Derek Brown

We have likely seen the ceiling already for T.J. Hockenson, but that shouldn't be construed as shade. Hockenson has now logged back-to-back TE7 finishes in fantasy points per game which is still extremely good, but it's doubtful he ever reaches the heights of top 3-5 status. He's also ranked 11th in each of the last two seasons in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets per PFF). With added target competition with the additions of Jameson Williams and D.J. Chark, Hockenson remains a top ten option at the position. Still, his ceiling is likely capped, keeping him outside the top five. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
T.J. Hockenson's season cut short by injuries has left a bitter taste in fantasy football managers' mouths. But the hate is unwarranted, as Hockenson was well on his way to a career year with the Lions. Through 13 weeks, the Detriot Lions tight end ranked sixth in points per game, fifth in targets per game (7), first in route participation (85%), third in target share (19%) and third in air yard share. Averaging over one more fantasy point from the year prior, Hockenson fits the mold as a post-hype sleeper after he failed to truly break out in 2021.Dawson Knox has major red flags on his profile from his impending touchdown regression to super-low target rate per route run (14%), so any role that O.J. Howard potential earns coming in is a massive problem. Considering Knox is being drafted in the middle-range of TEs (TE9) that typically have poor ROIs compared to guys going later, the Bills tight end remains hands-off.

 No meaningful competition added & some even removed. Knox should feast once again, perhaps even more than ever
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Didn't have the growth year we'd hoped for in 2021, but Hockenson's talent is obvious. Amon-Ra St. Brown's emergence creates target competition, and the Lions figure to add more WR help in the offseason.Young, athletic TE enjoyed a breakout season in 2021 and has the good fortune of being paired with one of the best quarterbacks in the game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hockenson missed the final four games of the season, but when he was in there he had some strong games with six-double digit games. The downside is he had four games with six points or less, due to a bad offense. If the Lions can improve the offense in 2022, Hockenson has the talent to be an elite TE1.Knox had 71.1 fantasy points in his first six games, before fracturing his hand and missing two games. He never regained his consistency after that, but he seems like he could be on the verge of a breakout if he puts everything together in 2022.
