Tight End Outlook Week 14

Austin Hooper (TE2) has missed three consecutive games since sustaining an MCL injury. However, fantasy owners may be getting an early Christmas present this Sunday. Hooper returned to practice on Monday, which is a major step forward for the TE’s potential return to the playing field in Week 14.

Prior to injury, Hooper was the highest-scoring fantasy player at his position with 17.2 points per game. He will have a great chance of picking up where he left off, as long as he’s active this week against the Carolina Panthers.

While the Panthers have been stingy against tight ends for most of the season, they’ve allowed an average of 81.3 receiving yards to starting TEs over three of their last six games.

With Gerald Everett out of the Los Angeles Rams lineup in Week 13, Tyler Higbee (TE15) exploded onto the scene, racking up seven receptions for 107 receiving yards, while leading all tight ends with 23.7 fantasy points.

Higbee has a juicy matchup lined up for himself this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle allows the fourth-most fantasy points and the third-most receptions to the tight end position this season.

With that said, Los Angeles has a plethora of mouths to feed within their offense and Higbee is nowhere near the top of the totem pole. Jared Goff’s play has also been very Jekyll and Hyde throughout the majority of the season. Plus, let’s not forgot that Gerald Everett was a hot fantasy commodity himself before flaming out prior to his injury.

Higbee is worthy of a look this week, but don’t expect the same super output from a week ago.
