After lighting the fantasy world on fire in his NFL debut, Hockenson came back down to earth in Week 2, where most rookie tight ends live. The odd part is that the Lions gave more targets to Jesse James than him. Even Logan Thomas got a target, putting Hockenson's target share at just 37.5 percent among the tight ends in Week 2. Hockenson leads the tight ends with 59 routes run but James has run 26 routes as well, making this another semi-timeshare. That's unfortunate. The Eagles are a team that's completely shut down the tight end position since Doug Pederson came to town and have allowed just 10 tight end touchdowns over the last 50 regular season games. With the matchups available to their wide receivers, Hockenson isn't likely going to be a necessity. He's back in the middling TE2 conversation.

T.J. Hockenson uninvolved in win

T.J. Hockenson caught one of four targets for one yard in the Lions’ 27-24 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson was a non-factor yet again Sunday, racking up a measly one yard on four targets. The rookie’s incredible Week 1 bonanza is fading quickly in the rear view, and he can’t be started again until he shows some more chemistry with Matthew Stafford.
