Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Waller is averaging 6.5 receptions over his last two games, and he faces a Jaguars defense that can't really stop anyone. If you have him, you're likely starting him considering how barren the position is. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Not that you were worried about targets for Waller, but he likely just gained another handful of them, as Foster Moreau was placed on injured reserve. It may not be much, but Moreau did get 1-3 targets per game and has caught five touchdowns, so we could see Waller a bit more in the red zone this week. He also happens to be going against a Jaguars team that's allowed a touchdown once every 9.7 targets to tight ends, which is second-worst to only the Cardinals. With how well teams have run the ball against the Jaguars, they haven't targeted their tight ends very often, but when they do, good things have happened. The 2.13 PPR points per target also ranks as the second-worst to only the Cardinals. While the Jaguars have seen just 68 targets all season from tight ends (16.6 percent), the Raiders have targeted tight ends on 33.9 percent of their attempts, which ranks third-highest in the league. Get Waller into fantasy lineups and expect him to do some damage.It was a disappointing return for Hooper in a plus-matchup where he caught just two passes for 32 yards on six targets against the Panthers. That's still a solid target total and the loss of Ridley will clear up even more in the offense. We did see Jared Cook come down with 64 yards and two touchdowns to start the game against the 49ers, but he was concussed. The Saints then had Josh Hill come in and record two catches for four yards and a touchdown of his own. It was crazy because the 49ers had allowed a ridiculously low 4.79 yards per target coming into that game, but the injuries have started to add up on their defense. Even with that massive game to the Saints tight ends, they've allowed the fifth-fewest points to the position, and still allow the fewest yards per target (5.40) by more than half of a yard. But knowing they're without Dee Ford, Richard Sherman, and maybe K'Waun Williams and Jaquiski Tartt, the matchup gets an upgrade. You want to start Hooper as a TE1 who's probably locked into six-plus targets, though his ceiling may not be massive.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are 14th against fantasy tight ends, Waller should be a solid TE1 at home this week.The 49ers are 5th against fantasy tight ends, but playing with QB Matt Ryan keeps him in the TE1 discussion.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 The 49ers have given up the eighth-most fantasy points to TEs over the past five weeks, and they we rank worse if Cook did not exit last week's game early. With Ridley out, Hooper should firmly be the second receiving option for Ryan and one of the go-to options near the goal line. He is a low end TE1 this week.
