We talked about Hooper's increased role last week and that trend continued in Week 6 when he saw six targets. He's now caught five passes in each of his last three games, which is certainly something streamers can rely on. He's still yet to top 57 yards and he's scored just one touchdown, but again, tight ends have not been reliant this year, so the targets and receptions are what we should be looking at. His target share percentage has gone 5, 17, 17, 23, 27, 21, so there's a clear escalation, especially with Nick Chubb out of the lineup. The Bengals have been a popular team to play tight ends against because of the volume they've seen. They've seen a league-high 56 targets through six games, even though they've been a rather efficient defense against them, as evidenced by the 1.69 PPR points per target they've allowed which is near the league average. But again, they have now allowed 56-plus yards to four different tight ends. It is worth noting that each of those tight ends have seen at least five targets, but now that Hooper is there, he should be considered a decent low-end TE1 streaming option.
