Falcons' Tyler Allgeier set for lead work in light of Cordarrelle Patterson injury

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier is in line for a starter's workload following Cordarrelle Patterson's palcement on injured reserve.

What It Means:

Patterson had apparently been dealign with a pretty painful knee injury throughout the last week, and despite playing on Sunday, he is now headed to the shelf for a minimum of four weeks. Now, it'll be rookies Allgeier and Caleb Huntley as the next men up for the Falcons. Veteran Damien Williams is eligible to come off injured reserve in Week 6, but for now, the youngsters will get a chance to shine as the top options in Arthur Smith's backfield.

Our models currently project Allgeier for 51.02 rushing yards, 0.43 touchdowns, 1.55 catches, 10.31 yards, 0.06 scores and 9.69 FanDuel points for Week 5 against Tampa Bay.
