2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Illini were a wreck once again in 2017, but underneath the rubble was an encouraging season put forth by Dorsey. A true freshman, Dorsey was second on the team in receiving with 22 grabs for 395 yards and three touchdowns. If those numbers don't jump off the page, remember the context. Illinois threw for a total 2,098 yards in 2017, which gives Dorsey a 19 percent yardage share -- an impressive mark for a frosh tight end. Read Past Outlooks
Going JuCo route

Dorsey committed Jan. 23 to Iowa Western Community College for the upcoming season, Isaac Trotter of 247Sports.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dorsey earned Big Ten Network All-Freshman team honors in 2017 after nabbing 22 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns for Illinois. Big things were expected from him in Year 2 in Champaign, but the tight end never saw a single look in the passing game. After being suspended last spring for a violation of team rules, Dorsey was withheld from the first three games of 2018 and proceeded to play limited snaps in two of the subsequent three contests before announcing in mid-October that he was leaving the program. By virtue of playing in four games or fewer, Dorsey should be able to take a redshirt for 2018 to give him three years of eligibility remaining as he heads to the junior-college program. Assuming Dorsey can stay on the straight and narrow during his time at Iowa Western, look for him to resurface at the FBS level in 2020.
