Cordarrelle Patterson dazzles in Patriots debut

Cordarrelle Patterson caught two passes for 38 yards in his first game with the Patriots, a win over the Washington Redskins in their preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Patterson made an impressive catch down the sideline in the fourth quarter. Patterson had to extend up high and was only able to deflect the ball to himself with a defender on his back, but he secured the catch. Patterson is most likely a special teams player, but if he is able to get on the field offensively, he has a ton of potential. Don't draft him, but keep an eye on him for now.

Cordarrelle Patterson a lock to make Patriots roster

When going over the ramifications of the Julian Edelman suspension and how it would affect the Patriots' receiving corps, ESPN's Mike Reiss wrote that WR Cordarrelle Patterson "is a lock to make the roster as the primary kickoff returner, and anything he adds on offense will be a bonus."

Fantasy Impact

Bill Belichick gave up a fifth-round pick to acquire Patterson and a sixth-rounder from Oakland primarily for his return skills but Patterson actually played 431 snaps on offense for the Raiders in 2017, catching 31 passes for 309 yards and rushing 13 times for 121 yards and a pair of scores. Patterson has some versatility and big-play ability and could be the latest veteran reclamation project that Belichick turns into an asset. We need to monitor how the Patriots approach the slot in the wake of Edelman's suspension. Patterson is a name to keep in mind when training camp begins in July.

Cordarrelle Patterson catches one pass in loss to Chargers

Cordarrelle Patterson caught his only target for four yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Patterson has big-play potential anytime he steps on the field with his speed. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old wide receiver does not provide enough stats to be worth owning in fantasy with just 31 catches on the season.

Cordarrelle Patterson catches one pass in loss to Dallas

Cordarrelle Patterson caught one pass on two targets for seven yards as the Raiders lost to the Cowboys on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

It looked like Patterson could have a big night with Amari Cooper out with injury. But the 26-year-old wide receiver was held to one catch the whole game. Patterson has big-play ability but does not see enough targets to be worth owning in fantasy.

Cordarrelle Patterson catches three passes in Week 14

Cordarrelle Patterson caught three of six targets for just eight yards as the Raiders lost to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Patterson has been dealing with a hip issue but looked healthy on Sunday. Unfortunately, he could not get any of his big-play abilities going and was held to less than three yards a catch. Patterson is not consistent enough to be trusted in fantasy.
