Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson expects no issues with foot injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who suffered a bruised left foot Week 8, said Thursday he is 100 percent and expects no issues with the injury Week 9 against the Redskins, per the Pioneer Press. Patterson is coming off arguably his best game since the opener, totaling six catches for 86 yards in a 19-13 overtime win at Tampa Bay.

Vikes WR Cordarrelle Patterson to practice all week


by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(10/29/2014) Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson, who bruised his left ankle on a kickoff return Sunday, will practice all week, coach Mike Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Patterson will be fine for Week 9 against the Redskins.

Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson already out of walking boot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is no longer in a walking boot Monday after wearing one on his right foot/leg following Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Zimmer said Patterson has just a bruise and he is OK.

Patterson, who apparently suffered the injury on a kickoff return, said Sunday that he was "fine." Patterson had one of his best games of the season Week 8, totaling six catches for 86 yards in the 19-13 overtime win.


Cordarrelle Patterson gets involved again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) After a stretch of four games in which he caught no more than two passes for no more than 38 yards, Cordarrelle Patterson suddenly became the Vikings' go-to wide receiver Week 8 at Tampa Bay, making six grabs for 86 yards, both season-highs. His 12 targets were twice as many as any other Viking.

It was the role he was expected to play coming into the season, but with the change from Matt Cassel to Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback and the struggle to replace Adrian Peterson in the backfield, he kind of got lost in the shuffle. Neither Greg Jennings nor Jarius Wright has stood out enough in the receiving corps for him remain just a third wheel, though.

The Vikings offense is still a work in progress, and the catching staff may have come to realize it's better off giving Patterson a chance to make plays. It's too early to say how relevant he'll be the rest of the way, especially since his ankle seems to be at less than 100 percent, but if somebody cut him in your league, you may want to make a play for him.


Cordarrelle Patterson in walking boot but says he's fine


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson wore a walking boot on his right foot following his best game of the season Sunday at Tampa Bay. Patterson, who apparently suffered the injury on a kickoff return, insisted to the St. Paul Pioneer Press that "he's fine."

Cordarrelle Patterson flashes explosive ability


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Amid a disappointing and frustrating season, Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson showed his vast potential Week 8 at Tampa Bay. Patterson drew a game-high 12 targets and caught six passes for 86 yards, including this leaping sideline grab for 28 yards.

Patterson also had a 10-yard carry. After setting season highs in targets, catches and yards, Patterson will try to stay hot Week 9 against the Redskins.


Cordarrelle Patterson no longer on injury report


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Vikings second-year wideout Cordarrelle Patterson, who had dealt with a hip flexor strain since Week 5, is not listed on the team's injury report, according to 1500ESPN.com. Patterson has been a big disappointment, catching 19 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown in seven games.

Minnesota visits Tampa Bay on Sunday.


Prioritizing waiver-wire picks at wide receiver


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.

The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.

If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent). 


Touchdown doesn't change things for Cordarrelle Patterson


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson found the end zone for the first time since Week 1 Sunday, though that doesn't mean his Fantasy outlook has changed much.

The story in Week 7 remained the same as it has been for most of the season for Patterson, despite his touchdown. He scored on a 4-yard screen pass in the second quarter, one of just two receptions on the game for him. He had just 9 yards total in the game, and that isn't even his worst performance of the season.

Patterson has just 32 yards on six receptions over the last three games, and has been a total non-factor as a rusher as well. We entered the season with high hopes for Patterson, but he just hasn't looked up to it yet. At this point, Patterson is still best left at the end of your bench, just in case he does figure it out. 


Cordarrelle Patterson catches TD in Vikings' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson caught just two passes for nine yards but scored a touchdown in his team's 17-16 loss to the Bills in Week 7.

Patterson hauled in a pass near the line of scrimmage on first and goal and found the end zone for a four-yard score in the second quarter. He was held at bay aside from the scoring play, adding one more reception and also gaining three yards on a carry. Patterson has only managed two receptions in four straight games, and he has just 19 receptions and 213 receiving yards in seven games. His next chance at a breakout will come against the Buccaneers in Week 8.


Vikings list lengthy injury report for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) As expected, the Vikings have ruled tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) out for Week 7 at Buffalo. Other players ruled out on the final injury report were: linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring) and defensive end Corey Wootton (lower back).

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (elbow, ankle) and linebacker Chad Greenway (hand, rib) were deemed questionable, while cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (ankle), wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (hip), tight end Chase Ford (foot), safety Harrison Smith (ankle) and linebacker Michael Mauti (illness) were officially ruled probable for Sunday.

Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson does little Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson did little Week 6.

Patterson hauled in just two passes for 15 yards. He did receive a rushing attempt, but only gained 2 yards. Patterson appeared to be hindered by his hip injury. Though he was probable coming into the contest, Patterson may have aggravated the issue early. He spent a lot of time on the sideline while the offense was on the field, though the team never officially announced an injury for Patterson.

He'll look for more Week 7 against the Bills. 


Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson ready to roll Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson is good to go Week 6 against the Lions.

Patterson injured his hip Week 5 against the Packers, but was probable heading into Sunday's game. After being limited Wednesday and Thursday, Patterson was able to participate in a full practice Friday. 


Vikings fairly healthy as they prepare for Week 6 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Only three injured Vikings are possibilities to be inactive for the Sunday game against Detroit. Included is tight end Kyle Rudolph, who has already been ruled out with an abdomen issue.

The others are linebacker Chad Greenway, who is doubtful with a hand injury, and safety Harrison Smith (ankle), who is questionable.

There are several big games among the probables, which include running backs Jerick McKinnon (ankle) and Matt Asiata (groin), quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (ankle), linebacker Michael Mauti (foot), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (elbow) and wideout Cordarrelle Patterson (hip).


Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson still dealing with hip issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson was limited Thursday due to a hip injury.

Despite the issue, Patterson said he feels fine. He left Thursday's game due to a hip injury, and was limited to just two catches. Though his practice status has been less than optimal, Patterson has indicated that he'll play Week 6. 


Vikings want to get Cordarrelle Patterson the ball


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Vikings want to get wideout Cordarrelle Patterson more involved in the offense, according to 1500 ESPN.

Patterson scored on a rushing touchdown Week 1, but has been shut out in the team's last four contests. He admitted that he needs to get better in order to receive more work. I'm not at where I need to be," Patterson said. "There's always a bump in the road for everyone...I'm trying to work harder."

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said the team was "anxious" to get the ball in Patterson's hands more often, and said they would continue to try and make it happen. He added that Patterson needs to take advantages of situations were he's covered by one defender.

Patterson hasn't complained about his workload yet, but said he might have to if things continue. "In junior college, I was a drama queen," Patterson said. "I demanded the ball and it paid off for me. If things keep going like this, I may have to be that drama queen one time." 


Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson not ready to demand more touches


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson said he has not asked offensive coordinator Norv Turner for more touches on offense, according to The Star Tribune. Patterson has just 15 catches for 189 yards and four carries for 95 yards and one touchdown through five games.

"That's nothing I need to do," Patterson said. "I'm not a drama queen or anything. I don't want to go to the offensive coordinator and try to demand the ball. One day, maybe if I get a couple more Pro Bowls, maybe I can do thing like that; but the time is not right now. It's only my second year, and he's a new offensive coordinator for this team."


Cordarrelle Patterson further away than expected


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Thankfully, it looks like Cordarrelle Patterson's hip injury is not going to limit him moving forward. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean the Vikings' talented playmaker's future is any clearer now that we have an idea he is going to play in Week 6 against the Lions.

Patterson was always going to live and die by the big play, but that formula has not quite worked out for him so far. He scored once on three carries in Week 1, but has rushed the ball just once since, leaving him with just the passing game. At this point, Patterson is still developing as a receiver, and the team has opted not to lean too heavily on him yet.

Patterson has 15 receptions for 189 yards and no touchdowns through five games, and he expressed concern this week about his lack of touches. Hopefully more consistent play will come from the quarterback position if Teddy Bridgewater can get healthy, though Bridgewater has thrown just seven of his 50 passes to Patterson over seven quarters of play.

The Vikings will likely try to find more innovative ways to get Patterson involved in the offense, but it certainly seems as if he is just further along as a receiver than we thought at this point in his career. He probably still has too much upside to drop in most leagues, but Patterson needs to show something before you consider him a starter. 


Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson seeks more targets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson expressed frustration after the Thursday blowout at Green Bay about his lack of opportunity.

"I wish I had the answer," he told NFL.com. "I want to be more involved. I don't know what's going on. We have a plan. I trust coach (Norv) Turner and the whole staff with what they're doing. It's going to turn around. Hopefully I get more touches."

Patterson is actually ahead of his 2013 pace with 15 catches for 189 yards, but his production has slowed to a crawl with four receptions for 46 yards in the last two games combined. He has yet to score a touchdown this season.


Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson says he'll play Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson said he'll play Week 6 against the Lions, according to the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

Patterson left Thursday's game with a hip injury, but was able to return for a couple of plays. He was spotted riding a bike on the sideline without his helmet late, prompting some speculation that he may have re-injured himself. That wasn't the case, as Patterson admitted he sat due to the blowout. He told reporters he did not think his hip injury would keep him sidelined Week 6. Patterson finished with just two receptions for 8 yards. 


Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson comes up short Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had just two catches Thursday against the Packers.

Patterson finished with just 8 yards on the day. He had some injury issues in the third quarter. After hauling in a 6 yard pass, Patterson left the field limping. He was considered questionable to return due to a hip injury. Though Patterson was able to return on the next drive, he didn't see much playing time the rest of the night. It's unclear if his injury flared up, or if the team wanted to sit him during the blowout.

Patterson will look for more Week 6 against the Lions. 


Cordarrelle Patterson returns to action Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson returned to action Thursday against the Packers.

Patterson initially left after injuring his hip in the third quarter. He was able to return for the team's next drive, and only missed three offensive plays. Patterson has two receptions for 8 yards. 


Vikings Cordarrelle Patterson questionable to return Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Packers.

Patterson caught a 6 yard pass in the third quarter, and limped off the field. He was ruled questionable with a hip injury. Patterson had two receptions for 8 yards before leaving the contest. 


Steer clear of Vikings WR's Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Vikings' receiving corps has had to deal with two different quarterbacks over the last two weeks, and they may see a third if Teddy Bridgewater's ankle injury forces him to sit out Thursday's game against the Packers in Week 5.

Though Bridgewater threw the ball well in his first start, it was little-used third receiver Jarius Wright who saw the bulk of the bump. Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson, the team's more well established duo, combined for just five receptions. Even if Bridgewater does play Thursday, we just don't have enough information on how he likes to use his receivers to know whether Sunday's game is the start of a pattern or not.

We really need to see more from Bridgewater before we can determine how he and the coaching staff wants to use his receivers. With nothing in the way of must-start players among this trio, you probably want to avoid using them in Week 5. 


Cordarrelle Patterson makes minimal impact Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson didn't do much Week 4.

Patterson caught just two passes for 38 yards during the contest. He had a nice game returning kicks, picking up 86 yards on two returns, but that was it. After a strong Week 1 running the ball, Patterson did not have a carry during the game. 

Patterson will look for more Week 5 against the Packers.
