Vikings | Cordarelle Patterson to see extra packages?

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.
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.
