Patterson rushed three times for 55 yards and a touchdown and hauled in his lone target for five yards during Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Chargers. Patterson provided the Raiders with their longest play of the day as he broke free for a 47-yard touchdown run on a sweep play in the fourth quarter. The speedster's versatility hasn't translated to much volume through the air, however, accumulating just 53 receiving yards on 10 catches through six games. He also continues to see significantly less offensive snaps than fellow wideouts Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts, further limiting his potential fantasy upside.
Patterson caught six passes on as many targets for 33 yards and rushed for two yards on one carry during Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Patterson's expanded role as a receiver was due in large part to Michael Crabtree's (chest) absence, while Patterson logged a season-high in offensive snaps (33) and doubled his previous season total of three receptions in just one game. He managed only 5.5 yards per catch, however, and his production figures to remain limited as the Raiders' No. 4 receiver upon Crabtree's eventual return.
Patterson caught one pass on two targets for seven yards to go along with two carries for five yards during Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Redskins. Patterson remains limited in the Raiders' passing game as fellow receivers Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts continue to see a heavier concentration of targets from quarterback Derek Carr. One of Patterson's two runs in Week 3 went for eight yards, but the other was shut down immediately as the Redskins tackled him behind the line of scrimmage for a loss of three. Oakland has another tough road matchup against the Broncos in Week 4, while Patterson's fantasy value will be limited based on his lack of touches.
Patterson racked up 57 yards and a touchdown on three carries to go along with one reception for six yards during Sunday's 45-20 victory over the Jets. Patterson has just two receptions on as many targets for eight yards through his first two games of the season, but he's also been involved in the Raiders' rushing attack as he notched his first touchdown on a 43-yard run Sunday. He hasn't been given enough touches to earn much fantasy attention, however, with so much competition for production among receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree along with a trio of running backs led by Marshawn Lynch. Patterson saw just seven less offensive snaps than No. 3 receiver Seth Roberts, though that may not have been the case if the game were closer down the stretch.
Patterson caught one pass for two yards on one target to go along with one rush for five yards during Sunday's win over the Titans. Patterson wasn't too involved in the Raiders' Week 1 offensive game plan, while No. 3 receiver Seth Roberts was on the field for 83 percent of the team's snaps compared to 33 percent for Patterson. The explosive free-agent newcomer made his mark on special teams, however, returning a fourth-quarter kickoff 41 yards to give the Raiders solid field position for what would be their final drive. If Oakland is able to build an early lead against the Jets in Week 2, Patterson could be in line for additional opportunities on offense, though Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts appear to be solidified at the top of the team's wideout depth chart.
