      Atlanta will have to throw more so Hooper would be my choice.

      The script for Hooper is so much clearer for Hooper going forward. The Falcons have an elite WR1 and strength and explosiveness with their WR2, which means defenses don’t game plan to stop Hooper. They are content with him making small plays while hoping to slow him down in certain moments of the game. Hooper has a TD in three straight games and five TDs in his previous six starts. He scored over 14.50 Fantasy points in PPR leagues in seven of his eight games with the most success in three games (6/66/2, 9/130, and 8/117/1). Last year he caught eight passes for 54 yards on nine targets in two games against the Saints. New Orleans is 11th in TE defense (9.91 FPPG – 32/403/1 on 45 targets) with five teams scoring fewer than ten Fantasy points. The Seahawks are the only team to have success at TE (7/71/1) vs. the Saints. This matchup isn’t ideal, but game score should lead to a lot of balls in the air for the Falcons. I expect only a midteen score while drawing some ownership attention in the daily games.

      In the roller coaster ride of Fantasy games, Andrew went from an untradeable stud to a question start over the previous six weeks. His season started with two electric games (8/108/1 and 8/112/1) while facing two of the weakest defenses (MIA and ARI) in the NFL. Over the past six weeks, his output fell on the under side of the equation four times (3/15, 5/45, 2/39, and 2/21). Andrew did play well in Week 6 (6/99) at home against the Bengals. He’s on pace for 76 catches for 940 yards and six TDs on 116 targets despite working in a three TE rotation for the Ravens. Cinci has been surprisingly good defending TEs (8.46 FPPG – 26/358/1 on 39 targets) with six teams scoring under ten Fantasy points. The Bengals struggled the most defending TEs against BUF (4/70/1) and BAL (9/121). Andrews has been at his best when beating up on the poor kids in the NFL, which puts him in play this week.
