Patrick Patterson hit 6-of-8 shots and 4-of-5 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Saturday's 128-84 whooping of the Hawks.
DeMarre Carroll was back in action, but Jonas Valanciunas has been struggling for the last five games, and especially the last three. Meanwhile, Pat-Pat has been on a 3-point shooting blitz and is averaging 11.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 2.8 3-pointers on 56 percent shooting over his last five. He's still not a must-own fantasy player, but if he keeps up his recent pace, he may be worth grabbing if you need a big man who can shoot 3-pointers. Dec 3 - 11:40 PM

Patrick Patterson recorded his first double-double of the season on Wednesday with 14 points and 13 rebounds in 30 minutes off the Raptors' bench.

Patterson made 5-of-10 shots with four 3-pointers, and he chipped in one steal to round out perhaps his best line of the season. He's heating up after a very slow start to the season, and is worth owning in most leagues as a reliable 3-point shooter who can chip in rebounds and steals without hurting you in any category.
Nov 30 - 11:20 PM

Patrick Patterson led the Raptors' bench on Friday with 11 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes.

Patterson has double-digit points in three of his past four games, going a combined 11-of-22 from the field in those games, which is a great sign for Toronto. He's been getting open looks all year but they hadn't been falling (32.4 percent FGs, 27.3 percent from deep), and with his shot returning he's worth a look as a 3-point specialist.
Nov 25 - 10:38 PM

Patrick Patterson had five rebounds and four steals vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, but he scored just five points on 1-of-3 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs.

Patterson was coming off back-to-back games with double-digit scoring, but even he wasn't buying into the uptick. "Until I do this 15 games in a row, then there will be some satisfaction," he said. We can re-set the clock on that countdown, and Patterson remains little more than a 3-point specialist who won't hurt you in any category.
Nov 24 - 12:05 AM

Patrick Patterson played 36 minutes vs. the Clippers on Monday, scoring 14 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and three triples on 4-of-8 shooting.

The minutes were a season high and this was his second game in a row with double-digit points. Patterson was held to 1, 5 and 2 points in the three games prior to that, so that kind of inconsistency makes him tough to rely on outside of deeper leagues.
Nov 22 - 1:52 AM

Patrick Patterson made 4-of-7 shots with three 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes off the bench.

Patterson came in shooting just 25.8 percent on wide open 3-point attempts, a huge decline for the typically steady perimeter shooter. The Raptors are averaging 80.2 points per game outside of the paint this season, easily the most in the league, and improved efficiency from Patterson would increase that lead. He remains a viable low-end forward despite his early-season struggles.
Nov 21 - 12:48 AM

Patrick Patterson had just five points and four rebounds in 25 minutes on Wednesday, finishing 2-of-7 from the field and 1-of-3 from downtown.

Patterson came in shooting just 22 percent from deep even though, remarkably, 44 of his 45 attempts this season "have been either open or wide open." Rookie PF Pascal Siakam is growing in Dwane Casey's estimation daily, and it's hard to view Patterson as more than a cheap source of threes, boards and some defensive stats.
Nov 17 - 12:26 AM

Patrick Patterson had 13 points, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and zero turnovers in 33 minutes on Wednesday.

The veteran was part of an excellent bench effort that resulted in a combined 38 points on 16-of-28 shooting, helping Toronto erase an early deficit to win in Oklahoma City. Patterson has been disappointing this season but the minutes are there, and he's at least worth considering as a 3-point specialist.
Nov 9 - 11:09 PM

Patrick Patterson had 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes of action on Wednesday.

Minutes haven't been an issue for Patterson, who is logging 30.6 minutes in the absence of Jared Sullinger, but he's simply not producing much for fantasy owners. The Raptors came into this game averaging a league-low 3.7 three-pointers per game, on a combined 22.0 percent beyond the arc, so they could really use PatPat's perimeter game.
Nov 2 - 9:48 PM

Patrick Patterson played 34 minutes off the bench on Friday with five points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Cavs.

After not getting any center minutes in the opener, he was very busy in that role with the Cavs going smaller, as well. Patterson seems comfortable in a bench role and obviously will still get his minutes. He's going to have to get red hot to see enough shots to matter in most leagues.
Oct 28 - 9:52 PM

Patrick Patterson was quiet in 26 minutes on Wednesday, posting three points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

PatPat had been playing starter's minutes with Jared Sullinger (foot) on the shelf, but he was limited tonight with Jonas Valanciunas dominating and Pascal Siakam (22 minutes) faring well as a starter. If you own Patterson, don't expect more than a handful of 3-pointers and rebounds.
Oct 26 - 11:28 PM

Dwane Casey said that he currently views Patrick Patterson as the "leading candidate" to start sans Jared Sullinger (foot surgery).

While Casey tabbed Patterson as the leading candidate, he also acknowledged that he goes back and forth between starting Patterson or rookie Pascal Siakam based on the matchup, but either way Patterson figures to earn the bulk of the power forward minutes in Sullinger's absence. That being said, aside from hitting a few triples, Patterson rarely brings much else to the box score, so he's more of a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Oct 24 - 1:51 PM

Patrick Patterson was quiet in 20 bench minutes on Wednesday, chipping in three points on 1-of-5 shooting with two assists and one rebound.

Jared Sullinger (foot) wasn't active tonight, but it was Pascal Siakam who took his spot in the starting lineup. This was likely just an attempt to evaluate the rookie, while keeping Patterson in his usual reserve role, but it's another reminder that his outlook is bleak with Sullinger in Toronto.
Oct 19 - 10:08 PM

Patrick Patterson (rest) will not play on Friday.

We'll get to see a ton of Pascal Siakam at the four tonight. Patterson's role should be similar as a bench big man.
Oct 14 - 6:06 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey views Patrick Patterson as the team's "sixth starter."

Patterson did add he doesn't have a preference as a starter or bench guy, but he wants a big role. Jared Sullinger will get the first shot at the starting PF role, but it obviously sounds like Patterson will comfortably see minutes in the 20s. Patterson is playing for a new deal, but he's not a great fantasy target after averaging 6.9 points, 4.3 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.3 treys in 25.6 minutes per game last season.
