Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson posted two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Hockenson has had just two catches in each of the past two games, and a total of 26 yards, but he has visited the end zone in each outing. Overall he has three scores in his five outings. He hasn't been terribly consistent, but he isn't a terrible bye-week replacement. He could see an uptick in production in Week 7 on the road against the awful Atlanta Falcons defense.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson caught two passes for nine yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hockenson posted his lowest yardage total of the season this week but was still able to record his second touchdown. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end but should not be a starting option in most leagues.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson pulled in four of his seven targets for 53 yards in Week 3 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: If nothing else, Hockenson has been amazingly consistent. He has either four or five catches in every game and between 53 and 62 yards. The second-year tight end was mostly invisible from the box score before the break, but the Lions seemed to make an effort to get him involved after halftime. Hockenson has been a solid floor player so far in fantasy, but he has a decent shot to hit his ceiling in Week 4 against a New Orleans Saints defense that has been getting hammered by tight ends thus far.

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Hockenson posted four catches for 62 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Hockenson has had a couple of decent performance so far, performing like a low-end TE1 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Lions meet the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson posted five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown on his five targets in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: There is something about openers that tickles Hockenson, as he had a career-high 131 receiving yards and a score in his NFL debut in Week 1 of the 2019 season. He had just 26 catches, 236 yards and one TD in the other 11 games, so fantasy owners hope he can do a little better this season.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (ankle) said Thursday, Sept. 10, that he is back at '100 percent' following ankle surgery at the end of the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Outside of a monster performance in his debut, Hockenson had a quiet rookie campaign. He is a popular breakout candidate in his second season, but fantasy owners shouldn't pencil him in for TE1 production just yet. He is a high-upside TE2.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (ankle) told reporters Monday, Aug. 17, that the ankle injury that caused him to finish his rookie season on injured reserve has been an issue for him this offseason and that it is still not quite 100 percent.
Huddle Up: Hockenson is a popular candidate to take a huge step forward in his second year, but this news is reason enough to bump him down a spot or two on positional rankings, especially given how deep tight end is in fantasy this season. Perhaps his ankle is not all that far away from 100 percent, but the safe play for now is to grab him as a high-upside TE2 instead of a low-end TE1.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Hockenson should return to practice in the next few days and will be the starting tight end for the Lions. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues this season.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Hockenson will be away from the team for a bit, but it is not known if he tested positive for the illness. He had a big Week 1 last season but had a disappointing rest of the season. Hockenson probably will be the starting tight end in 2020 but may only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (ankle) has been able to start running routes a part of his rehab but has not completely recovered from his ankle injury, according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
Huddle Up: Hockenson was limited to 12 games last season and finished with 367 yards and two touchdowns. He likely will see a decent amount of targets in the passing game this upcoming season but probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
