Don't trust a rookie TE. Simple as that. They are historically entirely untrustworthy, so it is a losing proposition.For those who don't know, Gesicki is an absolute athlete freak and is a 100th percentile SPARQ athlete. If the new regime plans to give him a legitimate shot at playing time and uses him in the red zone, he could be a steal.

The only rookie TE to end top-12 in recent memory was Evan Engram and that was because he was force fed the ball with injuries all around him. Stafford has never thrown to TEs either. Maybe next year.

A rookie tight end in fantasy football? That usually amounts to fantasy owners being let down. There have been 70 tight ends who've been drafted inside the top six rounds of the NFL Draft since 2013. Just one of them went on to finish as a top-12 fantasy tight end. That was Evan Engram who needed injuries to Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard to get there. If Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay were to go down with injuries, then it's okay to rely on the rookie HockensonIt was a disastrous rookie season for Gesicki. Despite seeing just 11 targets, Raiders backup tight end Lee Smith outscored Gesicki in fantasy football. You can blame Adam Gase. You can blame Ryan Tannehill. You can blame the fact that he was a rookie. The issue is that he didn't flash even when targeted and will now play for a defensive-minded head coach. We know he's a phenomenal athlete, but there was nothing he did in 2018 that suggests breakout in 2019

Fantasy Football Advice
Hockenson is going to be a great TE in this league. He's going to have some great seasons for fantasy, and he's likely to make an impact right out of the gates. The problem is, he's a rookie TE on a run first offense. The Lions are a terribly coached football team, and that isn't going to change this season. They are running a prehistoric offense, even though they have the pieces to put together an elite modern offense. It's tough enough for TE's to produce in their first season as a pro. It's even more difficult if they have to overcome bad coaching as well. Wait a season before drafting Hockenson.I probably won't draft Gesicki this season, but he's definitively a name to watch as the season progresses. If one of Rosen or Fitzmagic gets hot, then he might be able to put together some solid weeks. Gesicki is a really good receiving TE, and he's an absolute monster athletically. He's has a 95th percentile height adjusted speed score, a 99th percentile burst score, a 99th percentile agility score, a 97th percentile SPARQ-x score and a 100th percentile catch radius. If you want to take a shot on his upside in the final rounds of drafts, then I'm not going to stop you. Just know that the offense is going to be mediocre, and the o-line is trash. I wish he was on a different team.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
It is easy to get excited about rookies, especially one drafted as high as Hockenson was, but rookie tight ends rarely add up to anything whatsoever unless they play in an offense without competition. That won't be the case in Detroit with Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay still present. Avoid Hockenson in standard 12 team leagues this year.It seems likely that Gesicki will be the Dolphins starter all season, and while he has plenty of athleticism, he looked severely overmatched in 2018 so you might not want to hold your breath. There is reason to add him as a TE3 in best-ball formats, but he is otherwise a streamer only.
