What to do with T.J. Hockenson in Week 4 fantasy football

The Iowa product has shown consistency through three weeks of the regular season and will look to explode against New Orleans this Sunday.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

T.J. Hockenson did his part in helping the Detroit Lions upend the red hot Arizona Cardinals in their 26-23 victory last week, hauling in four passes for 53 yards in the win.

The second-year product leads the Lions in receiving so far and will look to more damage when welcoming the Saints to Ford Field this Sunday.

Fantasy Football analysis: Lions TE T.J. Hockenson

While only sporting a single touchdown this season, Hockenson has made the most of his catching opportunities by bringing in 13 of his 16 targets for a healthy 171 yards.

While not necessarily explosive, he’s remained consistent by averaging 12 fantasy points per game in DFS and 7.7 points in ESPN leagues. The return of Kenny Golladay may potentially cut into some of his targets but he’ll continue to remain one of Matthew Stafford’s favorite weapons as the season moves along.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

The Saints’ defense have given up the most points to opposing tight ends this season so Hockenson is a definite start.
