Awesome article. I, for one, am a believer that they're going to find a way to get Patterson pretty heavily. Especially if they have draft a rookie QB. What some people forget is that his fantasy prowess is magnified if your league rewards for return yds/TDs. While i dont count on that (or any sort of consistency) but I'm a sucker for guys with sky high ceilings, so long as the floor isn't 0. With Patterson, i think the floor will be high enough in 2014 for him to be a no brainer starter for your fantasy team capable of blowing the roof off any week. That's the type of talent i want at flex. 


If you're counting on him as your WR2, you may be disappointed. Can't live and die with a roster full of these guys, but they are by definition, game changers. It's going to be fun to watch and i'm glad i own him where it counts.

@Phorts Thanks for the nice words. I agree with most of that, but the problem lies in the fact that you're going to have to draft Patterson as your WR1 or WR2. Very little room for error once the summertime hype train takes off. And it will.

@cdcarter @Phorts  True. I was thinking in terms of Dynasty where people may have gotten a discount on him in drafts last year and he's not being counted on as a WR1/2 for their owners. Your point holds true in Dynasty Startups as well (Current ADP of 18 overall...bananas). I would not feel comfortable there. 


And like you said, hype train is just getting boarded.
