What to do with Jacob Hollister vs. Eagles in playoff fantasy football

Don’t expect Jacob Hollister to increase his production for the Seahawks in their Wild Card round matchup against the Eagles.

The Seattle Seahawks will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card round on Sunday. Seattle be the visiting team but should benefit from the clutch play of quarterback Russell Wilson and Philadelphia’s poor secondary. But whether Jacob Hollister is a good choice at tight end for this weekend’s four-game slate remains to be seen.

Hollister has had a great year with the Seahawks, notching career highs in receptions (41) and receiving yards (349). But we aren’t sure how effective he can be in a playoff game.

Fantasy football analysis, Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister

Hollister has notched at least four receptions four times since Seattle’s bye in Week 11, but hasn’t reached the end zone since Week 10. The Seahawks haven’t made him a priority in red zone situations and he has only eclipsed 60 yards in two games this year. You shouldn’t expect much yardage or a score from him at this point.

Start/Sit Recommendation

Sit Hollister for a more consistent option in the Wild Card round.
