T.J. Hockenson Week 8 Outlook - Colts at Lions

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:44am EDT

His targets have consistently ranged from 4-7 per week, and he's been mighty efficient, as he's totaled at least 53 yards and/or a touchdown in every game. Despite ranking 17th among tight ends in targets, Hockenson is currently the No. 7 tight end in PPR formats. His next challenge is a tough one. The Colts are one of just two teams who've yet to allow a touchdown to tight ends. Of the fantasy production they've allowed to skill-position players, just 8.4 percent has gone to the tight end position, which is the lowest mark in the league. To this point, they've allowed just 3.72 yards per target to them, which ranks No. 1 in the NFL. Through six games, the Colts have allowed 134 yards to tight ends. That's bananas. The 0.84 PPR points per target is easily the lowest mark in the NFL, so it's probably best to be cautious with what you expect out of Hockenson this week. He's still in the low-end TE1 conversation but is far from a lock for top-12 production.
