Patriots WR Aaron Dobson benched because he 'mouthed off' to OC Josh McDaniel

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Patriots scratched wide receiver Aaron Dobson in each of the last two games.

We now reportedly have an idea why.

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, the Patriots benched Dobson for the Sept. 21 win vs. Oakland and the Sept. 29 loss at Kansas City after the second-year wide receiver “mouthed off” to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Fantasy Impact: 

Dobson was penciled in as the starter opposite Julian Edelman, but that hasn't gone to plan. Now we know why. Dobson's punishment should be over quickly, especially since the team is desperate for playmakers in the passing game.
