Last Call On Patrick Patterson

Patrick Patterson is not rebounding the ball particularly well but he is producing.

Analysis: Patrick Patterson is on a tear right now and he is still available in about half of fantasy leagues which will not last long at all. Patterson has three 20 point games over his last four contests and he’s averaging over thirty minutes per game in the last week. On his current five game streak he’s putting up 19.6 PPG, 5.0 RPG and he’s shooting 56% from the field. He’s also hitting over one three per game as his attempts from beyond the arc have increased dramatically this year.

Everyone is in love with Patterson now but it is rather disappointing that he is receiving so many minutes(29.7/g) yet he’s only averaging five rebounds per game. It’s just something you are going to have to live with from the power forward as the fantasy season moves along. He does pick up steals and blocks around a 0.5 per game clip, so he does contribute but not significantly in those areas. Keep in mind that Patterson is the hot power forward on the wire at the moment and he’s been playing great ball for over a week so many people are starting to catch on.
