Aaron Dobson makes first grab of the season


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Patriots second-year receiver Aaron Dobson made his first catch of the season in his first game of the season on Sunday, hauling in a 13-yard pass from Tom Brady. It was the only catch for Dobson, who started and was part of a quiet pass attack for New England -- they didn't have to throw much in a 30-7 rout of the Vikings. 

Dobson could see some better opportunities later this season including against the Raiders in Week 3.

Dobson caught three passes for 57 yards and a 33-yard touchdown in the second quarter that provided his team's first score. Not bad considering he's coming off March surgery on his left foot.

"I feel like everything is coming," Dobson told the Boston Herald. "I can't say everything is back. It's my first game back, so I've still got to feel everything out. I'm still getting my confidence, just building my confidence and growing as much as I can."

Dobson missed all of the offseason workouts and didn't begin his training camp until Aug. 11.

Aaron Dobson has permanent screw in his foot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson had surgery March 10 to repair a stress fracture, doctors inserted a permanent screw "to aid the healing process, which speaks to the magnitude of the procedure," reports the Boston Herald.

Dobson didn't even start running until July. He's been doing conditioning work on the side at practice, "but his change-of-direction work hasn't been showcased much out in the open," the paper said.

The Patriots' medical staff wants to make sure Dobson can "handle the rigors of the job" before allowing him to practice, the report said.

Aaron Dobson's foot 'getting better every day'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson, who had foot surgery in March, sounds confident he'll be available during training camp, reports the Boston Herald. "It’s doing better, man," he said. "It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts."

Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. He's tried to stay mentally sharp despite missing offseason workouts.

"You’ve got to keep yourself focused on what your job is," he said. "I know I can’t go out there and physically do it, but mentally you’ve got to be there. That’s the biggest part is just being there mentally because it’s easy for yourself to slip. So you’ve just got to stay on top of yourself and be responsible, really, and do your job."


Optimism about Aaron Dobson's camp availability


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) There is optimism that Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson will be ready for training camp, reports MassLive.com. Dobson missed spring workouts after undergoing foot surgery in March.

In 12 regular-season games, Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards with four touchdowns. The website said Dobson "is expected to play a major role in the passing game during his second season."


Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins could battle for starting spot


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2014) When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) is healthy he is expected to start this season, but he could face competition in training camp from Kenbrell Thompkins, reports ESPN.

The report says that with Dobson out, Thompkins would start in his place.

"He's built some nice momentum in spring camps, and Dobson now has to try to do the same in training camp," the report says. "Among the many competitions on the roster, that should be a fun one to watch. Dobson was drafted in the second round last year for a reason; they are expecting big things from him."


Pats want Aaron Dobson ready for training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) The Patriots are expecting receiver Aaron Dobson to be ready for training camp, reports the Boston Herald.

Dobson missed the entire nine-week offseason workout program after undergoing surgery March 10 to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, which carried an initial estimated recovery time of 2-3 months.

Dobson is past that deadline already and still needs to regain full strength in his foot to prevent re-injury, according to a source. The report says the Patriots didn't feel the need to rush him onto the field during minicamp this week, as the goal for his return has shifted to training camp.

The team was prepared in March for this scenario, so hopefully he'll be ready then.


Aaron Dobson unlikely for minicamp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) A source says Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson is unlikely to participate in the team's minicamp this week as he's still working his way back from March foot surgery according to MassLive.com. The original timetable was believed to be two to three months. 

Dobson originally tried to heal his injury, suffered Week 12, without surgery but eventually succumbed. He's not wearing a walking boot and is "doing better." 


Aaron Dobson undergoes foot surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson underwent surgery on Monday to repair a stress fracture in his foot, according to the Boston Globe. It seems unlikely he'll be cleared in time for the start of the offseason program on April 21.

Dobson had 37 catches for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.


Aaron Dobson still dealing with foot problem


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/3/2014) Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson is still dealing with the stress fracture in his left foot, which has limited his progress this offseason, reports the Boston Herald. He has to wait two weeks for a more definitive diagnosis, and the best thing for him right now is rest.

The report says Dobson could require surgery if giving his foot rest did not work. If that hapens, it sounds unlikely he'd be cleared in time for the April 21 start of the offseason program if he needs the procedure.

"Hopefully, I don't know yet, but hopefully I will be," said Dobson of his availability for the offseason program. 

Dobson heads into his second season hoping to improve on his rookie totals. He had 37 catches for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.

"I've just got to build off that," Dobson said. "I definitely had a setback, but I feel like I have to build off that, take it for what it was, learn from it, the experience of the games I was in, playing good and take it and run with it."


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.


Aaron Dobson looks like 'a difference maker'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Receiver Aaron Dobson appeared to be "a difference maker" before suffering the first of his two foot injuries, and he's "a critical part of the development of the Patriots’ passing game going forward," reports ESPN.com. Dobson caught 42 passes in 12 games as a rookie while bringing "unique size and a catch radius that played a part in the red zone," the report added.

Dobson, 22, played just under half the offensive snaps. He's ticketed for a bigger role in 2014.  


Aaron Dobson seeking to come back from foot injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson is working to rebound from a stress fracture in his left foot that ruined the second half of what had been a promising season.

Dobson caught 31 passes for 454 yards and four touchdowns in his first eight games. That alone was the most receiving yards and touchdowns for a Patriots rookie receiver in the Tom Brady era. But he managed just six catches for 65 yards the rest of the way, missing three games in the process.

"I guess I have wondered 'what if,' but stuff like that happens," Dobson told the Boston Herald. "You're not going to be 100 percent throigh the whole season, so I tried to get through it the best way I could."


Patriots get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
