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 6'3Ē 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 TE Rob Gronkowski limited in practice
Aaron Dobson not listed on injury report
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 3, 5:42 pm

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots will head into their Week 1 at Miami with little injury concern, except for the All-Pro tight end who may or may not play. Rob Gronkowski, recovering from ACL surgery, was among four Patriots listed as limited participants in Wednesday's practice. On Monday, Gronkowski told reporters he'd be playing against the Dolphins, but on Tuesday Bill Belichick said "I'm glad Rob is optimistic, but in the end we'll have to make the decision that's best for the team." A key player who had missed preseason time, wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot), was not listed on the injury report. (

FFToday's Take: Those who drafted Rob Gronkowski knew he might be limited for the season opener and should already have a backup plan in place. Even if he continues to practice this week, he would likely be limited against the Dolphins. After missing a chunk of time, Aaron Dobson (foot) looks to be at full health and should be worked back into the offense right out of the gate. He remains a player to watch in all formats and is worth stashing in deep leagues.

Injury Dobson expected to make preseason debut
Recovering from foot injury

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 Dobsonís left foot to surgically repair a stress fracture March 10, and he didnít 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. ďItís doing better, man,Ē he said. ďItís getting better every day. Every week itís getting better, so weíre just going to see where itís at by the time camp starts.Ē (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.
