Will play again

May 21, 2019
Hodges, who announced his retirement in April, has decided to play again, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hodges announced over a month ago that his seventh NFL season was his last, but time away from the game has apparently caused the linebacker to have a change of heart. With Hodges reportedly already drawing interest from teams, he shouldn't be a free agent for too much longer.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Double-check on his anticipated role closer to your draft, but as of press time there's reason to expect a breakout season for Hodges as a potential starter next to Bowman in San Francisco's 3-4. A starting inside linebacker on a Chip Kelly team is an IDP factor by default due to the high play counts, but Hodges might actually be pretty good aside from that. He's very athletic – he actually was a returner at points at Penn State – and last year he had 50 tackles (39 solo) in 518 defensive snaps despite an in-season trade from Minnesota to San Francisco.
Hodges could compete for the starting middle linebacker role, but more likely becomes a key reserve as he can play all three linebacker positions.
Hodges, a 2013 fourth-round draft pick, will be a reserve linebacker. However, it's possible he could compete for a starting role if Jasper Brinkley or 2014 first-round pick Anthony Barr struggle.
Hodges isn't particularly well known as a fourth-round pick from Penn State, but Minnesota's lack of talent at linebacker gives Hodges a great chance to start and earn a three-down role as a rookie. If this should occur, it wouldn't simply be by default. Hodges was a good player at Penn State with standout athleticism to the point that the team experimented with him as a punt returner at one point. Although he's rangy, Hodges still makes an impact at the point of attack, as he had 18.5 tackles for loss the last two years. With a little luck, Hodges might be Minnesota's second-leading tackler behind Greenway.
