Footballguys view: About a third of the Patriots roster is questionable in another typical chapter of Belichickian gamesmanship. All of the key names on this list should be available on Sunday.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett listed as questionable    Fri Nov 22, 06:16 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu are both game-time decisions this week. If one is able to go they'll be a solid flex play, if both can go it will be helpful for Tom Brady's outlook, but make it more difficult to project the passing game distribution.

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) suffered a minor hamstring injury in Week 5, and he's considered week to week.

Footballguys view: A hamstring injury is especially devastating for a speedy receiver like Dorsett. It's considered minor but we are unlikely to see Dorsett on Thursday against the Giants. Jakobi Meyers will get more work with Dorsett out.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett injures hamstring    Sun Oct 6, 01:28 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Dorsett led the wide receivers in targets last week and had become a core part of the pass offense. They may need to sign a wide receiver if this is a multi-week injury. UDFA rookie Jakobi Meyers becomes a big part of the offense for now.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett manages three touches    Sun Sep 29, 07:18 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett had two catches for just 10 yards on nine targets in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills and he had one carry for nine yards.

Footballguys view: Dorsett did lead the team in targets and should be better against a much weaker Washington defense next week. Don't drop him out of spite for this result.

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett caught six passes for 53 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 3. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Dorsett might be the biggest winner in the Antonio Brown release. He scored again and should be rostered in every league, especially after Julian Edelman left with a chest injury.

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (undisclosed) and WR Maurice Harris (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 14, because of undisclosed injuries.

  Patriots | Maurice Harris works with first team    Mon Jul 29, 02:25 AM

New England Patriots WR Maurice Harris took first-team snaps with WR Phillip Dorsett during team periods on Sunday, July 28, regardless of personnel grouping.

Footballguys view: Harris is having a great camp and might end up starting for the Patriots on the outside. First-round pick N'keal Harry could also come on, and Demaryius Thomas could have a quicker than expected recovery from his achilles tear like his former teammate Emmanuel Sanders. This will be a situation to watch, with Julian Edelman and James White still likely to be the top two Patriots in receptions.

  Patriots | Rookie WR Harry works with second team    Mon Jul 29, 01:51 AM

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry worked behind WRs Phillip Dorsett and Maurice Harris during team periods in practice on Sunday, July 28. He also took the field in team drills primarily when the Patriots went to 11 personnel using three wideouts, a running back and a tight end.

Footballguys view: Harry didn't have the most shining reports about his spring either, so it's fair to say that he has some work to do have redraft relevance early in the season. He isn't gaining steam in redraft leagues right now.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett in line to start?    Sun Jun 2, 09:40 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett 'seems like a logical fit' for the No. 3 receiver role in 2019, according to Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston.

Footballguys view: Watch this closely in training camp. The Patriots could use Dorsett's speed to take the top off the defense while Julian Edelman works the underneath routes and rookie N'Keal Harry showcases his run-after-the-catch ability. We'll see in camp if Demaryius Thomas can even make the team as he returns from an Achilles' injury, and Dontrelle Inman should push Dorsett for the No. 3 job.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett works with starters    Thu May 23, 11:12 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett worked with the first-team offense during positional drills in OTAs Thursday, May 23.

Footballguys view: Keep a close eye on Dorsett's usage in training camp and the preseason. He's always had the speed to get on top of defenses in the blink of an eye, but Dorsett has never played up to his full potential. The Pats kept him around on a one-year deal earlier this offseason and there is buzz that the team feels he can be a No. 2 wide receiver. He's currently going undrafted in 12-team PPR leagues but that would quickly change if Dorsett wins a starting job...stay tuned.

  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.
