2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Aug-13-2013 by Rob Warner

Update (8/13): Patterson had a solid NFL preseason debut. He led the Vikings with four catches for 54 yards and added a 50-yard kick return on the first play of the game game. Patterson should push Jerome Simpson to the bench and secure a starting spot opposite Greg Jennings as Minnesota's starting X receiver.

The Vikings traded back into round 1 to select Patterson at #29 overall. He has ideal size (6-3, 205 pounds), but played just one year against D-1 competition after spending two years in junior college. CP set a University of Tennessee record with 1,858 all-purpose yards in 2012. Patterson is a dynamic kick returner and was the first player to score a touchdown four ways (receiving, rushing, kick return, punt return) in a single season since 2008. He tested very well at the combine, running a 4.42 forty with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. There is no denying his dynamic playmaking ability, but raw route running and limited D-1 experience could give the rookie some growing pains in his first NFL season. Although Patterson is running behind Jerome Simpson at the X position in OTAs - we fully expect he unseats Simpson early on, making him an intriguing late round flier (especially in dynasty leagues). His current ADP has him coming off the board in rounds 10/11 as the 45th WR selected.

17.06 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - With such a deep roster I was surprised to find Patterson still available this late. He is still a very raw receiver but with Percy Harvin gone and Greg Jennings not as good as he once was, Patterson should have several big games and could ultimately surprise everyone with his playmaking ability.

12.12 FantasyTaz - At this point I am just looking for pure upside. Patterson is raw and I don't love his QB, but he should have some solid games even as a rookie. The problem will be knowing when those weeks will come. I would rather take the chance that he flashes as a rookie then take a guy with very limited upside, just makes no sense to grab a player that has a very low ceiling as a WR5. Safe is not always smart.
