Hockenson (ankle) was not quite 100% in mid-June, according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. It's not known whether he had surgery, but he was on a knee scooter a month after the injury, which occurred on Thanksgiving


T.J. Hockenson entered his rookie season in 2019 as one of the most hyped tight end prospects in recent memory. He exploded out of the gates with six catches, 131 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against Arizona. After the big opening week, he was mostly a non-factor. In fact, Hockenson managed just 26 catches, 236 yards and 1 touchdown in his next eleven games before suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 13. It is not uncommon for rookie tight ends to struggle, so it was not surprising that Hockenson mostly struggled in 2019. He has breakout potential in 2020 if the game starts to slow down for him. It is also possible that Hockenson is another year or two away from emerging as a real impact player at the position. Hockenson will be a popular sleeper tight end pick with moderate fantasy upside.

Lions | T.J. Hockenson on COVID list (Wed Jul 29, 06:18 PM) - Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, July 29.

Our View: Hockenson will have to pass tests after a quarantine period in order to get on the field for practice. He's got plenty of upside but only flashed for a game or so as a rookie in 2019. Hockenson is a TE2 for Fantasy GMs as we all wait for him to play up to that potential.
