T.J. Hockenson racks up 21 yards in MNF loss

T.J. Hockenson corralled four of six targets for 21 yards in the Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson had another quiet game in Monday’s loss, going for a meager 21 yards. He hasn’t eclipsed 30 yards receiving since his Week 1 blowup, and he’s impossible to trust in 12-team leagues.

T.J. Hockenson (concussion) officially active for Week 6

Detroit Lions prized rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson is active for Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson has been frustrating to own after his breakout in Week 1 flashed his upside to the world, only for him to be a forgotten man in the offense for the majority of the following three weeks. Hopefully, the bye week allowed the team to install more packages for one of their brightest talents. Hockenson is worth a look for single game DFS contests.

T.J. Hockenson (concussion) questionable Week 6

T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson was able to practice without limitations both Friday and Saturday, but he'll still need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play Monday. He will most likely be a game-time decision. Continue to monitor his status as inactives are released 90 minutes before Monday's 8:15 P.M. ET kickoff. If Hockenson is unable to go, look for Jesse James to be locked in as the Lion's number one tight end.

T.J. Hockenson logs in full practice

T.J. Hockenson (concussion) was listed as a full participant on Friday's estimated injury report

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson has yet to clear the protocol for head injuries, but this development is the best sign yet that a visit to an independent neurologist is imminent. Once cleared, he should be good to for Monday Night's contest against the Packers. If Hockenson remains out, look for Jesse James and Logan Thomas to man tight end.

T.J. Hockenson avoids IR

T.J. Hockenson took a vicious fall landing on his head and shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. Avoiding IR after being carted off during the game is positive news for Hockenson, his family, and the Detroit Lions organization.

Fantasy Impact

It is safe to assume that Hockenson could miss a few games. If that proves to be accurate, the Lions would turn to Jesse James to fill Hockenson’s role while he is recovering. It would be best for fantasy owners to look elsewhere for TE assistance.
