The addition of Brandin Cooks made fantasy football players forget about Hogan, but you can be certain Tom Brady hasn't. Hogan scored four times last year and had another 100-yard receiving game. The Patriots passing game is crowded, but Hogan should be able to give you 4-5 scoring weeks and a very late round pick price again this year with the gameplan of the week nature of the Patriots offense.
Talent is a key component for evaluating upside players because immediate opportunity could be limited. Hogan has enough quickness to stretch the field in the Patriots' offense, he's a smart route-runner, and he has reliable hands. That's enough for him to thrive if the opportunity presents itself.

Summary

While many might worry that Julian Edelman's numbers could drop significantly with the talented Brandin Cooks in town, we think the reverse might be true. With a legitimate number one in town, defenses are going to have to change how they cover Edelman. Cooks for the most part will be running outside routes, which means the secondary is going to have to focus more coverage there. That means fewer safeties or extra corners covering Edelman, and more linebackers. This could result in a more effective Edelman, though with so many weapons his overall yardage production is likely to drop back under 1000 yards. Still, this is a good position to be in and Edelman, facing more mismatches due to defensive scheme, should have a very good season. (May 22)
