T.J. Hockenson ends season with a dud

T.J. Hockenson caught all three of his targets for 25 yards in the Lions’ 37-35 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hock finished with another dud, and he ends the season with three straight games of 25 receiving yards or less. Hockenson put together a strong second season, finishing with 67 receptions for 723 receiving yards and six touchdowns as a TE1. Both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones will be unrestricted free agents in 2021, and Hock could enjoy an even heftier workload in his third season.

T.J. Hockenson flops in Week 16 blowout loss

T.J. Hockenson caught four of six targets for 23 yards in the Lions' 47-7 loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

That's two terrible games in a row for Hockenson, who's been forced to deal with poor quarterback play. He'll remain a TE1 in Week 17, though he'll be a volatile option for that one.

T.J. Hockenson implodes in Week 15 loss

T.J. Hockenson corralled two of four targets for 18 yards and added a carry that went for no gain in the Lions’ 46-25 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He also lost a fumble in what turned out to be a disastrous afternoon for Hockenson. The second-year man flopped in a big way in this one, but he's otherwise been a highly reliable option all season. He'll look to bounce back in Week 16 against TB, where he'll remain a top-5 play at TE.

T.J. Hockenson finds end zone in Week 14 loss

T.J. Hockenson caught six of 11 targets for 43 yards and a TD in the Lions’ 31-24 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hock led the Lions in targets and hit paydirt for the sixth time this season. The second-year TE has really found his groove in Detroit and has separated himself from most others at his position this season. He remains a top-5 option for the final games of the season.
