2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Aaron Dobson ended his rookie season with only 37 receptions for 519 yards and four touchdowns, but showed some deep ball skills that could lead to a very nice 2014 season. In Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dobson put up 130 yards and two scores. A foot injury in the next game caused him to miss the next four weeks halting any momentum he was establishing. At 6'3” and 200 pounds, Dobson is a big target, which is otherwise missing at the wide receiver position for the team. He underwent offseason foot surgery and missed OTAs, including valuable time with Tom Brady, but is expected to be healthy for camp and should open the season as a starting wide-out for the team. Dobson is a second-year breakout candidate as the only player on the team with his skill set. The former Marshall product features 4.4 speed with a big frame, the quickness to gain separation and the hands to make spectacular catches downfield.

Comment: Dobson (foot) has been placed on the Active/PUP list.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dobson expected to make preseason debut
Recovering from foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 28, 1:00 pm

New England Patriots
Wide receiver Aaron Dobson traveled with the Patriots to New Jersey and is expected to make his preseason debut tonight against the Giants, according to a source. Doctors inserted a screw into Dobson’s left foot to surgically repair a stress fracture March 10, and he didn’t begin practicing until Aug. 11. (Boston Herald)

FFToday's Take: Dobson is going to have to earn his playing time as Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell are ahead of him on the depth chart. Dobson has been injury-prone during his short career, missing five games in his rookie season with the same foot injury. He's worthy of a late-round flier in your redraft league.

Injury Aaron Dobson off PUP list, in full pads
Pats receiver recovering from foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 12, 5:00 pm

New England Patriots
WR Aaron Dobson was in full pads for today's practice. He was planting and cutting on either foot while running routes against air, but did not participate in team drills or in 1-on-1 drills against the Eagles defensive backs. (

FFToday's Take: Dobson is obviously not a full-go yet and there's no timetable for him to return to full contact. He's not worth speculating on in redraft leagues at this point until his injury status becomes clear.

Injury Dobson optimistic he'll be ready for camp
Stress fracture kept him sidelined during OTAs
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 9, 1:00 pm

New England Patriots
As for the injury itself, Aaron Dobson remains optimistic with the start of training camp looming on July 24. “It’s doing better, man,” he said. “It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts.” (Boston Herald)

FFToday's Take: The Patriots are known for keeping injuries close to the vest so we'll have to wait and see how much Dobson is participating once camp begins. He's got WR3 upside in the Patriots offense if he can manage to stay healthy but his injury risk will have far down fantasy rankings this summer.

Injury Pats WR Dobson doubtful for minicamp
Underwent foot surgery in March
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 16, 4:25 pm

New England Patriots
Perhaps there will be a surprise appearance at minicamp Tuesday, but it currently does not look like Aaron Dobson will be taking part in practices this week. Dobson, who is recovering from March foot surgery and did not take part in organized team activities, is said to be doubtful for this week’s mandatory minicamp, according to a source. (Mass Live)

FFToday's Take: The original timetable following the procedure was 2-3 months. The wide receiver delayed the surgery to March because there was hope his foot could heal without surgery. Dobson is no longer wearing a walking boot and is said to be “doing better.” The second-year man out of Marshall has the ability to ascend into fantasy WR3 territory this season, but his recurring foot issues present a potentially significant roadblock.
