49ers WR Quinton Patton's lone Week 17 target went for a 35-yard catch.
Patton ends his sophomore NFL season with just three catches. He played behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd. Patton was a fairly intriguing prospect coming out of Louisiana Tech for his route-running chops, but he will likely enter 2015 training camp on the roster bubble. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 08:09:00 PM

49ers declared WR Quinton Patton, OT Anthony Davis, NT Glenn Dorsey, CB Tramaine Brock, WR Bruce Ellington, QB Josh Johnson, and TE Vance McDonald inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Quinton Patton ran ahead of Stevie Johnson during the 49ers' third preseason game.

The No. 3 spot behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin appears to be a fluid situation, with Brandon Lloyd also in the mix. There's even been speculation that Johnson and his $3.65 million salary could be a surprise cut Saturday. Patton, a 2013 fourth-round pick, has one catch for 10 yards through 78 preseason snaps. Johnson has two catches for 11 yards on 36 snaps.

ESPN's Bill Williamson would be "shocked" if second-year WR Quinton Patton is not on the 49ers' final roster.

Patton is battling fourth-round pick Bruce Ellington for No. 4 wide receiver duties, but Williamson assures there is room on the roster for both players. After missing a large chunk of his rookie season with a broken foot, Patton is once again sidelined with a foot injury and uncertain for the start of training camp.

The Sacramento Bee reports 49ers WR Quinton Patton's (foot) CT scan came back clean.

This simply confirms Patton avoided fractures after injuring his foot Monday. An MRI may be next to see if Patton has any ligament damage. This is good news, however, after Patton missed a large portion of his rookie season with a broken foot. He's competing for No. 4 duties with fourth-round pick Bruce Ellington.

49ers WR Quinton Patton is awaiting CT scan results after injuring his foot in Monday's practice.

The injury is supposedly minor, but it's notable because Patton missed a huge chunk of his rookie season with a broken foot. Patton is competing with fourth-rounder Bruce Ellington for No. 4 duties after failing to make an impact in 2013. A serious injury would seriously dampen his 2014 fortunes.

Coach Jim Harbaugh didn't express confidence in Quinton Patton as his No. 3 receiver Wednesday.

The 49ers' actions during free agency should be a wake-up call for Patton. Despite having Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, they've reportedly been after just about every wideout available including Hakeem Nicks, Julian Edelman and DeSean Jackson. According to Harbs, the Niners need "a third guy who can get open and make plays. ... A playmaker. That’s what we're looking for."

The 49ers' organization reportedly views 2013 fourth-round pick Quinton Patton as a future starter at wide receiver.

Patton is unlikely to get that opportunity in 2014, but it could certainly happen in a season or two. Patton finished his rookie year with just three catches for 34 yards in six appearances. He has forward-thinking WR5 value in Dynasty leagues.

Quinton Patton caught one pass for two yards in San Francisco's NFC Championship Game loss to the Seahawks.

Combining the regular and postseason, Patton finishes his rookie year with all of five catches on seven targets. A darling of the pre-draft process, Patton's season was derailed by a broken foot that cost him the better part of three months. Patton made noise in the preseason, catching six passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Capable of playing both the slot and perimeter, Patton is a hold in Dynasty leagues. He'll get every opportunity to prove himself for the receiver-needy 49ers in 2014.
