FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Austin Hooper (knee) reportedly out for Falcons 'about a month'

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper is expected to be sidelined "about a month" with a sprained MCL, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

What It Means:

That would mean a Week 15 return, which is typically the fantasy football semi-finals in most leagues, for Hooper. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley should dominate targets from Matt Ryan while Hooper is out. Luke Stocker and Jaeden Graham are unlikely to do much. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn has already said that Hooper is a "long shot" for Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Hooper is averaging 14.1 FanDuel points per game. He has 56 catches for 608 yards and 6 touchdowns on 67 targets.
