Big bump in production Thursday

Agholor brought in six of eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 33-26 loss to the Vikings on Thursday night.

Analysis: Agholor came into the game with a meager 3-20 line on six targets over the previous five contests, so his busy and productive night was quite the surprise. The veteran speedster was second in receptions and targets while checking in third in receiving yards, and he recorded his first touchdown since Week 2 on a 34-yard grab in the first quarter that opened the scoring for the Patriots. Agholor's production is likely to remain volatile from week to week, but his first chance to follow up Thursday's effort comes in a Week 13 home matchup next Thursday night against the Bills.

Catches two passes versus Jets

Agholor was on the field for 37 of a possible 63 snaps on offense in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Jets en route to catching two of his three targets for 18 yards in the contest, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Though Agholor saw an uptick in snaps in Week 11, his fantasy production remained modest and he's only an option in deeper leagues as Thursday's game against the Vikings approaches. At this stage, Jakobi Meyers is the only New England wide receiver with steady enough volume to merit lineup consideration in most formats.

Records 21 snaps Sunday

Agholor was on the field for 21 of a possible 63 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Colts, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Agholor, who wasn't targeted in the contest, was out-snapped Sunday by Jakobi Meyers (51), Kendrick Bourne (48) and Tyquan Thornton (42). With just one catch in his last four games, Agholor doesn't currently merit fantasy lineup consideration.

Catches one pass Sunday

Agholor logged 19 of a possible 78 snaps on offense in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Even with DeVante Parker (knee) leaving the contest after just one play on offense, Agholor -- who caught his only target Sunday for two yards -- was out-snapped by Jakobi Meyers (63), Tyquan Thornton (61) and Kendrick Bourne (54). Until or unless he starts matching the level of playing time he saw at the beginning of the season, Agholor is off the fantasy radar.

In uniform Sunday

Agholor (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Analysis: Agholor will be available Sunday, but it remains to be seen how much volume he'll see in the contest. In this past Monday's 33-14 loss to the Bears, the 29-year-old was on the field three of a possible 52 snaps on offense, which paved the way for rookie Tyquan Thornton to see added opportunities in the Patriots offense. Given that Kendrick Bourne is also active versus New York, Agholor profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option in Week 8, with Jakobi Meyers and DeVante Parker also candidates to earn their share of targets from QB Mac Jones.

In line to play vs. Jets

Agholor (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, is on track to suit up, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Agholor carries the injury designation into the weekend after he was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday. The wideout looks like he'll avoid his first absence of the season Week 8, but he may have only a small role in the New England. Agholor played just 11 total snaps between the Patriots' last two games, with rookie Tyquan Thornton eating into the veteran's playing time.

Listed as questionable for Sunday

Agholor (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

Analysis: In Monday's 33-14 loss to the Bears, Agholor logged just three of a possible 52 snaps on offense, which allowed rookie Tyquan Thornton to see added opportunities. This weekend, Kendrick Bourne is slated to rejoin the team's WR mix, a context that clouds Agholor's Week 8 fantasy upside, given that Jakobi Meyers and DeVante Parker are also candidates to see their share of targets from QB Mac Jones on Sunday.

Oct 28, 2022 1:50 PM EST


Limited practice Wednesday

Agholor (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Agholor was on the field for just three of a possible 52 snaps on offense in Monday's 33-14 loss to the Bears, which allowed rookie Tyquan Thornton to see added Week 7 opportunities. While we'd expect Agholor to play this Sunday against the Jets, it remains to be seen if he'll be in line to reclaim the workload level he was seeing before injuring his hamstring back in Week 5.

Oct 26, 2022 2:29 PM EST


Logs three snaps Monday

Agholor logged three of a possible 52 snaps on offense in Monday's 33-14 loss to the Bears, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Though Agholor -- who didn't record a catch on one target in the contest -- was back in uniform following a one-game absence due to a hamstring injury, rookie Tyquan Thornton served as the Patriots' No. 3 wideout Monday, with Kendrick Bourne (toe) inactive. It remains to be seen, however, if that arrangement continues this Sunday against Jets, with Agholor further removed from the hamstring issue that sidelined him in Week 6.

Oct 25, 2022 7:35 AM EST


Listed as active Monday

Agholor (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Analysis: Agholor, who is back from a one-game absence, has caught 14 of his 19 targets for 225 yards and a TD in five games to date, will give it a go Monday, but it's worth noting that nine of his catches occurred in the Patriots' first two games. With that in mind, he's a hit-or-miss fantasy option while working in a Week 7 wideout corps that also includes Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker and Tyquan Thornton.

Oct 24, 2022 4:01 PM EST


Questionable for MNF

Agholor (hamstring) is listed a questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Analysis: Agholor, who was inactive for the Patriots' win over the Browns last weekend, didn't practice Thursday, but logged limited sessions Friday and Saturday, suggesting that he has a chance to play Monday. Over his first five games this season, the wideout has caught 14 of his 19 targets for 225 yards and a TD, though nine of his catches occurred in his first two outings. In any case, given the Patriots' late kickoff this week, Agholor profiles as a risky Week 7 fantasy lineup option.

Oct 22, 2022 2:51 PM EST


Limited in return to practice

Agholor (hamstring) was limited at practice Friday.

Analysis: Agholor, who sat out the Patriots' Week 6 win over the Browns, didn't practice Thursday, but his return to a limited session Friday offers hope that the wideout could suit up for Monday night's 8:15 ET contest against the Bears. However, given the timing of his team's Week 7 kickoff, at this stage Agholor looks like a risky fantasy lineup option versus Chicago.

Oct 21, 2022 2:56 PM EST


Returns to field

Agholor (hamstring ) was spotted at practice Friday, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.

Analysis: Agholor didn't practice Thursday, so this is a step in the right direction for the wideout, who missed this past Sunday's game against the Browns. At this stage though, Agholor seems likely to be listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Oct 21, 2022 11:54 AM EST


Not practicing Thursday

Agholor (hamstring) wasn't spotted at practice Thursday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Analysis: Agholor, who was inactive this past Sunday against the Browns, has two more chances to return to practice in advance of Monday night's game against the Bears, but if he remains sidelined for the contest, added Week 7 WR snaps alongside Jakobi Meyers and DeVante Parker would be available for rookie Tyquan Thornton and Kendrick Bourne (toe), if he's available.

Oct 20, 2022 10:01 AM EST


Out for Sunday

Agholor (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Browns.

Analysis: Agholor played just seven snaps in last week's contest before exiting with a hamstring injury. While the pass catcher did manage to practice in limited fashion all week, the team evidently made the choice to downgrade Agholor after initially listing him as questionable. Expect Kendrick Bourne and Tyquan Thornton to see a bit more playing after both tallied 25-plus offensive snaps in Week 5.

Oct 15, 2022 10:22 AM EST


Questionable for Week 6

Agholor (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game game Browns, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.

Analysis: Agholor, who exited this past weekend's win over the Lions after playing just seven snaps, was able to log limited practices this week, so he has has a chance to suit up versus Cleveland. Fortunately for those in league deep enough to consider the wideout in fantasy lineups, the Patriots kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday. Through his first five games this season, Agholor has caught 14 of his 19 targets for 225 yards and a TD, with nine of his catches occurring in New England's first two contests.

Oct 14, 2022 2:14 PM EST


Limited practice Wednesday

Agholor (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Analysis: Agholor left Sunday's win over the Lions after logging just seven snaps, so his status for this weekend's game against the Browns is worth monitoring. If he ends up out or limited in Week 6, added opportunities would be available for DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Tyquan Thornton alongside Jakobi Meyers (limited/knee).

Oct 12, 2022 1:45 PM EST


Exits Sunday's game

Agholor was forced out of Sunday's game against the Lions with ahamstring injury.

Analysis: In Agholor's absence, Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, Tyquan Thornton and Lil'Jordan Humphrey remain on hand to log WR snaps for the Patriots versus Detroit. Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, Agholor did not record a catch.

Oct 9, 2022 12:19 PM EST


Makes three grabs

Agholor caught three of four targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Agholor led the Patriots in receiving yards, evidencing the team's mild passing output on a day when rookie third-stringer Bailey Zappe was forced to fill in for the injured Brian Hoyer (head) while usual starter Mac Jones (ankle) was unavailable. It remains to be seen who will be under center in Week 5 versus Detroit, and Agholor's stock could also be impacted by fellow wideout Jakobi Meyers' (knee) status, making New England's injury report worthwhile to monitor throughout the coming week.

Oct 2, 2022 6:05 PM EST


Two catches in Week 3

Agholor was on the field for 50 of a possible 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-26 loss to the Ravens, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Agholor, who caught two of his three targets for 41 yards in the contest, was out-snapped in Week 3 by DeVante Parker (64) and Lil'Jordan Humphrey (54), while Jakobi Meyers was inactive due to a knee injury. With an 11/179/1 stat line on 14 targets through his first three outings this season, Agholor is on the radar in deeper fantasy formats, but if QB Mac Jones is forced to miss time with an ankle injury, the wideout's weekly ceiling could take a hit.
