If you have Hockenson, there's no reason that you should be looking towards the waiver wire for an alternative despite his lackluster start to the season. His 70%-plus route participation easily helps him separate from the majority of tight ends across the NFL and he's playing in a game that projects to be high-scoring, suggesting he has a solid chance of scoring. Not to mention, he still owns a more than acceptable 17% target share on the year -- which should increase with both Swift and St. Brown out -- and Seattle's defense has allowed the 3rd-most receiving yards to tight ends this season.

T.J. Hockenson (hip) returns to practice Thursday

T.J. Hockenson (hip) returned to log a limited practice session for the Lions Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Hockenson may be the beneficiary of an increased target share in Week 4, with Amon-Ra St. Brown, D’Andre Swift, and D.J. Chark all sidelined at Thursday’s practice session. Consider Hockenson a mid-level TE1 in a favorable Week 4 home matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
