Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper will reportedly miss a month with a sprain MCL he suffered Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Update on the MCL sprain suffered by #Falcons TE Austin Hooper: He’s expected to be out about a month, source said. Not great news for the NFL’s leader in catches at his position.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 13, 2019
Not great news for the best tight end in fantasy right now. If you’re a Hooper owner, likely you’re in a pickle now given just how barren the position has been this year. Some names likely on your waiver wire you can take a gander on include O.J. Howard (I promise he’s done something this year), Jacob Hollister (he’s on bye this week but the Seahawks love their tight ends) and Tyler Eifert (who caught a touchdown last week with Ryan Finley under center).
