Cordarrelle Patterson does little for the Vikings Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson did little Week 12 against the Packers.

Patterson finished with two catches for 18 yards during the contest. He dealt with ankle and knee issues throughout the game. Patterson left twice due to injury, but was able to return both times.

The rest of the team's backup pass catchers failed to do much as well. Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 11 yards. Chase Ford had just one catch, but gained 13 yards. 

They'll look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.

Kyle Rudolph sees role growing in second game back
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Vikings eased tight end Kyle Rudolph back into action last week, but he got more involved in the offense in Week 12 against the Packers Sunday.

Rudolph went from zero targets in his first game back to five Sunday, and he ended up second on the team with three receptions for 50 yards, his best showing since Week 2. It will be interesting to see how his snap count usage went, however he was the only tight end on the roster who had more than 15 yards in the game.

That Rudolph would be worked back in slowly while working his way back from surgery is no surprise, but he should have a solid role moving forward. The Vikings need weapons for rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to throw to, so he might lean on Rudolph down the stretch. He is still available in half of CBSSports.com leagues, and might be a solid pick up right now.

Charles Johnson emerging in Vikings offense
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Through the first 10 weeks of the season, the Vikings rarely used second-year receiver Charles Johnson , however he put together his second solid game in a row in Week 12's 24-21 loss the Packers.

Coming off a six-catch, 87-yard performance, Johnson was once a again a huge part of the team's plans Sunday. Johnson was targeted a team-high 11 times in the game, and though he only caught three of those passes, he led the team with 52 yards receiving. Johnson also hauled in his first career touchdown, a 22-yard pass in the second quarter, giving him his first career double-digit Fantasy scoring day.

Johnson is a pretty unheralded player, so his recent breakout comes as a huge surprise. However, with Cordarrelle Patterson's inability to step up all season long, he is taking advantage of the opportunity given to him. He is at least worth a look on waivers in deeper leagues, if you need help at receiver, though it would be awfully tough to rely on him as a starter.

Jennings will look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.
