Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Vikings
2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Selecting Patterson was a fatal mistake on draft day for Fantasy owners in 2014. His season totals were underwhelming (33 catches for 384 yards and two TDs plus 10 runs for 117 yards) rather than impactful as many experts expected. Patterson had his best game of the season in week one when he ran for 102 yards and a TD plus three catches for 26 yards. Over his next seven games, Cordarrelle only produced one more game of value (6/86). The Vikings deemed him worthless over the last seven games of the year (seven catches for 76 yards on 11 targets). Eventually, Charles Johnson passed him on the depth chart. Patterson's talent still has upside, but he has a lot to prove in 2015. His price point will be just about free on draft day (ADP - 189). He has big play ability with playable upside if he can regain the WR2 slot for the Vikings. I see him as a player to watch in training camp.
SCOUT Fantasy: The enigma known as Cordarrelle -- what happened last year and what can we expect this year?
Yotter: From a kickoff return perspective, I think Patterson will still be a dangerous weapon, but I question how much he will be used on offense unless Johnson or Wallace suffers an injury. I expect Patterson's snaps will be limited to about 15 per game, far from the 40-50 he was averaging in the first half of last season.
