Dobson (hamstring) is headed for injured reserve, the Boston Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dobson, who caught 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie last season, was slowed during the offseason by a foot issue and subsequently never got on track this year, recording just three catches for 38 yards in four games. Assuming he can re-prove his health in the coming months, Dobson should have a chance to compete for a key role in the Patriots' offense next season, but at this stage, the 2013 second-rounder has much to prove before resurfacing on the fantasy radar.
Dobson (hamstring) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

2015

2014

Last year’s second-round pick was hampered by a hamstring injury and a stress fracture in his foot, but he still managed 14.0 YPC and 7.2 YPT for a passing attack that was below average for much of the year. At 6-3, 200 and with 4.43 40 speed, Dobson is one of the two receivers on the team (the other being free-agent signee Brandon LaFell) with the size/speed combo to be a downfield and red-zone threat. (There are only so many eight-yard passes Tom Brady can throw to Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.) Moreover, Year 2 is when receivers typically break out, provided they’re healthy. To that end, Dobson had surgery to repair the fracture in March, and it cost him time in OTA’s and minicamps, but he is ready to go in advance of the season.

2013

With Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd gone, Danny Amendola now heads the Patriots' wideout corps. Beyond that, it's an open competition for looks. The 6-3 210-pound Dobson could make a fantasy splash as a rookie, if he is able to master the Patriots' playbook in short order. He's a big-bodied wideout with good hands, who should have an opportunity to contribute out of the gate working the perimeter, while also potentially emerging as a red-zone threat. To that end, Dobson will have to compete for looks with the likes of Kenbrell Thompkins, Julian Edelman and fellow rookie Josh Boyce.
