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.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson healthy, more comfortable

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 11:05:42 -0700

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.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson ready to produce

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:17:35 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson wasn't surprised that he was a healthy inactive in Week 1, because he missed a lot of the offseason and preseason. However, he's now ready to produce if his number is called on game day. The team could use his size and downfield presence in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, but it's unknown if he'll be active. Dobson has gradually increased his workload and stamina since the offseason and surgery to fix a stress fracture in his foot March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson will cost you the minimum for receivers ($3,700; 7.4% of the cap) in Week 2. If he's in the lineup Sunday, he's worth consideration, but it's probably wise to hold off on him until we see something from him in a regular season game.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson a healthy scratch

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 16:17:01 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was a healthy inactive for Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. WRs Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell both had great training camps, and TE Tim Wright gives the team more options to run the ball in two-tight end sets. It means that the Patriots don't think Dobson has caught Thompkins or LaFell on the depth chart yet.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson inactive

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 17:00:36 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) was inactive for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson has been dealing with a foot issue, and it is becoming a bit of a concern. He has a chance to grab a piece of the receiving pie in New England, but his lack of playing time is giving others an opportunity to step up. Dobson might take a while to re-gain fantasy relevance at this rate.

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 17:05:10 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) was inactive for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson had screw inserted

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 08:17:25 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) underwent surgery March 10 to have a screw permanently implanted into his injured left foot. Dobson had a stress fracture fixed, and the initial prognosis of two to three months is now an overly optimistic timetable. He began running in July but has not showcased any change-of-direction work in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Cleary, this is not good news for Dobson's potential as a sneaky late-round flier pick. It is probably best to cross him off your list of lottery tickets for 2014, but remember follow his progression during the year. He could be a stash for very deep rosters or in leagues with IR spots. He may have late-season daily game appeal.

Patriots | Aaron Dobson working hard, staying patient

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:01:18 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) said Monday, July 8, he's doing what he can to be ready for training camp, whether he participates or not. Dobson said he's studying the playbook and continuing to watch film, among other things, in order to keep up with his teammates and be ready when the time comes.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots receiving corps is deceivingly crowded with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski at the forefront, not to mention Shane Vereen coming out of the backfield. Dobson is still learning and has yet to prove himself as a reliable fantasy option. If he can stay healthy, he's a sleeper option for 2014.
