T.J. Hockenson - TE
The criticism of T.J. Hockenson should be long gone after what he has done over the last handful of weeks. He has grinded through injury, and given the Vikings a fighting chance in the passing game with so many players sidelined.
On Sunday, Hockenson took blow after blow but continued to fight as he caught 11 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown, most of which came in the first half. He left the game on a few occasions but was resilient enough to get back out there and help his team win.
After a slow start to his season that had many questioning his toughness, Hockenson has been about as reliable as they come. As of right now, he is the team's MVP in my book simply because he has been able to consistently make plays down the field when he is needed the most.
Justin Jefferson should hopefully be back soon, which will take some of the pressure off of Hockenson in the passing game. He has taken a beating the past few weeks, but he still shows up every Sunday and gives his all, and that's why Josh Dobbs is so comfortable throwing to him.
This was an incredible performance from Hockenson. He is playing like a superstar for the Vikings right now.
