Aaron Dobson heads list of unavailable Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson will start training camp on the PUP list as he continues to rehab from March foot surgery. Also on the list are defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), special teams standout Matthew Slater and receiver Jeremy Gallon.

In addition, first-round defensive lineman Dominique Easley will start camp on the Non-Football Injury list as he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered at Florida last season. Joining him on that list are running back Roy Finch, linebacker Deontae Skinner and offensive tackle Chris Martin.


Dominique Easley a good pick for Pats, bad for Fantasy


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Dominique Easley was an interesting choice by the Patriots, but Fantasy owners shouldn't be so piqued. For starters, Easley has torn each of his ACLs and is still recovering from one last September. If he's ready to start the season he'll still be behind veterans Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly on the depth chart and might not play much.

But the most important factor to Fantasy owners is the lack of stats that defensive tackles typically get. It would take a banner year from Easley to make an impact in Fantasy. Until things start to look like they're coming together for him, Fantasy owners shouldn't indulge. We'd pass on him in seasonal and long-term formats.

Patriots select Dominique Easley at No. 29


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 29 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected defensive tackle Dominique Easley from Florida.

Easley, who is 6-foot-2, 288 pounds, suffered two ACL tears in college. He came back from a left ACL tear in 2011, then blew out his right ACL last September.

When healthy, Easley has exceptional quickness, constantly playing on the other side of the line of scrimmage. He will provide the Patriots defense and Patriots DST with depth as a rotation player behind Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly.

Pats sign Kelly


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/8/2013) Hoping to fortify their interior defensive line alongside perennial Pro Bowl tackle Vince Wilfork, the Patriots have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, NFL.com reported. Kelly, a nine-year veteran, was waived by the Raiders in late-March in a cost-cutting move. The former Mississippi State lineman was set to carry a cap hit of $6.5 million for the 2013 season before his release. After recording 14.5 sacks from 2010 to 2011, Kelly's sack total dipped to 1.0 last season. Prior to the subpar year in 2012, Kelly had a pair of stellar seasons in Oakland. Kelly, who was used at defensive end early in his career, is a versatile lineman that can be utilized in several different positions along a front four. Before a 2005 meeting with the Raiders, Bill Belichick compared Kelly favorably with Howie Long.
