Athletic freak was 6th-leading rusher in W1 (102) - now MIN needs to concentrate on getting him more in the passing game (3/26)

Is this the year be breaks out, or will his breakout be next season?
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Amazing upside and if you want to gamble a bit then he is a player to draft in 2014.
He did terrible in yardage last year, but still found the end-zone 5 times. Expect a bounce back year this year as Bowe becomes more involved.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
To take him at current ADP is a leap of faith, but CP's raw ability is jaw-dropping.
Playoff game vs. Colts reminded us of his talent, but Alex Smith a limiting factor.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I think Patterson is as good of a breakout candidate as you will find in 2014. He finished the 2013 season with 45 receptions for 469 yards and four receiving touchdowns. The Vikings looked improved at quarterback and if that carries over into the regular season, watch out.
Bowe played better in the second half of the season and if QB Alex Smith can play like he did in the second half of the season, Bowe could return to fantasy prominence in 2014. Bowe has reportedly lost weight and is down to 212 lbs., which could make him a fantasy bargain this year.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Weak QBs and a run-first scheme could somewhat limit potential.
Was a total ghost until late in the year when Smith finally felt comfortable throwing downfield.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Insane athlete with massive upside in Norval's vertical offense.
Bowe still has the size and ball skills to be a factor. Chiefs need to try harder to get him the ball.

Legion Report
Since 2000, there have only been five 1,000 Yard Receivers in their Rookie Season. However, 27 Receivers have eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark in their sophomore campaign since 2000. Cordarrelle Patterson has an explosive shot at a great 2014 season with an offense led by Norv Turner. We love Patterson this season and recommend that you get on the bandwagon as well!
Bowe is down about 20 pounds this season due to a strict Offseason Diet which resulted from his “extremely hard training this year.” Bowe is set to turn 30 this season in an Offseason that restricts Bowe’s production with Alex Smith throwing him the ball. He remains a low end WR3 with a higher ceiling as he will remain a major Red Zone Target.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Averaged 72 total yards and a TD/game after use picked up in Week 11. New offense and a year under his belt should do wonders for the electric Viking.

Boom or bust every week. We're notably lower than most, but that's just because he figures to be very inconsistent, and there's no shortage of weapons in MIN with AP, Jennings, and Rudolph.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Expect Norv to coax WR2 value out of him; would be more comfortable drafting as WR3 or flex
Will push for WR2 numbers despite Alex Smith
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Patterson has the speed and elusiveness to do just about anything on the field. His upside is great, but his downside is as well. I'll fault on the side of upside with his talent.
 
  
Tom Schriner

Count on Patterson to get drafted as one of the preseason’s most trendy breakout candidates. That’s after he finished last season with 15 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns over his final four games. Patterson has a size/speed combo that is rare, and while he’s not the prototypical receiver you’ll find in new play-caller Norv Turner’s offense, there’s a pretty good shot he’ll play a ton and see a lot of targets. It’s aggressive but we see Patterson as a middle- to low-end No. 2 Fantasy receiver with even more value as a No.3 receiver if he falls to you.
Bowe had one of the worst years of his career in 2013 with 57 catches for 673 yards and 5 touchdowns. He reached double digits in standard Fantasy points just 5 times, and he looked nothing like a No. 1 receiver. Now, Bowe could easily rebound this year. He hired a nutritionist and a personal trainer for the first time in his career, and he’ll have another year in Reid’s system working with Smith. But Bowe has to prove himself first, and he enters this season as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best.
