  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Bolsters Falcons WR corps

    The Falcons have signed Hodge to a one-year contract.

    In 16 games with the Lions last season, the 27-year-old recorded 13 receptions on 27 targets for 157 yards. Hodge joins an Atlanta wideout corps currently headed by Olamide Zaccheaus, but the team is far from done in terms of adding depth at the position. With that in mind, it remains to be seen where Hodge settles into the equation for targets, but as things stand, he should have an opportunity to compete for a role in the Falcons offense, which is now helmed by QB Marcus Mariota.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Small offensive role in finale

    Hodge logged eight offensive snaps during Sunday's 37-30 win over the Packers.

    After a big day in Seattle in Week 17, Hodge returned to more of a special-teams role with Josh Reynolds reinstated from the COVID list. This was nothing new for him, considering he only topped 13 percent of the offensive snaps in one game following Detroit's Week 9 bye. As a result, Hodge will finish the 2021 campaign with 13 receptions on 27 targets for 157 scoreless yards. The Alcorn State product is now set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year with no certainty that he will return to Detroit in 2022.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Second-leading receiver

    Hodge caught five passes for 76 yards on 10 targets against Seattle on Sunday.

    The 76 yards are a career high for Hodge, who stepped into a starting role with Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond unavailable. Those two will both return to the starting lineup once they're cleared to return to the field, but Hodge probably solidified himself as Detroit's fourth option in the wide-receiver rotation as the Lions prepare to face Green Bay in Week 18.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Could get larger role Week 17

    Hodge is expected to see an increased role within Detroit's receiving corps Sunday against the Seahawks with both Josh Reynolds (illness) and Kalif Raymond (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    No. 1 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown and running backs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams are probably the safest bets to earn targets from quarterback Tim Boyle, but the likes of Hodge, Tom Kennedy, Trinity Benson and Javon McKinley could all see increased snaps with two starting receivers out of the lineup. Since Detroit's Week 9 bye, Hodge hasn't logged more than 13 percent of the Lions' offensive snaps in any of the team's seven games, turning in just two receptions for 30 yards on three targets.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Cleared for Week 13

    Hodge (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hodge's non-COVID illness kept him from practicing Wednesday and limited his participation Thursday, but he was feeling better Friday and went through a full practice. He'll occupy his usual depth role in Detroit's receiving corps against the Vikings in Week 13.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Limited Thursday

    Hodge (illness) was limited in Thursday's practice.

    This is a step up for Hodge, who was unable to practice Wednesday as the Lions prepare to face Minnesota on Sunday. Hodge has just six catches this season as a depth piece in the Lions' putrid passing attack.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Catchless against Eagles

    Hodge was targeted twice but he did not record a catch during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Eagles.

    Hodge continues to serve in a complementary role on one of the worst offenses in the league. He'll remain a fantasy afterthought once Detroit returns from its Week 9 bye.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Little output against Rams

    Hodge secured his only target for three yards during Sunday's 28-19 loss to the Rams.

    Hodge and Geronimo Allison clearly ran behind Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown, but Raymond was the only one to see more than two targets. Even with Quintez Cephus (collarbone) and Tyrell Williams (concussion) on IR, Hodge remains a long shot to become a consistent fantasy contributor in practically any format.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Snags go-ahead two-point conversion

    Hodge caught one of five targets for 17 yards plus one two-point conversion during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Minnesota.

    Hodge wasn't able to do much with the bump in targets he saw with Quintez Cephus (shoulder) sidelined, but he made up for it with a reception on a go-ahead two-point conversion with under a minute remaining. If Cephus misses time and Tyrell Williams (concussion) remains sidelined, Hodge could be a bigger part of the rotation in Week 6 against the Bengals.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Snags another pass

    Hodge secured his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's 24-14 loss to Chicago.

    Hodge saw most of his playing time on special teams and is nothing more than a depth option at wide receiver.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Catches one pass

    Hodge caught one pass for nine yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    Hodge only saw five offensive snaps compared to 18 on special teams, where he operated as a gunner now that Bobby Price is taking on an expanded role defensively. Most of Hodge's value will continue to come on special teams and it's unlikely that will change unless more receivers join Tyrell Williams (concussion) on the injury report.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: No snaps on offense

    Hodge logged 14 snaps on special teams during Monday's 35-17 loss to Green Bay.

    After being a healthy scratch in Week 1, Hodge was active Monday but he didn't see any snaps on offense despite the absence of Tyrell Williams (concussion).

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Healthy scratch Week 1

    Hodge is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Lions thought enough of Hodge to put in a waiver claim for him when Cleveland cut him loose at the conclusion of the preseason, but the 26-year-old will open the season behind starters Tyrell Williams, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond and backups Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson on the depth chart at receiver. Even on the occasions he's active this season, Hodge is unlikely to be a high-priority option in the passing game.

  • Lions' KhaDarel Hodge: Claimed by Detroit

    The Loins claimed Hodge off waivers Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Hodge was Cleveland's No. 3 receiver for part of last season, and he now finds himself on arguably the weakest receiver depth chart in the league. Of course, he was waived for a reason, and he's caught only 17 passes in 39 regular-season games. Hodge most likely will be a backup and special-teams player, even with the receiver-needy Lions.

  • KhaDarel Hodge: Let go by Cleveland

    Hodge has been waived by the Browns, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Hodge is the odd man out after falling behind Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins and rookie Anthony Schwartz in the team's wideout mix. The report notes that the Browns hope to bring Hodge back in some capacity if he clears waivers.

  • Browns' KhaDarel Hodge: Scores for second straight week

    Hodge caught two of three targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Falcons in preseason Week 3.

    Hodge is perceived to be on the bubble, but he scored touchdowns in each of the final two preseason games. Last week, he made a contested catch on fourth down in the red zone from backup quarterback Case Keenum, then Sunday he and starting quarterback Baker Mayfield hooked up on a 22-yarder on the team's second drive. Hodge's special-teams credentials are hard to ignore, but there are five receivers ahead of him in the wideout mix. Rashard Higgins (leg) remains dinged up, and rookie Anthony Schwartz had just five practices during preseason, so there could be an opportunity for him to start the regular season on the 53-man roster.
