Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's going to be difficult for any pass-catcher to be successful when Mayfield is throwing the ball as little as he is, though Hooper did see 22.7 percent of the targets last week. Still, he's topped 34 yards just twice all season and he's scored one touchdown on 40 targets. That's not upside you can't live without, though the matchup this week could present a floor that might entice you. The Jaguars have allowed a league-high eight touchdowns to tight ends. It's not due to a bunch of volume, either. They've allowed a touchdown every 7.9 targets to tight ends, which is more often than any other team in the league. While just one tight end has topped 57 yards against them, six tight ends have totaled at least 33 yards with limited volume. In fact, there's been just two tight ends who've seen more than five targets against them all year, which is likely due to the plus matchups everywhere else on the field. Now that they're not playing in the wind or rain, we could see them throw the ball a bit more and it's not like they have a bevy of wide receivers to target. Because of that, Hooper is a high-end TE2 this week. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Jacksonville has yielded the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing TEs this season, putting Hoop in a great spot Sunday. He's coming off a five-target week, and if he can see that type of involvement in Week 12, he could be in for a big week. Roll with him as a top-10 play here. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jags are 28th against fantasy tight ends, but Hooper plays on an offense that has not thrown a touchdown the last 3 weeks. Hooper is a low-upside streaming option.
