Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
You can make a case for starting James at Tampa Bay this weekend, but with Vance McDonald getting healthy and all the weapons Big Ben has in the passing game, you will likely be better off expect James to fall back to an everyday tight end rather than a fantasy starter. 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Hooper cleared 50 yards for the first time since Week 1 of 2017 and snapped a 10-game touchdown drought (including the playoffs). He's going to need more than one good game to prove worthy of a fantasy roster spot, especially since the Saints yielded a combined six catches for 74 yards to O.J. Howard and David Njoku.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 After struggling to connect with Ryan in Week 1, the Falcons made Hooper a bigger part of the gameplan against the Panthers last week, targeting him five times and completing each one for 59 yards and a touchdown. It was the first time he'd topped 50 yards since Week 1 of last year, so don't get too excited. The Saints played two much better tight ends over the first two weeks (O.J. Howard and David Njoku) and held them to just six catches for 74 yards combined. Hooper is an afterthought in a defensive coordinator's gameplan, so he'll have those weeks every now and then, but you shouldn't be banking on it this week.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Tampa Bay D has been torched by fantasy tight ends early in the year, James could be a good streaming play on MNF.
