Patriots acquired KR/WR Cordarrelle Patterson and a 2018 sixth-round pick from the Raiders in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.
The Pats needed a kick returner to replace Dion Lewis, and Patterson has averaged over 28 yards per return in four of his five NFL seasons. He has five career return TDs. Patterson will likely struggle for wideout snaps outside of gadget-type plays in Foxboro behind Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, and Chris Hogan. Mar 18 - 6:38 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson caught his only target for four yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.

Patterson had enough big plays to get him to 430 yards from scrimmage on the season, but he topped 10 yards receiving just four times while finding the end zone just twice, both times on the ground. A better real-life asset than fantasy one, Patterson will not be worth drafting next summer unless something dramatically changes.

Cordarrelle Patterson hauled in all four of his targets for 97 yards in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Giants.

Oakland looked to get Patterson involved early, giving him an end around on the opening play of the second drive, hitting him on a screen the very next snap, and giving him a carry out of the backfield on the play after that. He only created eight yards on those three touches, but he had a big play left in the chamber. With the Giants within three points late in the third, Patterson went for 59 yards on a screen to help set up the game-sealing score. It is the second game with a big play in a row for Patterson, but he can be left on the wire with Michael Crabtree and perhaps Amari Cooper due back next week.

Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play Week 12 against the Broncos.

It is good news for the Raiders, but this does not move the fantasy needle. Patterson has 18 catches for 114 yards and 10 carries for 124 yards and two scores through 10 games.

Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is questionable for Week 12 against Denver.

It's notable with Johnny Holton (concussion) unlikely to play this week. Derek Carr will be forced to take more deep shots with Amari Cooper. Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts should also see increased targets.

Cordarrelle Patterson handled three carries for 55 yards and a touchdown while catching his only target for a gain of five yards Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

The All-Pro return man has only earned 20 touches across six games this season but made his presence felt Sunday by rushing for a 47-yard touchdown on an end-around in the fourth quarter. That put Oakland ahead 16-14 (Giorgio Tavecchio missed the extra point), though the Chargers would go on to win 17-16 on a last-second field goal by Nick Novak. Patterson is still primarily a special teamer and doesn’t need to be owned in fantasy.

Cordarrelle Patterson rushed three times for 57 yards and one touchdown, and caught one pass for six yards against the Jets in Week 2.

Most of that came when he lined up out of the backfield on a designed draw play from 43 yards out to get his first rushing TD since 2014. Patterson is more of a special teams guy with his five kick return scores in his career and most fantasy owners will remember his outstanding finish to his 2013 rookie season. Fantasy owners can ignore this one in most cases.

Raiders OC Todd Downing said he's "looking for ways to get (Cordarrelle Patterson) involved in the offense."

Seth Roberts was one of the NFL's least efficient third receivers last year, and Patterson could cut into his snaps. Patterson caught three touchdowns at Wednesday's minicamp practice. "He's a fun tool," said Downing. "He's a big, strong, physical, dynamic-with-the-ball-in-his-hands-type player, and we're excited to see what he can do for us." Patterson's primary role in Oakland is likely to remain on kickoff returns.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Cordarrelle Patterson will have a role on offense.

"Really excited about ‘CP.’ He’s a gifted athlete, once he touches the ball he can score from anywhere," Del Rio said. "He’s not just a special teams guy, we’re going to integrate him in our offense and I think he’s a dynamic playmaker." Patterson doesn't project for more than a gadget role behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, but is going to push Seth Roberts for sub-package targets. He should also see a few carries at running back.

Raiders signed WR/KR Cordarrelle Patterson, formerly of the Vikings, on a two-year contract.

The contract can reportedly be voided down to a one-year deal. Patterson looked to be headed out of his visit without a contract on Monday night, but he returned to the facility and the two sides quickly hammered out a deal. Likely to serve as the fourth receiver behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Seth Roberts, the landing spot is not great for Patterson's fantasy value, but he should be able to impact games for Oakland both as a gadget player and return man. Perhaps Patterson will push Roberts for targets in camp, but he can be ignored in fantasy drafts at this point.

Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports the Raiders and free agent Cordarrelle Patterson are "closing in on a deal."

Patterson reportedly left his visit without a contract, but Tafur reports he is back at the facility and the two sides are hammering out a deal. It sounds like something should be announced late tonight or tomorrow morning. With two established receivers at the top of the depth chart, Oakland could be a great fit for Patterson, who would be allowed to fill a gadget role and contribute on special teams.

Free agent Cordarrelle Patterson left his Raiders visit without a contract.

That doesn't mean the Raiders are out of the running, but Patterson will keep weighing his options. Considering Patterson has said he wants to remain with the Vikings, any other suitor will have to beat Minnesota's offer. Patterson is one of the best return men in the game.
Mon, Mar 13, 2017 09:23:00 PM

Free agent Cordarrelle Patterson says he wants to re-sign with the Vikings.

"All I am hearing is stay with the Vikings," said Patterson. "Trust me, I want to, but we all know business is business. So what you going to do, (GM) Rick (Spielman)." Patterson has yet to sign despite visiting with multiple teams. He would likely have to accept a team-friendly deal to return to Minnesota.

Free agent Cordarrelle Patterson visited the Bears.

The special teams extraordinaire has also visited the Redskins and Raiders. Patterson turns 26 years old in six days.
Sat, Mar 11, 2017 05:17:00 PM

Free agent Cordarrelle Patterson will visit the Raiders.

Patterson visited the Redskins on Friday, but they decided to go with Terrelle Pryor. Patterson's market has been quiet to this point, but he is one of the best return men in the league. Even with his lackluster track record on offense, that skill should land him a job soon.
