News: Dobson (foot) caught three passes for 57 yards, including a 33-yard TD, in Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants. Impact: More importantly, the Boston Globe suggests that Dobson did not appear to have any issues pushing off his previously balky left foot. Assuming he can stay healthy, the second-year wideout brings fantasy upside to the table, given his potential to emerge as a key downfield threat in the Patriots' offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Dobson (foot) is expected to make his preseason debut Thursday against the Giants, the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Since undergoing surgery in March to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, Dobson has been limited during camp. He did not begin practicing until Aug. 11, but has ramped up his activity of late and is evidently on track to see some playing time Thursday. Once he re-establishes his health/conditioning, Dobson should be on track to emerge as the Patriots' top outside receiver, over Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell. In that scenario, Dobson figures to represent a key downfield threat in the New England offense this season, while working in tandem with fellow wideouts Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.(RotoWire, )

News: Dobson (foot) did not suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Dobson was able to take some some limited reps in 11-on-11 work this past week, a sign of progress, but it remains to be seen when he will be fully turned loose by the Patriots. When Dobson is finally up to speed, he has a chance to emerge as a key outside/downfield threat (working in tandem with fellow wideouts Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman) in the team's offense this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Dobson (foot) is not expected to play Friday against the Panthers, ESPN.com reports. Impact: While the report notes that Dobson has started taking limited reps in 11-on-11 drills, we suspect that the Patriots are not inclined to rush the wideout back, with an eye toward avoiding any setbacks with his surgically repaired foot in advance of Week 1.(RotoWire, )
