Fantasy Football analysis: Browns TEs Austin Hooper, David Njoku
The Browns have been without Hooper since Week 6. He missed two games with an appendicitis, but he’s all set to return this week against the Texans. Hooper had been on quite a run before his injury. He had back-to-back games with more than 50 yards in Weeks 5 and 6, and the week before that he scored his first touchdown of the season.
Njoku has mostly been the odd man out for Cleveland this season. With Hooper on the shelf, he was targeted just six times in two games for a total of 39 yards. He did score his second touchdown of the season during that window. Opposing tight ends have scored four times against the Texans this season, and as units, they’re averaging nearly 60 yards per game.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Austin Hooper. Sit David Njoku.
