We go over TJ Hockenson’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Lions Week 10 matchup against Washington.

The tight end position has been particularly tough to navigate this season, with fantasy owners searching for consistency. T.J. Hockenson has the fourth highest points per game average this season, with 12.8, and has received an average of 6.1 targets per game. He is an integral part of the Lions offense and, thus far, has provided the consistency that owners seek so much. Will Hockenson continue to produce for fantasy owners against the Washington Football Team in Week 10? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Lions TE TJ Hockenson

The Washington Football Team defense, while tough on the ground, has actually allowed the seventh most points to opposing tight ends this season. Opposing tight ends have also managed to haul in six receiving touchdowns this season. Hockenson has been on a roll lately, with three straight double digit performances. Odds are he will continue on that roll in Week 10 and he should be inserted in lineups as a bonafide TE1 this weekend.

Hockenson is considered questionable with a toe injury, so we will need to triple check that he is playing, but as long as he is, he remains a must start.
