The Colts on Saturday traded disappointing WR Phillip Dorsett to the Patriots for 3rd-string QB Jacoby Brissett. Dorsett caught just 51 passes through 2 seasons in Indy after arriving as a late 1st-round pick. Brissett just finished throwing 4 TD passes in New England's preseason finale. The move could signal significant worry that QB Andrew Luck will miss multiple games as he works back from offseason shoulder surgery. Dorsett's a poor bet to make a fantasy impact in 2017, though he could see some early targets if WR Malcolm Mitchell remains hobbled.

The Seahawks have signed WR Phillip Dorsett to a 1-year deal. A 1st-round pick back 2015, Dorsett has yet to top 33 catches or 528 yards in a season. He's coming off a 29-396-5 line with the Patriots last year. Dorsett will battle for #3 WR duties in Seattle and is unlikely to emerge as a 2020 fantasy asset barring injury to Tyler Lockett or D.K. Metcalf.

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 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 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.
