Cordarrelle Patterson caught 1-of-2 targets for 39 yards in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.
Patterson's snaps fluctuated over the course of the year. At one point, he rose as high as the No. 2 receiver behind Stefon Diggs, but Adam Thielen quickly emerged to pass Patterson, while Charles Johnson also remained involved out wide. Patterson's 52 catches set a new season-high for him, and he turned them into 453 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also rushed for 43 yards and remained one of the league's best kick returners. Patterson is headed for free agency, but the Vikings may look to bring him back for his special teams prowess. Patterson is unlikely to ever emerge as a fantasy asset on offense. Jan 1 - 5:31 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 5-of-8 targets for 48 yards in the Vikings' Week 15 loss to the Colts.

Patterson's passing-game role had diminished lately, but he was forced into more action when Adam Thielen (neck) went down. Mainly a kick return specialist, Patterson is always an intriguing DFS correlation play along with the Vikings' defense, but he lacks bankable fantasy value in standard leagues.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 2-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Vikings' Week 13 loss to the Cowboys.

Patterson was called for offensive pass interference, and had a night to forget on special teams, the lowlight being a fourth quarter muff. Patterson simply isn't an effective player when he's doing anything other than returning kickoffs.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 5-of-5 targets for 15 yards in the Vikings' Week 12 loss to the Lions, adding a 22-yard rush.

It's difficult for a player as explosive as C-Patt to average three yards per catch, but here we are. Patterson's rush was impressive, but required a Manhattan Project-level of complexity to pull off. Despite becoming a bigger part of the Vikings' offense of late, Patterson has done little to create fantasy value.

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling raised the possibility of the Vikings re-signing impending free agent WR/KR Cordarrelle Patterson.

A new contract seemed highly unlikely after the Vikings declined his fifth-year option last May, but Patterson has earned back his role in the offense. While most of his 34 receptions have occurred around the line of scrimmage, Patterson has been more effective as a traditional receiver this season, and he showed he still has plenty of ability in the return game with a 104-yard kickoff return touchdown last week against the Cardinals. Patterson has done what he needed to do heading into free agency, which should make his market among the most interesting this spring.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 4-of-8 targets for 53 yards in the Vikings' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Patterson actually led the Vikings in targets in a game where Patrick Peterson was shadowed by Stefon Diggs and managed 37 yards. Although Patterson was his typically inefficient self in the passing game, he turned the tide with a 104-yard kickoff return score to begin the second half. Patterson will be a low-floor WR4 when the Vikings take on the Lions in Week 12.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 6-of-8 targets for 45 yards in the Vikings' Week 9 loss to the Lions.

Patterson made a number of plays close to the line of scrimmage, but his lowlight was a dropped touchdown pass in the back of the end zone in the second half. He also lined up wrong at one point, negating a first down gained by Jerick McKinnon on a perimeter run. Patterson is still playing a fantasy-viable role in the Vikings' offense, and his playmaking ability has never been in doubt. He'll be a low-end WR4/flex option against the Redskins in Week 10.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards in the Vikings' Week 8 loss to the Bears.

Patterson ran as the No. 3 receiver behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. He played 41-of-61 offensive snaps and didn't catch a pass until the second half. Patterson's snap rate has climbed to a fine clip, but there aren't a ton of balls to go around in this slowed-down, run-first offense that doesn't put up points. Patterson has talent, but he's merely a dart-throw WR3/4. He at least gets a favorable home matchup with the Lions in Week 9.

Cordarrelle Patterson (concussion) is active for Week 8 against the Bears.

He's expected to get the start opposite Stefon Diggs. After being a slow learner his first three seasons in the league, Patterson seems to finally be getting "it" as a fourth-year pro. His snaps and targets have all been on the rise over the past month. He's worth firing up as a WR3 against a weak secondary. Patterson also gets the added bonus of being Minnesota's return man.

Cordarrelle Patterson (concussion) is questionable for Monday night against the Bears.

Patterson has yet to complete the concussion protocol, but coach Mike Zimmer expects him to play. Patterson has been a surprisingly big part of the offense in recent weeks, but he is a risky WR3 bet.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects Cordarrelle Patterson (concussion) to play Monday night.

Patterson has yet to clear the concussion protocol, but he was able to get in a limited practice Saturday. Patterson has at least six targets in the last three games and has scored in two straight, but he might not clear the protocol officially until Monday. He is a risky WR3 bet this week.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 01:30:00 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson (concussion) returned to practice Saturday.

Patterson will likely be limited, but this work at least gives him a shot to play Monday night. He likely still has a few hurdles left to clear in the concussion protocol, however, and is a risky fantasy bet even when fully healthy. There are better options.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 12:23:00 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson (concussion) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's looking like a long shot for Monday night's game against the Bears. Adam Thielen would likely start opposite Stefon Diggs if Patterson can't get cleared in time. Patterson's potential absence would also open up targets for Kyle Rudolph.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 02:28:00 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson is in the league's concussion protocol.

He missed Thursday's practice, and is suddenly questionable for Monday's game against the Bears. Patterson has been a much bigger part of the offense in recent weeks, catching 16 passes over his past three games.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 04:16:00 PM

Cordarrelle Patterson caught all seven of his targets for 67 yards and a touchdown Week 7 against the Eagles.

Patterson's touchdown came deep into garbage time, but it was a nice post route and he held on through a big (and illegal) hit for the score. The touchdown was his second in as many games and he now has at least six targets in three straight. Still, he is mostly a screen and gadget player for an underwhelming passing offense. He is not worth using outside of deeper leagues.
