How to handle T.J. Hockenson injury in Week 10 fantasy football

T.J. Hockenson is on the Lions final injury report for Week 10. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Hockenson is ACTIVE for Week 10.

Game day update: Hockenson was a mid-week addition with a toe injury, but is expected to go in Week 10, per Ian Rapoport.

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson is officially listed as questionable on this week’s injury report. He has been bothered by a toe injury, but he was able to practice in a limited role on Friday after sitting out for Thursday’s session.

Fantasy impact: T.J. Hockenson (toe injury)

We may have to wait until the Lions release their inactive list on Sunday to know what Hockenson’s status is for this week’s tilt against the Washington Football Team. It is a good sign that he was able to get in some work on the last day of the week.

Detroit will need him this week since the team is going to be without wide receiver Kenny Golladay. Hockenson is an important part of the Lions offense, and one of the better options at a thin position in fantasy football. He has five touchdowns on the season, and four in his last five games. If he can’t play, Jesse James would take over his spot.
