T.J. Hockenson (knee) could miss first month of 2024 season

T.J. Hockenson reportedly could miss the first month of the 2024 season.

Fantasy Impact

After tearing his ACL and MCL in December, Hockenson elected to wait over one month to undergo surgery to allow his MCL to heal. The typical timeline to recovery from this surgery is nine months, which would leave him at a potential return date in early October. This will be a situation to monitor all offseason for fantasy managers regarding one of the top tight ends in the game and in fantasy football.

T.J. Hockenson (ACL, MCL) officially to end season on IR

The Minnesota Vikings have officially placed TE T.J. Hockenson on injured reserve, ending his season after Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson was a fantasy all-star at TE, finishing the year with 13 games of 6+ catches and seven games of 60+ yards. His impact was felt in Minnesota's passing game, helping keep it afloat alongside WR Jordan Addison while WR Justin Jefferson dealt with injury. Hockenson will be a top option at TE in 2024 unless his injury forces him to miss extra time. Josh Oliver and Johnny Mundt will end the season at TE for Minnesota.

T.J. Hockenson suffers season-ending ACL, MCL injuries

An MRI for Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson revealed ACL and MCL injuries that will end his season, the team announced Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson suffered a right knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Lions, and the team was immediately bracing for the worst. He'll miss the final two games of the season and any potential playoff matchups, should the Vikings qualify and advance. The concern now will be if he can return to full health ahead of the start of the 2024 season. With Hockenson out, Josh Oliver will likely step into the starting TE role for the Vikings but is not someone fantasy managers should rely on in their fantasy playoffs matchups.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings' are hoping to be surprised by Monday's MRI, but bracing for damage. We should have more information on Hockenson soon, but it appears he could be out for the season.
