Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson not starting?

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 21:33:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been working with the second-team offense, but offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects Patterson to carve out a role.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson still possesses big-play speed, and regardless of what his role is to open the year, he is worth drafting as a bench option on his potential alone.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson to return kicks again

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 12:19:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will be the primary kickoff returner this season, according to special teams coordinator Mike Priefer. Priefer said he considers Patterson to be the best kick returner in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson still has work to do as far as a wide receiver, but he'll have added value in leagues that award kickoff and/or punt returns. He's still no more than a WR5 behind Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson praised

Sat, 23 May 2015 21:40:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson once again has drawn praise from Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer -- this time for his route-running improvements. Patterson has worked extensively this offseason to become a better receiver from a technical standpoint.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a popular breakout candidate in 2014 but barely saw the field in the second half of the season after falling out of favor with Zimmer due to his limited knowledge of nuanced routes. The explosive third-year receiver could be an undervalued WR4 draft target if he continues to turn heads and finds a way to earn regular playing time.

Vikings | Coach happy with Cordarrelle Patterson

Thu, 14 May 2015 10:25:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been impressive during offseason workouts, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "He's really done well," Zimmer said. "He's running routes good; he's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed with the things that he's done."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson saw a drop in all of his stats this past season and likely will enter the 2015 season as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver. Owners in deeper leagues could consider selecting Patterson in one of the late rounds in drafts.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson looking to improve

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 08:35:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said he plans to focus on improving his route running this offseason. "Just route running," Patterson said. "Growing up, I was always athletic and could just do anything. I'm in the NFL now, so I just have to focus on my craft and just work at route running, getting in and getting out of breaks and stuff like that."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a flop in 2014, but the acquisition of Mike Wallace should shift some of the defensive attention away from him. Patterson is a great WR3 in traditional leagues. His promise may make it tough to acquire him as such, though.

Vikings | GM praises Cordarrelle Patterson

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 20:21:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has dedicated himself to becoming a better receiver, according to general manager Rick Spielman. "I think Cordarrelle has really grown up a lot," Spielman said. "I know what he has done this offseason dedicating himself to being the best receiver he can be, and how serious he is taking that, we're very excited about the future with Cordarrelle."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a huge disappointment last season, and he was basically a non-factor in the passing game for most of the year. Still, he possesses elite athleticism and speed, and he has the ability to turn any catch into a big play. Patterson is worth taking a chance on later in drafts just in case he realizes his potential in 2015.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson not being moved

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 09:40:38 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "No, no chance whatsoever," Zimmer said. "Cordarrelle is a young, emerging player who was with his third coordinator in three years. Quite frankly, we need to do a good job of figuring out how we can use him better and he needs to understand where he's supposed to be, the routes and everything."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson had a disappointing 2014 season with 384 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. Patterson should have a role in the offense next season but probably will not be a starter. Patterson could be an option in the later rounds of drafts, but owners should not count on him to be a consistent fantasy option.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 18:32:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is still working on mastering the routes in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has been one of the biggest fantasy busts this year, and it appears a lack of knowledge of the playbook could be a contributing factor to his struggles.
