Phillip Dorsett Fantasy Football News 2020

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are active for tonight’s game against the Texans. Dorsett should be a full-go after clearing the protocol on Wednesday. Sanu comes with a bit more risk, although he did put in 3 limited practices this week.

Patriots WRs Phillip Dorsett (concussion) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are expected to play against the Texans tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Dorsett news was expected after he cleared the protocol Wednesday, but Sanu is surprising after we heard last week that he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Consider both guys risk/reward WR3s in tonight's plus matchup. Rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers are no longer fantasy options.

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Texans. Both guys were limited in practice all week. Sanu is reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, so consider him no better than 50/50 for this one. Dorsett said Wednesday that he cleared the concussion protocol, but the fact that he remained limited all week is slightly concerning. We’ll look for updates on both guys Sunday morning.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett has cleared the concussion protocol. Barring a setback, he'll return for Sunday night's game against the Texans. Dorsett figures to slide back into the starting lineup and will carry some fantasy upside vs. Houston's 20th-ranked WR defense.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he’ll be limited today. WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are inactive, leaving rookies N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as New England’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still hasn’t received full medical clearance. Hopefully we get an update on Dorsett on Sunday morning.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. If Dorsett plays, he figures to serve as New England's #2 WR with Mohamed Sanu out with his ankle injury.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett sustained a concussion on his 3rd-quarter TD against the Eagles on Sunday. It's his 1st documented concussion. We'll track Dorsett's progress through the protocol this coming week. His absence would free up snaps for rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers.

The forecast for today's Browns-Patriots game calls for a 100% chance of rain, with heavy rainfall at times possible. The wind will be at just 7-14 mph, so that shouldn't have a major impact. But this will be a wet one. We've made some slight adjustments to our projections for this game.

The Patriots have traded a 2nd-round pick to the Falcons in exchange for WR Mohamed Sanu. New England tried to acquire Sanu during this spring's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so it's clearly a player the team covets. Sanu was a steady producer in Atlanta, averaging 4.2 catches and 47 yards per game over the past 3+ seasons. He played primarily in the slot for the Falcons, but we'll see how he fits into the Patriots' WR corps alongside Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon (once he's back from his knee injury), Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers. When everyone's healthy, it figures to be Edelman, Gordon and Sanu in 3-WR sets. Sanu has a brand new offense to learn, though. And note that he's going from the league's 2nd pass-heaviest offense to its 14th run-heaviest. Sanu is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but won't be a recommended Week 8 starter. The Falcons, meanwhile, figures to roll with either Justin Hardy or Russell Gage as the #3 WR. But Sanu's departure will mostly just free up extra targets for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Jets. He should slide in as New England's #2 WR with Josh Gordon out, although there's elevated risk here as Dorsett comes off the hamstring injury.

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He was limited with this knee issue last week but wasn't on the final injury report. We've heard nothing to suggest it's a real concern, but check back around 7 pm ET tomorrow to make sure he's active. WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) is out for Week 5, leaving rookie Jakobi Meyers as New England's #3 WR.
