New Orleans Saints TE Michael Hoomanawanui posted two grabs for 27 yards and a touchdown on three targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Despite Hoomanawanui finding the end zone he is nothing more than a desperation fantasy option when your primary option has a bye week. The Saints travel to meet the Packers in Week 7.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui did some running and sled work Monday, Dec. 20, and reports that he "felt pretty good," reports Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo said the team is hopeful Hoomanawanui can return in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. He has been sidelined since Nov. 28 due to a high sprain of his right ankle.
Huddle Up: The Rams have high hopes for Hoomanawanui, who scored three times in a five-game span prior to suffering his injury; they've been filling in with Daniel Fells and Billy Bajema during Dr. Hoo's absence.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui suffered a slight setback in his recovery and he remains out, reports Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He just didn't feel good today," head coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "He was going to try to go. He'll truly be day-to-day."
Huddle Up: Hoomanawanui has been sidelined for almost a month with an ankle injury. Prior to suffering the injury, Hoo had been emerging as a favorite target of Sam Bradford; now we may have to wait until next season to see if that relationship develops into anything fantasy owners can exploit.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui (calf) is out two weeks because of a strained calf. He will then be considered day-to-day after the two weeks.
Huddle Up: Lance Kendricks, come on down! Even with Hoom...nui expected to have a role in the offense, Kendricks was also going to be a significant part of the scheme. Now he has a chance to really shine. Sam Bradford loves throwing to his TE (he and Jermaine Gresham crushed it at OU) and Kendricks could be a steadying force for Bradford with the WR corps once again iffy.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui likely will be the starter next season if he is able to stay healthy, reports Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Huddle Up: Hoo had a brief run of success in between injuries, and with the Rams devoid of a go-to receiver Sam Bradford seemed comfortable throwing to his tight end. His health will be a key, but if he's able to stay in the lineup he could be a sneaky fantasy contributor.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 12 and will miss four to six weeks, according to StLouisRams.com.
Huddle Up: Hoomanawanui is a pretty good player who scored in three of his last five games. No. 2 TE Billy Bajema caught two touchdowns at Denver in Week 12 and will be the primary tight end going forward.

St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui (ankle) has a significant high ankle sprain, per head coach Steve Spagnuolo, reports StLouisRams.com. There is no timetable for Hoomanawanui's return, but he'll likely be out for a bit.
Huddle Up: Sam Bradford has lost Hoomanawanui (ankle) indefinitely, Donnie Avery (knee) for the season, and maybe even Laurent Robinson (ankle) for a week or two.

New England Patriots TE Michael Hoomanawanui said he hopes to be more involved in the passing game this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: The Pats certainly need another reliable TE receiving option given Rob Gronkowski's myriad health issues, but Hoomanawanui's best receiving season was a 13-catch, 146-yard, 3-TD effort in his rookie season (2010) in St. Louis, and even a significant statistical jump likely wouldn't register on the fantasy radar.

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Michael Hoomanawanui said he hopes to re-sign with the team this offseason.
Huddle Up: Whether he returns to N.E. or not -- and whether starter Rob Gronkowski remains healthy or not -- Hoomanawanui simply is a fantasy non-factor, as is evidenced by his 37 career receptions in 4 NFL seasons.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Michael Hoomanawanui left the Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers and was unable to return due to a knee injury.
Huddle Up: We'll have to wait for the update as to the injury's severity, but this may hurt the Pats' running game more than the passing game as Hoomanawanui, known more for his blocking, has only 10 catches for 114 yards this season.
