Jaret Patterson rushed 12 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Eagles, adding five catches for 41 yards.
With both Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic out for this game, Washington turned their backfield over to Patterson. He didn't disappoint, securing all five of his targets after netting an early touchdown from 11 yards out. He out-carried his backups 12-6 and led all Football Team running backs in targets. Gibson is on the COVID list and should return for Week 18 so Patterson's time as the team's RB1 is seemingly over. If Gibson doesn't clear COVID protocols before next week, Patterson will be a solid FLEX option versus the Giants.
