Aaron Dobson WR NE 17 Days

Dobson (hamstring) is reportedly headed for injured reserve, the Boston Herald reports.

Dobson, who caught 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie last season, was slowed during the offseason by a foot issue and subsequently never got on track this year, recording just three catches for 38 yards in four games. Assuming he can re-prove his health in the coming months, Dobson should have a chance to compete for a key role Patriots' offense next season, but at this stage, the 2013 second-rounder has much to prove before resurfacing on the fantasy radar.
