Cordarrelle Patterson (WR, MIN) – 5% Owned
After Adam Thielen went down Week 15 with a nasty neck injury, it was Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson who picked up the slack. Johnson caught all five of his targets for 50 yards while Patterson nabbed 5-of-8 targets for 49 yards. Neither has been worth a darn, even for the deep PPR type, as of late, though the slight nod goes to Johnson’s bigger share of the receiving yards pie. As of this writing, Thielen’s fate for Week 16 has yet-to-be-determined, but if he misses that game, both should see this bump in attention continue. With the NFL’s leader in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, the Packers, inviting the Vikings this weekend into the “Cheese Dome” (how I refer to Wisconsin as a whole), there’s no better time for these two enigmatic receivers to put up some quality numbers.
