Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks after missing Friday's practice. We won't get any more info from the team and might not know Hogan's official status until 7 pm ET on Sunday. Hogan wasn't a reliable fantasy play anyway and should definitely be on fantasy benches now.

11:32am EDT 9/18/16

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. We haven’t heard anything to suggest that the shoulder will be an issue. Hogan played 77% of the offensive snaps and posted a 3-60-1 line in the opener. He’s a WR4 or flex option in today’s plus matchup.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited Friday. We haven't heard of a setback, or that Hogan is in danger of missing Sunday's game. We'll find out for sure by noon ET on gameday.

NFL Network's Courtney Fallon reports that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will not play against the Cardinals on Sunday night. It's a bit surprising after Gronk was able to get in 3 limited practices this week, but his outlook got decidedly more grim when he wasn't on the team flight to Arizona. His absence is another massive blow to an offense already without QB Tom Brady. TE Martellus Bennett gets the biggest boost up the Week 1 Rankings sans Gronk. WRs Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan and RB James White could also see a few extra targets.

Update: Gronkowski has officially been ruled out for Week 1.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) expects to play in Sunday night's opener against the Cardinals. “I feel good. I’ve been preparing a lot," he said. "I feel strong, I feel fast, I’m ready to roll.” Amendola missed the entire offseason after undergoing surgeries on his knee and ankle. We'd expect him to be on some type of snap count if he's active this weekend, but his presence would put a damper on WR Chris Hogan's outlook. Julian Edelman is the only Pats WR that should be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola spent all of training camp and the preseason on the PUP list, but the team hasn't placed him on any such list for the regular season. That indicates he'll be among the 53 players on the Week 1 roster, which crowds the WR picture a little further. We'll see how he, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell fit together as the season gets going -- with TE Clay Harbor and RB D.J. Foster further clouding that picture. It'll be best to try to use none of those players initially in your fantasy football lineup, especially with QB Tom Brady out for the 1st 4 weeks.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan hauled in 5 of 6 targets for 62 yards and a score in Friday night's preseason game against the Panthers. All those marks led the team. Four of Hogan's catches came from QB Jimmy Garoppolo, but he also caught a beautiful 33-yard TD from QB Tom Brady. Hogan seems set to open the season with a significant role. That makes him worth a look as a bench guy with upside for your fantasy squad.

The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian calls WR Chris Hogan a "perfect fit" in the Patriots offense.  Hogan has reportedly been a standout in OTAs, "constantly getting open" and "catching everything."  He's been soaking up 1st-team reps with Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola sidelined.  Hogan has the quickness to run the shorter routes that guys like Edelman and Amendola have lived off.  But the 6'1, 220-pound Hogan could also fill the outside-the-numbers "X" receiver role.  We'll be keeping a close eye on his progress in the offense and role throughout the summer.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola had offseason surgeries on his knee and ankle, according to insider Jeff Howe.  Amendola had a bone spur removed from his ankle.  The knee was a "clean up" procedure and was more serious than the ankle, per Howe.  Amendola is still rehabbing and has no firm timetable for return.  "There's hope Amendola will be ready for training camp but it's way too early to know if Week 1 is even a guarantee," says Howe.  Remember that Pats WR Julian Edelman recently underwent foot surgery, leaving New England's WR corps in flux.  Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan look like interesting late-round fliers in fantasy drafts.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola has accepted a pay cut to remain with the team, according to insider Mike Garafolo.  His new deal will pay him $7.35 million over the next 2 years.  Amendola hauled in 65 balls for 648 yards and 3 TDs last season, but he'll need to hold off additions Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell for snaps and targets in 2016.

The Bills have declined to match the Patriots' 3-year, $12 million offer to WR Chris Hogan, sending him on his way to New England.  Hogan operated as Buffalo's #3 WR over the past 2 seasons, hauling in 77 of 120 targets (64.2%) for 876 yards (11.4 YPC) and 6 TDs.  He worked mostly as a short-range target for the Bills but might have more to offer.  Hogan goes 6'1 and 220 pounds with plus athleticism.  There's opportunity in New England's WR corps, making him a name to monitor this summer.  It certainly wouldn't be the 1st time the Patriots took another team's castoff and turned him into a useful WR.

The Patriots are set to sign Bills WR Chris Hogan to a 3-year, $12 million offer sheet, "barring a late snag," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  The Bills will have 5 days to decide whether they want to match the offer.  Hogan played a bit role in Buffalo the past 2 years but hauled in 64.2% of his targets.  He's exactly the type of player whose talent could be maximized in New England.  If the Pats land Hogan, it could mean the end of WR Danny Amendola.

Bills WR Robert Woods suffered what HC Rex Ryan labeled a "severe" groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.  That'll likely end his season.  Woods is sitting on 47 catches, 553 yards and 3 scores -- all down from his 65-699-5 line last season.  He has 1 year left on his rookie deal with the Bills.  Chris Hogan figures to step in as Buffalo's #2 WR but won't be a fantasy option.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) won't play against the Jaguars this weekend, HC Rex Ryan announced on Thursday.  That he was ruled out so early in the week suggests that Watkins is dealing with a significant sprain.  The good news is that Buffalo has a Week 8 bye.  With Percy Harvin (hip) also out, Robert Woods and Chris Hogan will serve as the Bills' top 2 WRs this weekend.  Both are just desperation fantasy options.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.  He at least traveled with the team to London -- unlike WR Percy Harvin (hip) and RB Karlos Williams (concussion) -- and HC Rex Ryan has not ruled him out.  But fantasy owners can't be counting on Watkins in Week 7.  If he can't play against the Jaguars, Buffalo would be left with Robert Woods and Chris Hogan as its top 2 WRs.
