T.J. Hockenson, TE (DET)

Snags Thanksgiving touchdown

Hockenson secured three of three targets for 35 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's 16-14 loss to Chicago.

Not only did he enter the week outside the top 60 players in terms of red-zone targets, Hockenson has now seen eight or more targets seven times while logging three or less targets in the other four outings. While this up-and-down usage has occasionally hindered his fantasy output, the Iowa product managed to overcome his minimal usage Thursday by snagging a 17-yard score in the third quarter. However, that was just his second touchdown since Week 2, and it may be difficult to build upon this performance in Week 13 against a Vikings defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points to tight ends in 2021.
