Fantasy Football Week 2 Super Deep Sleeper: Quinton Patton

By Shaun P Kernahan

In week one, Colin Kaepernick connected with Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis a combined 19 times for 306 yards and three touchdowns in a San Francisco 49ers victory over the Green Bay Packers.

In week two, the 49ers will face division rival Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night at the loudest stadium in the NFL, CenturyLink Field up in Seattle.

The one thing Seattle can do better than any other team in the NFL is matchup against Boldin, and Davis, since the Seahawks have two of the bigger corners in the NFL.

This should open up the chance for a slot receiver to be a weapon for the 49ers.  Last season, smaller and quicker receivers had a lot of success against the Seahawks.  Wes Welker, Davone Bess, Titus Young, and Stevie Johnson all had 100+ yard games against the Seattle defense last year.

Right now, Quinton Patton is listed as the fourth wide receiver, but he projects as the best receiver against the Seattle defense.   Patton is a six-foot receiver and turned in a 4.01 20 yard shuttle time at the NFL Combine, or the same time as Tavon Austin, the most explosive and agile receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft.

While Patton did not get himself a single target on Sunday, it shouldn’t be of much concern, since the big receivers were consistently open for the 49ers, something not expected to happen this week.

Look for Patton to get himself as many as five catches for 60+ yards and a chance at breaking away on a cross over the middle for a long touchdown.

Patton is owned in 1.9 percent of ESPN leagues and 8 percent in Yahoo leagues.
