  Jets | Quinton Patton released    Thu Jun 8, 09:49 PM

The New York Jets released WR Quinton Patton from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement Thursday, June 8.

Footballguys view: Patton was put on IR with an undisclosed injury a few days ago. When healthy, some team could be willing to take a chance on the acrobatic veteran.

  Jets | Two moves made by Jets    Mon Jun 5, 04:56 PM

New York Jets WR Quinton Patton (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, June 5. Free-agent WR Devin Street (Patriots) was signed in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Street made it about a month with the Patriots back in May. He'll be hard pressed to make the 53-man roster with the Jets.

  Jets | New York signs Quinton Patton    Thu Mar 23, 03:12 PM

Free-agent WR Quinton Patton (49ers) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets Thursday, March 23.

Footballguys view: What Patton will do for them, we're not sure. Aside from Eric Decker, the team has a bunch of young guys they are reportedly excited about. And then you have to consider the rocky quarterback situation. No, we don't think Patton will be much to talk about come the season.

  49ers | Quinton Patton undergoes surgery    Wed Dec 21, 02:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton (foot) underwent surgery Tuesday, Dec. 20, to repair his broken foot.

Footballguys view: Patton is heading into free agency in 2017. Even though he's coming off career-best numbers (37 catches for 408 yards) we can't imagine teams lined up around the block to sign him. In fact, a return to the 49ers may be the most likely scenario.

  49ers | Quinton Patton placed on IR    Wed Dec 21, 01:59 AM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton (foot) was officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 20.

Footballguys view: Patton is headed for free agency in 2017 after posting career-best numbers. He finishes with 37 catches for 408 yards. He looked like a decent fit in the Chip Kelly system, so perhaps the 49ers will bring him back for a good price.

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton was targeted nine times in the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals, but he was held to three grabs for 52 yards.

Footballguys view: Patton had a hard time against the secondary and continues to fall short of some of the expectations both his fantasy owners and the Niners had for him in preseason.

  49ers | Quinton Patton projected to start    Wed Aug 3, 11:22 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton is projected by beat writer Grant Cohn to start opposite WR Torrey Smith in Week 1. Cohn projects Patton to start all 16 games while hauling in 45 receptions.

Footballguys view: Patton has the advantage of being across from Torrey Smith, but we're not sure we'd trust him--or this offense--enough to invest heavily in him. Consider him for your bench as a WR6 or WR7 but make sure you have other options.

  49ers | WR corps inexperienced in San Fran    Thu Jul 21, 02:25 AM

San Francisco 49ers Torrey Smith is one of just three receivers with more than 40 career receptions heading into the 2016 season. WRs Jerome Simpson (150) and Quinton Patton (56) are the others. Simpson and Patton will be in the mix to serve as the No. 2 receiver opposite Smith.

Footballguys view: Things look foggy for the offense in San Francisco. Unless something shakes it up, there are certainly cracks in the passing offense, experience (or lack thereof) being one of them. Add in that Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick are San Andreas size flawed prospects at quarterback and this is a passing offense which seems like a disaster in the making. Smith is the only receiver we even kind of like and he's a WR4/WR5.

  49ers | Quinton Patton sees opportunity    Thu Jun 30, 12:41 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton sees a chance to prove his himself in a fresh offensive system with few established veterans and plenty of competition. 'There's a lot of opportunity out there with (Chip Kelly) coming in with his offense, and the offense slinging the ball around,' he said in a radio interview.

Footballguys view: Last year in the largest role of his pro career, Patton didn't do much and finished with 30 catches for 394 yards across 424 snaps. This season, we're not crazy about his fantasy upside as a potential starter across from Torrey Smith. The 49ers passing game is one we're not loading up on in our fantasy drafts, and you should follow suit.

  49ers | SF wideout jobs are wide open    Tue Jun 21, 01:15 AM

San Francisco 49ers WRs Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton and Jerome Simpson are in the mix for the starting job opposite WR Torrey Smith. WR Dres Anderson isn't expected to be consistent enough to shoulder the load, but he is also in the battle. WR DeAndrew White has plenty of size, but he is considered closer to the roster bubble than he is to being a regular contributor.

Footballguys view: This is a spot not many fantasy owners should be looking at. Only those in the deepest of deep leagues should be thinking about a second WR from the 49ers in 2016. Even Smith is a deeper option, sitting at WR54 (11.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  49ers | San Fran's starting receivers    Fri Jun 3, 11:48 AM

San Francisco 49ers WRs Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington would be the team's starting receivers if the season started today. Patton struggled with some dropped passes during practice Thursday, June 2.

Footballguys view: We're shocked by Patton's drops (sarcasm). This isn't an exciting trio for the 49ers, and fantasy owners should have much better options out there. Smith is the highest-rated fantasy WR out of the three, and he has a current ADP of WR56 (13.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  49ers | Quinton Patton given opportunity    Thu Aug 20, 12:00 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton is being given every opportunity to win the No. 3 receiver spot.

Footballguys view: Jerome Simpson's suspension and Bruce Ellington's injury have opened the door for Patton, who is somewhat limited as a receiver. The #3 in this offense isn't going to be fantasy relevant, so this only a note for deep dynasty players.

  49ers | Quinton Patton will have opportunity    Sat Jun 20, 01:32 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton has been flashy this offseason and will have a real opportunity to prove himself this year, according to wide receivers coach Ronald Curry.

Footballguys view: He's had a disappointing career up to this point with only six catches in two years. Patton had been buried on the depth chart and has only appeared in 10 games. He's a fine route-runner with the ability to gain separation after the break. Patton will compete with Bruce Ellington and Jerome Simpson for the team's WR3 job.

  49ers | Quinton Patton primed for breakout year?    Tue May 26, 06:04 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton is feeling much better this offseason than he has in previous seasons, largely because of working out with QB Colin Kaepernick this offseason. 'It's benefitted me knowing we're throwing the ball together and he's telling me what he's seeing and I'm telling him what I'm seeing, and just knowing where to be and when I need to be there,' Patton said.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick in 2013, we've been waiting for Patton to do something of note on the football field. He's got six catches for 78 yards with one fumble lost as a pro. Patton is going to compete with Jerome Simpson and Bruce Ellington for the 49ers WR3 job. Unless Kaepernick takes huge strides as a passer, we can't see Patton having much fantasy value--even if he wins the WR3 spot.

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton continues to work hard and prepare for his next chance. He served as the No. 3 receiver last season, but has tumbled down to No. 5 on the depth chart this season with more veterans on the roster. In addition, with WR Bruce Ellington working in the return game, and WR Kassim Osgood as a special-teams contributor, Patton is essentially the No. 7 wide receiver.

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James will be entering training camp as the leading candidate for the kick and punt return jobs. WR Bruce Ellington, WR Devon Wylie, WR Quinton Patton and CB Perrish Cox are expected to compete with James for the jobs.

Footballguys view: James has to do something to stand out in the league's most crowded backfield. He's buried on the depth chart behind Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and rookie Carlos Hyde (at least). James has little fantasy value--even in dynasty leagues.

  49ers | Quinton Patton stands out    Sat Jun 21, 10:41 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton stood out at the team's recent minicamp. "He looks good," WR Anquan Boldin said. "He's not hampered by the foot injury anymore. He's out there having fun, playing football. You can see he's a lot more comfortable now."

Footballguys view: With the trade for Stevie Johnson and the selection of Bruce Ellington in the 2014 NFL draft, Patton will have to stand out if he wants to earn any playing time in 2014. Patton is a fast receiver who can track passes over his shoulder on downfield routes.
