Patrick Patterson bounced back from a scoreless outing to notch 13 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal vs. Detroit on Tuesday.
Patterson did his damage in 27 minutes of action, making 4-of-8 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws. He was a solid value with a bigger offensive role during DeMar DeRozan's absence earlier this season, but at the moment he's just a low-end source of 3-pointers, rebounds and FG percentage.

Patrick Patterson said Raptors coaches want him to focus on rebounding the basketball.

"Coaches get on me about rebounding, they want me to rebound the ball," Patterson said. "They want me to go after every single ball whether it’s offense or defense, so those are really the only two things I’m focused on." Dwane Casey praised him after the game by saying he's one of the "best in the NBA at his defensive rotations." Patterson had eight rebounds in Sunday's win over the Knicks, but he went scoreless on 0-for-3 from the field. Simply put, you should be able to do better.

Patrick Patterson scored just six points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Tyler Hansbrough (three points, five boards, 27 minutes) stepped into Jonas Valanciunas' (wife/baby) role and the duo of Amir Johnson (13 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, 25 minutes) didn't benefit as they stayed within the bucket of PF minutes tonight. Both Patterson and Johnson flirt with late-round value but aren't must-own players.

Patrick Patterson missed all three shots from the field against the Hornets on Friday with five rebounds, two assists and one block.

He played 27 minutes, so just three shots is a shocking outcome. Patterson's output has come to a screeching halt after putting another goose egg on Wednesday. He will likely have a few good games, but Patterson hasn't put together a good string of games in a little while. He's not quite worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 6 - 11:05 PM

Patrick Patterson scored 15 points against the 76ers on Monday during a 114-103 win with four rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

The second unit is now a lot thinner with Greivis Vasquez moving into the starting lineup. James Johnson has to play more at small forward, so there are plenty of minutes for Patterson now. He should be an under-the-radar winner from the Kyle Lowry injury and should have nice value in the next week or so.
Mar 2 - 11:08 PM

Patrick Patterson will move back to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Knicks, allowing Amir Johnson to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup.

Patterson scored just four points in a start against the Warriors on Friday, but head coach Dwane Casey probably needs his scoring punch off the bench. It's safe to leave Patterson on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:35 PM

Patrick Patterson started against the Warriors on Friday with four points, two rebounds and one turnover in 22 minutes.

This starting lineup usually crushes when it's on the court, but that wasn't the case tonight. Patterson's numbers probably won't change with the starters, but he'll obviously be better than this. He's more of a 14- and 16-team guy right now.
Feb 28 - 1:16 AM

Patrick Patterson will start over Amir Johnson on Friday.

It makes a lot of sense on offense to help space the floor for basically every other starter. Patterson's role shouldn't change too much and we're basically just going to see his minutes come next to different guys. Still, he has a nice upside and is worth a look in standard leagues in case he gets an extra 5-8 minutes tonight.
Feb 27 - 7:12 PM

Patrick Patterson returned from a sore left knee to finish Tuesday's road loss in Dallas with 12 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

He shot 5-of-11 from the field in 28 minutes of action and the knee injury doesn't seem likely to limit him going forward. Pat-Pat's steady contributions in 3-pointers (1.5), rebounds (5.3), steals (1.5) and blocks (0.7) have been enough for mid-round value over the past few months, especially since he shoots well from both the field and the FT line.
Feb 24 - 11:42 PM

Patrick Patterson (left knee sprain) will play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Patterson wasn't able to play on Monday against the Pelicans, but the fact that he is returning after just a one-game absence suggests that his injury is likely minor. With season averages of just 8.5 points, 5.5 boards and 1.4 3-pointers in 26.5 minutes per game, his value is limited to deeper leagues.
Feb 24 - 7:16 PM

Patrick Patterson (left knee sprain) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

He played his normal 24 minutes on Saturday, but didn't quite look like himself. Patterson should be considered questionable for Tuesday against the Mavs. Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas should get more minutes with Tyler Hansbrough playing a bit more. James Johnson should also get run at the four.
Feb 23 - 6:41 PM

Patrick Patterson (sprained knee) is questionable to play on Monday against the Pelicans.

If Patterson is forced to sit out, it would mean more minutes for the Johnson Bros* in Amir and James. Please note that these guys are not actually brothers, and that is just a nickname. Tyler Hansbrough could also see a small boost in minutes if Patterson is sidelined, but he's not worth fantasy consideration.

Patrick Patterson scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Patterson isn't flashy but he's doing just fine in fantasy leagues this season, returning top 50-75 value overall (9/8 cat) despite playing just 26.5 mpg.
Feb 21 - 12:58 AM

Patrick Patterson played 32 minutes against the Nets on Friday with 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

With Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) questionable for Saturday, there's a chance we see a little more of Patterson against the Wizards. He might come off the bench, but he should see a much larger role with the frontcourt rotation being depleted. Give him a look as a plug-and-plug or in DFS.
Jan 30 - 10:56 PM

Patrick Patterson quietly filled up the stat sheet vs. Indiana with 13 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 24 minutes off the bench.

He split minutes evenly with starter Amir Johnson (six points, four boards, two steals, two blocks), and that situation is unlikely to change unless one of them gets hurt. Pat-Pat is a borderline 12-team option if you're hunting 3-pointers and rebounds in a 9-cat league, but most owners can do better while the Raptors are at full strength.
