 Leave Austin Hooper on your bench this week. He busted hard in Week 1, and he earned few targets (2) from Mayfield. Even though David Njoku landed on injured reserve, which should increase Hooper's usage in the passing game, there are better volume-based options to start over him. They include Logan Thomas, O.J. Howard, and, if Kittle sits, Jordan Reed. Hooper isn't necessarily a must-drop heading into Week 2, but if he can't perform with Njoku out of the lineup, he will be droppable for Week 3.
Kyle Yates

DeSean Jackson was in a prime spot to blow up last week, but he failed to live up to expectations. He was in and out of the lineup all game long and played only 37 snaps out of a possible 68. While there's reason to temper expectations with Jackson this week, he still belongs in your lineup as a FLEX option. All it takes is one big play and he can single-handedly win you your matchup.Austin Hooper is a sneaky start this week with David Njoku landing on IR. Harrison Bryant shouldn't see the amount of work that Njoku was and the Browns need another safe receiving option over the middle of the field. While Hooper disappointed in week one, he should bounce back with a nice performance in this matchup.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a disappointing day for the Eagles offense in Week 1, and that includes Jackson who was held to just two catches for 46 yards on a solid seven targets. We can't complain about the target total, though the more experience Jalen Reagor gets, the more he's going to cut into that number. The Rams cornerbacks did very well limiting the big plays against the Cowboys trio of receivers. They allowed the fifth-most receptions to wide receivers in Week 1, but again, when you play the Cowboys, that's going to happen. Gallup was the only one who averaged more than 11.8 yards per reception, and he wound up with three catches for 50 yards on five targets. Going back to last year, this Rams defense allowed just six plays of 40-plus yards, which ranked as the fifth fewest in the league. Jackson is someone who'll offer WR3 value during certain weeks, but you likely have better options this week. Still, he's on the WR4 radar as someone who should see six-plus targets.Remember when the Browns listed David Njoku as the third-string tight end, then later that week he led the tight ends in targets and production? It's not like three targets is a lot but it was more than Hooper, who finished with just two targets in his first game with the team. I mentioned this offseason how the Vikings used their two tight ends last year, and it appears the Browns wanted to potentially use three tight ends, as even rookie Harrison Bryant was targeted twice. The tight ends combined for 7-of-39 targets, which is a measly 17.9 percent target share. Now that Njoku is on injured reserve, it's fair to say Hooper gets a big bump in the confidence department. The Bengals were without starting safety Shawn Williams last week and it led to Hunter Henry tagging them for 5/73/0, though it took him eight targets to get there, something we can't guarantee from him, even with Njoku out. There are now six tight ends who've hit double-digit points against the Bengals over the last 17 games, and five of them saw at least seven targets. I won't say Hooper gets there, but I'll still consider him a high-end TE2 considering Bryant is a rookie who can't be too involved.

 Hooper had a poor Week 1 showing, grabbing only two passes and ceding work (and a TD) to David Njoku. With news that Njoku hit the IR on Monday, Hooper shouldn't have to worry about competition at TE. There are plenty of mouths to feed in Cleveland's offense, but better days should be ahead. Next up is Cincinnati's defense, which allowed Hunter Henry to go 5/73 in Week 1.
