 Throughout his college career, Fant averaged one drop every 7.0 catchable targets. Over the past six NFL seasons, there are only two instances of a tight end drawing more than 50 targets and recording a worse drop rate than Fant's. @ScottBarrettDFB

Don't trust a rookie TE. Simple as that. They are historically entirely untrustworthy, so it is a losing proposition.Don't trust a rookie TE. Simple as that. They are historically entirely untrustworthy, so it is a losing proposition.

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.No. Rookie TEs don't contribute. Fant dropped too many balls last season, has a not-so-good QB, and is on a run-first team. Maybe next year,
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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 can be argued that Fant has the better opportunity than T.J. Hockenson this year, as the Broncos receiving corps is likely to be without Emmanuel Sanders to start the year, and they have Joe Flacco at the helm, who's always gravitated towards his tight ends. Fant has a ways to go in his blocking, but as a receiver, he should be able to contribute right away. However, knowing what we do about rookie tight ends, it's best to just stream Fant when he has a good matchup rather than draft him
Nick Zylak
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. 
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.
