Aaron Dobson injury update: WR questionable for fantasy owners

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots wide receiver is listed as questionable and could miss Week 15. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) is listed as questionable and has an outside shot to suit up in the team's Week 15 game against the Miami Dolphins. Dobson did get in a practice on Friday, but that was his first one since injuring his foot three weeks ago.

Fantasy Impact: The best-case scenario for Dobson is likely a game-time decision. He's had a typically mixed rookie season thus far, with his best game coming in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he dropped a 5/130/2 line. Other than that outlier, Dobson hasn't topped 63 yards receiving in any game this year.

If active, Dobson will take on Miami's excellent secondary. If fellow rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) suits up, he would take on the team's X receiver duties in Dobson's potential absence. With elite tight end Rob Gronkowski now on IR, there are more targets to go around, which gives Dobson and Thompkins some more intrigue if they get onto the field.

This is a situation owners should look to avoid this week. Dobson would be just a low-end WR3 if he plays. The same holds true for Thompkins if Dobson is out.
