ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Steelers later today. It's a complete surprise after he returned and played 90% of the snaps last week. Schefter mentions newly signed WR Kenny Britt as an option to pick up some of Hogan's snaps, but Britt can't be trusted in fantasy lineups. Hogan's absence should mean more targets for WR Brandin Cooks, TE Rob Gronkowski and the RBs.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Dolphins. There's a chance that he's on a snap count in his 1st action since Week 8, but we're expecting Hogan to be on the field in most passing situations -- especially with TE Rob Gronkowski out.

Patriots insider Phil Perry confirms that WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) will play against the Dolphins tonight. "It's unclear how much he'll play," Perry adds. Hogan has been sidelined since Week 8 and was limited in practice this week. It's possible he's on a snap count, but there's still plenty of upside here against Miami's leaky secondary.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. ESPN's Mike Reiss reports that Hogan's shoulder "responded well" to practice and that he'll "likely" play vs. Miami. We'll look for another update on his status tomorrow morning, but we'd feel comfortable penciling Hogan into Week 14 fantasy lineups right now.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was on the practice field on Wednesday for the 1st time since going down back in Week 8. It's an unofficial practice since New England doesn't play until Monday night, so we won't know whether Hogan was "limited" or "full." But it looks like he has a shot to return for the Dolphins game. It'd be excellent timing with TE Rob Gronkowski suspended.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. He didn’t practice all week and remains without a timetable for return. Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola will continue to serve as New England’s top 2 WRs in Buffalo.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Brandin Cooks will continue to operate as New England’s clear lead receiver in the plus matchup.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. New England has no reason to rush him back for Sunday's easily winnable game against the Dolphins. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Hogan in Week 12 lineups.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He’s yet to practice since suffering that shoulder injury and doesn’t seem particularly close to a return. WR Phillip Dorsett played 70% of the snaps in Hogan’s absence last week and is on the flier radar for this Sunday’s plus matchup.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He still hasn't practiced since hurting that shoulder back in Week 8. Fantasy owners can't be counting on him for this Sunday's game vs. Oakland.

The Patriots have ruled WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) out for Sunday night's game against the Broncos. That should mean more playing time for WR Phillip Dorsett, but it doesn't make him an attractive fantasy option.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Broncos on Sunday night. That'd move WR Phillip Dorsett up to #3 on the depth chart.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not take part in the team's post-bye-week practice on Tuesday, according to insider Karen Guregian. We still don't have any details on Hogan's injury, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Hogan could miss "a few weeks." At this point, fantasy owners should be preparing to be without him this week. We'll see if that changes over the next few days.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan is expected to miss "a few weeks" with his shoulder injury, according to NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport. Hogan doesn't need surgery and will be re-evaluated after New England's Week 9 bye. With a Week 10 matchup against the Broncos, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if Hogan misses that one.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan injured his right arm in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll update his status when we learn more. Hogan's absence figures to mean more snaps for WR Phillip Dorsett.

Update: Hogan's injury is to his shoulder, the team announced.

The Patriots have placed WR Malcolm Mitchell on IR with a knee injury. We don't have any other details, but it's certainly worth noting that Mitchell tore an ACL in 2013 and required another surgery on the same knee in 2014. We'll see if New England tabs him their "designated-to-return" player, but there's no reason to roster Mitchell in redraft leagues right now. Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola are locked in as New England's top 3 WRs.

Patriots HC Bill Belichick called WR Chris Hogan "one of our best players" in a recent radio appearance. "Another hard-working guy that is tough and has been very dependable for us," Belichick added. The Hoodie rarely publicly praises one of his guys, so this is notable. Hogan is in line to soak up a big chunk of the targets left behind by Julian Edelman. It's not tough to see him emerging as a high-upside WR3.

Patriots QB Tom Brady talked Monday morning about how the team will replace WR Julian Edelman. "We have to find a different way to do it," Brady said. "I mean obviously with Danny [Amendola], I’ve had that [chemistry] with Danny. Danny has been such a great player for us. Hogs [Chris Hogan], he’s had a great camp. Brandin Cooks has done a great job. Malcolm [Mitchell], when he has been out there, I have a lot of trust in him. All the backs and tight ends, we’re just going to have to pick up the slack. The production has to come from a different place." Hogan is the best bet to finish 2nd among Pats WRs in targets. But Amendola, RBs James White, Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis and TE Dwayne Allen could also see volume boosts. Edelman averaged a whopping 9.7 targets per game over the past 4 seasons, so there's a lot of fantasy production to go around here. We'll be keeping a close eye on what this passing game looks like early on this season.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that an MRI on Patriots WR Julian Edelman's right knee confirmed a "complete ACL tear." He's done for the season and is tasked with a lengthy rehab. If all goes smoothly, he'll be ready for the start of training camp next year. But Edelman will be 32 years old at that point. He's signed in New England through the 2019 season with cap hits of $5.2 and $4.7 million over the next 2 seasons. We've already removed Edelman from the 2017 WR rankings and bumped up Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola. QB Tom Brady's projections took a slight hit, but he's still flush with weapons and sitting 2nd in the QB rankings.

The Patriots "suspect" WR Julian Edelman suffered a torn ACL in Friday night's preseason game against the Lions, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "But do not definitely know," Schefter adds. "MRI on Sunday to determine full extent of injury." These "he-probably-tore-his-ACL" reports usually turn out to be torn ACLs. If that's the case, Edelman will miss the entire 2017 season. That'd open up a boatload of targets in 1 of the top passing games in the NFL. WR Chris Hogan would stand as the most likely beneficiary. WR Danny Amendola would also see a big boost in snaps. And WR Brandin Cooks, TE Rob Gronkowski and RB James White would pick up some extra targets.
