T.J. Hockenson catches touchdown in defeat

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson secured three of three targets for 35 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's 16-14 loss to Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't the greatest day for the veteran TE, but he continues to find a way to get fantasy managers to the 10+ point mark. The veteran logged his fifth game out of his last six scoring 10 or more fantasy points. With such an abysmal passing attack and lack of weapons, Hockenson's upside is hindered, but look for him to remain a top-10 fantasy TE option weekly.

T.J. Hockenson hauls in six grabs during Sunday's loss

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson hauls in six-of-eight targets for 51 yards in 13-10 defeat to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

The playmaking tight end had a nice bounce back game after posting a donut in the box score last Sunday against the Steelers. Hockenson hauled in six-of-eight targets for 51 yards. In four fo his last five games, the veteran TE has double-digit fantasy points in PPR leagues. He continues to be a top-12 TE weekly and a near must start in all formats.

T.J. Hockenson posts a donut in the box score on Sunday

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson was targeted once but he did not record a catch during Sunday's 16-16 tie with the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Another down week for the veteran TE, he was targeted just one time and failed to record a single stat. It is not believed that Hockenson was dealing with any sort of injury. Instead, it seemed like he was yet again victim to Detroit's Jared Goff-led passing attack that generated 114 yards on the day. The Lions get back to work next week against a Cleveland Browns defense that has been getting torched this season. Expect Hockenson's production level's to continue to be up and down with Goff leading the team.

T.J. Hockenson lights out in loss to Eagles

T.J. Hockenson caught 10 of 11 targets for 89 yards during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Seeing more than double the number of targets as the next closest player on the team, Hockenson was the only avenue through which the Lions were able to find success. However, through eight games, the tight end has now seen at least eight targets six times, which is a claim that only one other tight end in the NFL (Travis Kelce) can make. While Hockenson won't have Kelce's upside as long as Jared Goff is throwing him the ball, his usage rate is elite and it's likely that Hockenson is just approaching his physical peak. The No. 8 pick of the 2019 NFL Draft will remain a top fantasy option when the Lions return from their Week 9 bye.

T.J. Hockenson (knee/ankle) removed from injury report

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson is a full-go for Week 8 and has been removed from the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson is averaging 10 targets over his last two games and is a must-start TE1 for Week 8 against the Eagles. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 but offers solid PPR upside due to volume alone.
