The tight end position took a big hit when Baltimore Ravens' tight end Mark Andrews suffered a more than likely season ending injury. However, even though the game has lost a top three tight end, there are others that have either held up their top spots and others who have emerged as tight ends to keep an eye on moving forward.

Here are the 5 must-start tight ends heading into Week 12.

5.) T.J. Hockenson vs. Chicago Bears

The number one tight end in fantasy this year is the obvious always must-start each week in fantasy lineups. Last week was his first week not getting double digit points since Week 4, despite the injury at quarterback to Kirk Cousins and it was just two games ago where he was targeted 15 times, bringing in 11 catches for 134 yards and a score. On Sunday night against the Denver Broncos, Hockenson was targeted just 7 times for 4 catches and 55 yards.

There is not much to think about when it comes to Hockenson. He had 8 targets for 6 catches and 51 yards in his last game against the Chicago Bears, a team that has a defensive unit that seems to be collapsing in the fourth quarter of each game. Don't even think about, start Hockenson.
