Patriots receivers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins continued to impress at Patriots training camp on Wednesday. The Boston Herald said Thompkins had a "noticeable" rapport with Tom Brady while Dobson has been able to "shine."
They are both rookies and most casual fans may have never heard of either guy. Dobson has a prototype feel at 6'3", 205 pounds and has a nice vertical leap. Thompkins has proven to be more of a possession guy at this early point, but as a 25-year-old rookie, it's hard to get on the bandwagon.
Fantasy impact: Aaron Dobson hasn't quite cracked the top of the depth chart and is currently behind Michael Jenkins for first-team reps. To be perfectly frank, that's not going to be the case for much longer. Dobson has been making plays and looks to be the best wide-receiver option in the red zone. The Marshall product should be drafted in all leagues since the Patriots score 500 points in a season like it's nothing and someone has to catch balls in their offense besides Danny Amendola and Shane Vereen. It won't be long before the cat is out of the bag and fantasy owners might have to use a pick around 100 to get him.
