Pats WR Chris Hogan moves back to WR2 spot

ESPN - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Chris Hogan returned to action after missing four games with a right shoulder injury, and that had a trickle-down effect on the New England Patriots' depth chart.

"It was good to be back out there with the guys, and be playing," said Hogan. "I missed being out there with them."

Hogan went right back to his role as a top-2 receiver alongside Brandin Cooks, which pushed Phillip Dorsett down the depth chart. Dorsett didn't play an offensive snap, joining backup quarterback Brian Hoyer as the only players on the 46-man roster to not play.

Fantasy Impact:

The bad news was Hogan was targeted five times and had one catch for one yard in the game. Those numbers should obviously improve, but without showing fantasy production, Hogan remains risky for lineups especially during fantasy playoffs. He played on 55 snaps, second only at WR to Brandin Cooks' 60.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Washington

Brian Hoyer had his second big game in three weeks, throwing for 353 yards and 2 scores against Indianapolis last week. Given the matchup, the 49ers could be forced to throw again this week if they fall behind. Hoyer isn't anything close to a sure bet, however. This one would take some guts to do. But he could be a sneaky start if you feel the Washington will start fast.
