Here are your Week 3 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit.
Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints
After that uncharacteristic Week 1 performance by the Saints defense, they started to reel it back in against the Browns in Week 2. They’ll keep cranking it up against the Falcons and they’ve held the tight end under wraps. In Week 1, O.J. Howard had just two catches, followed up by David Njoku who had four. None of them for touchdowns, none of them broke 55 yards, which brings us to Hooper who is coming off a five-catch 59-yards and one touchdown performance against the Panthers. Last year, Hooper was targeted at least five times, in just six games. In touchdown dependent leagues, Hooper is too risky a play despite being in Matt Ryan’s radar through Week 2.
