2019 Fantasy Outlook
Slot maven Julian Edelman and the now-reinstated Josh Gordon will head the Patriots' wideout corps out of the gate, but with first-rounder K'Neal Harry on IR, both Dorsett and Demaryius Thomas, who is bouncing back from an Achilles' injury, have an opportunity top carve out complementary roles in the New England offense. Dorsett has produced for the team when given an opportunity, and he's now gone from fighting for a roster spot to being on the cusp on fantasy relevance. Read Past Outlooks

Dorsett (hamstring) took part in the part of Tuesday's practice open to the media, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dorsett took a seat last Thursday against the Giants after suffering a hamstring injury on the previous Sunday. With a week of recovery under his belt, he's trending in the right direction, but his activity level in practice won't be revealed until Thursday with the Pats next taking the field Monday versus the Jets in New York.

2015
Dorsett didn't make much of a splash in his first season with New England, notching just 12 catches for 194 yards in 15 games. He did, however, enter the league as a highly-touted first-round pick, so there's some untapped potential here. With Julian Edelman now facing a four-game suspension out of the gate, Dorsett has a chance to carve out a role opposite Chris Hogan early on. Dorsett has some competition, though. The group jostling for snaps and targets includes Eric Decker, Cordarrelle Patterson and Braxton Berrios. Dorsett's speed remains an asset, so it's not out of the question that he could blossom in 2018 as a downfield threat replacing Brandin Cooks.
It's hard to believe Dorsett was a first-round pick only two years ago, but even when Donte Moncrief missed time, Dorsett failed to take advantage, despite being the clear No. 2 and having Andrew Luck as his QB. Perhaps part of the problem is an overlap in skill set with the Colts' top receiver, T.Y. Hilton. Both are slightly built, speedy downfield threats. Dorsett is 5-10, 185, with blistering 4.33 40 speed, while Hilton is 5-9, 180 with 4.34, and you can't have two players running the same route. Moreover, Dorsett actually put up good per-play numbers -- 16 YPC, 8.9 YPT -- and had four catches of 40-plus yards, so it was more the lack of opportunity than failure to convert when he saw the ball. After losing out in a competition for the No. 3 job in Indianapolis, the speedy Dorsett was traded to New England in early September in exchange for quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Dorsett merely profiles as the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Patriots, joining a group that includes Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell.
Dorsett's rookie season was derailed by injury. He missed five weeks with a broken ankle, and when he came back quarterback Andrew Luck was already out for the year. As such, we can throw out his 39-target sample and give him more or less a clean slate heading into 2016. At 5-10, 185, Dorsett is small, but he's one of the faster receivers in the league (4.33 40) and has exceptional quickness. With Andre Johnson gone, he should slot in as the team's No. 3 target, but he'll have competition on deep routes from T.Y. Hilton. Dorsett is never likely to be much of a red-zone threat, especially with the larger Donte Moncrief and TE Dwayne Allen around. Still, Dorsett's likely to have a significant role on the pass-happy Colts, and with Luck healthy again, he has upside should anything happen to Hilton or Moncrief.
Dorsett was a surprise first-round draft pick for the Colts in 2015 and will compete for playing time among a deep wide receiver corps. Dorsett is small -- he checks in at about 5-foot-10, 185 pounds – but has outstanding 4.33 speed and exceptional quickness. His value may be higher in keeper leagues as he'll begin the season as the fourth receiver, but could be a top target by next season.
