ESPN Boston - [Full Article]

When it comes to a taller "X" receiver on the edges, there is the proven commodity (10-year veteran Michael Jenkins) versus the higher-upside rookie (second-round pick Aaron Dobson). In spring drills, Jenkins (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) was a consistent presence in the role by taking most of the top-unit reps, but that doesn't mean he'll necessarily be there when it counts. You have to figure Dobson (6-3, 200) will be given every chance to seize the job and develop the desired connection with quarterback Tom Brady. He showed flashes of excellence in camp (specifically in contested situations down the sideline) but also some inconsistency catching the ball.

Fantasy Impact: 

Our money is on Dobson winning the job, though it's no sure thing that he'll make a fantasy impact given the team's history with rookie receivers.
