2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Hockenson looked primed for a monster year after starting 2021 off with 19 targets, 16 receptions, 163 yards and two touchdowns in the first two weeks. There just wasn't much meat left on the bone after that, as defenses wisely realized Hock was the only receiving threat on the team. Touchdowns became a mere myth for Hockenson last season, as the inefficiency of the Detroit offense led to only 9 red zone targets for the young tight end.

So, what does 2022 bring? Well first off, the additions at receiver are sure to eat into Hockenson's target numbers, as the ball should be spread around more. At the same time though, his efficiency is sure to improve with theoretically less defensive attention. He enters the prime of his career with several solid, if unspectacular seasons behind him, and is likely going to be one of the team leaders in receptions. With some improved scoring chances, Hockenson could slide into the middle tier of TE1s with a chance to move up.

Lions trade T.J. Hockenson to Vikings
Lions get a 2023 second-round pick and 2024 third-round pick
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 1, 11:24 am

Detroit Lions
Trade! The #Lions are sending TE T.J. Hockenson to the #Vikings, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Minnesota sends a 2023 second-round pick and 2024 third-round pick to Detroit for Hockenson, a 2023 fourth-round pick and a 2024 conditional fourth-round pick. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A trade within the division is somewhat surprising. The Vikings are going to be without Irv Smith for a couple months due to an ankle injury suffered in Week 8 so a need a tight end was there. This is basically a lateral move for Hockenson's fantasy value. He'll be competing with Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen for targets.


Injury Lions downgrade D.J. Chark, Out for Week 4
Detroit struggling for playmakers

The #Lions downgraded WR D.J. Chark (ankle) to out and elevated WRs Tom Kennedy and Maurice Alexander. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions are heading into their Week 4 matchup against the Seahawks without D'Andre Swift, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Chark. Their projected starting three receivers will be Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus. Reynolds and TE T.J. Hockenson should get the most looks from Jared Goff.


Injury Amon-Ra St. Brown, D'Andre Swift, not expected to play
Ankle injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 11:15 am

Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions are expected to be without their leading receiver and leading rusher when they host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Ford Field. Receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and running back D’Andre Swift are all-but-officially ruled out because of ankle injuries, while Swift is also tending to a sprained shoulder. (MLive.com)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will be testing their depth when they take on the Seahawks in Week 4. Jamaal Williams is expected to get the start at running back and we should see a little bit of Craig Reynolds sprinkled in. D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds should be the main targets on the outside and we could see a little more work for TE T.J. Hockenson this week.
