Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson says he will be a top-5 playmaker this season

Here is a story aimed directly at every fantasy owner out there. Cordarrelle Patterson @ceeflashpee84 is going to get you fantasy points this year. He said so.
The second-year player sat down with NFL Network's Akbar Gbajabiamila recently and was asked if he can be a top-five wide receiver this season. Patterson was unsure of that because of how often Minnesota uses him at positions other than wideout. When Gbajabiamila responded, "All I need is points," Patterson assured him that won't be a problem.
"Oh, you need points? I'm gonna get you points regardless," he said.
To answer the question, Patterson said he wants to be more than just a great wide receiver.
"I'm going to be a top-five playmaker," he said. "I'm a playmaker, I like to make plays. Like I tell them, just get the ball in my hands I feel like I'm special with it. I just like to do special things with the ball."

Fantasy Analysis:

By now, you know the deal with drafting Patterson since there has been so much written about him. He is one of the league's best big-play talents who can run and catch the ball. He is dynamite in open spaces, and once he is in front of you, it's game over. The negatives are that he is still a young, raw player with unproven/inconsistent quarterbacks, and we don't know how he will respond when put on the field for 50-60 plays per game as a team's top receiver. But it sounds like the Vikings plan to give him such an opportunity. That makes it extremely hard to ignore him in the first four or five rounds of a draft. For as high as most people, including myself, are on Patterson this season, he does have a boom-or-bust quality about him.
