Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 20 vs KC (3 / 1 / 29 / 1 rec)
He wasn't very involved in the game plan with Gronk and Edelman seeing heavy targets, but Phillip Dorsett's one catch was a crucial deep touchdown. Dorsett caught the ball in his lap, but he was covered well and the catch took immense concentration. As per usual, he didn't play as much as Edelman and Hogan, but he will still be important as an option on passing plays.
2018 Week 19 vs LAC (5 / 4 / 41 / 1 rec)
With James White, Julian Edelman, and Sony Michel dominating in their respective areas, Dorsett wasn't called upon much. However, he did score Tom Brady's lone touchdown on a medium length score. Dorsett ran right past his man in coverage, and it could have been a case of coverage or communication breakdown. Still, he made a nice catch on the run, and will still see a good complement of snaps going forward.
2018 Week 17 vs NYJ (5 / 5 / 34 / 1 rec, 2 / 16 / 0 rush)
As expected, Dorsett's role increased with Josh Gordon gone. Though he primarily caught short passes, his touchdown was a very nice catch, running with his rolling QB for an on-the-move score. Dorsett will definitely have a playoff role.
2018 Week 5 vs IND (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
As expected, with Edelman back, Dorsett's role on the team diminished, and he didn't have much to show for his efforts.
2018 Week 4 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 55 / 1 rec)
Dorsett's big play was his nifty touchdown catch, which saw him do a front flip in midair as he caught the ball. His big blemish was a dropped deep ball that would have easily seen him over 100 yards on the day. He played a decent role against the Dolphins, but that could change with Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman.
2018 Week 3 vs DET (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Pats used Dorsett like they did Brandin Cooks last season, and Phillip Dorsett isn't Brandin Cooks. As a result, he caught 0 passes on 5 targets. Tom Brady's interception went Dorsett's way, but should never have been thrown, as Dorsett was smothered in double coverage.
2018 Week 2 vs JAX (7 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
Once again, Dorsett was involved in the Pats passing attack, though almost all his targets were short throws beyond one deep shot. He did adequately on his opportunities, though he didn't have much to work with. We will likely see a bit more inconsistency once Julian Edelman returns, but for now, he's actually carved out a useful role in this offense.
2018 Week 1 vs HOU (7 / 7 / 66 / 1 rec)
Surprisingly, Philip Dorsett was a main vein in the passing game against the Texans, moving the chains several times. The Texans defensive backs weren't exactly world beaters, but he did what he had to do as Tom Brady searched for weapons. His touchdown was a nice out route that thoroughly beat his covering defender. He may show inconsistency week to week, but his snap and target count showed that he's towards the top of the WR pecking order while Julian Edelman is out.
