Fantasy Football: Dynasty League Rookies Player Profile: Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson by Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad) [caption id="attachment_16264" align="alignleft" width="300"]photo courtesy of Don't sleep on Cordarrelle Patterson.[/caption]   WR Cordarrelle Patterson has the talent and the size (6-2, 216 pounds), but may be slightly undervalued on Fantasy Draft Day as a lot of focus has been put on the fact Patterson's college receiving stats last year are not that of what you would expect from a first round talent. Patterson had just one 100-yard receiving game and was not even in the top 10 amongst receivers in his own league. Those facts are true, but figure Patterson played just one year at the University of Tennessee and had to compete for targets on a team of talented wide receivers, and in an inconsistent quarterback. You also do not want to ignore the fact that Patterson had 25 rushes for around 300 yards and three touchdowns and in 28 returns he tallied 772 yards and two touchdowns. So, this is a player that is versatile and dangerous with the capability to make tacklers miss and any flaws he has fall under things that are easier to fix with experience, like route running technique and learning assignments, which could be helped along since Patterson landed on a team that as some veteran receiving talent on it, including the very talented Greg Jennings. Patterson is worth reaching for in Dynasty leagues, especially in leagues that count return yards and I rank him fourth just behind Tavon Austin, Le'Veon Bell, and Gio Benard in PPR formats.
