ATL TE Austin Hooper - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Seattle Seahawks
UPDATE: The over/under dropped from 53 points to 50.5 points on Saturday, after Ryan was ruled out. The total is still over 50 but the game is less likely to turn into a shootout with Schaub starting over Ryan.

Through 7 weeks, Hooper is the half PPR TE1. In Week 7, had four receptions on five targets for 46 yards, one touchdown, 15% of the team targets, and 14% of the team air yards.

Matt Ryan has been ruled out but Schaub has a history of targeting tight ends frequently. Hoope is still a safe play with Schaub as the starting quarterback. Seattle is fifth-worst against tight ends, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Hooper ranked as the half PPR TE3. Hooper is a safe start across all league formats.
