Good lord. Dude puts up 4 straight strong weeks and then has a stinker and all the sudden everyone panics. These games will happen here and there, he isn’t he focal point of the offense. Yet, he is still on the field on almost every snap with the best QB in the league. Gets a ton of red zone targets. He is a low end WR1/high WR2.

Hulk Hogan will be fine.

 

Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
Hogan got shaken up on a hit from Marcus Maye in the first half Sunday against the Jets, but still played 63-of-68 offensive snaps. He'll be fine for Sunday night's Super Bowl rematch against Atlanta, even if his practice reps are limited. Last week ended Hogan's touchdown streak at four games. Oct 18 - 5:09 PM

Through six games, both Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan each have 41 targets. They also have 24 receptions apiece. The difference is the yardage, which goes to Cooks 472 to 307, but Hogan has dominated the red zone work, catching five touchdowns compared to just two for Cooks. You typically want to favor the yardage guys, as they are more predictable, though the Falcons have yet to allow 100 yards to any wide receiver this year. They have really struggled to defend slot wide receviers, and have allowed touchdowns to Jarvis Landry, Jordan Matthews, and Golden Tate over their last three games. Hogan and Danny Amendola are the two who occupy the slot the majority of the time, making them very appealing in this game. Consider Cooks a WR2 who can pay-off with one big play, while Hogan remains a very strong WR2. Amendola is someone who’s been forgotten about the last few weeks, but don’t make that mistake here, as he’s a pretty solid bet for WR3 production, especially in PPR formats.

As a Pats fan, I concur with this analysis. (Hogan owner, full disclosure)

Chris Hogan (ribs) expects to play in Sunday night's game with Atlanta.

There wasn't much doubt over his status. Hogan is coming off a down Week 6, but should rebound in a potential shootout. Hogan has scored touchdowns in 4-of-6 games.

Brady also missed him on a RZ throw, he was wide open (Brady was rushed). 

 

Was that before or after the rib injury?  I didn't see the game.  Did he get plenty of looks after the injury or was he more of a decoy?

I'm probably over thinking this but should I be worried about starting him if there is heavy rain and wind in Foxborough during the game? Don't running backs become the focal point in bad weather games?   Thanks

Everything I have seen says the heavy rain & wind is starting in the evening
