Hooper had never posted nine receptions or double-digit targets in a game before doing both two weeks in a row. Before locking him down as a rest-of-season TE1, note that those surges came against the two worst defenses in terms of fantasy points allowed to tight ends. Let's see if he can do it against the Giants, who hadn't allowed a touchdown to the position until facing Zach Ertz in Week 6. While an acceptable bye-week filler, he's still not someone managers want to rely on every week.

The Giants are 11th against fantasy tight ends, Hooper is a TD dependent TE2 this week.
