Patton had three receptions for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.
Patton was a non-factor in the passing game, just like the rest of the San Francisco receivers Sunday, despite the team playing from behind for three quarters of the game. The fourth-year wideout hasn't shown any semblance of consistency as a starter regardless of which quarterback has been under center. That being said, if there was any week that Patton could turn in a respectable fantasy performance, Week 9 could be that time against a porous New Orleans' defense. We wouldn't bet on it though.
Patton turned four catches into 52 yards in Sunday's 45-16 loss to Buffalo.
Patton saw a season-high seven targets with Colin Kaepernick taking the reigns of the 49ers' offense. While fellow wideout Torrey Smith's uptick in production may be more sustainable based on past history, Patton's was likely a result of game flow. That's not to say the 49ers won't fall behind big again this season, but Smith is the receiver whose stock rose the most with the quarterback change. Patton should remain off the fantasy radar in standard formats until we see some sort of consistency.
Patton secured both of his targets for 16 yards in Thursday's 33-21 loss to the Cardinals.
Patton was a distant secondary option on the night behind the likes of Jeremy Kerley, Carlos Hyde and Garrett Celek. The 26-year-old encouragingly received 11 looks over the first two games of the season, but has now seen his targets drop in each of the last three contests. With a diminishing role in the offense, despite the fact that he's one of the few wideout options on a fast-paced, aggressive air attack, Patton's fantasy value is currently reserved for only the deepest of leagues.
Patton was held to eight yards on one catch (four targets) in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
Patton has come back down to Earth over the past two weeks after posting a five-catch, 60-yard performance Week 1. Seattle's elite defense is partly to blame, but San Francisco's offense doesn't look potent enough to produce consistent fantasy options outside of star running back Carlos Hyde. Next week's opponent isn't as imposing as Carolina and Seattle, so Patton has a better chance at producing a more PPR-friendly stat line against the Cowboys, but we wouldn't recommend him outside of an emergency option or bye week fill-in.
Patton hauled in all five of his targets for 60 yards in Monday's win over Los Angeles.
While this wasn't a spectacular performance, it has to be considered a successful first start for Patton after only catching one pass in the preseason. Most of his catches went for short gains, but he did rip off a 35-yard reception on a short pass. There is some PPR intrigue here, but the 49ers look to be a ground and pound offense with a quarterback in Blaine Gabbert who will spread the ball around in passing situations.
