Rookie T.J. Hockenson saw a career-high 11 targets in Week 13 but was then placed on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury that'd been bothering him. There were just three games all year he'd topped 32 yards, making him hard to trust as a streamer. The Vikings held him to just three catches and 32 yards in their first meeting, and that was with Matthew Stafford under center. Now putting James into that spot, it's going to be tough to recommend him as a streaming option. When fantasy owners look at fantasy points against, it's really misleading with the Vikings, who have allowed the 13th-most points to tight ends. They are a very good defense against the position. In fact, there's no team in the NFL who's allowed less on a per-target basis. The 1.29 PPR points per target they allow is much better than any other team, as the 49ers' 1.40 points per target is the closest. Volume has supported tight ends against the Vikings, something we cannot guarantee for James. Even if we could, when you combine the Vikings crazy efficiency, and James' miniscule 4.4 yards per target this year, it's not a great match for a streamer. Heck, it's possible Logan Thomas outproduces him.
