    Austin Hooper Bad Start for Week 15

    Thursday, December 14, 11:01 PM

    Atlanta Falcons' tight end Austin Hooper has something uniquely in common with fellow Falcons' wide receiver Julio Jones: they've both caught three receiving touchdowns this year. Hooper has caught two of those touchdowns within the red zone, and has a total of seven catches in the red zone this season. While Hooper's greatest detraction is the amount of talent he's surrounded by, he's still getting open when it counts. This week, Hooper and the Falcons travel to Florida as they play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday night. Hooper didn't find his way into the end zone when the Falcons played the Buccaneers in Week 12, and the chances aren't good for him to do so this week. The Buccaneers' defense has only allowed three touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, the second fewest in the league. Hooper isn't exceptionally gifted, and the Falcons have enough weapons to avoid having to force a pass into him. Hooper isn't worth the risk this week, especially with the fantasy championships on the line.
