Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Catches first pass of 2023
Hodge caught his only target for 15 yards during Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Lions.
Hodge played 16 offensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season and was held without a catch. However, he got on the board in Week 3, securing a first-down grab late in the fourth quarter. Hodge has been playing more on special teams than he has on offense to begin 2023, so he currently doesn't hold much fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Non-factor in Week 1
Hodge (ankle) played 20 snaps (seven offensive) and didn't record any counting stats during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Panthers.
Despite logging back-to-back full sessions to end the practice week, Hodge was questionable heading into the contest due to an ankle injury. He was cleared ahead of kickoff but didn't make an impact. Hodge's seven offensive snaps were the fewest among Atlanta's wideouts who actually saw action, trailing Drake London (47), Mack Hollins (33) and Scotty Miller (10).... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Will play Week 1
Hodge (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After being limited Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Hodge logged back-to-back full sessions to end the week. However, the depth wideout still received a questionable tag. It's not surprising to see the veteran cleared, but he'll presumably play the majority of his snaps on special teams while Drake London, Mack Hollins and Scotty Miller handle most of the wideout snaps....

Hodge (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Back to fully practicing
Hodge (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday ahead of Sunday's game versus Carolina, Scott Blair of the Falcons' official site reports.
After progressing from missing practice Monday to registering a limited practice Wednesday, Hodge was back up to full speed Thursday. He figures to run primarily out of the slot for Atlanta again in 2023 and will try to improve on the 20 targets he drew a season ago.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Limited practice Wednesday
Hodge (ankle) was a limited participant at the Falcons' practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of the team's official website reports.
Hodge was a non-participant to open the week, so Wednesday's limited practice opens the door for him to be active Sunday versus the Panthers. The wide receiver is expected to operate as an option out of the slot once healthy.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Not practicing Monday
Hodge (ankle) did not practice Monday, D.Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hodge has been unable to participate in football activities since sustaining an ankle injury during the second week of preseason. If Hodge were unable to go for the Week 1 matchup versus Carolina, his absence would create a vacancy in the slot that second-year receiver Josh Ali is suited to fill.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Will sit out week of practice
Falcons coach Arthur Smith said Sunday that Hodge (ankle) will not participate in practice this coming week, Terrin Waack of the team's official site reports.
Hodge sustained an ankle injury during Friday's 13-13 preseason tie against the Bengals, sidelining him for the remainder of the contest. The exact nature and severity of the issue are still unknown, but it's significant enough to keep him from practicing ahead of Atlanta's preseason finale Thursday versus Pittsburgh, which likely means he'll be sidelined for that game. Smith also indicated that fellow veteran wideout Penny Hart (concussion) will be sidelined during this week's practices. Both Hodge and Hart are expected to vie for the Falcons' fourth and fifth wide receiver spots, so their absences could open up more opportunities for Josh Ali, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Keilahn Harris and others.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Injures ankle Friday
Hodge won't return to Friday's preseason game against the Bengals due to an ankle injury, NFL.com reports.
On his only catch of the evening, a seven-yarder, Hodge was twisted to the ground and had some difficulty getting to the sideline. Once he was there, he was examined by the Falcons' training staff before he was ruled out. The severity of the injury isn't known but likely will become more clear after the team does a battery of tests.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Re-ups with Atlanta
The Falcons re-signed Hodge to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.
The 28-year-old has bounced around the league since entering it as an undrafted free agent out of Prairie View A&M in 2018, but Hodge has settled in as a core special teams player and depth wideout. He set career highs on offense last season with 13 catches for 202 yards and his first NFL touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Career-high 202 yards in 2022
Hodge caught 13 of 20 targets for 202 yards and a touchdown across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.
Hodge caught five of six targets for 95 yards over the first two games of the season, but he failed to provide consistent production the rest of the way. He was held without a catch 10 times across his next 15 appearances and caught just one pass over the final six games of the campaign, four of which came with Desmond Ridder at the helm. Nonetheless, Hodge still posted a career-high 202 receiving yards during the campaign and may have interest in re-signing with Atlanta in free agency this offseason, though the Falcons may elect to completely overhaul their wideout corps behind Drake London....

Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Minimal role in passing attack
Hodge reeled in his lone target for five yards during Sunday's 20-19 victory over the Cardinals.
Hodge played the fourth-most snaps among Atlanta's wide receivers, but after securing a five-yard catch on the Falcons' opening offensive drive, the fifth-year wideout wasn't targeted again. The reception marked Hodge's first since Week 11, so it's safe to presume he won't offer much fantasy production during Sunday's regular-season finale against Tampa Bay. Across 16 appearances, Hodge has totaled 13 receptions on 20 targets for 202 yards and one touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Cleared for Week 15
Hodge was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Saints, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.
Hodge missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, but he wasn't limited by the aliment Friday and is good to go for Sunday's divisional matchup versus New Orleans. The fifth-year wideout has appeared in all 13 of Atlanta's contests this season, totaling 12 receptions on 19 targets for 197 yards and one touchdown, but he hasn't recorded a catch since Week 11....

Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Zero receptions on two targets
Hodge failed to catch either of his targets during Sunday's 19-16 loss against Pittsburgh.
Hodge played just six offensive snaps and was targeted on two of them, but he failed to record a reception. The fifth-year wideout has 12 receptions for 197 yards and one touchdown this season, but he's been held without a catch in seven of his 13 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Limited role in win
Hodge gathered in his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's 27-24 victory versus Chicago.
Hodge secured a 13-yard reception for a first down on the Falcons' first drive of the game, which ultimately ended in a Drake London touchdown. However, the fifth-year wideout wasn't targeted again the rest of the way, as Marcus Mariota only attempted 20 passes. Over his last three appearances, Hodge has caught four of five targets for 69 yards and a score, but he's played just 29 offensive snaps during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Hits pay dirt in loss
Hodge secured both of his targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 25-15 loss to the Panthers.
Hodge's 25-yard touchdown grab came with just under three minutes left in the game, bringing the Falcons within one score of the Panthers. The wideout's touchdown was his first of the season, and he now has 11 catches for 184 yards over the first 10 games. As Atlanta's No. 4 receiver, Hodge played just eight of the team's 63 offensive snaps. His efficiency Thursday is not sustainable, so the veteran's limited opportunities make him extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. Hodge and the Falcons will host the Bears in Week 11....

Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Logs one reception in loss
Hodge caught one of two targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 20-17 defeat versus the Chargers.
Hodge has solidified himself as the No. 4 wideout behind Drake London, Olamide Zaccheaus and Damiere Byrd, but Atlanta's passing attack isn't prolific enough to have multiple fantasy-relevant pass catchers. Across nine appearances, the veteran wideout has caught nine of 14 targets for 147 yards, though all of his receiving yards have come in four games (Weeks 1, 2, 5 and 9).... See More ... See Less
Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Solid production in loss
Hodge caught three of five targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 21-15 loss to the Buccaneers. He also secured a two-point conversion.
Hodge finished second on the team in targets and receptions and third on the team in receiving yards while playing the fourth-most snaps among Falcons wideouts. He caught a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter to cut Tampa Bay's lead to six, but Atlanta got no closer. Hodge caught five of six targets for 95 yards across his first two appearances with the Falcons, but he was held without a catch on one target over the following two games. With Kyle Pitts (hamstring) sidelined though, Hodge bounced back in Week 5 and could see another expanded role in Week 6 if Pitts remains out.... See More ... See Less
