2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The most complete tight end to come into the NFL in some years, "Hock" was the 8th overall selection of the 2018 draft, and should instantly become an important piece of the Lions offense. Coming from a pro-style system at Iowa, Hockenson is a highly gifted athlete well versed in a varied route tree. More than just a move tight end, Hockenson drew raves for his blocking and tenacity in college. Hockenson was a deep threat, but also displayed the savvy to run drag routes and get open in tight spaces. He plays fast in his 6'5" 251 pound frame, and gives the Lions some stability at a position they haven't been able to figure out in a long time.

Measurables and college production aside, understand that rookie tight ends rarely are fantasy relevant. Most of the current elite tight ends were nearly invisible their rookie seasons, but few of them had the talent and polish to be top-10 picks. With the addition of former Steeler Jesse James, the Lions will likely employ a decent amount of "12" personnel, or 2-tight end sets, with T.J. being the "move". Hockenson's ability as a pass catcher and the shallow depth at the position should definitely earn him a look as a TE2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury T.J. Hockenson headed to IR
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 2, 1:35 pm

Detroit Lions
T.J. Hockenson is headed to injured reserve with an ankle injury. His rookie season is over. (Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hockenson started the year with a bang (6-131-1) but never topped 56 yards in a game since and currently sits as the TE20 overall. Jesse James and Logan Thomas are next up on the Lions depth chart but neither are recommended fantasy options with Matthew Stafford still sidelined with a back injury.

Injury T.J. Hockenson OK after scary fall
Dealing with concussion, no worry about shoulder
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 30, 4:50 pm

Detroit Lions
Patricia says T.J. Hockenson is in concussion protocol. No concern about a shoulder injury. (Pride of Detroit)

FFToday's Take: ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted earlier in the day that Hockenson would not be placed on IR, making it sound like the rookie would be missing significant time. As it turns out, it sounds like he may not even miss a game if he can pass through the protocol fairly quickly as Detroit goes on its bye in Week 5.
