Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
At the beginning of the 2021 NFL season, fantasy managers were jumping up and down with excitement due to what Hockenson was doing on the football field. He started off the year with back-to-back top-5 fantasy finishes and appeared to be well on his way to helping people win fantasy championships. Unfortunately, since that point, Hockenson has only finished inside the top-5 again on the week just once! Additionally, he has also finished outside the top-12 TEs in six other games so far this season. With the team performing so poorly around him and the QB play being less than ideal, Hockenson has struggled to produce the types of numbers that we saw at the beginning of the season. With that being said, he's still absolutely worth playing every single week at the TE position due to his talent and his role in this offense. He only saw a 12% target share in Week 12 against the Bears, but he was able to cash in and find the end zone for the first time since week two. We shouldn't be expecting Hockenson to start finding the end zone regularly again, which means that he doesn't necessarily have top-5 upside every single week, but he's absolutely worth plugging into your lineup as a low-end TE1 in this matchup against the Vikings.Earlier on this season, Fant was seeing north of 7 or 8 targets regularly with so many proven receiving options out of the lineup. However, he has now seen just 14 targets over his last three games and has less than 15 receiving yards in two of those performances. There's the possibility that the Broncos need Fant more in this outing against their division rival, but fantasy managers have to ask themselves what the upside is to playing him at this point? There's enough going against him to downgrade him to a mid-range TE2 for Week 13.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hockenson is back on the upswing with 19 fantasy points in his last two games. He is a boom / bust TE1 against a Vikings D that is 3rd against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks.Fant is averaging only 4.8 fantasy points over his last 4 games and he looks like a low-upside TE2 against a Chiefs D that is 14th against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks.
