Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Hockenson did have the big week to open the season and plenty of upside moving forward, but he hasn't done anything since Week 1 and now draws a horrible matchup against the Vikings so he belongs on your bench again this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Minnesota is 21st against fantasy tight ends, but Hockeson is not much more than a TE2 streamer most weeks. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Hockenson hasn't been much of anything since his Week 1 explosion. He did drop a touchdown last week, but it feel like he is solely touchdown dependent from here on out. However you value Jimmy Graham or Eric Ebron, Hockenson is on par with them. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 At first glance, Ebron seems like a solid streaming option, but there's a reason he's on the waiver wire. He has exactly one reception in three games this season, and in the other two, he has three receptions. The Colts watered down passing offense simply doesn't have enough to go around to make Ebron a weekly starter.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's been a bumpy ride for Hockenson, as he's failed to top 27 yards in each of his last four games. He almost hauled in his third touchdown of the year, but when he landed hard on the ground, the ball popped out of his hands. He's seen at least three targets in every game, which is not the highest floor, but among tight ends, it's somewhat appealing in 2019. Hockenson's top two performances this year came in games he had a great matchup (ARI, KC), so maybe we just pay attention to the defense to dictate whether or not we trust him. The problem with that is we have a mixed bag in Week 7 against the Vikings. They've allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to tight ends, but that's almost solely to do with the fact that they've seen 64 targets (over 10 targets per game), which is the most in the NFL. When you play against Darren Waller, Austin Hooper, Evan Engram, and Zach Ertz, your numbers are going to look a bit worse than most. Somehow, despite that competition, they've allowed just 1.30 PPR points per target, the third-lowest mark in the league. Hockenson is not a preferred option this week.
