Aaron Dobson injury update: Patriots WR questionable for fantasy owners this week

Winslow Townson

The Patriots wide receiver was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Bengals. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson (neck) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Dobson injured his neck after being hit in the end zone during last Sunday night's win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy impact: In three games this season, Dobson has 11 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. He had just one catch for 10 yards on three targets before being knocked out of the game in Week 4.

Dobson wasn't necessarily expected to be a guy who would play regularly in the Patriots receiving corps. Injuries to the likes of Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola are the main reason Dobson has managed to get a look.

Considering all three players above are considered questionable for Week 5, it's going to take a heck of a performance from quarterback Tom Brady to ensure that the Patriots remain undefeated.

As is normally the case with the Patriots, Dobson will most likely be a game-time decision this coming Sunday. In fact, even if he is deemed healthy enough to go, his opportunity to produce anything substantial fantasy wise will depend largely on the health of the other receivers on the team's injury report.

Fantasy owners will need to stay up-to-date on injury reports right up until game time.
