Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
Hockenson has put up decent yardage totals over the last two weeks, but has not yet reached the endzone in a month. He is still a viable starting tight end against the Bears who have not been great against opposing TE's though.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 46 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
The eighth overall selection in the 2019 draft kicked off his NFL debut with an impressive 6-131-1 outing on nine targets versus the tight-end friendly Cardinals defense. However, Hockenson, enduring typical rookie tight end ups and downs, caught just 26 more passes and visited the end zone only one more time in 12 games played before landing on season-ending injured reserve due to a major ankle injury. It goes without saying that nobody in the Motor City is giving up on Hockenson, and his sophomore season expectations are enormous. With 4.7 jets, Travis Kelce-esque athleticism and great hands, Hockenson is the complete package and a mismatch nightmare for linebackers and defensive backs since he can operate as a traditional "inline" tight end, a "move" tight end or an H-back. With a better understanding of the offense and a better feel for the NFL game, Hockenson is a sure bet for an expanded role - assuming his ankle is good to go - with a healthy Matthew Stafford back at the controls. Hockenson is a No. 2 tight sleeper with massive upside.

Receiving: 19 Receptions, 217 Yards, 2 TD.
