Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson hauled in five receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He also had four kickoff returns for a total of 111 yards, and he rushed six yards on one carry.
Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a fantasy dynamo in formats which also reward individual return yardage, but for those in standard leagues he was pretty good too. He is emerging as an impressive long-term keeper option, and imagine how good he could be with an NFL caliber quarterback throwing to him.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will start at wide receiver in place of WR Jerome Simpson.

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has not yet spelled out the plan publicly, but he has hinted this week that WR Cordarrelle Patterson could start Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Seattle Seahawks ahead of WR Jerome Simpson, who was charged with drunken driving. "They drafted me to play, not ride the bench every snap," Patterson said. "If I start, I start. If I don't, I don't. I'm behind a great guy in Jerome Simpson. Me and him compete with each other just to get better."

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson will likely play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks despite being charged with a third-degree driving while intoxicated. However, head coach Leslie Frazier won't say whether Simpson will start in the game. Simpson could also face further discipline for violating the terms of his probation following a September 2011 arrest for a drug-related offense. WR Cordarrelle Patterson could be involved more if the Vikes choose to limit Simpson's availability.
Fantasy Tip: Simpson is a very risky play this weekend and should be considered a flex option at best. Patterson's stock is rising in deeper leagues as WR depth, especially if Simpson is suspended at some point this season.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave indicated Friday, Nov. 1, that the team has packages in place for when WRs Cordarrelle Patterson and Jerome Simpson are on the field at the same time, and the club might want to expand that package. "We didn't get a lot of plays the other night. We need to stay on the field so we can call more than a couple dozen, excluding the two-minute the other night," Musgrave said. "We want to get into our game plan because we do have some packages that we're excited about...getting both those guys out on the field and letting them do their thing.
Fantasy Tip: Patterson has been seeing a rise in playing time, and he might emerge as a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option sooner rather than later. The only problem has been the black hole that is the Minnesota quarterback situation. Until there is stability there, the fantasy ceiling for Patterson and Simpson is a bit limited.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson had an end-around and a season-high six targets in the team's Week 7 loss to the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 21.
Fantasy Tip: He caught three of those six passes for just 22 yards, though. There is a glimmer of hope for Patterson, but until the quarterback situation improves in Minnesota, there's not much incentive to add him to your roster.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 15:07:33 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson played in only 19 of the team's 79 offensive snaps in Week 3.
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 05:50:40 -0700
The Minnesota Vikings plan to increase WR Cordarrelle Patterson's workload in the coming weeks. He has played just 11 snaps in the first two games.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 10:43:32 -0700
Minnesota Viking head coach Leslie Frazier said WR Cordarrelle Patterson is fully healthy and he only played five snaps in Week 1 due to a coach's decision.
Fri, 06 Sep 2013 13:15:39 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (back) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 6, and is probable for Week 1.
