Patriots | Chris Hogan listed as questionable

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 13:26:56 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Feb. 3, and is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LI.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan should be in uniform despite the injury and likely will have a solid role in the passing game against the Atlanta Falcons. He should be a top three receiver for the Patriots in 2017 and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

Patriots | Another limited practice for Chris Hogan

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 15:52:48 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited in practice again Thursday, Feb. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan sustained the thigh ailment in the Divisional Round, but considering he posted his memorable breakout performance the very next week with nine catches for 180 yards and a pair of two touchdowns, he's fine. The former Buffalo Bill could be a real dark horse to win the Super Bowl MVP award.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has dealt with this thigh injury over the last few weeks but has not missed any playing time and is coming off a terrific Divisional round performance. He probably will serve as the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in the Super Bowl and can be a fantasy option against the Atlanta Falcons. He should have a similar role next season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Chris Hogan also limited

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 14:22:10 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The hero of the AFC Championship will be fine for the Super Bowl as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Players have an extra week to recover and recuperate for the big game. Don't expect Hogan to go crazy like he did last week, but he should still be considered in daily fantasy Super Bowl contests.

Patriots | Chris Hogan achieves postseason history

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 21:25:06 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan's 180 receiving yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers are the most ever in a postseason contest by an undrafted player. The previous high was retired WR Steve Watson's 177 yards for the 1984 Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has rapidly become one of the league's best breakout stories, and he's picked the right time to do it. Despite registering only 38 receptions in 15 games for the Patriots during the regular season, the 28-year-old Hogan has accumulated 13 catches across both of New England's playoff bouts, to go along with 275 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. In what will likely be a shootout, Hogan may be on the verge of producing another big stat-line in the Super Bowl.

Patriots | Chris Hogan throttles Steelers

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:05:22 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught nine passes for a game-high 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh had no answer for Hogan in the first half, when he landed seven of his nine receptions and both TDs. The first-year Patriot carved up zone coverage and worked the screen game. He's a WR4 or No. 5 in 2017 fantasy drafts, possessing more worth in non-PPR setups.

Patriots | Chris Hogan ready to go

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 23:49:32 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) is likely to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan caught all four of his targeted passes for 95 yards last week before exiting with a thigh injury. He'll likely start opposite Julian Edelman and should offer enough upside to warrant a spot as a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:44:09 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can keep an eye on the situation to see if Hogan is in any danger of missing the game. He probably will be the team's No. 2 receiver if he plays and can be a decent No. 3 receiver option for owners.

Patriots | Chris Hogan limited Thursday

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:51:08 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has already said he would play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 22, so this is likely a precaution. Hogan is a darkhorse for catching passes, having nabbed all of his four targets in the postseason for 95 yards.

Patriots | Chris Hogan doing well

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:56:43 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) said he feels good after exiting early with a thigh injury against the Houston Texans last weekend. "[I] just had a little minor setback in the game," Hogan said. "I'm working back every single day and feeling better every day."

Fantasy Tip: The arrow is pointing upward for Hogan's availability in the AFC Championship, but he's not out of the woods yet. If Hogan does play and Malcolm Mitchell sits again then Hogan would make for a sleeper play. He caught four passes for 95 yards before leaving last weekend's contest.

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 19:35:44 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) exited against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, with a thigh injury and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: If Hogan can't return, Michael Floyd should see a bump in action as the No. 2 receiver option behind Julian Edelman.

Patriots | Chris Hogan held to one catch

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 14:16:37 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught one pass for 22 yards against the New York Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has been held to under 30 yards in three of his last four games but also has two touchdowns during that span. He could receive more playing time in Week 17 but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan posted five receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has visited the end zone in back-to-back games, and he has at least four receptions in each of his past three outings. He has emerged as a useful fantasy option in PPR fantasy formats.

Patriots | Chris Hogan visits end zone

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:16:51 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan posted four receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has a total of four catches in three of his past four outings, and he has at least 70 or more receiving yards in two of the games. However, his production has been rather erratic and he is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:14:44 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) is active for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been able to play through this injury for a while, so fantasy owners should have no reservations about using him as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

Patriots | Chris Hogan limited at practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:28:21 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has come on in recent weeks to become a factor in New England's high-octane offense, so consider him in the FLEX conversation. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Hogan has a better chance at sustaining that value.

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 14:16:54 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has been off and on this season when healthy. There are too many mouths to feed for the Patriots, so Hogan's fantasy value is stinted. He's too risky to start even if he plays.

Patriots | Chris Hogan a no-go for Week 11

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:55:34 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) has been ruled out for Week 11 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan managed to get in limited practices this week, but perhaps the team felt there is no reason to put him on a cross-country flight when they should have little problem beating the 49ers without him. His absence opens up an opportunity for rookie Malcolm Mitchell and perhaps even Martellus Bennett to make plays downfield. Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola could be in line for an extra target or two as well.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has been a big-play threat for the Patriots, but he has plenty of games where he does next to nothing. He is a boom-or-bust flex option against the 49ers in Week 11.

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:55:16 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan was held without a catch against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10 but will have a more favorable matchup this week. He has been targeted more than five time in only one game this season but has posted two games of at least 90 yards in his last five games. He could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 22:31:28 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was targeted three times in the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks but he did not have any catches or offensive statistics.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan was dealing with a back injury entering play and it's uncertain if that was the reason he failed to factor into the offense much. However his scoreless fantasy performance is a huge concern heading into Week 11 in San Francisco.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 07:54:53 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) will be a game-time decision for Week 10's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan is listed as questionable on the injury report and did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 11. With New England playing a Sunday night game, he is too much of a risk to insert into fantasy lineups this week.

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 18:31:18 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan is averaging 24.5 yards per catch since QB Tom Brady has returned, catching 11 passes for 269 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan is a bit too boom or bust to trust in standard leagues, but his big-play potential makes him an intriguing option in DFS formats.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:24:45 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (head) had one catch for 39 yards on his only target in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan suffered a head injury last week and he might have been limited as a result. Wait to see him get back into the four-to-six target range before trusting him again in deeper fantasy leagues.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 11:46:52 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught four passes for 114 in the first half against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

Patriots | Chris Hogan listed as questionable

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 14:05:09 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable heading into Week 2 versus the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: It's a dubious distinction given that Hogan practiced fully on Wednesday and Thursday, but it could also be another Bill Belichick mind-game for all we know. Expect him to play for now. Thankfully, the Patriots play in the early afternoon block of games on Sunday, so owners will have plenty of time to decide on another course of action should Hogan be ruled inactive.

Patriots | Chris Hogan's role still 'evolving'

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 16:13:45 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan believes his role within the offense will be determined "week-to-week" and that "it's still evolving".

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has massive PPR upside in the Patriots' offense - given his ability to play the slot - if Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola continue to struggle with durability again this year. For now, he will most likely begin the season as the team's top outside receiver, replacing Brandon LaFell. Heading into Week 1, he's probably no better than a WR5 option.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught five passes for a game-high 62 yards and scored on a 33-yard pass from QB Tom Brady in a 19-17 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Scoop Hogan up as a WR4. Given the injury history of New England's current group of receivers, Hogan could end up being one of Tom Brady's top targets at various time throughout the year.

Patriots | Chris Hogan injures shoulder

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 21:50:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in practice Tuesday, Aug. 2. The good news is that the injury is not considered serious, according to a source. He will have treatment, let the pain subside and will be able to return to practice soon.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has had difficulty staying healthy in his career. He has a golden opportunity to take a step forward in his career working with Jimmy Garappolo and Tom Brady in a high-octane New England offense, and he could be a solid WR4/5 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if he can stay on the field.

Patriots | Four WR spots set in New England

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:27:40 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are considered locks as the top four wide receivers. The team is expected to keep one or two more receivers from a list that includes WRs DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper, Devin Lucien, Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington. Dobson has reportedly looked good in training camp so far, but the fact he doesn't play special teams might hurt his chances. Martin received a $600K fantasy bonus in January, so he might be the favorite for the No. 5 job.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman and Amendola will be the top fantasy options, while Hogan and Mitchell are worth fliers in leagues with deeper rosters. The others have little to no fantasy appeal, although if injuries open up more prominent roles the No. 5 or 6 receivers could emerge later.
