|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.

Kenbrell Thompkins expected to start

FF Today's Take: It sounds like Dobson (foot) is going to sit this one out. Expect Kenbrell Thompkins to replace him in the starting lineup. Thompkins will be a risky fantasy play as he will be competing for targets with Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, Shane Vereen and Julian Edelman.

Pats receiver out Wednesday and Thursday

FF Today's Take: Amendola suffered a concussion last week and appeared to be knocked out as lay motionless on the field. It would be a shock if he plays this weekend. Expect Kenbrell Thompkins, Julian Edelman and Aaron Dobson to be Brady's main targets on Sunday.
