Quinton Patton caught 4-of-7 targets for 52 yards in the 49ers' Week 6 loss to the Bills.
It was Patton's best game since Week 1. Patton is a big part of the 49ers' offense, but that means very little from a fantasy perspective. He can be safely left on the waiver wire in all formats. Oct 16 - 5:54 PM

49ers WR Quinton Patton caught 1-of-4 targets for eight yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to Seattle.

He has descending yardage totals of 60, 25, and 8 through three games in a rudderless 49ers "passing game." Patton is entirely without fantasy value.
Sep 25 - 8:10 PM

Quinton Patton had three catches for 25 yards on six targets in Week 2.

The six targets were behind only Torrey Smith. Patton started in two wide sets, but was less involved this week. He can be dropped for higher upside options.
Sep 18 - 6:14 PM

Quinton Patton caught 5-of-5 targets for 60 yards in the 49ers' Week 1 win over the Rams.

Patton got the start opposite Torrey Smith and played in all two-wide sets, getting in on 78-of-82 offensive snaps. He was third on the team in targets, but made more with his than Torrey Smith (2-13 line on six targets). Patton had a 13-yard catch down the sideline late in the fourth quarter to help set up Vance McDonald's short touchdown just a couple plays later. Patton could have some WR5 value simply based on the voluminous nature of this offense under coach Chip Kelly. He won't be a recommended play next week at the Panthers.

49ers WR Quinton Patton "rushed" for a three-yard touchdown in Friday night's third preseason game.

He was targeted once in the passing game, but it fell incomplete. Patton's touchdown came on a swing pass following a 27-yard run by Carlos Hyde. The score was recorded as a rushing play because Blaine Gabbert's pass was complete behind the line. Patton has been more involved than both Bruce Ellington and Torrey Smith this preseason. That, of course, isn't saying much. Ellington keeps getting hurt and Smith has drawn one measly preseason target.

49ers WR Quinton Patton sees "opportunity" in coach Chip Kelly's offense.

"There’s a lot of opportunity out there with coach Kelly coming in with his offense, and the offense slinging the ball around," Patton said. "It’s more uptempo." A Rascal-bound octogenarian is more uptempo than the 49ers offense of recent memory, so Kelly's system represents a dramatic change for the skill players. The increase in tempo matched with what should be negative game scripts will create more opportunities for the passing game, but it is unlikely those go to Patton. The underwhelming 2013 fourth-rounder has 472 yards total through three seasons.

49ers WR Quinton Patton's right arm is in a cast and he isn't participating in voluntary workouts.

Patton's injury is currently unknown, but he's missing out on quality install time in new coach Chip Kelly's offense. With DeAndre Smelter and Dres Anderson now healthy, and CFL import Eric Rogers now in the fold, Patton won't be gifted the No. 3 receiver gig like he was last season. He's on the bubble.
Apr 29 - 10:36 AM

49ers WR Quinton Patton caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Bengals.

Patton is the 49ers' third receiver behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. He saw a bit more usage than normal on Sunday because Blaine Gabbert dropped back to pass a whopping 54 times in San Francisco's 24-14 loss.

Quinton Patton secured 3-of-5 targets for 70 yards in the 49ers' Week 9 win over the Falcons.

Patton corralled the 49ers' biggest passing play of Blaine Gabbert Day, securing a 41-yard connection and leading San Francisco in receiving yards. When Anquan Boldin (hamstring) is healthy, Patton is a reserve receiver along with Jerome Simpson behind starters Boldin and Torrey Smith.

Quinton Patton secured 2-of-3 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 6 win over Baltimore.

Good from 21 yards out, Patton's second-half TD was the first of his career. He is the Niners' third receiver behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith.

Quinton Patton secured 2-of-3 targets for six yards in Week 5 against the Giants.

Patton wasn’t limited despite coming off a concussion. He was outproduced by Bruce Ellington and lost some snaps in three-wide sets. An afterthought in the 49ers' offense, Patton doesn't have more than four catches in any game.

Sun, Oct 11, 2015 06:59:00 PM

Quinton Patton (questionable, concussion) is expected to play in Sunday night's Week 5 game against the Giants.

Patton didn't get in any team reps this week, but is expected to be cleared. Even with Vernon Davis sidelined, Patton isn't more than the No. 3 pass-game option.
Fri, Oct 9, 2015 07:27:00 PM
