  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett drawing interest    Fri Mar 1, 10:17 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett has a 'strong market for his services,' according to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe, and Volin said teams view Dorsett as a potential No. 2 receiver.

Footballguys view: It's not a great market for free agent wide receivers, so guys like Dorsett, Golden Tate, Tyrell Williams, etc might get higher price tags than some think. Dorsett has not yet played up to his potential as a pro. A first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Dorsett has a career high of only 33 catches (2016, Indianapolis). We'll see if another fresh start jump starts his career.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett could have larger role    Thu Aug 23, 12:18 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett is on track for a larger role entering his second season with the team. He is the projected starter opposite Chris Hogan to open the regular season. 'I think my comfort level has gotten a lot better,' Dorsett said. 'But you can't get complacent in this offense. Everything changes. There's a lot thrown at you, and they expect the best from you. So if you don't bring your best out there, something bad is going to happen.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs aren't pulling the lever on him on draft day, but he's worth watching on the waiver wire. He is going as the 88th receiver off the board when he does get picked but we wouldn't even burn that spot.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett leaves practice    Tue Aug 14, 04:22 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (undisclosed) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 14, after slipping.

Footballguys view: He walked off the field under his own power and the issue did not appear to be serious. Dorsett has a chance to carve out a larger role than some think in the Patriots offense. Fantasy GMs are not selecting Dorsett in most 12-team PPR leagues, so keep him on your waiver wire speed dial. If he plays well in the preseason then perhaps taking a flier on him in the late rounds is something you should consider.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett having 'notable' camp so far    Tue Aug 7, 02:52 AM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett has been one of the 'notable performers' through the first 10 practices, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. At times, he's also been breaking off to a second field with QB Tom Brady and 'a few others.'

Footballguys view: Dorsett has lined up inside at times, and he can also fill the void left by Brandin Cooks in the deep passing game. He, Cordarrelle Patterson, Kenny Britt, and Eric Decker are competing for a fantasy relevant WR2 role in the Patriots offense while Julian Edelman is suspended. All are potential last round picks or Week 2 waiver wire wonders.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett used in slot    Thu Jul 26, 02:44 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett worked as a slot receiver during practice Thursday, July 26.

Footballguys view: With Julian Edelman out for part of the season due to a PDE violation, the Patriots will kick the tires on a few guys to step into the slot. Dorsett has a lot to prove, but we aren't excited by his prospects. That said, watching the Patriots receivers in camp could be important in getting a cheap, but effective, receiver.

  Patriots | Three WRs on Pats' bubble    Wed Jul 18, 09:33 AM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell, Kenny Britt and Phillip Dorsett are on the bubble to make the team, according to beat writer Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: Mitchell is on the bubble because he just can't stay healthy. A fourth-round pick out of Georgia in 2016, Mitchell missed all of the 2017 season due to a knee injury. Even though he's over a year removed from the injury, his status for the start of training camp is unknown. Dorsett is a speed guy who hasn't done much to impress with the Colts or the Patriots. Britt had a 1,000 yard season back in 2016 (with the Rams) but he had a bad 2017, getting picked up by the Patriots near the end of the year and Britt was a healthy scratch for Super Bowl 52.

  Patriots | Two WRs may compete for one spot    Sat Jul 14, 12:15 PM

New England Patriots WRs Kenny Britt and Phillip Dorsett likely will compete for the No. 5 receiver job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Both have shown ability in the past but neither one has done so consistently. It's hard to imagine fifth receiver on the Patriots moving the needle in as far as fantasy production is concerned, but it's worth taking note of who wins the job in case of injuries ahead of that receiver.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett finally comfortable    Sun Jun 10, 11:16 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett said he has found a 'comfort level' with the offense after having an offseason to run routes and study film.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has tons of speed but he's never put it all together on the field. The Patriots have a packed WR corps, and even with Julian Edelman's four-game suspension we'll see Dorsett have a hard time finding playing time or getting targets.

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) said his knee is a little sore but hopes to participate in practice this week.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are banged up on offense, so having Dorsett available would help. Dorsett was able to catch three passes for 68 yards before exiting the game against the Saints in Week 2.

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 2.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett may receive bigger role    Wed Sep 6, 08:21 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett could have a bigger role in the offense in Week 1 if WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is not able to play.

Footballguys view: Dorsett could be a part of the 'go deep' rotation the Pats have at wide receiver. He's been a career disappointment to this point in his career, but the former first-round pick has a chance to revamp his game with the Patriots.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett acquired by Pats    Sat Sep 2, 01:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett was acquired by the New England Patriots Saturday, Sept. 2, in exchange for QB Jacoby Brissett, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick (2015) for the Colts, Dorsett never really played up to his potential. The speedy WR could line up on the outside for the Pats and that moves Chris Hogan inside to the slot. We're still high on Hogan and Brandin Cooks, and with the TEs and RBs in New England, there's not a lot there for Dorsett.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett returns to practice    Wed Aug 16, 03:47 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hip) returned to practice this week after missing practice all of last week with a minor hip injury. Dorsett said he's been doing everything he can and believes he's been improving every day at training camp.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2015, Dorsett has been a disappointment to this point in his career. He's yet to play a full 16-game season, and Dorsett's 33 catches last year was a career high. We're not expecting or projecting him to do much more than that this season.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett may return soon    Mon Aug 14, 06:59 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) could return to practice in the next few days, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has been a career disappointment. The speedy wideout needs to get healthy and start impressing with his team. His dynasty stock is super low, so add him if you believe he can bounce back.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett has hamstring issue    Thu Aug 10, 11:54 AM

Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) is still bothered by a hamstring issue that kept him out of minicamp.

Footballguys view: Dorsett will just continue to fall behind guys like Chester Rogers as they vie for the No. 3 job, and it looks more and more like he was a wasted pick. We still don't know what is up with Andrew Luck and even if healthy, Luck isn't going to use his third receiver a ton, but if TY Hilton or Donte Moncrief get hurt, that spot could end up producing.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett has work to do?    Thu Aug 3, 11:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is well behind WR Chester Rogers in the competition for the No. 3 receiver job, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: This matches earlier reports. On one hand, it's too bad that the Colts seem to have wasted a first-round pick, but on the other, at least they are admitting their mistakes and willing to give reps to a player that had a much smaller investment but is the better performer. If Andrew Luck is ok and one of the top two wideouts for the Colts miss time, we'll be talking about Rogers in our fantasy leagues this year.

  Colts | Chester Rogers challenging for serious playing time    Thu Jun 22, 07:53 PM

Kevin Bowen, of Colts.com, reports Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers is challenging for serious playing time in 2017. According to the report, Rogers has a 'real shot' at winning the no3 job at wide receiver behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

Footballguys view: It's definitely way too early to start talking about this, and third wide receiver isn't particularly a lucrative and high-producing fantasy option. The Colts have TE Jack Doyle as the likely third option in the passing game, limiting the value of Rogers, Kamar Aiken or Philip Dorsett. We'll watch this, but we're not terribly excited. Yet.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett misses practice    Tue Jun 13, 11:07 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 13, because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2015, Dorsett has failed to live up to his potential due to injuries and inconsistency. Not much is known about this injury, but let's just say it's a bit of a make-or-break year for Dorsett with the Colts. If he doesn't get it done this year, the team could easily move on with other reserve receivers for the future. Dorsett will have to beat out free agent addition Kamar Aiken for the no3 job on the depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett's role in jeopardy    Mon Mar 27, 04:35 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett could lose his No. 3 wide receiver job to newcomer WR Kamar Aiken, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells. Dorsett and Aiken, in whatever order, are expected to back up WRs T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has been a disappointment ever since the Colts selected him in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. Aiken had a down year in 2016, but with a better role he could enjoy a bounce-back season.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett lacking consistency    Thu Feb 9, 10:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett had four catches of at least 50 yards last season, but he finished with 30 receiving yards or less in eight games.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has been a disappointment in his short pro career. A first-round pick in 2015, Dorsett has the speed to take the top off the defense but rarely does he make field-flipping plays. He's under contract through 2018, and the Colts have a fifth-year option they could exercise on Dorsett in 2019. At this point, it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
