Chris Hogan: Season shortened by knee injury

Hogan finished the 2019 season with eight catches (on 15 targets) for 67 yards in seven games played.

Analysis: Hogan inked a one-year deal with the Panthers last offseason to serve as a depth receiving option, but quickly saw his availability derailed by a knee injury. The veteran was placed on injured reserve in early October after requiring arthroscopic surgery, but at least returned to feature in Carolina's final three contests. Overall, though, he failed to top 20 yards in any of his outings, making minimal impact as he now enters free agency for the second straight year.

Chris Hogan: Could see role expand sans Moore

Hogan is expected to have a regular role in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Saints with D.J. Moore (concussion) expected to sit out the contest, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: After playing only six offensive snaps Week 15 in his first game back from injured reserve, Hogan's snap share jumped all the way to 74 percent Week 16 in the Panthers' 38-6 loss to the Colts. Moore's early exit due to the concussion was the primary cause of Hogan's increased action, but the former Patriot was unable to do much with the opportunity, hauling in two of three targets for 16 yards. Hogan should be in store for another heavy snap count in the season finale, but his fantasy ceiling is suppressed while the unproven Will Grier is under center for Carolina.

Chris Hogan: Catches two passes

Hogan caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Hogan hauled in a couple passes after fellow wideout D.J. Moore (concussion) was forced into an early exit. If Moore remains out in Week 17 versus the Saints, Hogan could garner some extra looks, but Sunday's lackluster performance from rookie quarterback Will Grier should probably temper the expectations of Carolina's passing game to close the campaign.

Chris Hogan: Catches one pass in return

Hogan caught one of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: Hogan made his first appearance since suffering a knee injury in Week 4, and although he made a minimal impact statistically, he at least helps Carolina's depth at wideout for the remaining couple weeks of the campaign.

Chris Hogan: Activated off injured reserve

Hogan (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Hogan will be eligible to play Sunday against the Seahawks as a result, although it remains to be seen how much work the veteran wide receiver will have given he's missed the last nine games after undergoing knee surgery in October. Jarius Wright has operated as the main slot receiver in Hogan's absence, although he only has two games with two or more receptions over that time frame.

Chris Hogan: Designated to return from IR

Hogan (knee) resumed practicing with the Panthers on Wednesday and has been designated to return from injured reserve, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Hogan landed on IR in early October after requiring arthroscopic knee surgery, but he's been seen working out on the side during practices for nearly a month. The Panthers' decision to integrate Hogan with the main group during Wednesday's practice indicates more confidence in his health, and there's a real chance the wideout could return to action as soon as Sunday versus the Seahawks. Carolina already has a spot open on the 53-man roster after waiving another receiver in Greg Dortch earlier this week.

Chris Hogan: Going on injured reserve

The Panthers placed Hogan (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: According to GM Marty Hurney, Hogan will undergo arthroscopic surgery in the near future and potentially be a candidate to return later this season, per Rodrigue. Hogan must remain on IR for eight weeks before he can play again, meaning his first chance would be Week 13 against the Redskins, assuming his rehab goes without a hitch. In the meantime, both Brandon Zylstra and Ray-Ray McCloud may have an opportunity to contribute to the Panthers' passing attack.

Chris Hogan: Dealing with knee injury

Hogan didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hogan has tended to knee injuries at times in his seven-year career, but the nature of this one currently is unknown. As such, his listing on practice reports will be of something to watch this week. In the end, though, he hasn't done much in the Panthers offense in 2019, hauling in three of five targets for 24 yards.

Chris Hogan: Just one catch

Hogan caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Hogan has mostly featured on special teams through his first four games with the Panthers, as he's only played more than 10 offensive snaps once so far. Unless that changes, his weekly production going forward will likely remain restricted to something similar to Sunday's output.

Chris Hogan: Targeted twice Sunday

Hogan caught one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Hogan logged 19 offensive snaps, which enabled him to see more than one target for the first time as a Panther. Still, in working behind D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel and Jarius Wright at wideout in an offense that also heavily incorporates tight end Greg Olsen and tailback Christian McCaffrey, Hogan's role isn't conducive to many opportunities on a weekly basis.

Chris Hogan: Catches one pass

Hogan caught his lone target for 12 yards and returned one kick for 21 yards in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Hogan played only three offensive snaps in the contest, bringing his offensive workload to eight snaps through two games. Jarius Wright played 54 of 79 snaps and appears locked in as the No. 3 wideout despite limited production (three receptions for 29 yards).

Chris Hogan: No catches in debut

Hogan didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Hogan featured on only five offensive snaps, so it isn't surprising he made little impact. It'll be interesting to see whether the Panthers deploy more four-receiver sets Thursday against the Buccaneers, as Hogan is currently behind D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel and Jarius Wright on the depth chart.

Chris Hogan: Light preseason workload

Hogan has caught one of two targets for six yards while featuring in two of the Panthers' preseason games so far.

Analysis: Hogan was rested for Carolina's exhibition opener, but hauled in his first pass as a Panther the next week versus the Bills. He then played one offensive snap against his other former team, the Patriots, in Thursday's game. Despite that light workload, Hogan is currently still projected to serve alongside Jarius Wright and Torrey Smith in backing up starters D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel at receiver this season.

Chris Hogan: Back after short absence

Hogan was able to rejoin practice after missing Monday's session with back tightness, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hogan was forced to leave Sunday's practice early to tend to an injury that forced him to ultimately miss a few days. He will be inserted back into the fold of a large group competing for wide receiver snaps behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel.

July 31, 2019 3:55 PM EST

Chris Hogan: Sidelined by back issue

Hogan is dealing with back tightness, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hogan left Sunday's practice early and isn't out on the field for Monday's session. He's part of a large group competing for wideout snaps behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, so the absence could free up extra reps for a number of players, including Torrey Smith, Aldrick Robinson and Rashad Ross.

July 29, 2019 7:51 AM EST

Chris Hogan: Sitting out practice

Hogan left Sunday's practice early and isn't present for Monday's session, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hogan presumably suffered an injury, though it hasn't been confirmed. He's part of a large group competing for wideout snaps behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel

July 29, 2019 6:41 AM EST

Chris Hogan: Headed for backup role

Hogan projects as a second-team player for the start of offseason practices, Joseph Person of The Athletics reports.

Analysis: Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports that Hogan's one-year, $1.45 million contract includes only $300,00 guaranteed, potentially setting him up to battle for a roster spot. The former Patriot at least has a track record of contributing on special teams, while fellow Panthers wideout Torrey Smith has strictly played offense throughout his career. With D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel locked into key roles, Hogan and Smith will compete with Jarius Wright, Rashad Ross and a few other players.

Chris Hogan: Gets one-year deal with Carolina

Hogan signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old wideout had some big playoff moments during his three seasons in New England, but he finished his tenure with a zero-catch, six-target dud in a Super Bowl win over Los Angeles. Given the one-year contract and the length of time he spent unsigned, Hogan doesn't seem to have drawn much interest as a potential starter on the open market. The Panthers are looking at a tough competition for snaps at wide receiver, with Hogan joining a group that includes D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Jarius Wright, Torrey Smith and Rashad Ross. The team could still opt for some cap relief by releasing Smith and/or Wright.

April 12, 2019 8:33 AM EST

Chris Hogan: Goes without a catch Sunday

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 is slated to 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 and 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.

February 4, 2019 9:31 AM EST

Chris Hogan: Catches five passes Sunday

Hogan caught five of his seven targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 37-31 AFC Championship win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: Meanwhile, Julian Edelman caught seven of his 10 targets for 96 yards and TE Rob Gronkowski hauled in six of his 11 targets for 79 yards, but with Josh Gordon no longer in the mix, Hogan profiles as the Patriots' clear-cut No. 2 wideout option as Super Bowl LIII against the Rams approaches, an assignment that carries with it a degree of fantasy utility.
