|The Patriots used a second-round draft pick to acquire Dobson and the 6’3″, 200-pound product out of Marshall will have an opportunity to open the season in the starting lineup. Possessed with solid speed, Dobson has the makeup to be a lead receiver, but the Patriots’ poor track record in developing receivers doesn't provide much assurance that he will have a productive career. Of course, given the lack of depth the team has at the position, Dobson figures to get a long look at some point in 2013. He is a decent prospect in dynasty leagues but waiver wire fodder in redraft formats, barring a strong showing in the preseason.
| WR Dobson to miss 2-3 months -- Tue Mar 11 7:00 am --|
Surgery to repair stress fracture
|Aaron Dobson will miss 2-3 months after undergoing surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot, a league source said Monday night. Dobson, the Patriotsí second-round pick in 2013, could miss valuable practice time with Brady and his teammates during organized team activities and minicamp, which begin in late April and conclude in mid-June.

FF Today's Take: Dobson originally suffered in the injury in Week 12 last season and finished the year with 37 catches, 519 yards and 4 touchdowns. He'll compete for a starting WR spot in 2014 provided he has no setbacks this Summer.
| Dobson, Thompkins limted Thursday -- Thu Jan 16 1:00 pm --|
Patriots receivers battling injuries

FF Today's Take: Thompkins suffered a concussion in last week's game and while he was limited in practice, his status for Sunday's game remains a question mark. Dobson (foot) returned to practice yesterday after a two-week absence. Both receivers won't be recommended fantasy plays in playoff or daily leagues.
