It really stinks that we can't start Hockenson with too much confidence, as his 14.9 percent target share is teetering on good, but given the lack of volume from Stafford, it's limited Hockenson's opportunity. He's seen at least four targets in every game but has seen more than five targets just once. He's totaled just 26 yards over the last two weeks combined, and they were great matchups against the Saints and Jaguars, so it causes a bit of concern, but not enough to keep him out of lineups against the Falcons. They have already allowed five tight ends to post top-12 numbers, and that's not even including Kyle Rudolph's No. 18 finish last week. The only tight end who didn't finish with top-12 numbers was Ian Thomas, who finished his game with one target. As a whole, they've allowed an 81.6 percent completion-rate (2nd-highest), 8.94 yards per target (5th-highest), and a touchdown every 7.0 targets (2nd-highest). All of that amounts to a massive 2.57 PPR points per target. Start Hockenson as a strong TE1 this week.

T.J. Hockenson scores again in Sunday's victory

T.J. Hockenson brought in two of five targets for 17 yards and a TD in the Lions’ 34-16 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hock had another small day in the receiving column, though he was the only Lions’ pass-catcher to haul in a touchdown. He’s racked up a 17/197/3 receiving line through six weeks and is a locked-in TE1 moving forward. He could be in for a big game against a porous Falcons’ defense that just gave up 102 yards to the Vikings’ duo of Irv Smith Jr. and Kyle Rudolph, who are not typically featured in the offense.
