2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hogan got off to a strong start last year before hurting his shoulder and missing all but one game in the second half of the regular season. He reached 60 yards six times through Week 9 and scored five touchdowns - and that was with the since-departed Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola in the fold. Hogan also caught six of eight targets for 128 yards and a score in the Super Bowl, proving that he was over the shoulder injury. At 6-1, 210, and with 4.5 speed (he claims to have once run a 4.39), Hogan has good size and is fast enough to get down the field - he had four catches of 40-plus yards on only 58 targets in 2016. Hogan also saw a good deal of red-zone work last year - eight targets inside the 10 in nine games, making him a good bet for TDs should he hold up for the full year. Even with Cooks, Amendola and Dion Lewis gone, Hogan hardly has Tom Brady to himself, however. The team signed Eric Decker, among other veterans who could have significant roles. The Patriots will also throw to their backs, and tight end Rob Gronkowski should again be their top end-zone target. Julian Edelman is returning from a torn ACL but also faces a four-game suspension. This is still a top-five NFL offense in which Hogan should have a prominent role. Read Past Outlooks

Goes without a catch Sunday
WRNew England Patriots
February 4, 2019
Hogan did not haul in any of his six targets in Sunday's 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII.
ANALYSIS
Despite what looked like a nice four-game window of opportunity to start the 2018 season, Hogan's production was rather modest considering the investment required to obtain him in preseason fantasy drafts/auctions. Overall, the 30-year-old logged 35 catches (on 55 targets) for 532 yards and three TDs in 16 games, while often serving as the No. 4 or 5 option in the Patriots' passing attack. With Hogan's three-year deal with the team set to expire, the wideout will become an unrestricted free agent next month. A return to New England is still possible, but other teams figure to kick the tires on Hogan. If the opportunity for a more clear-cut role presents itself, the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder could be sporting a new uniform in 2019.

In his second season with the Patriots, Hogan entered training camp as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Brandin Cooks and Julian Edelman. A preseason knee injury that ended Edelman's season, however, has boosted Hogan's fantasy profile. At 6-1, 210 pounds, Hogan brings decent size to the table, as well as versatility given that he can line up and produce on either the outside or inside. Last season, Hogan, who turns 29 in October, caught 34 passes (on 57 targets) for 680 yards and four TDs in 15 games. Consistent looks were not always there for him, but that could change now that Edelman is out of the mix. Hogan's nine-catch, 180-yard explosion (on 12 targets) in the AFC championship game demonstrates his upside when he's a big part of New England's game plan.
Hogan's deal with the Patriots virtually ensures he'll compete for the targets left behind by the departed Brandon LaFell. With $7.5 million guaranteed, Hogan should push Danny Amendola for the No. 2 role and provide a much-needed bigger target out wide. At 6-1, 220, with 4.5 40 speed, Hogan could also stretch the field more than his slower, smaller teammates and function as a more formidable red-zone presence. Of course, Rob Gronkowski is the king of the red zone for the Patriots, and fellow tight end Martellus Bennett is no slouch as a pass catcher, either. In any event, once Brady returns from his four-game suspension, Hogan has a chance to be what LaFell was in 2014, a useful big-play complement to Julian Edelman on the outside.
In his second season, Hogan finished fifth on the Bills with 41 receptions (on 61 targets) for 426 yards and also supplied four receiving touchdowns, which ranked only behind starting wideouts Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. While the addition of wideout Percy Harvin figures to push Hogan down the depth chart and could really thin out his production, Hogan's 6-1, 220-pound frame makes him the Bills' biggest main receiver and a decent red zone threat, especially considering all of Hogan's touchdowns came from within 25 yards last season.
Chris Hogan is on the roster bubble this year with the top six wide receivers in Buffalo pretty well set.
Chris Hogan earned the nickname "7-11" because he is always open, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to win one of the open spots on the Bills' roster. Hogan is battling to be one of the last names included in the Buffalo receiving corps and therefore carries little value in fantasy.
