Patriots WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Aaron Dobson questionable for AFC Championship

The Patriots have released their final injury report of the week, and wide receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson can find their names in the "questionable" column.
Thompkins was officially limited during practice, but he suffered a concussion last week against the Colts, and it's unclear if he has been cleared to play yet. Meanwhile, Dobson returned to practice this week after resting his troublesome foot for a couple of weeks. Dobson has been in and out of action since Week 12 due to a sprained foot.

Fantasy Analysis:

Given the nebulous nature of Thompkins' status, I think Dobson has stronger odds of playing against the Broncos. Both were on Friday's team flight to Denver, and it would be a bonus if both can suit up. As I've said all week, I really don't want to gamble on either of these two in fantasy playoff leagues. But their presence is good news for the Patriots, who need someone to attract some defensive attention outside the numbers.
