New England Patriots: Who is the favorite target of Tom Brady in 2016?
The case for Chris Hogan
Last but not least, we have Hogan, the offseason acquisition who has flourished in New England thus far. From the start, we knew that Hogan would do well in 2016; his first catch was a touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals.
Thus far, Hogan has caught 12 of 20 targets for 236 yards and that touchdown. He ranks second only behind Bennett in yards and 20-yard gains (four); Hogan also ranks third on the team with eight first downs up to this point.
Remember what Brandon LaFell did for the Patriots in 2014? That is essentially the void Hogan is filling in the offense. He’s not a scorching deep threat, but he finds his way down the field effectively. Hogan is a dependable possession receiver and a capable blocker, making him the perfect No. 2 wide receiver behind Edelman and the de facto No. 4 target behind Edelman, Gronk and Bennett.
Who do you think is Brady’s favorite target out of this list?
