Mike Gesicki Forces Fumble In 2023 Finale

Sunday, January 7, 8:21 PM

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki caught just one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. He dropped a pass in the end zone that would have given fantasy managers and the Patriots a key touchdown. On a more positive note, Gesicki made a clutch play in the contest, chasing down a defender after Bailey Zappe was picked off and forcing a fumble. He totaled 29 catches, 244 yards, and three touchdowns while spending most of this season behind Hunter Henry, who missed Week 18 with an ankle injury. The 28-year-old doesn't project to be a major fantasy contributor in 2024.

T.J. Hockenson Suffers Torn ACL, MCL, Will Be Placed On Injured Reserve

Tuesday, December 26, 4:18 PM

Minnesota Vikings tight end T.J. Hockenson (knee) suffered a torn ACL and MCL in the Week 16 loss to the Detroit Lions. He is expected to be placed on injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season. Given the late-season injury, the 26-year-old could start the 2024 season on the PUP list. The former first-round pick signed a four-year, $66 million contract this offseason with Minnesota. Hockenson had career-highs in receptions, receiving, yards, and targets during his first entire season with the Vikings. He caught 95 of 127 targets for 965 yards and five touchdowns over 15 games in 2023. Hockenson will likely undergo surgery in the next few weeks and looks to recover fully in 2024. Josh Oliver is expected to be Minnesota's top tight end with Hockenson sidelined. Fantasy managers searching for tight end help or a replacement for Hockenson can look to add Oliver in most league formats.
