Tue, 20 Sep 2016 14:13:33 -0700

Free-agent WR Aaron Dobson (Patriots) is signing with the Detroit Lions Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Calvin Johnson gone, the Lions' wide receiver corps is still too crowded for Dobson to have much fantasy relevance. Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Anquan Boldin and Eric Ebron all figure to see more targets. Dobson can be left on the waiver wire for now.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 16:24:33 -0700

Free-agent WR Aaron Dobson (Patriots) worked out for the New York Jets Friday, Sept. 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson probably will have a wait a few weeks before finding another team and his fantasy value will be determined by his next team. He likely will only have value in deeper leagues if he signs in the near future.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson on the way out?

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 20:24:18 -0700

The New England Patriots have been shopping WR Aaron Dobson, and they might be ready to move on after what has been a frustrating run for him with the team. Injuries have set him back and kept him from achieving his full potential. Now, beat writer Ian Logue predicts if he does reach his potential it might be somewhere else.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson is not someone fantasy football players will want to bother with right now. He is in danger of losing his roster spot, and if he does make the 53-man roster he has a lot of work to do to re-gain fantasy relevance.

Patriots | New England shopping Aaron Dobson

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 12:46:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson is on the trading block.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson has obviously not impressed the Patriots enough to be kept. He probably won't have much fantasy value if he is traded and can be avoided in traditional leagues.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson, Keshawn Martin battling

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 21:49:50 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Aaron Dobson and Keshawn Martin are battling for the fifth receiver spot on the depth chart. Both are considered the leading candidates heading into the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Even the winner of this battle has very little fantasy appeal unless injuries strike Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman or the other receivers, opening up a bigger role for Dobson or Martin.

Patriots | Four WR spots set in New England

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:27:40 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are considered locks as the top four wide receivers. The team is expected to keep one or two more receivers from a list that includes WRs DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper, Devin Lucien, Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington. Dobson has reportedly looked good in training camp so far, but the fact he doesn't play special teams might hurt his chances. Martin received a $600K fantasy bonus in January, so he might be the favorite for the No. 5 job.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman and Amendola will be the top fantasy options, while Hogan and Mitchell are worth fliers in leagues with deeper rosters. The others have little to no fantasy appeal, although if injuries open up more prominent roles the No. 5 or 6 receivers could emerge later.

Patriots | Several Pats receivers on bubble

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 12:02:35 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson, Nate Washington and Chris Harper are all considered to be on the roster bubble by Paul Perillo of patriots.com. Perillo added that the mostly likely scenario is Martin, Dobson and Washington battling for one or two roster spots.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson and Martin probably have an edge for now, but none of them have much fantasy value as the Patriots' No. 5 wide receiver at best.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson placed on IR

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 13:53:32 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots' wide receiver corps takes another hit with Dobson done. Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Danny Amendola ($6,600, 13.2%), if Amendola is healthy enough, should be the Patriots' top two wideouts for the time being. Amendola has more value in PPR leagues for the rest of the season, but they don't have a good matchup this week against the Denver Broncos.

Patriots | Three NE WRs miss practice

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 13:40:04 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (foot), Danny Amendola (knee) and Aaron Dobson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are hurting at wide receiver right now; Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is really the only healthy starting receiver. Edelman will probably miss this week, but keep tabs on Amendola and Dobson as the week continues. LaFell isn't a bad play on FantasyScore either way, but especially if Amendola sits.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson should miss Week 12

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 14:20:48 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (ankle) is expected to miss at least Week 12 with an ankle injury, and possibly more time. Dobson's X-rays were negative, though.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) may see increased targets this week with Danny Amendola and Dobson both hurting, but he is going up against the vaunted Denver Broncos pass' defense, so invest at your own risk.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson's X-rays negative

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 12:14:23 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson's (ankle) X-rays came back negative, but the Patriots are waiting for more information from his MRI, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Just when Dobson's fantasy value is increased he suffers an injury that could sideline him. He's not guaranteed to miss this week, though, so track his status throughout the week.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson injures ankle

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 20:08:07 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23, and he is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: It's an unfortunate injury for Dobson, as he was in line to pick up plenty of targets with the Patriots banged up in the receiving corps.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson active Monday

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:12:22 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (back) is officially active for the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) probably will receive a bigger role in the passing game with Julian Edelman sidelined, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson questionable for Week 11

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 11:02:02 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (back) has been added to the injury report and is listed as questionable for the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Dobson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to play. Dobson probably will receive a bigger role with Julian Edelman sidelined but should not be a starting option even if he plays.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson bumped up depth chart

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 09:22:23 -0800

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was bumped up the depth chart one spot when WR Julian Edelman (foot) was injured in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson only had one catch for five yards in the Week 10 win over the New York Giants, and he has 12 grabs for 124 yards on the season. His playing time will surely increase in the foreseeable future with Edelman sidelined, and he could be a deep sleeper worth clicking in the right matchup in the near future on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Might Aaron Dobson be odd-man out?

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 19:07:37 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson might be in jeopardy of losing his spot on the 53-man roster whenever WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is healthy enough to return.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson has been a healthy scratch the past two weekends, sitting against Sunday night in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 05:50:58 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson tied a career-high with seven catches for 87 yards Sunday, Sept. 20, in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Tom Brady will continue to spread the ball around, but Dobson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be a flex consideration against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson being held out

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:46:10 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) believes he can participate in practice at this time, but the team is being cautious with his recovery.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson will be competing for a roster spot when he does return to the field. Dobson likely will see limited playing time if he does make the roster and probably will not be a great option for fantasy owners.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson in great shape

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 06:48:51 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson came into training camp in great shape, according to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Dobson "put himself into good position," Belichick said.

Fantasy Tip: Don't get too excited. Dobson has fleeting appeal and is best left for the waiver wire, especially after factoring in Tom Brady's suspension.

I'm getting more comfortable with the playbook." Dobson is competing with Brandon Gibson, Josh Boyce and Brian Tyms for roster spots this year.

Patriots | Bill Belichick refutes Aaron Dobson news

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 09:54:08 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson wasn't benched the last few games for mouthing off to an assistant coach, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "In my year and a half with Aaron Dobson , he has always been respectful to me and to the rest of the coaching staff. He has never once been argumentative or confrontational. The suggestion and reporting that his playing time was in any way the result of a 'loud disagreement' with a coach is completely false," Belichick said.

Fantasy Tip: Whether this leads to Dobson being active in Week 5 remains to be seen. Even if he is, he's unlikely to make much of an impact in the passing game against a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense on Sunday night.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson well down depth chart

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:39:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was on the inactive list for the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29, but he is a healthy scratch.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson was slowed by injury in the preseason, and he is well down the depth chart if he isn't active on game day. For now, do not bother with him for fantasy purposes.

Patriots | Kenbrell Thompkins active

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:50:19 -0700

New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins is active for the Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 21. WR Aaron Dobson is a healthy scratch for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is a bare-minimum flex option on FantasyScore this week. The offense spreads the ball around a lot, which makes him a potential diamond in the rough today. Keep in mind, though, that he is the fifth option at best.
