Patton is the early favorite to win a starting receiver role, CSN Bay Area reports.
Patton hasn't done a whole lot in his three seasons with the 49ers, but he is the defacto favorite to win a starting role alongside Torrey Smith due to a crop of young and unproven receivers behind him. This is by no means a final decision and things could change when training camp opens and the preseason begins.
Quinton Patton finished the year with 394 yards and one touchdown.
Patton never broke out in 2015, but he saw expanded usage in the season's final four weeks. During that span, he averaged 14.4 yards per catch. Again, nothing he did screams "player to watch" heading into next season, but there could be an opportunity for the third-year wideout with veteran Anquan Boldin heading for free agency.
Quinton Patton turned his team-high nine targets into 46 yards on five catches in Sunday's loss to the Browns.
Surprisingly, Patton led the team in targets over veterans Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Despite the increase in targets, he still turned in a fairly pedestrian fantasy performance. As the third receiver in an inconsistent offense, Patton doesn't bring much to the table.
Quinton Patton hauled in two of his three targets for 38 yards and a touchdown.
Patton took advantage of Bruce Ellington (calf) being ruled out Sunday, which made him the de facto slot receiver. Even if Ellington isn't ready for Thursday's game against Seattle, the San Francisco 49ers ' air attack is too unpredictable to rely on their slot receiver in fantasy.
Quinton Patton (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Patton is coming off a two-catch, 53-yard effort in Week 4, but given that he's behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith in the San Francisco 49ers ' wideout pecking order, he's a speculative this week.
