2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Lions whiffed when they used the No. 10 pick on Eric Ebron five years ago, but they took a similar swing this spring, tabbing Hockenson with the No. 8 selection. Hockenson won the Mackey Award as a redshirt sophomore, showing better hands and blocking chops than his physically gifted Iowa teammate and fellow first-round pick, Noah Fant. And then Hocksenson's stock improved at the combine, where he turned the drill list into his own personal edition of the Superstars, finishing top-two among TEs in the vertical jump (37.5 inches), broad jump (123 in.), three-cone drill (7.02 seconds) and short shuttle (4.18 sec.). His 4.70 time in the 40-yard dash, while comparatively unimpressive, was more than sufficient for a 251-pound player. Just keep in mind that tight end is the hardest skill position for rookies to make an immediate impact, and Hockenson will need to battle Jesse James for snaps this summer. Go crazy in keeper and dynasty drafts, but try to keep your cleats on the ground in redraft leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Receiving struggles continue

Hockenson caught four of six targets for 21 yards during Monday's 23-22 loss to Green Bay.
ANALYSIS
The bright side is that Hockenson showed no signs of a concussion and he ultimately finished second on the team in targets behind Kenny Golladay's nine. The flip side is that the rookie's inability to translate his usage into production was no fault but his own. Not only did Hockenson fail to extend a goal-line screen pass to the end zone early on, but he later dropped another potential touchdown in the corner of the end zone, failing to hang onto the ball after he hit the ground. Fantasy owners looking for the tight end to repeat his Week 1 production probably shouldn't hold their breaths when the Lions play host to a stout Vikings defense in Week 7.
