Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

The Panthers signed Chris Hogan.

It's surprising that Hogan has been available on the open market this long, but the two-time Super Bowl champion with the Patriots has a new home. Hogan spent his first three NFL seasons in Buffalo and his past three in New England, mostly having a secondary-type role as an all-around receiver that won't make noise if the ball doesn't come his way. He should be a great pickup for the Panthers, who will likely go into the season with D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, and Hogan as their top three receivers. It's difficult to see Hogan's fantasy value getting much better as he leaves Tom Brady, but the 30-year-old is a good player that could deliver some startable fantasy weeks in 2019.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan held without a catch in Super Bowl LIII victory.

Hogan was targeted six times (third on the team), but he and Tom Brady couldn't connect. Fortunately, a stout defensive performance by New England was enough to get a 13-3 win, as Julian Edelman (10/141) and Rob Gronkowski (6/87) were the only Patriots to have more than 15 receiving yards. Hogan will enter unrestricted free agency, so it will be interesting to see what the team does at receiver.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught five passes for 45 yards in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

Like basically everyone for the Patriots, Hogan made a couple clutch grabs in a 37-31 overtime victory, including a diving one-handed grab that was upheld on review. New England will now play in their third Super Bowl in a row, this time against the up-and-coming Rams.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught three passes for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Hogan was targeted five times as he worked as New England's No. 2 receiver, and one of the incompletions was an underthrow that could have been a touchdown. We'll see if the former lacrosse player makes more of a statistical impact next Sunday against Kansas City.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught six passes for 64 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Hogan was targeted a team-high 11 times, as New England was likely trying to get him going before another playoff run. The veteran finishes the regular season with a 35/532/3 receiving line, and he will look to make a big impact starting in the AFC Divisional Round in a couple weeks.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan did not catch a pass in Week 16.

In Josh Gordon's first game out of the lineup for the Patriots, the team took a run-heavy approach against the Bills. Hogan will still be asked to make big plays for New England, especially with Gordon out, but he's incredibly difficult to trust in Week 17 fantasy lineups given his zero-point floor.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan scores long touchdown against the Steelers.

On the first offensive drive of the game for the Patriots, Hogan got free for a 63-yard touchdown on a deep crossing route where a bust in coverage left in wide-open for a walk-in touchdown. Overall, he had two receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown. He was open for another potential deep ball touchdown, but Tom Brady didn't put the pass quite on the mark for his receiver. Hogan faces his former Bills team next week, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups with titles on the line despite his big-play ability.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan did not catch a pass in Week 14.

Hogan hasn't been a reliable fantasy option since Josh Gordon's arrival, so he's difficult to trust during the fantasy playoffs. However, he next faces a Steelers team he torched for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the AFC Championship Game a couple of seasons ago. It's a different group on both sides, but perhaps he'll play well against them again in Week 15.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches two passes in Patriots' win.

Hogan gained 20 yards on his two receptions against the Vikings, getting involved early with a key 18-yard reception. Hogan's role simply isn't big enough for consistent fantasy value with Josh Gordon in the mix, but he's a team player that will step up when called upon.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches two passes in Week 12.

Hogan gained 47 yards on his two receptions against the Jets, making catches of 27 yards and 20 yards. Hogan can put up big numbers if he gets enough looks, but he's not currently a highly-recommended fantasy option as probably the No. 5 option in the passing game for New England.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan held without a catch in Week 10 loss.

It was the second game in a row that Hogan didn't record a reception, but he continues operating as a top-three receiver alongside Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. The hope is that Rob Gronkowski will open things up for everyone after the bye, but Hogan is nothing more than a big-play-dependent FLEX option with a zero-point floor down the stretch.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan didn't catch a pass in Week 9.

Hogan drew a pass interference call in the end zone to set up New England for a touchdown, but he didn't have any receptions against the Packers. Hogan's chance at potential high-end WR2 value basically went out the window after the trade for Josh Gordon, so he isn't a must-own in fantasy leagues despite a very promising outlook at the start of the season.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught two passes for 49 yards in Monday night's win over Buffalo.

Hogan was targeted just twice, but he continued to operate as the clear No. 3 receiver behind Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon, and his second reception was a 20-yard catch to set up a goal-line score by James White. There's been talk of New England acquiring a receiver ahead of tomorrow's trade deadline, but Hogan has been a solid complimentary piece that's made big plays in big moments. He's a decent flier next Sunday night against the Packers in what should be a shootout.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches six passes against the Bears.

Hogan followed up last week's season-high in yardage with a season-high in receptions this week, catching six passes for 63 yards in the Week 7 win. Hogan was mostly used as an inside target down the seam with no Rob Gronkowski in the game for the Patriots. Next Hogan faces the Bills, a team he had four receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown against in their second matchup last season.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches all four targets against the Chiefs.

Hogan gained 78 yards on his four receptions, including a key 42-yard reception down the field late in the game. Coming into the game, Hogan was listed as questionable with a thing injury, but he didn't show any limitations throughout the night. After not topping 50 yards in any of the first five games of the season, this game was an obvious positive for Hogan's outlook. And with Josh Gordon basically playing full-time now, Hogan still remained a big part of the offense. He's in the FLEX conversation for Week 7 against the Bears.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (thigh) is officially active for Week 6.

There was some concern about Hogan's status toward the end of the week, but he's in the lineup tonight against the Chiefs. It's a potential shootout, but there is some risk inserting him into fantasy lineups, as there's a chance he's at less than 100%.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Hogan was able to become a limited participant in today's practice after he missed yesterday's practice, and he's likely a true game-time decision for Sunday night against the Chiefs. You'll need a backup plan if you plan on inserting Hogan into your fantasy lineup, but overall he's a risky fantasy option at potentially less than 100% even if he is active for the game.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (thigh) did not practice today.

Hogan was limited in yesterday's practice, so this is a step in the wrong direction. It's also worth noting he was reportedly seen walking with a limp in the locker room. We'll see what happens tomorrow during practice and when the injury report for the game is released, but Hogan is trending towards potentially not playing on Sunday night against the Chiefs.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited in today's practice.

Hogan isn't believed to be dealing with anything serious, but this is worth noting nonetheless. We'll track Hogan's status leading up to the weekend.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught three passes for 34 yards in Thursday night's win over the Colts.

Hogan led New England's receivers in snaps with everyone at full strength for the first time in 2018, but it looks like Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, and James White are the favorites for Tom Brady. The only target that Hogan didn't bring in bounced off his hands and was intercepted, but the snap count was definitely encouraging for those holding out hope for Hogan, and we think he should remain rostered in all leagues. Next week could be a blowup spot against Kansas City's suspect secondary.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan held to one reception in win over the Dolphins.

It went for 25 yards. Hogan has largely been a disappointment outside of a couple late touchdowns against the Jaguars in Week 4, as he is on pace for a 36/436/8 line at the season's quarter mark. The hope is that Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman will open things up for Hogan, but the concern is that both Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson will remain involved. Consider the 29-year-old a risky FLEX option when the Colts come to town on Thursday night.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan held in check as Patriots fall to the Lions

Hogan caught three passes for 31 yards, with most of his production coming on a garbage-time reception for 16 yards. The Patriots were out of sync all night, and they will really benefit when Josh Gordon makes his team debut and Julian Edelman returns from suspension. Some think that will significantly hurt Hogan’s value, but we think he could benefit from operating as the team’s No. 3 receiver as he’s done in some huge playoff games over the past couple years. Next week in particular, Hogan could be in for a big afternoon if Gordon occupies top corner Xavien Howard.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan scores twice versus Jacksonville.

Hogan had a very difficult matchup with the Jags, but he came through with a couple of second-half touchdowns as New England attempted to stage a comeback. Hogan caught three passes for 42 yards and two touchdowns overall in the Week 2 loss. The first score was on a short post in the end zone for seven yards; and the second was a 29-yarder where Hogan got open in the middle of the field after a play-action and fake bubble screen, and he ran across to the other sideline for six. Hogan is a strong option in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches one pass in Week 1.

The lone reception went for 11 yards. Hogan was targeted five times by Tom Brady, but the two couldn't connect for much, just missing on a couple of occasions. One one throw in particular, Hogan was wide open and Brady appeared to be targeting him on what might have been a catch-and-run touchdown, but teammate Phillip Dorsett unknowingly jumped in front of the pass and caught it himself. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned after this one game, but next week against the Jaguars is a tough matchup.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan plays great in Super Bowl LII.

The Patriots fell to the Eagles in a shootout, but Hogan and the offense did their part in the game. Hogan caught six passes for 128 yards and one touchdown while also adding a four-yard carry. The touchdown was on a 26-yard pass where he easily beat Eagles safety Rodney McLeod, and Hogan also added a 43-yard reception on a deep ball. Next season, Hogan should remain a prominent member of New England's receiving corps.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches two passes as Patriots advance to Super Bowl LII.

Hogan was stuck on the right side of the formation matched up with Jalen Ramsey for much of the day, catching two passes for 20 yards. It appeared Hogan was clearly interfered with early in the game on a pass over the middle, but it wasn't called. Hogan will now be playing in the Super Bowl for the second straight season as New England faces the Eagles or Vikings in a couple of weeks.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan scores in playoff win over Tennessee.

It was a four-yard reception in the second quarter, which turned out to be his only catch of the game. Hogan should be more involved next week in the AFC Championship Game, especially if Pittsburgh ends up being the opponent with a win over Jacksonville on Sunday. Hogan missed the regular season matchup with the Steelers this season, but he torched them in last year's AFC Championship with 180 yards and two touchdowns.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan will play in the Divisional Round against the Titans.

Hogan, who missed seven of the last eight regular season games with a shoulder injury, is not listed on the injury report for Saturday's playoff game, and it looks like he's 100% heading into the matchup with Tennessee. This is great news for Tom Brady and the New England offense as the franchise looks to go on a another run and get its sixth Lombardi Trophy. Hogan is a good bet to slide right in as a full-time player for the Patriots, and he'll be a fine option for those playing fantasy playoff challenges.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) remains limited in practice.

Hogan has been limited the last two days, but there are reports that he'll be ready to go on Saturday. We would not lock it in quite yet, and we'll see how Hogan is listed on the official injury report when it is released tomorrow.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited in practice today.

Hogan is reportedly set to return after missing seven of the last eight games to end the regular season, but it'd be nice to see him get a full practice in before declaring him set to return. We'll update you on Hogan's practice status tomorrow to see where he's at.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out for Week 17.

Hogan was still only limited in practice all week, so this isn’t a surprise. We would anticipate Hogan being good to go for the playoffs, but it’s not lock. His regular season ends with 34 receptions for 439 yards and five touchdowns in nine games. When he returns for the playoffs, Hogan should step right back into a big role for the Patriots and could be a major difference-maker on another Super Bowl run.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is questionable for Week 17.

Hogan was limited in practice all week, which indicates he might not be ready to make his return. But the good news is he wasn't ruled out ahead of the weekend. It looks like he'll at least be ready for New England's first playoff game if he isn't ready this Sunday.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited in today's practice.

We'll see how Hogan is listed on the official injury report when it's released tomorrow, but he might not play if he doesn't get a full practice in.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited in practice today.

Hogan is apparently still not at 100%, and he probably won't play until he gets a full practice in. We'll check on Hogan throughout the week to see if he can work his way up to a full participation.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is inactive today against Buffalo.

This is Hogan's second missed game in a row, and he'll now miss six of the last seven games. Until his shoulder is closer to 100%, Hogan won't be out there for New England. He'd probably do well to be back for New England's first playoff game, but we'll see if he can get some fun practices in and give it a go for Week 17.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this week.

Hogan remained limited in practice all week, so we'd say he's probably unlikely to play on Christmas Eve against the Bills. It wouldn't be surprising if he did play, but the Patriots probably won't insert Hogan back into the lineup until he's able to practice fully.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited in practice today.

Hogan sat out last game despite playing in Week 14 against the Dolphins. Until Hogan is able to participate fully in practice, he might not be in the lineup for New England. It's still only Wednesday though, so he has time to work his way into a full practice.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is officially inactive for Week 15.

Reports emerged this morning stating that Hogan would not play against the Steelers, and now it’s official. His presence on the outside will certainly be missed, but the Patriots have been without him for four of the last five games. Kenny Britt is officially active in his first game with New England, and he could play a role, particularly in the red zone. Hopefully Hogan can get back to 100% soon.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is not expected to play today.

Hogan is listed and questionable and was presumed to be ready for later this afternoon against the Steelers, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Hogan is not expected to play. He didn’t look quite like himself in his first game back last week and was still limited in practice, so the Patriots look like they’re going to sit him out. This is a big loss for the team, as Hogan had 180 yards and two touchdowns in the AFC Championship against Pittsburgh last season, but the Patriots can overcome it. Newly-signed receiver Kenny Britt could be active for New England today, but he’d be a risky fantasy option.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this week.

Hogan was limited in practice all week, but he's a great bet to play on Sunday after he returned in Week 14. If there was a probable tag, Hogan would probably be listed as that. Still, we might not know for sure until 3:00 PM ET on Sunday. Assuming Hogan is active, he'd be a solid option against a team he torched in the AFC Championship game last season.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches only one pass in his return to the lineup.

Hogan gained only one yard on his lone reception after he missed the last four games with a shoulder injury. He didn't appear to be limited with the shoulder at all, despite having some sort of heating pad or something on it. Hogan did have a chance at a touchdown late in the game, but he couldn't get both feet down in the end zone. The teams are different, but Hogan had nine receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers in the AFC Championship last year, and he has a ton of upside against them next week.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is officially active for Week 14.

After missing the last four games while dealing with his shoulder injury, Hogan is back in the lineup for the Patriots. Before his injury suffered back in Week 8, Hogan was on pace for ten touchdowns this season. In a great offense with the league’s best player throwing him the ball, Hogan immediately becomes a solid option in fantasy lineups and could be a major difference-maker down the stretch for teams in the fantasy playoffs.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is expected to play tonight, according to multiple reports.

Reporters are speculating as well as anyone could, as Hogan has made the trip to Miami and seems poised to return after missing the last four games with his shoulder injury. Check back in tonight at around 7:00 PM ET, but expect Hogan to be in the lineup—and a solid fantasy option—against the Dolphins.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is questionable for Monday night.

Hogan was able to get in three limited participation this week after not practicing in each of the last four weeks after the team's Week 9 bye week, so he's at least making progress and appears to have a shot at playing this week. However, the Patriots are unlikely to offer much of an update ahead of Monday night, so you'll need to have a backup option from that game if you're planning on inserting Hogan into your lineup. If active, Hogan would immediately be a good option in fantasy lineups, as he's in one of the league's best offenses with Tom Brady throwing to him.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) remains limited in practice.

Hogan's been limited all week and should have a good chance to play on Monday night, but it'd be ideal to see him get in a full practice tomorrow. Either way, we'll see how he's listed when the official injury report for the game is released sometime tomorrow.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) was officially limited in practice today.

It's good to see Hogan officially listed as a participant in practice, but it'd be nice to see him get a full practice in ahead of Monday's game against the Dolphins. Check back in on his Friday practice status tomorrow.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) returned to practice today.

The Patriots didn't have an official practice where they had to list Hogan's participation, but he was indeed out there after missing the last four weeks of practice while dealing with his shoulder injury. We'll see if Hogan is a limited or full participant in tomorrow's practice, but it looks like he has a real shot of returning this Monday against the Dolphins.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out for Week 13.

Hogan didn't practice at all again this week, so he's obviously not playing on Sunday against the Bills. Not practicing even on a limited basis indicates Hogan might not be ready for Week 14 either. New England's next game is a Monday nighter, so there's a chance you won't have clarity on Hogan's status until all the other games from Week 14 are played. Fantasy owners would do well to get the Pats receiver back for the playoffs next week.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is still not practicing.

Considering it's Thursday and Hogan hasn't had practice reps in a few weeks, it'd be a big surprise if he played this Sunday. However, a limited practice tomorrow would at least be a good sign for his Week 14 status. For this week, Hogan might ultimately be ruled out ahead of the weekend again.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

Hogan has missed the last three games with his shoulder injury, so he might be close to a return. It's only Wednesday, so we'll see if he's able to get out there for tomorrow's practice. If not, he probably will miss his fourth-straight game.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) will not play this Sunday.

This will be the third straight misses game for Hogan, who still hasn't been able to practice over the last few weeks while dealing with the shoulder injury. The Patriots really don't need to rush Hogan back, despite him being a very good player and key member of the offense, as other players will continue to pick up the slack for him. Consider him questionable for Week 13 versus Buffalo.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

It's very unlikely Hogan is able to play this Sunday against the Dolphins, but we'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow. The Patriots might rule Hogan out ahead of the weekend.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, but this isn't a great start to the week for the Patriots receiver. He'll need practice reps to play, and it looks like he'll probably miss his third game in a row this Sunday against the Dolphins, but we'll update you on his practice status throughout the week.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 11.

Hogan didn’t practice all week again, so he won’t be out there on Sunday in Mexico against the Raiders. This is the second straight missed game for Hogan, who is dealing with a multi-week injury. There’s a chance he’s ready for Week 12 against the Dolphins, but for now, consider him questionable at best. Phillip Dorsett will again fill in with a bigger role, and Rex Burkhead should have another sizable role as a receiver too.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

After not practicing all of last week before missing Sunday against the Broncos, Hogan didn't practice either yesterday or today and is looking doubtful for Week 11 versus the Raiders. The official injury report for the game will be released sometime tomorrow, and it's possible Hogan is ruled out ahead of the weekend like he was last Friday.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, but Hogan might be a long shot this week while still dealing with his shoulder injury. The Patriots aren't going to rush him back if he's not healthy enough to be on the field, and he won't play if he doesn't practice. For now, expect New England to be without Hogan in Mexico against the Raiders on Sunday, but check in on his status throughout the week.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 10.

Hogan didn't practice all week, so it was fully expected that New England would not play him on Sunday night versus Denver. This is a big loss for the Pats, but they'll figure something out to make up for not having Hogan on offense. Phillip Dorsett could be in line for more snaps, but he's not a recommended fantasy option against the Broncos. Tight end Rob Gronkowski should be a lock for at least 10+ targets on Sunday night. Consider Hogan questionable for Week 11 against the Raiders.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) missed practice again.

Hogan is looking doubtful for Sunday night against the Broncos, and it's possible he's ruled out tomorrow. If he doesn't practice, he probably will be ruled out ahead of the weekend.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice today.

Hogan is looking very iffy for Sunday, but he's a tough guy that might battle through it and play against the Broncos if at all possible. If he doesn't practice this week, it's unlikely the Patriots will play him, though, so keep an eye on his practice status tomorrow and Friday. Phillip Dorsett would likely see an increase in snaps if Hogan misses the game.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan leaves Patriots game with apparent arm injury.

Hogan caught a short pass over the middle and took a helmet directly on his right arm late in the fourth quarter. He was down for a while before walking off the field while noticeably hanging his arm. Hogan is headed to the locker room and his day is likely over—and while the hit was to his upper bicep area, that can still be broken. We'll update you as we learn more about this injury. He had five receptions for 60 yards before leaving the game.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught four passes for 71 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Hogan briefly left the game and went to the medical tent, but he was back in as the Patriots handled Atlanta 23-7. Had the Falcons been able to keep up, it could have been a big game for Hogan and the offense, but it didn't happen. He'll at least be a high-end WR2 option against the Chargers in Week 8, especially if Casey Hayward shadows Brandin Cooks.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches one pass in Week 6.

Hogan had a 19-yard reception on four targets against the Jets. He briefly left the game to get checked out for a shot to the rib area, but Hogan returned to the game and should be fine moving forward. Hogan, who was putting up monster numbers from Weeks 2-5, should bounce back against the Falcons next week.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan is back in the game.

Hogan went out for a few plays after taking a shot to the rib area, but he's thankfully back out there before the end of the first half with the Patriots down by seven.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan heads to the locker room with injury against the Jets.

On a pass over the middle late in the second quarter, Hogan took a shot to the rib area and was headed to either the tent or the locker room. Hogan is a tough player that probably isn't going to make injuries look worse than they are, so this might be it for him today.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan gets team-high 11 targets in Week 5.

Hogan worked as Tom Brady's top target in the game, grabbing eight passes for 74 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay. The touchdown was New England's only of the game, and it was on a five-yard curl that was caught right at the goal line. On the first drive of the game, Hogan was wide open on a route over the middle, but Brady surprisingly misfired and it was intercepted. Still, it was a big game for Hogan, who now has five touchdowns this season and has been putting up great numbers since Week 1. He might be the best Patriots receiver to own in fantasy leagues.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan scores fourth touchdown of the year in Week 4.

Hogan was again a great target for Tom Brady, catching five of nine targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the loss to Carolina. Hogan's touchdown was a two-yarded on a nice in-breaking route where Brady threw a precise pass to the back of the end zone. After his subpar Week 1 in which he was matched up with Marcus Peters for much of the night, Hogan's stat lines are 5/78/1, 4/68/2, and 5/60/1. He's looking like a great WR2 right now.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches two touchdown in Week 3.

Hogan caught two of the first three touchdowns for New England, with the first coming on a wide open crossing route off a play-action fake and the second coming on a 47-yard post route where he was also wide open down the middle of the field. He had four receptions for 68 yards and two touchdowns total in the game. Hogan obviously offers a lot of upside each week, including Week 4 against Carolina.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught five passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Hogan's score came on a 13-yard pass in the first quarter. Hopefully you didn't give up on him after a quiet Week 1, as Hogan is a key part of the Patriots offense. He's a solid FLEX option in Week 3 against the Texans injured secondary.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches only one pass in opening game of the season.

Hogan was targeted five times by Tom Brady, including a few times deep, but he only had one reception for eight yards. The Patriots did get the ball in Hogan's hands on some reverses, and the had three carries for 17 yards. Marcus Peters was on Hogan for much of the night, so he'll have a better matchup next Sunday against the Saints.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches two TDs in Patriots' preseason game.

Hogan caught four-of-four targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns from Tom Brady in the exhibition against the Lions. The first touchdown came on a zig route on the opening drive, and the second came on a perfect deep ball in the end zone from Brady. Unfortunately, Julian Edelman suffered a knee injury in the game and the extent of the injury is unknown. Hogan might be in line for more targets and more time on the inside if Edelman misses any time. Despite his strong finish to last season, Hogan is going undrafted in almost all fantasy leagues.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

It was "commonplace" to see Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, and Chris Hogan in three recevier sets during minicamp, according to Mike Reiss.

Cooks and Edelman are almost certainly going to be the most-used receivers in three receiver sets, but it was unclear who else would get the most playing time on the outside out of Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. They both became good targets for Tom Brady last season, especially during the playoff run. It looks like the veteran Hogan has the advantage to start in three receiver sets which isn't surprising, considering he averaged 17.9 yards per reception last season and is entering his fifth year in the league. But the second-year receiver Mitchell will certainly have a role in the offense too. There are a lot of weapons for New England, but both Hogan and Mitchell are solid late round picks in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan catches four passes for 57 yards in Super Bowl.

Hogan couldn't come down with a couple deep passes that he normally grabs, but he'll be happy with the Super Bowl victory. He was a great option for the Patriots in his first year with the team. Hogan is a very versatile and underrated player by many people. He is worth selecting in 2017 fantasy drafts as one of Tom Brady's receivers.

Chris Hogan (knee) limited in Patriots practice.

He won't have a problem this Sunday in the Super Bowl. Fresh off a great performance in the AFC Championship, Hogan will be a key part of the Pats attack against Atlanta.

Chris Hogan goes off in AFC Championship win.

Hogan had the exact same stats as the Falcons' Julio Jones earlier in the day: nine receptions (12 targets) for 180 yards and two touchdowns. One his first touchdown, Hogan was wide open in the endzone and Brady found him. The next touchdown was on a flea flicker and Hogan got behind safety Mike Mitchell easily. Hogan has obviously been a great signing by New England, and he's part of why they're in Super Bowl LI.

Chris Hogan catches all four targets in playoff victory.

Hogan had four receptions for 95 yards versus the Texans. Hogan also drew a pass interference on a deep ball early in the game. He's been a great pickup and reliable target for Tom Brady. Hogan left the game late with an injury, but he'll be fine for next Sunday with a Super Bowl trip on the line.

Chris Hogan held to one catch in easy win.

It went for 22 yards, and Hogan was second on the team with five targets. The former Lacrosse player continues to see the most playing time out of New England's receivers, so he's always a good fantasy player. The Patriots play Miami in Week 17.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught one pass for 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Hogan was targeted just twice as New England went to the running game and attacked through the air with Julian Edelman. He should bounce back next week against the Jets on Christmas Eve. Consider him a FLEX option.

Chris Hogan catches 79-yard touchdown on MNF.

Hogan finished with five catches for 129 yards and the score in the 30-23 win over the Ravens. With the Ravens within three points in the 4th quarter, Hogan ran a seam route through the middle of the Baltimore defense and Tom Brady threw a perfect pass for the 79-yard touchdown to end the Ravens' momentum. Hogan was targeted seven times in the game and sees the most playing time out of all Patriots wideouts; that gives him FLEX consideration every week, even against Denver in Week 15.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught four passes for 23 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's win.

Hogan's touchdown was a beautiful back-shoulder pass from the now-winningest quarterback in NFL history. A big-time role in arguably the best offense in the league, Hogan is worth a fantasy start in any given week, but there are probably more consistent options if you're team is healthy and in the fantasy playoffs.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan (back) listed as questionable for Week 13.

He was a limited participant in practice all week. He is likely a true questionable, but is expected to play after he returned last week after a one game absence. Hogan isn't a bad FLEX option in the New England offense.

Chris Hogan | Panthers WR

Chris Hogan caught four passes for 70 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Thrusted right back into the action upon returning from his back injury, Hogan actually led the Patriots wideouts with 92% of the snaps. With that kind of usage and Tom Brady throwing the ball, you could do worse for a desperation play at WR or FLEX.
