Aaron Dobson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Dobson (foot) is expected to make his preseason debut Thursday against the Giants, the Boston Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Since undergoing surgery in March to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, Dobson has been limited during camp. He did not begin practicing until Aug. 11, but has ramped up his activity of late and is evidently on track to see some playing time Thursday. Once he re-establishes his health/conditioning, Dobson should be on track to emerge as the Patriots' top outside receiver, over Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell. In that scenario, Dobson figures to represent a key downfield threat in the New England offense this season, while working in tandem with fellow wideouts Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.
Dobson (foot) did not suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, the Boston Globe reports.

Dobson (foot) had a permanent screw inserted into his left foot during his March surgery to repair a stress fracture, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dobson was previously reported to be progressing well in his recovery from surgery, but the latest news suggests the second-year wideout just began running this month. As such, Dobson is still building both comfort in his foot and his conditioning as well. Furthermore, given that stress fractures have a history of reoccurring, the Patriots will likely err on the side of caution with Dobson, who remains on New England's PUP list. At the moment, Dobson does not have a timetable for his return, but his foot should probably worry potential fantasy owners.

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.
