Patriot's wide receiver Aaron Dobson was a healthy scratch for the team's Week 3 win against the Raiders.
Fantasy Impact: It had looked like Dobson was in line to become the Pat's lead "X" receiver, but Bill Belichick seems to have other plans. Dobson is worth keeping an eye on, but holds no fantasy value for the time being.

Patriot's WR Aaron Dobson hauled in 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in his first appearance of the season.
Fantasy Impact: On a day where the Patriot's defense took control of the game with 4 interceptions and a blocked field goal for a touchdown, there were not a lot of opportunities for offensive production. Dobson has a lot of upside as the Patriot's go to "X" receiver, and is worth stashing.

Aaron Dobson was absent from the injury report, and was not active for the Patriots' Week 1 game against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: Although Dobson didn't appear on the injury report, it's likely he was still having some problems with his foot. When Dobson plays, he has upside as the Patriots' most talented "X" receiver.

Fantasy Impact: Dobson looked great, and demonstrated his deep-play ability. He'll likely begin the season battling Kenbrell Thomkins and Brandon LaFell for work, but his talents should separate him soon. He has late-round flier value.

Tonight was Aaron Dobson's first game action of the preseason, and he delivered exactly what the Patriots need: a big-bodied, physical receiver who can stretch the defense vertically. Dobson did not appear to have any issues pushing off his previously injured left foot, and finished with three catches for 57 yards with a 33-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. The touchdown catch was spectacular, with Dobson getting away from a hold by the receiver while making a leaping, falling reception into the end zone. It wasn't a perfect outing for Dobson, but no one expected it to be. He looked a little rusty while running an in-breaking route on an incomplete pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo at 7:58 in the first quarter, but tonight was a great first step for Dobson.

Fantasy Impact: The biggest question about Aaron Dobson this preseason was his health. Dobson alleviated those fears tonight with a strong game. The Patriots need him in the lineup for his playmaking abilities and he should see a fair amount of targets as the team uses him to stretch the field. If you are looking for a late round flyer on a wide receiver with upside, Dobson is worth a look.

Fantasy Impact: It looks like Dobson is healthy and ready to battle Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell for the Patriot's "deep threat" role. Dobson's talent should set him apart soon, and his #202 ADP could end up being a steal.

Fantasy Impact: It's not much, but Dobson continues to inch towards a full return following March 10 stress fracture surgery in his left foot. If Dobson can get healthy, he has a great shot at being the Patriot's primary deep threat this season.

Dobson will begin camp on the active/PUP list while he rehabs from foot surgery in March. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: Dobson sustained the injury in a Week 12 win against the Denver Broncos in 2013, and had previously been optimistic about starting camp healthy. His stay on the PUP list will likely be a short one, and if Dobson has the time to develop chemistry with Tom Brady during the spring, he'll have a great opportunity to emerge as the leading deep threat in New England.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues Owned in 35% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: When catching footballs in New England, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Rob Gronkowski is obviously the #1 target for Tom Brady. Julian Edelman stepped up last season as the main Wide Receiver for Brady. Danny Amendola, when healthy, is […]
