Hogan reeled in six of his team-high 11 targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Jets. With Josh Gordon (suspension) no longer in the mix and Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) inactive, Hogan was busy Sunday after not being targeted in Week 16. Assuming Patterson is back for the Patriots' playoff opener, there will be another mouth to feed in the New England offense, but Hogan should see plenty of snaps, in any case. His fantasy upside remains tied to game script/flow, however, on the heels of a regular season in which the 30-year-old logged 35 catches (on 55 targets) for 532 yards and three TDs.
Hogan was not targeted in Sunday's 24-12 win over the Bills. Though Hogan started and was on the field for 62 of the Patriots' 75 snaps on offense Sunday, he was not one of the two wide receivers (Julian Edelman and Cordarrelle Patterson) targeted by QB Tom Brady in Week 16. Looking ahead, Hogan figures to log plenty of snaps in the absence of Josh Gordon, but a lack of steady volume makes him a hit-or-miss fantasy option.
Hogan caught two of his three targets for 68 yards -- including a 63-yard TD -- in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers. As has been the case of late, Hogan -- who was on the field for 39 of 62 plays on offense Sunday -- was out-snapped by fellow receivers Julian Edelman (58) and Josh Gordon (57). Hogan's fantasy stat line Week 15 was salvaged by his big play, but it'll be tough to count on those arriving on a weekly basis, given that New England QB Tom Brady has so many options in the passing game.
Hogan was on the field for 34 of a possible 82 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins. Hogan, who once again was out-snapped by fellow receivers Julian Edelman (75) and Josh Gordon (71), did not haul in his only target Sunday. He's still capable of making the occasional big play, but in his current role in the New England offense, Hogan is largely off the fantasy radar.
Hogan was on the field for 32 out of a possible 74 snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings, en route to catching both of his targets for 20 yards. That's five straight two-target games for Hogan, whose fantasy upside is capped by the presence and productivity of fellow receivers Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon.
