The tight end position has been a nightmare so far this season, with owners having a hard time finding a reliable weekly option for their lineups. Hockenson has been one of those few reliable players for most of this season, though he disappointed in Week 10 when he managed only two receptions for 13 yards in a favorable match-up. Can Hockenson bounce back and reclaim his spot in the fantasy owners circle of trust in Week 11? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Lions TE TJ Hockenson

Prior to Week 10, TJ Hockenson managed to score more than nine PPR points in each game this season. He has the 4th highest average points per game at the position this season with 11.7. The Panthers have allowed the 6th highest PPR point total to opposing tight ends so far this season, boding well for Hockenson’s comeback game. He would receive an even bigger boost in value should Kenny Golladay remain out once again this week. Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola are also both dealing with injuries which could mean even more targets will be headed Hockenson’s way in this favorable matchup. Fire him up as a WR1 this weekend.
