|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.
| Dobson optimistic he'll be ready for camp|
Stress fracture kept him sidelined during OTAs
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 9, 1:00 pm
|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.
| Pats WR Dobson doubtful for minicamp|
Underwent foot surgery in March
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 16, 4:25 pm
|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.
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.
