Dorsett hauled in all five of his targets for 34 yards and a TD in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Jets. With Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) inactive Sunday, Dorsett 's involvement in the Patriots' offense increased and as has been the case when given expanded opportunities, the wideout did his job capably. The 25-year-old speedster finished the 2018 season with 32 catches (on 42 targets) for 290 yards and three TDs in 16 games. His numbers were capped by the fact that there were multiple games in which he wasn't targeted, but Dorsett was able to produce when the team was shorthanded at wideout. The 2015 first-rounder is eligible to become a free agent this offseason.
With Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) inactive, Dorsett is in line to see added snaps Sunday against the Jets, Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald reports. He'll still be working behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan, but Dorsett, who hasn't caught a pass since Week 12, has a chance to factor in Sunday, given that the Patriots' thinned-out wideout corps will be without both Patterson and Josh Gordon (suspension) in Week 17.
Dorsett was not targeted in Sunday's 24-12 win over the Bills. Dorsett was on the field for 27 out of a possible 75 snaps on offense Sunday, but even in the absence of Josh Gordon, he wasn't a factor in the game. It's possible that could change either in Week 17 or the playoffs, but Dorsett is off the fantasy lineup radar until he starts catching passes again.
Dorsett was on the field for two of the Patriots' 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers. Dorsett has now gone three straight games without a target, and he'll remain off the fantasy radar until injuries hit the likes of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Chris Hogan.
Dorsett logged seven of a possible 82 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins. Dorsett was not targeted for the second straight game and will remain off the fantasy radar unless injuries hit the Patriots' receiving corps.
