2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Hockenson made a huge leap in his 2nd season, finishing 2nd on the Lions in targets (101), receptions (67) and yardage (723), and figures to improve upon those numbers in 2021 with the loss of Detroit's top two receivers. While Williams and Perriman are better suited as situational deep threats, Hockenson figures to soak up the short and intermediate targets, an area of greater strength for Jared Goff. On an offense that figures to be run-heavy, and mediocre at the same time, the cap on Hock's scoring potential is the only thing keeping him from joining the truly elite fantasy tight ends. He should certainly thrive in PPR leagues as he's my bet to lead the team in targets and receptions. Outside Kelce, Kittle, and Waller, the tight end position is as fickle as the weather, so Hockenson has as good of a chance as any to find a home in the top-8.

T.J. Hockenson on track for 1,000 yard season?
Reports say TE is "building great chemistry" with Lions QB Jared Goff
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 7, 10:32 am

Detroit Lions
ESPN's Eric Woodyard writes in his "bold predictions" preview that 2020 Pro-Bowler T.J. Hockenson put in lots of work this offseason alongside former Iowa teammate George Kittle and "is already building great chemistry" with QB Jared Goff. Last season, Hockenson finished with 67 catches for 723 yards. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: A 1,000 yard season might be a stretch, but the expectations for Hockenson, who's dealt with nagging injuries his first few seasons in the league, are pretty high heading into 2021. We have him as our No. 6 overall TE projected for 72-787-5 this year, but it's true that he's a very talented player on a team without too many great skill positions players.


Injury Lions release WR Breshad Perriman
Expected to start when signed in March

Detroit Lions
First of many cuts this week is a notable one: Lions have released WR Breshad Perriman, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Given the lack of depth at position Perriman was penciled in as a starter once he was signed back in March. Now he's released. Tyrell Williams is the clear No.1 wideout for the team with Kalif Raymond and Rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown working as the other starters. Quintez Cephus is serving as the No.4 option. Williams and tight end T.J. Hockenson are the only viable options in drafts right now.
