Dobson was on the field for 11-of-84 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Dobson caught one pass for 16 yards in the game, but for the time being, Brandon LaFell (77 snaps) and Julian Edelman (69 snaps) are the Patriots' top two wideouts in terms of playing time. Until that changes, Dobson remains off the fantasy lineup radar.

Dobson is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Dobson -- a potential downfield threat in the New England offense -- rejoins the Patriots' wideout mix this weekend, though we'd still like to see him turn in a full and production game before endorsing him as a fantasy lineup option.

Coach Bill Belichick indicated Friday that Dobson's deactivation from this past Monday's game against the Chiefs was a football decision, and not a disciplinary matter, the Boston Globe reports.

Though a report had surfaced suggesting that Dobson's deactivation may have been related to a verbal disagreement with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, ESPN.com relays that Belichick refuted such a notion in a statement the coach made Friday. "In my year and a half with Aaron Dobson, he has always been respectful to me and to the rest of the coaching staff. He has never once been argumentative or confrontational," Belichick noted. "The suggestion and reporting that his playing time was in any way the result of a 'loud disagreement' with a coach is completely false." With that said, Dobson's status for Sunday night's game against the Bengals in unclear, though once he does return to action, the wideout retains the potential to emerge as a much-needed downfield threat in the Patriots' offense.

Coach Bill Belichick said Friday that Dobson was inactive the past two weeks for football reasons, NFL.com reports.

In classic Belichick fashion, he didn't expound on those reasons, though he did refute the recent report that there was some type of altercation between Dobson and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Either way, Dobson's status for Sunday night's tilt with the Bengals remains murky.

The Boston Globe indicates that Dobson has been inactive for the Patriots' last two games because of reported issues that the wideout has had with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Per the report, Dobson "has had at least one loud disagreement" with McDaniels, which evidently led to Dobson being made a healthy scratch the last two weeks. At this stage, it remains to be seen if Dobson will suit up Sunday night against the Bengals, though in the event that he is re-introduced to the team's wideout mix, in time, Dobson retains the potential to emerge as a needed downfield threat for the team.
