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
AP, Patterson eyeing new roles for Vikings
OC Norv Turner intent on utilizing unique weapons
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 17, 4:55 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adrian Peterson has a new offensive coordinator (Norv Turner) who is intent on using him differently. Peterson will be more involved in the Vikings' passing game as Turner and Zimmer seek to convert some of his carries into receptions, giving him more room to work in the open field and making him less likely to take a pounding. Turner also has big plans for second-year WR Cordarrelle Patterson, who played mostly at split end last season. He moved to different spots during the Vikings' offseason program and Turner seems interested in getting the explosive receiver the ball as much as he can. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Peterson is a solid bet to top his career high in receptions (43 in 2009) while critics of a potential Patterson breakout need only look what Turner did for another gifted "raw" receiver last year in Josh Gordon. The Vikings could be a sleeping giant in terms of fantasy-point production and Minnesota is a place where owners need to look as they attempt to find sneaky fantasy value this season.


Patterson to be featured in Vikings' offense
Greg Jennings mentoring young receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 23, 8:00 am

Minnesota Vikings
Greg Jennings, who had already been in town and had sat down with Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, quickly got a sense of how prominently Cordarrelle Patterson would be featured in the Vikings' offense. A year after Patterson put a spark into the Vikings' offense despite a role that even Jennings believed needed to be bigger, there seems to be little doubt about how much the Vikings will use Patterson this season. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Patterson is No. 18 in my wide receiver rankings which may be a bit optimistic considering rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater may play significant time this season. However, Norv Turner's offense should lead to a significant amount of targets for the lead receiver, making the highly-talented Patterson a high upside pick in 2014.
