  Panthers | Chris Hogan getting closer to return    Sat Nov 9, 10:26 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Chris Hogan (knee) worked on the side after participating in individual drills Wednesday, Nov. 6. He is currently on the Reserve/Injured list but is eligible to return later this season.

Footballguys view: The earliest he could be back is Week 13. The Panthers weren't getting much from Hogan before this injury, but we'll see if they choose to make him a 'designated to return' player from IR.

  Panthers | Chris Hogan playing well    Fri May 24, 11:55 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Chris Hogan has been 'making plays' down the field during OTAs, according to Bryan Strickland of Panthers.com.

Footballguys view: Hogan could make Torrey Smith look very overpriced at five million dollars if he impresses enough to win the #3 wide receiver job. He is signed for a fraction of the price at only 1.45 million dollars with a max value of two million.

  Panthers | Chris Hogan signs with Panthers    Fri Apr 12, 10:43 AM

Free-agent WR Chris Hogan (Patriots) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Friday, April 12. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Hogan could come in and do the same thing he did for the Patriots...catch around 35 passes and work as a deep threat. We're not excited about his fantasy prospects as Hogan is buried on the Panthers depth chart.

Impending free-agent Chris Hogan (Patriots) disappointed in 2018, but 'it sounds like teams around the NFL are not turned off' and give the New England Patriots 'some competition' if they want to bring him back, according to NESN.com's Doug Kyed.

  Patriots | Several veterans may depart    Fri Feb 8, 01:22 AM

New England Patriots WRs Cordarrelle Patterson and Chris Hogan could be allowed to leave via free agency, in the opinion of Forbes' J.P. Pelzman, who also believes the team could release LB Dont'a Hightower and S Devin McCourty to free up more than $15 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: OverTheCap.com currently lists the Patriots near the bottom of the NFL with only $17.8 million in cap space at this time. They could make some moves in order to keep some of their own key free agents.

  Giants | NYG may consider Chris Hogan    Sun Jan 27, 06:34 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Chris Hogan could be an option for the New York Giants in free agency, in the opinion of SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

Footballguys view: Hogan could also be an option for the Dolphins if they hire Brian Flores and he brings along Chad O'Shea to coordinate the offense. He has made more contributions recent and should generate some interest on a short deal.

  Lions | Detroit to pursue slot receivers?    Fri Jan 25, 09:31 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley and WR Tavon Austin and New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson and WR Chris Hogan could be options for the Detroit Lions in free agency, according to Nate Atkins of MLive.com. Atkins believes the Lions will want a veteran presence in the slot to pair with WR Kenny Golladay.

Footballguys view: Those players are all options for the Lions this offseason. They'll need a slot receiver to work underneath routes like Golden Tate used to. In fact, there is speculation that Tate might be on their radar to return in free agency after they traded him to the Eagles last season.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan racks up six catches    Sun Oct 21, 06:34 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan finished with six receptions for 63 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Hogan had a larger role with Rob Gronkowski out, but wasn't a real fantasy difference maker. He might be worth bye/injury WR3/Flex looks against his old Bills team next week in deeper leagues, but he isn't an essential hold right now.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan expected to play    Fri Oct 12, 06:19 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) is expected to be cleared to play in the Week 6 game, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This makes starting Josh Gordon a little dicier with Hogan being almost a full-time player and limiting Gordon's snaps and opportunities. Hogan is barely rosterable, but he is an impediment to value growth for other wide receivers on the roster.

  Patriots | New England's injury report for Week 6    Fri Oct 12, 04:05 PM

Footballguys view: Gronkowski, Gordon, and Michel should be ok, but this being a Sunday night game complicates matters. We expect to hear more about their status on Sunday morning, but for now play them as you normally would.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan headed for big game?    Thu Sep 6, 10:10 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan faces the Houston Texans in Week 1, and Hogan caught four passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans last season.

Footballguys view: Hogan may get a lot of snaps in the slot, which is actually where the Texans best pass defenders reside. It could be a big day for Rob Gronkowski and the Patriots receiving running backs.

  Patriots | Five grabs for Chris Hogan    Thu Aug 16, 10:26 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught five passes on seven targets for 25 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Hogan's yards per catch won't blow anyone away, but a high volume of targets from the slot to open the season with the backfield banged up could easily be in his future. His ADP should go up after this performance.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan begins extension talks    Thu Aug 16, 03:21 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan has started contract extension talks with the Patriots, but the two sides are a bit too far apart at this time, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Monmouth's pride and joy has played well enough for a little money from the club. His health needs to be consistent, but we don't think the offense will shift so far away from him that his ADP as 29th receiver off the board is out of line.

  Patriots | New England leaning on Chris Hogan    Thu Jun 14, 11:05 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan will be asked to shoulder a bigger load in the offense in 2018.

Footballguys view: Hogan could be a huge play for fantasy owners over the first month of the season while Julian Edelman serves his four-game suspension. After that, Hogan could continue to be a strong play in PPR formats. Hogan has a current ADP of WR27 (6.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan removed from injury report    Thu Jan 11, 04:15 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, and has been removed from the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Great news for a guy who could be in for a very good week. Tennessee is Football Outsiders' 24th ranked pass defense according to their DVOA metric. While Brandon Cooks and Rob Gronkowski are Tom Brady's first and first-adjacent choices, Hogan could be in line for borderline WR1/WR2 numbers this week as the defense shifts its attention to the other two targets, leaving Hogan in single coverage.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan listed as limited    Wed Jan 10, 05:45 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: It looks like Hogan is going to return for the Divisional Round game against the Titans. Hogan could be limited as the team has other returning, pass-catching weapons like RBs James White and Rex Burkhead who could be more involved when the team goes through the air.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited in practice Tuesday, Jan. 9. He is expected to return to action this weekend against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Hogan has missed seven of the final eight games of the regular season for the Patriots, and the last time we saw him was in Week 14 against the Dolphins when he had one catch for one yard. We'll see if he can practice fully later in the week.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he is questionable for Week 17 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Hogan has been in this pattern for the last two weeks, and has not been active on game days. The Patriots could get his balky shoulder two more weeks of rest before the divisional round if they sit him this week.

Footballguys view: White could return this week with Gillislee out, but the Patriots lead back should be Dion Lewis once again this week.
