Bridgewater: Team will 'find different ways' to get Cordarrelle Patterson the ball

ESPN - [Full Article]

Vikings beat writer Ben Goessling: Cordarrelle Patterson is continuing to develop as a receiver, coach Mike Zimmer said, even though he had only two catches last week and has seen his numbers lag as defenses pay more attention to him. But the Vikings could look to get Patterson involved again in the running game after giving him just one carry since Week 1. Patterson ran for a 50-yard touchdown when the Vikings last saw the Lions in December, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said the Vikings are "going to find different ways to get [Patterson] touches."

Fantasy Impact: 

The easiest way to get Patterson the ball is to hand it to him, which is something that the Vikings have (curiously) moved away from after Adrian Peterson left the team. We may see the Vikings revisit their Patterson strategy in Week 6, but we're in we'll-believe-it-when-we-see-it mode.
