  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Held to 33 yards

    Hockenson recorded four receptions on six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Jets. Hockenson tied Adam Thielen for second on the team in targets, and he now has at least six targets in every game since joining the Vikings. He accounted for a significant portion of his production with a 13-yard reception early in the fourth quarter on a drive that resulted in the game-winning touchdown. Despite the consistent opportunity, Hockenson has now racked up fewer than 50 receiving yards in four consecutive games.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Finds end zone in win

    Hockenson brought in five of six targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 33-26 win over the Patriots on Thursday night. Hockenson was Kirk Cousins' top non-wideout target for the night, and he scored his first touchdown as a member of the Vikings with a one-yard grab late in the first half. Hockenson has quickly put together a robust 26-192-1 line over his first four games in Minnesota, sending him into a Week 13 home matchup versus the Jets with plenty of momentum.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Struggles with drops Sunday

    Hockenson caught five of nine targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 40-3 blowout loss to the Cowboys. Hockenson actually led the Vikings in receiving despite his meager output in an embarrassing loss. Minnesota's prized deadline acquisition struggled with drops Sunday, failing to pull in two throws that hit him in the hands on consecutive plays near the end zone. The 25-year-old is struggling to find separation in his new scheme, averaging just 7.1 YPC in three games since being traded after posting a mark of 15.2 with Detroit. Hockenson remains a premier fantasy asset due to his high target rate (9.3 targets/game with MIN). The athletic tight end is hoping to be thankful for his first touchdown as a Viking when Minnesota takes on New England on Thanksgiving.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Seeing heavy volume with Vikings

    Hockenson caught seven of 10 targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime win over the Bills. Hockenson has been targeted 19 times in two games with the Vikings, catching 16 of those for 115 yards. His steady diet of targets from Kirk Cousins has elevated Hockenson back into the upper echelon of the thin tight-end position, especially in PPR formats. The former Detroit tight end will face the Cowboys in Week 11. Dallas held Hockenson to four catches for 48 yards as a member of the Lions in Week 7.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Team-high catch total in debut

    Hockenson brought in all nine targets for 70 yards in the Vikings' 20-17 win over the Commanders on Sunday. The newly acquired tight end made quite the splash in his first game in Minnesota, posting a team-high reception total while checking in second in yardage and targets to Justin Jefferson. Hockenson's robust usage and the fact he outpaced Adam Thielen by six receptions overall could signal the dawning of a new day in the Vikings offense, with head coach Kevin O'Connell apparently willing to deploy Hockenson as much more of a pass-catching asset than he did Irv Smith (ankle). Hockenson's first opportunity to build on the standout effort comes in a tough Week 10 road showdown against the Bills.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    We'll see how Hockenson does in his first game with Minnesota, but he might not have a big outing this week against the Commanders. Washington has allowed just one touchdown to a tight end all season and limited Hockenson to three catches for 26 yards on seven targets in Week 2 when he was with the Lions. Hockenson has three games this season with at least 10 PPR points and four games with eight points or less. We could see Minnesota try to feature its shiny new toy, but Washington knows that also. Hockenson should only be considered as a low-end starter in most leagues for this week.

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Will have role against Commanders

    Hockenson will be a "key part" of the Vikings' offense Sunday against the Commanders, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Hockenson was traded to Minnesota on Tuesday, but he worked extra hours to get caught up on the team's game plan while preparing on a short week. Hockenson will almost certainly make his Minnesota debut Sunday, but it remains unclear exactly how much he will play. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Johnny Mundt take on a larger role as a receiver in Week 9 in the absence of Irv Smith (ankle).

  • Vikings' T.J. Hockenson: Dealt to Minnesota in surprise move

    The Vikings acquired Hockenson, a 2023 fourth-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round pick from the Lions on Tuesday in exchange for a 2023 second-round pick and a 2024 fourth-round pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. With Irv Smith expected to miss time due to a high-ankle sprain, the NFC North-leading Vikings swung a deal with one of their division rivals to secure a high-quality replacement in Hockenson, who should sit atop the tight end depth chart even after Smith returns. Hockenson had been the co-No. 2 option in the passing game for Detroit this season behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and was off to a strong start through seven games, producing a 26-395-3 line on 43 targets. He joins a similar situation in a Minnesota passing game dominated by another elite receiver in Justin Jefferson, but it's conceivable Hockenson could quickly challenge Adam Thielen (knee) for the No. 2 role. The tight end is due $9.39 million in 2023 after Detroit exercised his fifth-year team option earlier this year, but the Vikings could look to negotiate a longer-term extension with Hockenson next spring depending on how he performs over the back half of this season.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Team-high receiving yardage total

    Hockenson secured three of four targets for 80 yards in the Lions' 31-27 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Hockenson's yardage total paced the Lions on the afternoon and was largely the result of a game-long 58-yard grab in the first quarter on a drive that culminated in a D'Andre Swift touchdown reception. Hockenson's tally through the air was also his second highest of the season, and he's recorded multiple catches in six of his first seven games. He'll aim to play an integral role once again against the Packers in a Week 9 NFC North home clash.

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

    Hockenson (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Miami, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Neither do RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and WR Josh Reynolds (knee), while Amon-Ra St. Brown (concussion) is listed as questionable but tentatively expected to play. Hockenson has yet to miss a game this season despite frequently showing up on the injury report, and he's seen at least four targets in each game, albeit with 57 percent of his yardage and two of his three TDs coming in a single contest (Week 4 against Seattle).

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bumps up to limited Thursday

    Hockenson (knee) was limited in practice Thursday. After kicking off Week 8 prep with no on-field activity, Hockenson bumped up to a capped session Thursday and now has one more practice to get back to full before the Lions potentially give him a designation for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins. The offense as a whole is getting healthier with No. 1 RB D'Andre Swift (ankle/shoulder) avoiding any practice limitations this week, though top WR Amon-Ra St. Brown remains in the concussion protocol. If both are able to play this weekend, Hockenson, if active, would have more room to operate underneath.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Hockenson is one of a handful of tight ends who has the potential for modest yardage and touchdowns, so he's going to stick in most lineups. Pat Freiermuth, Tyler Higbee and Taysom Hill would start for me over him in non-PPR, but just the first two in PPR. I'm not ready to start Greg Dulcich over him; he's clearly a top-12 tight end.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Dealing with knee concern

    Hockenson didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee issue. Hockenson previously dealt with hip and foot injuries this season, but he's been able to suit up in all six of the Lions' games, earning between 76 and 91 percent of the offensive snaps on each occasion. With a new health concern in tow, his status should be watched closely as the week rolls along to ensure he'll be available this Sunday against the Dolphins. If active this weekend, Hockenson will be joined by top running back D'Andre Swift (ankle/shoulder) for the first time since Week 3 and likely wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (concussion), who were full and limited participants, respectively, at Wednesday's session.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Four catches against Cowboys

    Hockenson caught four of five targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Cowboys. Hockenson made a few nice catches, but Detroit's five total turnovers killed its most promising possessions and, ultimately, Hockenson's chances of finding the end zone. It probably didn't help him that the continued absences of D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and DJ Chark (ankle) were compounded by the loss of Amon-Ra St. Brown (concussion) in the first half. The resulting defensive focus on Hockenson seemingly led to the likes of Kalif Raymond, Brock Wright, Craig Reynolds, and Tom Kennedy seeing most of Jared Goff's pass attempts. However, with Swift and St. Brown potentially returning in Week 8 against Miami, it is possible the Detroit offense could get back on track sooner than later.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    It's not with much confidence, but I'll still take Hockenson over Kyle Pitts and Taysom Hill in PPR based on his opportunities, but I'll roll the dice with Robert Tonyan and Evan Engram over him in all formats.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bottled up by Patriots

    Hockenson caught one of four targets for six yards during Sunday's 29-0 loss to New England. With DJ Chark (ankle) and D'Andre Swift (shoulder) still sidelined and Amon-Ra St. Brown playing through an ankle sprain, the Patriots seemingly made sure to eliminate Hockenson from the Lions' game plan after the tight end put up prolific numbers against the Seahawks in Week 4. Hockenson was also a guilty party on at least one allowed sack from Patriots pass rusher Matthew Judon. With a Week 6 bye on deck, a Lions offense that entered the Week 5 leading the league in yards per game (436.8) will look to get back on track in Week 7 against the Cowboys.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Good to go

    Hockenson (hip) has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Foot and hip injuries have limited his practice participation, but Hockenson has played more than three-quarters of available snaps each week this year, and he broke out in a big way Week 4 with eight catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns in a 48-45 win over Seattle. That was with both DJ Chark (ankle) and Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) out of the lineup, and while Chark is ruled out for at least one more game, St. Brown is listed as questionable ahead of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday.

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

    Hockenson (hip) took part in practice Thursday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Among Lions skill-position players that didn't mix into drills Wednesday, Hockenson, DJ Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (ankle) got back on the field, while Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle), D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and Quintez Cephus (foot) did not. Hockenson's activity level won't be known until the team posts its second injury report of Week 5 prep, but his return to practice is a positive sign in advance of Sunday's game at New England.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Tending to hip issue

    Hockenson was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury. The Lions were without running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and wide receivers Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) and DJ Chark (ankle) in Week 4 against the Seahawks, and Hockenson benefited mightily, gathering in eight of 12 targets for 179 yards and two touchdowns. The aforementioned trio of players joined Hockenson on the sideline Wednesday, while Josh Reynolds (ankle) and Quintez Cephus (foot) also didn't practice. Considering the uncertainty in the skill-position ranks, Hockenson could be in line for another huge workload Sunday at New England, but first he'll have to practice and get rid of his injury designation.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Hockenson has been tough to trust this year with one touchdown and no games over 40 receiving yards. But he could be needed this week if Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) is out, and this is a great matchup against the Seahawks. Seattle has allowed two tight ends to catch five passes this season, and Jared Goff could lean on Hockenson in Week 4. Just keep an eye on his health since he popped up on the injury report with a foot problem Wednesday.
