Big Week 6

Austin Hooper did not disappoint me this week with his production. He had a perfect matchup, and I predicted a huge week. He hauled in 8 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown which put him at the second-most fantasy points for tight ends this week. He also is the number one scoring tight end so far this season. This week he faces a tougher matchup against the Rams, but the Rams’ defense has been faltering the past few weeks. Tight ends average 59.2 yards per game against them which is on the higher end, so we could see another big week for Hooper and the Falcons, especially coming off a hot week. The number one scorer for this week is Hunter Henry. Henry suffered a knee injury in Week 1 that left him sidelined until last week. His return brought fireworks. He had 8 receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns. This came against a Steelers’ defense that had handled tight ends previously. Philip Rivers was definitely excited to have another top option to throw to. The Chargers only ran the ball 13 times while throwing it 44 times which raises Henry’s value. He will get thrown the ball a ton as the season continues. This week he faces the Titans. The Titans have allowed the second-most touchdowns to tight ends with four this season. While I don’t expect an exact replica of a game from last week, he is set up to have a good game this coming Sunday.

Bye Weeks

Ricky Seals-Jones had a good game last week against the Seahawks with 3 receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown. With David Njoku still out, he has emerged as the top tight end for the Browns. He caught his second touchdown of the season last week which is where most of his value is found. He doesn’t get a large enough share of targets to be a major tight end but if he keeps up his usage with deep passes that have resulted in touchdowns, he could have some value. We will have to wait to see after the Browns bye. Cameron Brate is another tight end coming off a big week but headed into a bye week. He has been getting shared targets with the other tight end for the Buccaneers, O.J. Howard, but Brate has been the one that finds the endzone as he did last week. His volume is not good just like Seals-Jones, but his ability to find the endzone has caught some eyes. We will also have to wait a week to see if Brate will find continued success with scoring touchdowns.

Good Matchups

Evan Engram has a very good matchup this week against the Cardinals. This is the team that Austin Hooper had a big game against last week. They have allowed more than one touchdown to a tight end per game on average as well as 90.6 yards per game. Engram did not play last week with a knee injury and is currently listed as questionable for Week 7, but if he does play, he has a great opportunity to return to his top tight end in the league status. Mark Andrews also has a great matchup this week. The Seahawks have allowed third-most yards to tight ends as well as three touchdowns. Andrews has already shown that he gets a lot of volume which I only expect to increase this week in a favorable tight end matchup.

Bad Matchups

Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle are both in for a tough time this week against the Texans. The Texans have kept tight ends to the third-least amount of fantasy points. Tight ends still haven’t scored a touchdown against them and they only allow 35.2 yards per game. I wouldn’t be putting either of them in your starting lineup this week, especially after seeing how little they were used against the Chiefs who have been on the good matchup end of the spectrum for tight ends. Darren Waller will have a tough time against the Packers. The Raiders’ receivers have been plagued with an injury bug which has led the eyes of the defense to Waller. This showed in their last game where his backup, Foster Moreau, led the Raiders in receiving. The Packers already don’t allow much to tight ends who average just 35 yards per game. Against the Raiders, they should be all over Waller. It is hard to sit someone as targetted as Waller but I expect a similar usage to Week 5 against the Bears.
