    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.

    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.
