve on Monday with a knee injury. Coach Arthur Smith said Patterson had a minor knee procedure. Patterson will miss at least four games, leaving rookie Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley as the top healthy running backs for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.news.yahoo.com
Fantasy football Week 2 stats notebook: There are some sleeping giants in Falcons offense
The Falcons are unlikely to be a good team overall this year. He handled 31% of the team air yards and the results were solid too, with 74 yards on five catches. So maybe we can get some air yards going CeeDee Lamb's direction. If we get that version of Barkley for 17 games he will join the Tier 1 of fantasy running backs with ease. He's going to look like a huge Round 2 reach — on several of my teams, by the way — if that doesn't change.wftv.com

Falcons' thin offense has Patterson inactive vs. Patriots
ATLANTA — (AP) — Running back Cordarrelle Patterson is inactive for Atlanta against the New England Patriots on Thursday night, taking one of the Falcons' most productive players away from an already depleted offense. Patterson will miss the game after being limited in the short practice week with an ankle injury. Patterson is the team's leading rusher but has perhaps made his biggest impact as a receiver out of the backfield. Atlanta's top wide receiver, Calvin Ridley, is missing his fourth consecutive game. The Falcons also are without backup tight end Hayden Hurst, with an ankle injury.wftv.com

Bears beat Vikings 33-27 to stay in stride in playoff race
That 14-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, his second score of the game, put Chicago ahead again by double digits. Every time the Vikings made a push, this once-flailing Bears offense had an answer. Cairo Santos, who converted all four of his kicks, stretched his streak to 22 straight field goals made. The Vikings, who finished 3-5 at home this year, had four goal-to-go situations that yielded only two touchdowns. When the Vikings beat them 19-13 five weeks ago in Chicago, the Bears managed two first-half field goals and needed a kickoff return touchdown by Cordarrelle Patterson to stay competitive.

They fired general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia while elevating Bevell, their offensive coordinator, to interim coach. But the Lions turned things around down the stretch, sending the Bears (5-7) to their sixth straight loss. The Lions came out on top after losing four of five, and Stafford gave Bevell the game ball.
Cousins, Vikings overcome Patterson return, beat Bears 19-13
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins throws during the first half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 16, 2020, in Chicago. Cousins threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns, and the Minnesota Vikings overcame a 104-yard kickoff return by Chicago’s Cordarrelle Patterson to beat the Bears 19-13. “We’ll try to keep building on it now, and it’ll be so important to keep stringing these together if we can.

Cousins completed 25 of 36 passes with two touchdowns to Thielen, who has nine on the season.
