Description: Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson had more serious surgery than though back in March which explains his slow recovery, according to Pats beat reporter Jeff Howe.
Insight: Dobson had surgery on his foot this offseason and was expected to be back for minicamp, but he's taken much longer than expected because he had a permanent screw inserted in the foot.
 
7/21/2014 8:54:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson will begin training camp on the active/PUP list, according to Field Yates of ESPN.
Insight: Dobson had surgery on his foot this offseason and was expected to be back for minicamp, but he's taken much longer than expected. He should be back before the end of the preseason. The 22-year-old has the potential to turn into New England's No. 1 receiver in his second season and he comes with an 11th-round ADP. No other New England receiver has Dobson's combination of size and speed.

Description: According to masslive.com, "there is now optimism" that Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot surgery) will be ready for the start of training camp.
Insight: Dobson had surgery on his foot this offseason and was expected to be back for minicamp, but he's taken much longer than expected. He would have had the surgery sooner but the team thought he would heal naturally. Dobson first suffered the injury in Week 12 last year, missed three games, aggravated the injury in the last regular season game and sat out until the AFC Championship. The 22-year-old has the potential to turn into New England's No. 1 receiver in his second season and he comes with a 12th-round ADP.

Description: New England wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot surgery in March) appears to be behind schedule, according to Nick Underhill of MassLive.com.
Insight: Dobson is likely to sit out the Patriots' next minicamp. He could still be ready for Week 1, but the second-year receiver will be behind the other wideouts who are working everyday.
 
1/19/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Aaron Dobson is in for the Patriots. Sunday's game against Denver will be Dobson's first in three weeks.
Insight: Dobson sat out last week because of a foot injury. The rookie was held without a catch in New England's last meeting with Denver back in Week 12.
 
1/13/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Aaron Dobson is questionable for the AFC Championship against Denver with an ongoing foot issue.
Insight: Dobson's injured foot still hasn't healed. New England will rely on receivers Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and running back Shane Vereen to anchor the passing game.
 
1/10/2014 8:48:00 PM
Description: The Patriots will be without wideout Aaron Dobson Saturday against Indianapolis.

1/7/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: New England rookie Aaron Dobson (foot) didn't practice Tuesday and is questionable for Saturday's AFC Divisional Playoff against Indianapolis, according to Patriots beat reporter Jeff Howe.
Insight: Dobson hasn't done a thing since Week 9 and won't be a factor even if he is active. Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman should to the heavy lifting with help from Kenbrell Thompkins and Austin Collie.
 
12/29/2013 7:10:00 PM
Description: New England rookie Aaron Dobson is done for the day after aggravating his foot injury in the first half of Sunday's game versus Buffalo.
Insight: Dobson had one catch for six yards before leaving. With the slippery conditions in New England today, head coach Bill Belichick probably would have been better off sitting Dobson this week. Dobson's status for the postseason remains a mystery.
 
12/21/2013 8:13:00 PM
Description: Patriots rookie wideouts Aaron Dobson (foot) traveled to Baltimore for Sunday's game and has a chance to play, according to Mike Reiss of espnboston.com. Rookie Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) already has been ruled out.
Insight: Dobson has missed three games with a foot injury. He stepped up as one of Tom Brady's top targets from Weeks 6-11, but he shouldn't be used as a fantasy option if he plays Sunday even with Rob Gronkowski out. His return would make Danny Amendola a riskier option, though.

Description: Patriots rookie wideouts Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins were back at practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Nick Underhill, MassLive.com
Insight: Dobson has missed three games with a foot injury while Thompkins has sat out the last two weeks with a hip ailment. New England could have used both players last week when Tom Brady struggled to find an open receiver on the final drive of the game. Look for the rookie duo to return Sunday at Baltimore.
 
12/14/2013 8:25:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) will not play Sunday against Miami.
Insight: Dobson hasn't played since leaving in Week 12 with a foot injury. He saw 7.6 targets per game in Weeks 6-11 but can safely be dropped in alll leagues.
 
12/14/2013 5:14:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.
Insight: Dobson hasn't played since leaving in Week 12 with a foot injury. He saw 7.6 targets per game in Weeks 6-11 but is too risky to use at this point, even with Rob Gronkowski out.
 
12/8/2013 12:02:00 PM
Description: New England wideout Aaron Dobson will miss his second straight game Sunday versus Cleveland.
Insight: He's still battling a foot injury. The Patriots are beginning to phase Dobson and rookie Kenbrell Thompkins out of the offense now that Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola are healthy again. Julian Edelman's emergence over the last few weeks hasn't helped Dobson either.
 
11/29/2013 4:25:00 PM
Description: Patriots rookie Aaron Dobson won't play Sunday at Houston.
Insight: Dobson sprained his foot in Week 12's win over Denver. Kenbrell Thompkins should see more snaps with Dobson out this week.
 
11/29/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: New England receiver Aaron Dobson missed another practice Friday because of a foot injury and fantasy owners should not expect to see him Sunday against Houston.
Insight: Dobson (35 catches, 492 yards, 4 TD) has put together a solid rookie season, but Tom Brady has his veteran weapons back and his fantasy value, even when healthy, has dropped significantly.
 
11/27/2013 4:02:00 PM
Description: Updating a previous report, New England receiver Aaron Dobson missed practice Wednesday because of a foot injury. SOURCE: Nick Underhill, MassLive.com
Insight: Dobson (35 catches, 492 yards, 4 TD) has put together a solid rookie season but with so many other receiving weapons at Tom Brady's disposal right now, he won't be a fantasy option even if he plays this week.
 
11/27/2013 1:16:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Aaron Dobson wasn't able to practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Boston Herald
Insight: As usual with New England, we won't know the extent of whatever injury he's dealing with until injury reports are released on Friday. Even then, we may not get a full diagnosis. Then again, if you're really that anxious to hear about Dobson's health status, your fantasy team may have taken a few wrong turns along the way. With all 32 teams in action this week, there are bound to be better options at wide receiver.
 
11/3/2013 7:56:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson exploded for 130 yards and two touchdowns on five catches in Week 9 against the Steelers.

9/12/2013 7:51:00 PM
Description: After missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, New England wideout Aaron Dobson will make his NFL debut Thursday against the Jets.
Insight: Dobson and Julian Edelman will share time on the outside with Josh Boyce and Matthew Slater splitting slot duty. Kenbrell Thompkins' poor outing in Week 1 has put him behind Dobson on the Patriots' depth chart.
