The tight end position has been a tough one to navigate this year. We have seen many flashes of greatness from various tight ends but consistency is a commodity that is hard to come by. Perhaps the most consistent asset at the tight end position this season has been the Arizona Cardinals. Luckily enough for owners of Jacob Hollister, he has a match-up with this tight-end friendly squad in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications below.

Fantasy football analysis, Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister

Since having breakout performances in Weeks 9 and 10, Hollister has faded back into the category of boom/bust tight ends. Unfortunately, his performances have been more of the bust variety lately, but an ideal match-up with the Arizona Cardinals may be his chance to turn things back around.

The Arizona Cardinals just can’t seem to figure it out when defending tight ends as they are the worst against the position in the league. Hollister has significant upside this week on a team that is favored to win by 9.5 points at home in a game that is expected to be high scoring with an over/under at 50.5. Owned in only 46% of ESPN leagues, Hollister may be worth a streamer if you’re struggling at the position.

Start/Sit Recommendation:
