Is Hockenson incredibly talented? Yes. Is there a case to be made that he can lead this Lions offense in targets? Absolutely. However, the expectations for Hockenson right now are sky high and it's hard to see how he returns value. The scoring opportunities are going to be essentially non-existent for this team and we could see them at the bottom of the league in overall plays ran. Hockenson can soak up targets this season, but if he doesn't score plenty of touchdowns, he's going to disappoint fantasy managers that drafted him as a top-5 TE. He's being drafted at his absolute ceiling right now and that's something I simply can't get on board with, unfortunately. I'm avoiding Hockenson this season if his ADP remains around where it is right now.

T.J. Hockenson continues to stand out in camp

It was reported by Kyle Meinke of MLive that Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson continues to stand out in camp.

Fantasy Impact

“That’s fun in training camp,” Hockenson said after catching a touchdown in practice. “Just things like that are fun. Being able to make plays. You get opportunities throughout training camp, and when the ball’s in the air, it’s yours. That’s your mindset all the time. That’s always fun.” After already taking a step forward from year one to year two, the Lions are in line to rely on Hockenson even more this season following the departures of Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. The targets Hockenson is set to see this year shouldn't be an issue. The biggest question will come down to how many endzone targets he'll see in this offense.
