Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) ruled out for Week 6

New England Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett has been ruled out for Week 6 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Phillip Dorsett is dealing with a hamstring issue and is unable to be cleared on the short week. Preseason stud Jakobi Meyers is expected to get his first look at extended snaps, and makes for a strong waiver addition for those in deeper leagues. With 10 days to heal up before the Patriots Week 7 contest against the New York Jets, Dorsett should be kept on fantasy rosters.

Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) injury believed to be minor

Phillip Dorsett's hamstring injury isn't believed to be too serious.

Fantasy Impact

It doesn't sound as if Dorsett's injury is too serious, but will need a speedy recovery in order to play in Thursday's Week 6 contest against the Giants. Dorsett will remain involved in the Patriots offense as the team's clear No. 3 wideout. Keep an eye on his status before inactives are announced 90 minutes before kickoff Thursday 8:20 PM EST.

Phillip Dorsett not targeted in Week 5

Phillip Dorsett left the game with an injury and was not targeted in the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

Dorsett did not return to the game, but is still clearly the third receiver behind Julian Edelman. On a team that throws to James White a lot as well, Dorsett makes for a boom-bust WR4 at best. His upside makes him viable in DFS, but he's a highly risky option in traditional fantasy leagues.

Phillip Dorsett targeted nine times in win

Phillip Dorsett caught two of his nine targets for 10 yards and rushed once for nine yards in the Patriots' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Dorsett led the Patriots wideouts in targets and trailed just James White for the game. Better days are ahead for Dorsett, who has resumed a full-time starting role since the departure of Antonio Brown from the team. Dorsett is a risk-reward play as the team's WR3.

Phillip Dorsett back into end zone in Week 3

Phillip Dorsett rushed twice for 12 yards and caught six of his seven targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 3 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Dorsett now has a reliable role in the offense once again as the WR3. Dorsett is a weekly boom-bust play with definite upside but volatile target counts on a weekly basis.
