Description: San Francisco wideout Quinton Patton (foot) will make his first appearance since breaking his foot in Week 4 Monday against the Falcons. Mario Manningham (knee) is inactive.
Insight: The injury robbed the promising rookie of a chance to have fantasy relevance, as the 49ers were desperate for receivers earlier this season.

Description: San Francisco wideout Quinton Patton suffered a fractured foot Thursday against the Rams, according to SFGate.com.
Insight: Patton played often in the first quarter and was likely to assume a more prominent role in the offense going forward as the team's No. 2 receiver, but he'll miss an extended period of time. The rookie won't be placed on injured reserve, so he'll be back at some point.

Description: San Francisco wideout Quinton Patton got plenty of praise from his starting quarterback after Sunday night's game against Minnesota, according to Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com.
Insight: Colin Kaepernick said he knows how to get open and make plays. The 49ers are desperate for a guy like that at the receiver position after losing Michael Crabtree to an Achilles injury. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on Patton to watch how this combination develops.
