Depth Chart
A 6-131-1 NFL debut in Week 1 last season seemed to instantly squelch the idea rookie tight ends can't be fantasy assets. Those 131 yards were actually an NFL record for a rookie tight end in Week 1! But alas, that game would go down as easily the best game of his first season, as Hockensen only surpassed 5 receptions and 50 yards in only one more time each before his season came to a premature end with an ankle injury during Thanksgiving.

The development of Hockenson in his second season is an incredibly important thing for this entire Detroit offense. As a top-10 pick at the tight end position he has to be a well-rounded, and a consistent threat that the defense must account for. How defenses respond to him is going to dictate how open the rest of the offense can be. I'm going to bank on this happening. With the tight end position in fantasy an annual crapshoot for the most part, Hockensen has the talent and offense to flirt with top-15 status. With his quarterback returning to health and plenty of defensive attention focused elsewhere, Hockenson is an upside option for those that like to stream the tight end position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury T.J. Hockenson expected to play
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 15, 7:15 am

Detroit Lions
#Lions TE T.J. Hockenson, who popped up on the injury report this week because of his toe, is expected to play today vs. the Washington Football Team, I’m told. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions tight end was added to the injury report on Thursday but should be able to gut it out today against Washington. Already down Kenny Golladay, the Lions need all the playmakers they can get.


Injury T.J. Hockenson draws a DNP on Thursday
TE added to injury report with toe issue

Detroit Lions
It’s a toe injury for T.J. Hockenson. (ESPN - Michael Rothstein)

FFToday's Take: Kenny Golladay (hip) also missed another practice Thursday. If both players sit this weekend, it would leave Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola as Matthew Stafford's top target against Washington. Hockenson has been one of the few dependable options at tight end in fantasy this year, so Stafford won't be the only one fielding the pain if he sits. Jesse James would presumably step up in his place and would be a reasonable pivot if Hockenson's owners are forced to go in another direction.


Injury Golladay, Hockenson miss practice Thursday
Hip injury for Golladay
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 12, 1:00 pm

Detroit Lions
From the pool: Kenny Golladay and T.J. Hockenson both sitting out practice today. Tracy Walker did return and did a little during the portion open to media. Same with Vaitai. Everson Griffen and Nick Williams appeared to do all individual work. (Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's looking like Golladay is trending towards missing another game with his hip injury. The reason for Hockenson's absence isn't known yet. The Lions tight end has seen 18 targets in the last two weeks and will be on the TE1 radar this week against Washington if he plays.


Injury Kenny Golladay listed as Doubtful
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 11, 4:15 pm

Detroit Lions
The #Lions have declared WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday’s game. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Golladay will likely join Mike Evans a high-profile receivers unable to make their season debut in Week 1. Marvin Hall may get some extra run as a result but fantasy owners will be focused on Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson.


Injury Kenny Golladay dealing with hamstring injury
Missed individual drills on Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 10, 3:24 pm

Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford's favorite target is dealing with a new hamstring injury three days before the Detroit Lions open the season against the Chicago Bears. Lions coach Matt Patricia said leading receiver Kenny Golladay suffered a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday that landed him on the injury report. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Golladay missed individual drills on Thursday. It sounds like he's going to end up as Questionable for the weekend but we should get a clearer picture after practice tomorrow. Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola and tight end T.J. Hockenson are next up on the priority list for Matthew Stafford.
