From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): Hogan wasn't a big part of the pass offense against the Jags, but he got two scores and ended up putting up a good week in a very tough matchup. He'll be worth a WR3/Flex play against the Lions. Josh Gordon's arrival could eventually cut into his targets and lower his weekly floor, but we'll worry about that if Gordon clicks with the Patriots organization.

Week 3: at Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Great matchup. Tom Brady still presides over an elite, dynamic passing game, one capable of massive volume and efficiency on any given week. But as presently constructed, this isn't a matchup-busting unit. Brady's receiving corps has been ravaged by injury and suspension, leaving him with little real explosiveness beyond Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan. Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson are ideally slot and gadget types, and with his tackles looking shaky, Brady has little opportunity to uncork down the field. That could change before too long with Josh Gordon in the fold, but six days post-trade may be asking a bit much in this offense. He'll likely see 20-25 snaps Sunday and be given at least one opportunity to win a downfield ball, though. As for Gronkowski, he remains wildly dynamic and almost impossible to keep off the stat sheet. He's routinely Brady's first read on downfield routes, and he's still dominating linebackers and safeties up the seams. The Detroit pass defense hasn't been tested much here in 2018, with opponents spending most of their time in clock-grinding mode. But there's trouble afoot, as this isn't a unit to fear from virtually any angle. The secondary generally isn't bad, stocked with a shutdown type in Darius Slay a ballhawking centerfielder in Glover Quin. But there's little pass rush beyond Ezekiel Ansah to truly pressure a pocket, so those strong defenders are exposed too often. And Slay may not suit up Sunday after being concussed in Week 2. Handing Tom Brady this matchup with Slay on the sideline would be almost unfair, and would make for arguably the week's biggest mismatch.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs JAX (5 / 3 / 42 / 2 rec)

Though the stat line may be misleading at first glance, Hogan wasn't targeted heavily during the game. Part of it was good defense/lack of separation, and part was pressure from the defensive pass rush. Either way, he did salvage two scores. The first was a short in route from the 7 yard line, while the second saw him wide open on a small slant with open road ahead. Hogan still hasn't had a heavy involvement game through two weeks, and with only two more games til Julian Edelman is back, he will need to show more.

2018 Week 1 vs HOU (5 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Hogan had a fairly disappointing day, as he wasn't targeted much, and didn't separate as well as normal. With a thin WR corps and Julian Edelman on suspension, he should kick things into gear, but his Week 2 matchup doesn't get any easier.
