Depth Chart
With T.J. Hockenson shipped to the Vikings mid-season, Detroit stitched together the position for the remainder of the year. Enter LaPorta, the 2nd round pick from the tight end farm of the Midwest, The University of Iowa. There have been 12 tight ends drafted from Iowa while Kirk Ferentz has been the coach and more than a few have gone on to become fantasy names. The Lions, and LaPorta hope to be the next. Historically, this is a position to avoid in fantasy if it's a rookie, especially one with good, but limited physical skills. LaPorta was extremely productive in college, but nothing leaps off the page. He was developed by some of the best tight end coaches in college, but will take time to find his place in the NFL. Look for him to learn and grow as the season goes on, and eventually solidify the position for the Lions, but there are plenty of other places to look for fantasy production.
