  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: First touchdown of season

    Hockenson caught three of four targets for 18 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Vikings. On a day when Josh Reynolds paced the Lions in most receiving categories, Hockenson saw a downturn in targets after seeing seven in each of his first two outings of the year. Fortunately, he salvaged his fantasy day by snagging his first touchdown of the year on a bootleg that left Hockenson wide open in the flats. While fantasy managers still have yet to see a ceiling game out of the fourth-year tight end, it will be interesting to see if Hockenson could become a bigger priority in Detroit's short-area passing game if D'Andre Swift (shoulder) needs to miss time after suffering an injury for the second time in as many weeks.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Playing in Week 3

    Hockenson (hip) is listed as active Sunday at Minnesota. Despite having a cap on his practice reps during Week 3 prep, Hockenson will play through a hip issue Sunday. His output has been lacking through two games, with a catch rate of 50 percent and 4.6 YPT on his 14 targets. Fortunately for Hockenson, he's taking on a Vikings defense that has given up a league-worst 10.6 YPT to tight ends this season.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Sit Him (Lineup Decision)

    Hockenson is at best a low-end starter in PPR with the hope he catches more than half of his targets. I'm far more excited to start Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Deemed questionable, should play

    Hockenson (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Justin Rogers of The Detroit News suggests each of the four Lions listed as questionable is likely to play, including Hockenson and RB D'Andre Swift (ankle). The tight end managed limited practice participation Wednesday through Friday, putting him on track to be active ahead of the team's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday. If not, Brock Wright would be the best bet for snaps and targets at tight end for the Lions.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Another limited practice

    Hockenson (hip) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. Hockenson has opened Week 3 prep with back-to-back capped sessions as he deals with a hip injury. He'll look to log every rep Friday, but even if he's unable to, he doesn't seem to be a candidate to sit out Sunday in Minnesota. Friday's practice report could provide some insight into Hockenson's upcoming availability.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Able to practice Thursday

    Hockenson (hip) is participating in practice Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Hockenson was limited to begin the week Wednesday, and while the extent of his participation Thursday has yet to be clarified, it's good that he's able to take the field. The 25-year-old tight end doesn't appear to be in danger of sitting out in Week 3 against the Vikings, and he'll look to step up his production after mustering just 64 yards through two games.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bothered by hip

    Hockenson was a limited practice participant Wednesday with a hip injury. The injury is likely a minor one, given that Hockenson managed a limited practice after playing 89 percent of Detroit's snaps on offense in a Week 2 win over Washington. He's seen 14 targets through two weeks while handling an every-down role, but with only seven catches for 64 yards, Hockenson is still looking for his first productive day as a pass catcher ahead of Sunday's road game against the Vikings.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Meager production again

    Hockenson caught three of seven targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 36-27 win over Washington. Hockenson yet again saw a healthy amount of attention in the passing game, but he didn't do much with the chances he had outside of a fourth-quarter fingertip catch that went for 18 yards. Instead, Amon-Ra St. Brown remained the focal point of the Lions' passing game while D'Andre Swift, DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds saw a handful of looks. While Hockenson investors can at least take solace in the fact that the tight end ranks second on the team and top 10 among tight ends in targets in advance of Monday night's games, Hockenson will need to show heightened involvement near the red zone or as a downfield receiver in order to become a reliable fantasy option. Next up is a Week 3 road matchup with the Vikings.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Contrarian DFS Play

    Hockenson has fallen out of favor due to his disappointing 2021, but he still has as much target upside as any tight end in football and his Lions should be chasing the score against the Eagles. He saw eight or more targets in seven of his 12 games last year, including Week 1 when he scored 25.7 PPR Fantasy points against the 49ers. That type of upside can be a tournament-winner, especially at a low roster rate.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Gets reps in final preseason tilt

    Hockenson caught one of two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's preseason finale against the Steelers. Hockenson got rested in the Lions' first two preseason games, but head coach Dan Campbell decided to get his starting tight end some work before the regular season begins Sept. 11. The 25-year-old had his fifth-year option picked up this offseason following thumb surgery, and Sunday's preseason appearance confirms the tight end's clean bill of health heading into a Week 1 matchup against the Eagles. Hockenson should be considered a TE1 with some room for growth heading into the 2022 season.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Should be healthy soon

    Hockenson (thumb) recently said he'll be healthy for the start of the Lions' offseason program, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. "I'm almost there already, and it's only been a few weeks," Hockenson said. "Just a few more left, and I'll be 100 percent by the offseason." The tight end had surgery on his left thumb in mid-December, thus wrapping up the 2021 season with a 61-583-4 receiving line in 12 games (84 targets, 7.0 per week). Hockenson now enters the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, though the Lions presumably will exercise his fifth-year team option before the May 2 deadline. He should retain breakout appeal as he enters his age-25 season, especially if the Lions upgrade at other positions this spring. Hockenson is one of the core pieces of Detroit's rebuild and a true three-down tight end.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Moved to IR

    Hockenson (thumb) was placed on injured reserve Friday. The 24-year-old tight end had season-ending surgery Thursday on his left thumb, and he wraps up 2021 with 61 catches for 583 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games (84 targets). Hockenson should have plenty of time to recover before the offseason program, while Shane Zylstra and Brock Wright are left to take over at tight end for the final four weeks of the 2021 campaign.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Absent from practice

    Hockenson (hand) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Since turning in a limited session last Wednesday due to a left hand injury, Hockenson hasn't taken any reps in any of the Lions' subsequent four practices. He was listed as doubtful before being placed on the inactive list for last week's loss to the Broncos, and unless he gets back on the field in some capacity Friday, Hockenson will likely carry a designation into this weekend's contest against Arizona, if he's not ruled out beforehand. Backup tight ends Shane Zylstra (63 percent of offensive snaps, six targets) and Brock Wright (55 percent, five targets) saw similar workloads and involvement in the passing game while Hockenson was sidelined in Denver.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: No practice Wednesday

    Hockenson (hand) won't practice Wednesday, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports. Hockenson couldn't suit up for Detroit's Week 14 loss to Denver, and though head coach Dan Campbell said he's "hopeful" the tight end will return for Week 15, Burke theorizes that Hockenson is trending in the wrong direction. In any case, Hockenson will almost certainly need to return to practice in at least a limited fashion by Friday to have a shot at suiting up in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Doubtful for Sunday

    Hockenson (hand) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Denver, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Hockenson was a limited practice participant Wednesday before sitting out Thursday and Friday, with Detroit beat reporters noticing a heavy wrap over his left hand. The Lions are woefully thin for the upcoming contest, with around half the roster missing practice time this week due to some combination of injuries, a flu bug and COVID-19. With Hockenson likely missing the upcoming game, Brock Wright figures to step in as Detroit's top tight end.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Misses practice again

    Hockenson (hand) didn't practice Friday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Coach Dan Campbell acknowledged RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is unlikely to play this week but didn't make any similar comments about Hockenson. The tight end has now missed back-to-back practices after a limited session Wednesday, with Friday's injury report potentially revealing if he's in real danger of missing the game in Denver on Sunday.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Dealing with hand issue

    Hockenson (hand) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report. The hand injury is a new health concern for Hockenson after he avoided practice limitations since Week 8 prep. During that five-game stretch, he put together a 23-224-2 receiving line on 31 targets. Assuming he gets past the current issue by week's end, Hockenson again will serve as one of the Lions' top receiving options, but who will be throwing him passes is a question mark with Jared Goff unable to practice Wednesday due to an illness.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Snags another touchdown

    Hockenson caught four of eight targets for 49 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota. Hockenson found the painted area for the second straight week as his up-and-down usage continues. Through 12 games, the tight end has seen eight or more targets eight times while seeing three or less targets in the remaining four games. If D'Andre Swift (shoulder) remains sidelined in Week 14, fantasy managers will need to hope that Hockenson doesn't get schemed out of the game plan by a decent Denver secondary.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bounces back with six receptions

    Hockenson recorded six receptions on eight targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Browns. After failing to find the stat sheet against Pittsburgh in Week 10, Hockenson bounced back to record at least six receptions for the fourth time in his last five games. His biggest gain of the day came late in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard reception, though the drive ultimately stalled and concluded in a punt. While he was otherwise limited to short-area catches, Hockenson has now topped 50 yards in five contests this season heading into a Week 12 matchup against the Bears.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Snags double-digit receptions

    Hockenson caught 10 of 11 targets for 89 yards during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Eagles. Seeing more than double the number of targets as the next closest player on the team, Hockenson was the only avenue through which the Lions were able to find success. Through eight games, the tight end has now seen at least eight targets six times, which is a claim that only one other tight end in the NFL (Travis Kelce) can make. While Hockenson won't have Kelce's upside as long as Jared Goff is throwing him the ball, his usage rate is elite and it's likely that Hockenson is just approaching his physical peak. The No. 8 pick of the 2019 NFL Draft will remain a top fantasy option when the Lions return from their Week 9 bye.
