Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson scored his first touchdown since Week 1.
Insight: That should be an encouraging sign, but since he still only received three touches and four targets, we are pretty much done with dealing with the headache that comes with Patterson. He is a tremendous talent, but the Vikings do not seem to care to feed him the ball.

Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had only two catches for 16 yards Sunday against Detroit.
Insight: Everyone's favorite breakout candidate has failed to deliver. Patterson has zero receiving touchdowns on the season, and with so much uncertainty in Minnesota, owners need to consider benching him, until we see production.

Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson could not duplicate his performance from Week 1, against the Patriots.
Insight: He did lead the Vikings in receiving with four catches for 56 yards, but did not have any carries in Week 2. Patterson is one the top game-breakers in the NFL, so Minnesota needs to make sure he is heavily involved every week. With questions at the QB position, consider him a WR3 with WR2 upside.
