  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Catches three passes in loss

    Hodge caught three of six targets for 60 yards during Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Vikings.

    With Drake London (groin) sidelined and Mack Hollins (ankle) leaving the contest early, Hodge played the most offensive snaps (46) among Atlanta's wideouts. Hodge also paced the group in receiving yards, though tight end Jonnu Smith led the team in receptions and yards through the air. After a quiet start to the season (five receptions on six targets for 64 yards across the first seven games), Hodge has secured six of nine targets for 135 yards over the last two weeks. While that's not prolific production, Hodge has clearly seen an uptick in usage and production since London got hurt. As long as London and Hollins remain banged-up or out, Hodge should be on fantasy radars.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Leads team in receiving

    Hodge caught all three of his targets for 75 yards during Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans.

    All three of Hodge's targets came in the second half with Taylor Heinicke at the helm. The wideout's first catch was good for a first down on a third-and-13, and his second was a 52-yard strike that set up Atlanta's first touchdown. Hodge caught just five of his six targets for 64 yards across seven games with Desmond Ridder at quarterback, but he appears to have better chemistry with the backup. If Drake London (groin) is sidelined moving forward and Heinicke takes over as the starter, Hodge could see an uptick in volume, but his fantasy value probably remains limited in Atlanta's stagnant offense.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: One catch in win

    Hodge caught his only target for 19 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Buccaneers.

    Hodge played the fewest offensive snaps (12) of any Falcons wideout, and his 19 yards in the contest matched his season high. The veteran has now totaled just five catches on six targets for 64 yards through seven games of the 2023 campaign. With limited opportunities in Atlanta's offense, Hodge should continue to remain off the fantasy radar when the Falcons visit the Titans in Week 8.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Garners one target

    Hodge failed to secure his only target during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders.

    After Drake London (68), Hodge (29) saw the most snaps among Atlanta's wideouts, though there wasn't much discrepancy between them as Mack Hollins (28), Scotty Miller (28) and Van Jefferson (22) all saw similar playing time. As long as there's this much competition, it'll be difficult for any of the aforementioned pass catchers to garner consistent roles. Hodge has just four receptions (five targets) for 45 yards across six appearances this season.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Two touches in win

    Hodge caught his only target for 11 yards and rushed once for zero yards during Sunday's 21-19 win over the Texans.

    Hodge caught a first-down pass on a 2nd-and-10 play in the second quarter, but he wasn't targeted in the pass game the rest of the day. The Falcons tried to get him involved in the red zone on a designed running play early in the fourth quarter, but he couldn't handle a direct snap cleanly. Hodge's role continues to increase each week -- he played a season-high 36 offensive snaps versus Houston -- but he's yet to see more than two touches in a game this year.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: First multi-catch game of 2023

    Hodge caught both of his targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 23-7 loss to Jacksonville.

    Hodge didn't record a target across 16 offensive snaps over the first two games of the season, but he's been more involved the last two weeks, totaling three receptions (three targets) for 34 yards across 26 offensive snaps. While Hodge's production has increased, it's been in modest increments, and it's been difficult for fantasy managers to trust any Falcons pass catchers thus far.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Catches first pass of 2023

    Hodge caught his only target for 15 yards during Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Lions.

    Hodge played 16 offensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season and was held without a catch. However, he got on the board in Week 3, securing a first-down grab late in the fourth quarter. Hodge has been playing more on special teams than he has on offense to begin 2023, so he currently doesn't hold much fantasy value.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Non-factor in Week 1

    Hodge (ankle) played 20 snaps (seven offensive) and didn't record any counting stats during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Panthers.

    Despite logging back-to-back full sessions to end the practice week, Hodge was questionable heading into the contest due to an ankle injury. He was cleared ahead of kickoff but didn't make an impact. Hodge's seven offensive snaps were the fewest among Atlanta's wideouts who actually saw action, trailing Drake London (47), Mack Hollins (33) and Scotty Miller (10).

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Will play Week 1

    Hodge (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    After being limited Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Hodge logged back-to-back full sessions to end the week. However, the depth wideout still received a questionable tag. It's not surprising to see the veteran cleared, but he'll presumably play the majority of his snaps on special teams while Drake London, Mack Hollins and Scotty Miller handle most of the wideout snaps.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Listed as questionable for Week 1

    Hodge (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    A key special-teams contributor and backup wideout, Hodge was limited in Wednesday's practice before being upgraded to full Thursday and Friday.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Back to fully practicing

    Hodge (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday ahead of Sunday's game versus Carolina, Scott Blair of the Falcons' official site reports.

    After progressing from missing practice Monday to registering a limited practice Wednesday, Hodge was back up to full speed Thursday. He figures to run primarily out of the slot for Atlanta again in 2023 and will try to improve on the 20 targets he drew a season ago.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Limited practice Wednesday

    Hodge (ankle) was a limited participant at the Falcons' practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of the team's official website reports.

    Hodge was a non-participant to open the week, so Wednesday's limited practice opens the door for him to be active Sunday versus the Panthers. The wide receiver is expected to operate as an option out of the slot once healthy.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Not practicing Monday

    Hodge (ankle) did not practice Monday, D.Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Hodge has been unable to participate in football activities since sustaining an ankle injury during the second week of preseason. If Hodge were unable to go for the Week 1 matchup versus Carolina, his absence would create a vacancy in the slot that second-year receiver Josh Ali is suited to fill.
