Hogan caught all four of his targets for 78 yards in Sunday's 43-40 win over the Chiefs. Hogan, who came into the game nursing a thigh issue, was on the field for 47 (of a possible) 78 plays on offense, and was notably out-snapped by both Julian Edelman (71) and Josh Gordon (63). With so many mouths to feed in the offense, steady weekly volume may not always be there for Hogan, but he remains a trusted weapon for QB Tom Brady and his field-stretching ability still yields occasional big plays, such as the key 42-yard grab he made in the fourth quarter Sunday.
Hogan (thigh) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. Hogan is out there if you need him Sunday, but the presence of slot maven Julian Edelman and the Patriots' recent addition of Josh Gordon (hamstring) make it difficult to count on steady weekly volume for Hogan in the New England offense.
Hogan (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs after returning to a limited practice Friday. Hogan was rested Thursday, but his return to practice Friday is promising, with Jeff Howe of The Athletic noting that the wideout is expected to be cleared for Week 6 action. The Patriots' 8:20 PM ET kickoff is an issue for those considering Hogan this week, as is the presence of slot ace Julian Edelman along with the recent addition of Josh Gordon (hamstring). Hogan figures to see his share of snaps when healthy, but steady volume will be an issue with so many mouths to feed in the New England offense.
Hogan (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Kevin Duffy of MassLive.com reports. Hogan was limited Wednesday, so the downgrade in participation is notable when coupled with the fact that he was the only player listed by New England on Thursday as a non-participant. We'll check back on his status Friday, but if Hogan is limited or out Sunday against the Chiefs, added snaps would open up for Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett.
Hogan was limited at practice Wednesday due to a thigh injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Hogan logged 63 of the Patriots' 69 offensive snaps in the 38-24 win over the Colts in Week 5, so his limitations were likely maintenance-related. Of more concern with regard to Hogan's fantasy prospects Week 6 against the Chiefs is his target share. The Patriots kept Julian Edelman highly involved in his return from a four-game suspension last week, while recent trade acquisition Josh Gordon is continuing to gain more experience with the team's offense.
