2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Cordarrelle Patterson might be poised to take the biggest leap of any receiver in 2014. Oozing with talent and upside, he was electric every time he touched the ball, whether it was through the air, on the ground or in the return game (scoring 9 times). After being virtually ignored on offense for the first 10 weeks, Patterson emerged in Weeks 11-17, racking up 27 catches and 10 rushing attempts. He still suffered from inconsistency issues down the stretch, going over 35 yards receiving only once in the final 5 games. Hamstrung with a limited route tree , the Vikings gave Patterson 12 rushing attempts ( second-best among all wide receivers) to go along with numerous bubble screens. This late-season creativity hints at what's to come this year.

The Vikings' quarterback situation can only get better, and Norv Turner has a long history of developing big-play wide receivers. Look for Patterson to get involved in the offense through screens, quick hitches and slants, and deep sideline routes. The emphasis on getting him the ball means he could approach 80 catches and nearly double-digit touchdown totals (he led the team in red zone targets last season). Be wary though, as he will be limited by mediocre quarterback play and inexperience. Patterson is a hot name this offseason, so don't be tempted to overdraft him. He's going to suffer from streaky, inconsistent play but could ultimately put up WR2 numbers when it's all said and done.

Comment: Needs to become a better route runner in order to maximize fantasy potential.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury McKinnon misses practice, Asiata limited
Kyle Rudolph practices in full
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 26, 4:46 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Did not participate: TE Chase Ford (hamstring/foot), FS Harrison Smith (shoulder/ankle), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), RB Jerick McKinnon (low back) and DT Sharrif Floyd (knee). Limited participation: RB Matt Asiata (concussion), LT Matt Kalil (knee) and LB Anthony Barr (knee). Full participation: TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin), WR Jarius Wright (hamstring), WR Greg Jennings (rib) and RT Mike Harrison (ankle). (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: With Jerick McKinnon banged up, recent addition Ben Tate is likely to be worked into the rotation week 13. Until the backfield situation is worked out in Minnesota it is tough to trust any Viking running back for fantasy purposes.


OC: Vikings want to get Patterson more involved
Norv Turner "anxious" to get talented WR back in flow
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 9, 6:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Last week, Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson answered questions about his limited use in the offense by saying that he wasn’t going to lobby for more work because he trusted OC Norv Turner was doing the best things for the offense. Patterson joked that he may have to up the drama if things continue this way, but Turner repeated a familiar refrain of his own by saying that the team wanted to put the ball in Patterson’s hands more often. “We’ve gone in every week anxious to get him involved. We’re trying to,” Turner said. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: With Detroit's stingy pass defense coming to town this week, this game might not be the time for Patterson to get back on track. Still, it seems unlikely the supremely-talented second-year wideout will be a non-factor much longer, even if Minnesota has to manufacture touches for him to compensate for his raw route-running abilities.


Injury Cordarrelle Patterson limited in practice
Teddy Bridgewater practices in full
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 8, 4:57 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Limited in today’s practice for the Vikings were: WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (elbow). Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is on the injury report but had full participation. (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It appears Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is on track to start this weekend but he draws a tough matchup against the Lions. That's good news for Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) owners. Even though talented Vikings wideout has seen his fantasy value diminish in recent weeks he has a much better shot of producing with Bridgewater under center making him worthy of flex consideration for Week 6.
