2017 Week 15 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)
Patterson was mostly an afterthought on offense, with just a pair of short targets. He was dropped for a loss on a reverse. Patterson had a 100-yard touchdown on a kick return called back due to holding.
2017 Week 14 vs KC (6 / 3 / 8 / 0 rec)
Patterson wasn't unable to get anything going. He played nearly half the snaps, all lined up as a traditional wide receiver. He grabbed a couple of short passes, but unlike in recent weeks was unable to generate any yardage after the catch.
2017 Week 13 vs NYG (4 / 4 / 97 / 0 rec, 2 / 1 / 0 rush)
The second drive of the game for the Raiders resulted in a three-and-out but highlighted the many ways they wanted to get the ball into Patterson's hands. First down, Patterson lined up at wide receiver and ran a reverse, that went for a short loss. Second down, he picked up a solid gain on a wide receiver screen. Third down, he lined up at running back next to Carr and took a shotgun handoff up the middle for a couple yards. Patterson was explosive after the catch, taking a quick screen for a gain of 15 yards. He also made the play of the game to setup the game-winning touchdown by taking a short catch and exploding down the sideline for a 59-yard gain before tripped up by his shoestrings inside the 10-yard line.
2017 Week 12 vs DEN (4 / 3 / 72 / 0 rec)
Patterson nearly caught a short touchdown but bobbled the ball and couldn't hold on. He was able to draw a pass interference penalty on the play, however. Paterson also made one of the plays of the game on a 54-yard reception that sealed the win for the Raiders. On 3rd-and-8 with just over two minutes left, he lined up in the slot against single coverage and ran a deep slant. Carr lofted it high, Patterson beat his man and was able to run under it. He then somehow broke lose from two tacklers to tack on another 20 yards to the gain.
2017 Week 7 vs KC (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Patterson's playing time was down (just 22% of the snaps) but he played well when given the opportunity. He made a one-handed grab despite tight coverage to move the chains on an early third down.
2017 Week 6 vs LAC (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 3 / 55 / 1 rush)
Patterson had another quiet day as a pass catcher but continues to look excellent in limited snaps as a running back and ran for a long touchdown on on end around when lined up at wide receiver. At running back, he took a 3rd-and-4 pitch for a 5-yard gain down the right sideline, running through an arm tackle attempt for the final two yards. He lowered his head and picked up 4 yards on a tough carry up the middle. The big play came in the fourth quarter. He lined up at receiver and took the handoff on an end around. He sped around the end and once he was in the open field, his elite kick-return skills showed as he cut past a cornerback and sprinted into the end zone for a 47-yard touchdown.
2017 Week 4 vs DEN (6 / 6 / 33 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
With Crabtree out, Patterson saw some extra snaps on offense. He was targeted exclusively as an underneath target and pulled in each of his targets, mostly for small gains. His longest game came on a quick comeback route from Manuel on which he was able to turn upfield and gain 11 yards. He lined up as a running back once early in the game. He took the shotgun handoff for a short gain off of right tackle.
2017 Week 3 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)
Patterson was again effective in his brief appearances at running back. He took his first carry off of right tackle for eight yards and again showed impressive power for a player who has spent nearly his entire career as a wide receiver.
2017 Week 2 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 3 / 57 / 1 rush)
Patterson continues to see plenty of snaps as the third wide receiver but hasn't made much of an impact when lined up outside. The most interesting development this week for the Raiders offense was the slightly expanded usage of Patterson as a running back. There are some intriguing similarities between Patterson and the Packers' Ty Montgomery. While Patterson may not have the route-running chops to be an impact receiver, he is certainly an above average pass catcher at the running back position. The 6'2, 220-pound Patterson has always run with impressive physicality. On a first-quarter run, he took a pitch from Carr down the right sideline and trucked a Jets safety, gaining seven yards. Patterson raced for a 43-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. He lined up next to Carr in shotgun formation on a 3rd-and-1. He took the handoff through a big hole up the middle and Patterson took it from there, making a Jets safety look silly with a cut in the open field to turn what would have been a solid gain into the long touchdown. Especially from a dynasty perspective, Patterson's potential transition to running back bears watching.
2017 Week 1 vs TEN (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
The Raiders were creative in getting Patterson a couple early touches. He rushed for five yards on an end around, showing his power by running through the first tackle attempt. Deep in the red zone, Patterson lined up in the backfield as a running back next to Carr and caught a short swing pass. He managed just two yards as the corner made a nice open field tackle. He didn't have a touch or target after the first quarter.
