STREAM ALERT: T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears
If Howard is too risky of a play, another streamer that could see quality action is Lions’ rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson. He’s not been very productive this season but in the few times he has appeared in our starts articles, he has scored. Last week he was targeted seven times, the second highest total, and his 56 yards were also the second-highest he had. So he has some momentum going into a matchup where the Bears have uncharacteristically been bad at covering the position. Last week the Bears gave up 13 catches for 142 yards and a touchdown to Philadelphia’s two tight ends combined. Tight ends in general are averaging 6.5 receptions and 68.5 yards per game and 12.35 fantasy points in PPR leagues. With the Bears being tough on receivers and quarterbacks, running backs and tight ends have thrived.
