Vikings | Charles Johnson must earn roster spot

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:55:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson will need to earn his way onto the Vikings' roster this season, in the opinion of Matt Vensel of The Minneapolis Star Tribune. Johnson lost his starting spot to WR Stefon Diggs last season, and now he'll have to compete with rookie WR Laquon Treadwell and WR Cordarrelle Patterson. Johnson needs to prove himself even more after playing in just 23 games the last two seasons combined.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has plenty of work to do to regain his fantasy relevance. He could very well be Minnesota's No. 4 wide receiver when all is said and done, so don't draft him as more than a WR5.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson's option declined

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:32:17 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson's fifth-year option was declined by the Vikings Monday, May 2, according to a league source. Patterson caught only two passes in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has a ton of athletic ability, but it hasn't translated onto the field in the Vikings offense. After the Vikes spent a first-round pick on Laquon Treadwell, Patterson is pushed further down the depth chart. Patterson has contributed much more on special teams, and he isn't worth spending a late-round flier on in traditional fantasy drafts.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson likely in walk year

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 23:42:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is unlikely to have his fifth-year option picked up for 2017. He's set to make $1.389 million in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has virtually no fantasy value as he caught just two passes last season.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson focusing on routes

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 16:12:13 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is honing his route running this offseason with Steve Calhoun, a private quarterbacks and receivers coach based out of Orange County, California.

Fantasy Tip: Athletic ability and physical talent aren't in question with Patterson, and he found the end zone nine times as a rookie in 2013.. However, he received just two targets and two rushing attempts in 2015. At this point, he is nothing more than a wait-and-see project in the real and virtual game, and fantasy owners shouldn't make him a priority.

Vikings | GM still unsure of Cordarrelle Patterson

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 15:44:16 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is entering what general manager Rick Spielman is calling a telltale year. Spielman said there's still some evaluating that has to be done to determine what Patterson will provide in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has proven enough over the last two seasons to be a mainstay on fantasy league waiver wires. The Vikings aren't even that deep at wide receiver, yet Patterson hardly saw the field last season. Stay away from him.

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:45:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson did not receive any offensive snaps during the team's Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson appears to be a special teams only player at this point and should not be an option in any fantasy league.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson works with twos

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:12:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has worked with the second team through the start of training camp, although head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, July 29, that he has seen some improvement from the wide receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is clearly behind Charles Johnson and Mike Wallace on the depth chart, and he could be behind Jarius Wright as well. Right now he is only worth a speculative pick in the late rounds of standard fantasy leagues with 12 or more teams.

Vikings | Inconsistency for Cordarrelle Patterson

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:35:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson showed improved in organized team activities (OTAs), according to head coach Mike Zimmer, but the receiver has had consistency issues on the practice field which is holding him back. "He'll have really good days, and then he'll have some not-so-good days. Really, I think what he needs to do is just the consistency every single day and the consistency in studying, the consistency in getting extra help that he needs if he needs it, running the routes the same all the time and understanding that there's a lot of great athletes that don't make it in professional sports because they don't have the other intangibles," Zimmer said.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings have plenty of depth at receiver following the addition of Mike Wallace, as well as the emergence of Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright. So the team can afford to be patient. But fantasy owners likely won't want to take a chance on him until the very final rounds on draft day, because the potential is still there. Physically, he can be so good. Mentally, he still has a lot of work to do.
