The Titans are 25th against fantasy tight ends, Hooper is a boom / bust TE2 on the road this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Just like everyone else in this offense, you run the risk of low volume with Hooper. Those worst fears were realized in Week 12 when he saw just two targets, but fortunately, he turned one of them into a touchdown. This team is also continually running 2TE sets, which also allows for guys like Harrison Bryant to steal targets (he saw two targets as well in Week 12). The matchup this week is a good one for him to bounce back in the target column. Titans opponents have thrown the ball 39.8 times per game, so if we get near the 20-percent target share that Hooper has had multiple times this year, we should hope to get 6-8 targets. Tight ends have averaged a sturdy 6.9 targets per game against the Titans, and efficiency has been good, too, as the 2.09 PPR points per target they've allowed suggests. There have been a league-high seven tight ends who've scored at least 10.6 PPR points against the Titans, which is the average number of points it took to finish as a top-12 tight end last year. Hooper should make for a solid low-end TE1/high-end TE2 in this game.
