Hollister finished the 2018 season with four catches on five targets for 52 yards in eight games.
Injuries marred Hollister's campaign, but he's under contract with the Patriots through 2019 and is thus poised to have an opportunity to secure a role as a depth tight end with the team next season. The 25-year-old has some pass-catching upside, but he'll need to find a way to stay on the field more going forward in order for that to translate into any degree of fantasy utility.
Hollister (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Hollister will now miss his seventh game of the season due to injury. Dwayne Allen (knee) could see a slight uptick in snaps in Hollister's absence.
Hollister (hamstring) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Hollister has missed six games due to injury this season and was a healthy scratch for another. The second-year pro has not been targeted since Week 10 and only played on special teams during Sunday's 24-12 win over the Bills. If Hollister is unable to suit up for New England's season finale against the Jets, the Patriots' offense will likely remain unaffected.
In the process, Hollister hauled in one of his two targets for 17 yards. The Patriots are on bye Week 11, so both Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle) and Dwayne Allen (knee) have some added time to manage their current injuries. If, however, their issues linger, Hollister's profile in the New England offense could potentially expand Week 12.
