Patriots | Cordarrelle Patterson acquired by Pats

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 15:33:48 -0700

The Oakland Raiders are trading WR Cordarrelle Patterson to the New England Patriots, a source confirmed Sunday, March 18. It's uncertain what is headed back to the Raiders as compensation.

Fantasy Tip: He'll likely take over as the primary kick return man in Foxboro, although he could make a splash as a receiver working with Tom Brady as well. At this point, Patterson would only be worth a look as a deep sleeper in larger formats, but he is a player worth monitoring in training camp and the preseason.

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 16:38:02 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson showed some flashes weeks ago when Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree were both out, but since then, he's been someone to avoid, having recorded a whopping 22 yards combined over his last three games. He shouldn't be plugged in for any format.

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 12:25:10 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson probably will lose some targets with Amari Cooper expected back in the lineup. He has not been a big factor over the last few weeks and can be avoided in all leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson limited

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 15:40:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's fantasy ceiling is rather limited with Michael Crabtree doing his thing and Amari Cooper (ankle) potentially in the mix as well. If Cooper were inactive, Patterson would be a WR4 or flex option in deeper leagues. With Cooper active, Patterson is a low-end WR5.

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 16:53:11 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson probably will be able to play this week, but owners should keep an eye on the situation during the week. He has been targeted eight times over the last two games but has recorded only 15 total yards. Owners probably can find better options for their lineups.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson ready to play

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:20:31 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson probably will remain in the starting lineup for the time being with Amari Cooper still sidelined. He has been targeted 18 times over the last four games and has at least 72 yards in two of those games. He could be flex option in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson logs full practice

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 16:38:55 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was a full participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: After registering a season-high 97 receiving yards in Week 13, Patterson predictably crashed back down to earth this past week, being held to just eight yards on three catches in the loss at Kansas City. Even with Amari Cooper (ankle) likely out, Patterson will be a WR4 at best for this weekend's action.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson able to go full

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 16:41:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has a golden opportunity, as he could face the Cowboys and their 23rd-ranked pass defense while starting opposite Michael Crabtree. That's assuming Amari Cooper (ankle) is unable to make his way back after aggravating his injury last week. If he starts, Patterson is a nice WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson active for Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 09:04:17 -0800

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is likely to see fewer targets this week due to the return of WRs Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension and Amari Cooper from an ankle injury. That being said, Patterson still merits consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy formats versus a Kansas City secondary that will not have CB Marcus Peters (suspension) available.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson likely to play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:53:23 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see fewer targets this afternoon due to the return of WR Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension but he could be a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson limited in practice

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 13:56:58 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson had a golden opportunity last week with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper injured, and he showed he can still perform at a high level. However, Crabtree is due back on Sunday, and Cooper might be healthy enough to play, too. So Patterson's role will shrink, making him a risky fantasy play.

CB David Amerson (foot), DL Denico Autry (hand), WR Amari Cooper (ankle), FB Jamize Olawale (ankle) and WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) were all limited and each played is considered questionable.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson limited Thursday

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 15:37:02 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson appears to be on track to play in Week 14, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He likely would be in the starting lineup if Amari Cooper misses another game. He has recorded seven catches and 169 yards over the last two games and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson misses practice

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 17:41:44 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is coming off a game that saw him record a season high in receiving yards (97), while tying his season high in receptions (four), but he'll be off the radar if Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) returns to action. Even if Cooper doesn't play, Patterson won't be a reliable option with Michael Crabtree returning from suspension.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson posts 97 yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 20:21:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson was good for four receptions and 97 yards on his four targets in Week 13 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson had a golden opportunity to show what he could do with Amari Cooper sidelined due to concussion and Michael Crabtree suspended. Patterson could continue to have fantasy appeal if Cooper misses additional time, but the return of Crabtree in Week 14 limits Patterson's value to deeper formats again.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson will be in uniform

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 12:11:46 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson should have a big role in the passing game with Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper out of the lineup. He can be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup.

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 13:13:58 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson likely will be a starting receiver for the Raiders if he is active since Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper will not play. He is coming off a solid Week 12 performance and would have a favorable matchup this week. He could be at least a flex option in deeper leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson still limited in practice

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 15:51:46 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Patterson's best chance at capturing fantasy relevance, as Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) is likely sitting this weekend and Michael Crabtree is already out due to a suspension. As a result, Patterson is on the WR4 radar, but given his limited participation in practice this week, owners are better off rolling with Seth Roberts or Johnny Holton.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson does limited work

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 16:04:10 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, due to a hip ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has a golden opportunity with Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) banged up and uncertain for Week 13, and Michael Crabtree already suspended for the game against the Giants. He could be a one-shot WR4 or flex play in most fantasy formats, a big-time option in leagues also reward returning yardage, and a low-priced DFS steal.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson likely to play

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 05:25:43 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play in Week 12's game against the Denver Broncos, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is listed as questionable on the injury report due to a hip ailment suffered during practice Thursday, Nov. 23, but he will only be held out of the game if he suffers a late setback. He shouldn't be viewed as much more than an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy contests at this point.

Raiders | Big run for Cordarrelle Patterson

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 04:26:01 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson had 55 yards rushing in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he also had one catch for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Before you get excited, a word of caution. Patterson had a 47-yard run, so a good chunk of those yards came on one play. The team wants to get Patterson involved, but the results aren't perfect. Stay away until the Raiders can find a better role.

Raiders | More snaps for Cordarrelle Patterson?

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 20:15:12 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson could fill in for WR Michael Crabtree (chest) against the Denver Broncos in Week 4 if Crabtree is unable to play, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson wouldn't be worth starting in season-long formats if Crabtree sits, but with his big-play speed, the potential for added touches could make him a worth a roll of the dice in daily contests.

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson has played 66 snaps between offense and special teams through two games, lining up 46 times at receiver and four times at running back. "They put me at running back," Patterson said. "They have me at receiver. They have me everywhere. It feels good to be wanted."

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson making plays at WR

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:32:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been a "revelation" as a receiver thus far, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez, who indicated Patterson has displayed his playmaking ability throughout OTAs and minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is arguably the top kick returner in the NFL, but that explosiveness never translated on offense with the Vikings. If the light finally comes on for the former first-rounder, opportunities could abound with nobody locked in at receiver beyond Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Keep an eye on him this preseason.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson to see offensive snaps

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 15:02:00 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson will have a role in the offense next season, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson likely will be used when the team uses three- and four-receiver sets and could also see touches in the running game. He probably will not have a big role on offense and should not be more than a No. 5 receiver in deeper leagues.

Raiders | Oakland WR recruiting Adrian Peterson

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 19:26:43 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been trying to recruit free-agent RB Adrian Peterson via Twitter, telling Peterson to "join the dark side."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was teammates with Peterson in Minnesota, but as of now, there is no evidence that the Oakland front office is pursuing Peterson. Wherever Peterson plays in 2017, you can't expect him to be more than a low-end RB2.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson will sign with Raiders

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 20:41:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) will sign with the Oakland Raiders, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: That was a pretty quick turnaround after the soon-to-be 26-year-old had left Oakland's facility without a contract. In any event, a shift to the 12-4 Raiders and their rising offense could do wonders for Patterson's fantasy prospects. He's already a dynamic kickoff returner, and perhaps having Derek Carr throwing to him could help him build upon his career-high 52 catches from a season ago. He should be monitored throughout training camp.

Raiders | No deal from OAK for Cordarrelle Patterson

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 20:21:29 -0700

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) left his visit with the Oakland Raiders without a contract Monday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't mean he ultimately won't sign with the Raiders, but he is on record of saying that he would be interested in returning to Minnesota. While he is coming off a season in which he recorded a career-high 52 catches, Patterson still has more to prove if he wants to become a legitimate fantasy option. He's exhibited too much inconsistency to be drafted in most formats, but perhaps a new environment could change that.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson wants to re-sign

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 18:58:58 -0700

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) posted a series of messages on Snapchat Saturday, March 11, indicating that he wants to re-sign with the Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is capable of a big play whenever he touches the ball, but he needs an offensive coordinator that knows how to deploy him in a variety of ways. He will likely be a late-round lottery pick wherever he signs.

Bears | Chicago meets with Cordarrelle Patterson

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 14:16:21 -0800

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) recently met with the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson could have a decent role in the passing game if he decides to sign with the Bears but probably would be more of a returner for Chicago. Patterson has had some success as a receiver, but owners in most fantasy leagues can avoid him no matter where he signs.

Redskins | Cordarrelle Patterson visits Washsington

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 13:22:59 -0800

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) recently visited the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is one of the top kick returners in the league, but he would likely be little more than the same gadget offensive player for Minnesota in Washington following the Redskins' signing of Terrelle Pryor. He can be ignored in most leagues that do not count return yards.

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 13:21:27 -0800

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) is scheduled to meet with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson could compete for the No. 3 receiver job if he signs with the Raiders, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably will also be used as a returner no matter where he signs. Patterson could be a No. 5 fantasy receiver depending on his role.
