    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has worked with the second team through the start of training camp, although head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, July 29, that he has seen some improvement from the wide receiver.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings still love Patterson's athleticism and game-breaking ability, but he remains raw as a receiver and that makes it difficult to find ways to get him the ball. He'll need to make some major strides in camp to be more than just a dynamic return man.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been working with the second-team offense, but offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects Patterson to carve out a role.

    Huddle Up: Patterson is working his way back up after his deeply disappointing 2014 (501 total yards, 2 total TDs) and is going to have to show some definite improvement -- starting with crisper route running -- to earn more touches on what's expected to be one of the league's most improved offenses. In other words, Patterson's fantasy stock remains low until we hear otherwise.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will be the primary kickoff returner this season, according to special teams coordinator Mike Priefer. Priefer said he considers Patterson to be the best kick returner in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: This is a plus for Patterson in leagues where you receive points for return yardage and scores, as well as for the Vikings' D/ST in leagues that lump all the special teams scoring in with team defenses. It remains to be seen, however, whether Patterson has improved his abilities as a wide receiver enough to warrant touches from scrimmage.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson once again has drawn praise from Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer -- this time for his route-running improvements. Patterson has worked extensively this offseason to become a better receiver from a technical standpoint.

    Huddle Up: The rave reviews in May are one thing, but on-field fantasy production in the games that count is another and Patterson is going to have regain the trust of all the fantasy GMs he burned with last season's disappointing disaster.

  • Posted: 5/14/2015 2:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been impressive during offseason workouts, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'He's really done well,' Zimmer said. 'He's running routes good; he's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed with the things that he's done.'

    Huddle Up: Patterson was a 2014 fantasy dud by all measures -- falling off his previous season's marks in all three of the "T" metrics with his targets dipping from 77 to 67, his touches falling from 57 to 43 and his offensive TDs dropping from seven to two. He'll be available for cheap after last season's disaster and could be a true sleeper given that his main WR competition consists of Mike Wallace, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has dedicated himself to becoming a better receiver, according to general manager Rick Spielman. 'I think Cordarrelle has really grown up a lot,' Spielman said. 'I know what he has done this offseason dedicating himself to being the best receiver he can be, and how serious he is taking that, we're very excited about the future with Cordarrelle.'

    Huddle Up: The knock on Patterson coming out of college was that he was raw as a receiver, and that definitely showed during his sophomore season. If the Vikings aren't going to manufacture ways to get the ball into his hands he'll need to ramp up his receiver skills to carve out playing time. Patterson's improvement also impacts how early in the upcoming draft the Vikings might dip into the talented pool of pass-catchers.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'No, no chance whatsoever,' Zimmer said. 'Cordarrelle is a young, emerging player who was with his third coordinator in three years. Quite frankly, we need to do a good job of figuring out how we can use him better and he needs to understand where he's supposed to be, the routes and everything.'

    Huddle Up: Patterson was disappointing as a sophomore, and with the addition of Mike Wallace and emergence of Charles Johnson it might be tough to find him snaps in the regular offense. However, he remains a weapon in the return game and does possess physical gifts that, if the Vikings find a way to get the ball into his hands on a consistent basis, could propel him back to "future star" status.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot, knee) was active in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers, but he didn't play a snap on offense in the first half. He saw only a handful of snaps in the second half and was targeted just once. '(I) feel like I'm 100 percent,' Patterson said Sunday, Nov. 30. 'I feel like the coaches didn't feel like I was 100 percent, so they decided to hold me out. I respect them for that.' Head coach Mike Zimmer said Patterson missed practice time this week to attend the funeral of a family member, and his limited practice time factored into the decision.

    Huddle Up: Patterson has had a miserable season and was held without a catch on Sunday. He's no longer worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues.

    Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater and WR Cordarrelle Patterson continued to struggle on their deep connection in the Week 9 win over the Washington Redskins. Getting the ball into Patterson's hands has been a struggle ever since Bridgewater returned in Week 4. Patterson had only one catch on seven targets early in the game, and Bridgewater didn't throw his way again. Head coach Mike Zimmer admitted that their continues to be a disconnect with Bridgewater and Patterson on the field. Bridgewater has struggled on deep throws in general this year, ranking 20th in throws 20 yards and beyond.

    Huddle Up: There was renewed hope in Patterson following a season-high 6 catches for 86 yards in Week 8, but that quickly evaporated in this past Sunday's debacle. The bye this week could help straighten out some of the issues, but definitely don't keep holding on to Patterson if there are some more intriguing options on the waiver wire.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) is expected to practice all week, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Patterson caused a scare when he was seen wearing a walking boot earlier this week, but he'll be good to a go this weekend in a favorable matchup against the Washington secondary.

  • Posted: 10/27/2014 11:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) is out of his walking boot and is expected to be fine, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. He reportedly suffered a bruised foot during Sunday's OT win over the Bucs.

    Huddle Up: Good news for Patterson owners who saw the WR garner a season-high 12 targets and finish with 6 receptions for 86 yards -- both also season highs -- in the game. See what his activity level is in practice this week, but definitely expect him to play in Week 9 as of right now.

  • Posted: 10/13/2014 10:35am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) said Sunday, Oct. 12, that he still wasn't completely healthy during the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions. He was taken out at several different points Sunday when his injury was bothering him. He caught just two passes for 15 yards, and he had his first backfield carry since Week 1 which went for a loss of two yards. 'I don't feel like I'm 100 percent. I should be next week,' Patterson said. 'Just keep getting treatment, just keep grinding in treatment and do what it takes.'

    Huddle Up: There was plenty wrong with the Vikings' offense on Sunday, the least of which might have been Patterson's hip. At this point he's been a complete fantasy bust based on where he was likely drafted; you could view it as a buy-low opportunity if you think the Vikings will figure out how to get him the ball.

  • Posted: 10/10/2014 6:39pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and is probable for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Patterson should be fine health-wise, but the question remains his usage as he's had only 13 total touches (12 receptions, 1 rushing attempt) since Week 1.

  • Posted: 10/3/2014 10:55am ET

    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) said he wouldn't have left the game Thursday, Oct. 2, if it were a close game. He said he'll be fine for Week 6. He also said he wanted to be more involved in the offense after being targeted just four times in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Getting the ball to Patterson has been an issue for the Vikings, but the return of Teddy Bridgewater under center should help get CP back on track.

  • Posted: 10/2/2014 11:59pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) returned to the team's Week 5 game in the third quarter after leaving with a hip injury.

    Huddle Up: Yeah, Patterson got back in the game, but it proved to be little consolation for his fantasy owners as the WR was targeted only 4 times -- fifth on the team -- caught 2 passes for 8 yards and did not get a rushing attempt. Stunning and baffling, to say the least, especially on a night the Vikes were in desperate need of a play-maker. He now has only 13 touches in his last 4 games.

  • Posted: 9/8/2014 11:01am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson had a 67-yard touchdown run in the Week 1 game against the St. Louis Rams, and he finished with 102 yards on three carries while also snagging three passes for 26 yards.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings are using Patterson in much the same way they used to use Percy Harvin; perhaps Patterson's size advantage over Harvin will allow him to stay healthy, something Harvin has struggled to do.
