The Atlanta Falcons will once again be without tight end Austin Hooper as they prepared to host the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. Hooper sprained his MCL in Week 10 against the Saints, and has been sidelined ever since. Hooper continues working on the side with the training staff, but remains a DNP at practice.
It is also notable that fellow tight end Luke Stocker is listed as questionable. He did not practice at all this week, and if he too was unable to play, Jaeden Graham would get the start on Thursday.
Fantasy football analysis: Falcons tight ends
We’re left waiting another week for Austin Hooper, so next Wednesday’s report for Week 14 will be the one to watch. In the meantime, neither Stocker or Graham is worth starting, or even rostering in fantasy football. Matt Ryan will find plenty of other targets, but Stocker and Graham aren’t it.
