Phillip Dorsett II
WR - DEN
Week 4 Outlook
Phillip Dorsett II has been elevated from the practice squad for Denver's matchup against the Raiders.
Dorsett signed with Denver's practice squad after being released ahead of the roster cutdown deadline, and now he's being elevated to the active roster for Sunday's game. He's unlikely to see a big role, however, and he almost certainly won't be fantasy relevant in the team's season opener.
Free agent wide receiver Phillip Dorsett plans to sign with the Broncos.
Dorsett was originally signed by the Raiders and was brought in to be a body at camp but there never really seemed to be the expectation that he'll make the team. The former first-round pick reunites with Russell Wilson from their Seattle stint together.
Phillip Dorsett II has been released by the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Raiders brought in Dorsett to be a body at camp, but there never really seemed to be the expectation that he'll make the team. He's going to be a free agent and will be eligible to sign anywhere ahead of the season kickoff in nine days.
According to Tashan Reed of The Athletic, WR Phillip Dorsett II went down with an injury during practice Wednesday, though he attempted to run it off afterward.
Dorsett signed with the Raiders in March after spending 2022 with the Houston Texans. With the Texans, he started four games and played on 50% of the team's snaps due to injuries at the WR position. Dorsett signed with the Raiders to give WR depth and bring an element of speed, as even at the age of 30 he still can show off his 4.33 40-yard dash. He'll be fighting for a roster spot and rotational snaps, though, as Keelan Cole Sr. and rookie Tre Tucker can occupy a similar role for Las Vegas.
According to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston, the Las Vegas Raiders have agreed on a deal with WR Phillip Dorsett II.
The Raiders add even more talent to the receiving room, bringing in the speedster Dorsett. Dorsett has played for five teams in his seven seasons and adds a sixth with the Raiders. Dorsett had 257 yards and one score in 2022 with the Texans.
