Austin Hooper (TE, ATL) – 13% Owned
Despite being a backup for the majority of the year, rookie tight end Austin Hooper passed starter Jacob Tamme in receiving yards on the season—241 to 210—by catching 3-of-6 targets for 46 yards in Week 9.
How long Tamme will be out with this shoulder injury remains to be seen, but that the veteran is being outproduced by Hooper in such a short period of time isn’t hard to see. The Eagles make an incredibly difficult matchup for Hooper Week 10 if Tamme is unavailable again, but if quarterback Eli Manning can manage seven targets to his end Will Tye against them in Week 9, the NFL’s top passer Matt Ryan can give his end deep PPR value.
