The Cleveland Browns have one of the best fantasy tight ends in the league at its disposal in Austin Hooper. David Njoku hasn’t lived up to the hype he had coming out of college. This week, Cleveland will look to get at least one of them going as they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Football analysis: Browns TEs Austin Hooper, David Njoku

Hooper is a top-10 fantasy tight end in terms of production and potential. He has the second most targets on the active roster with 40 and has hauled in over half of them. He also has a score through the air, which is tough to come by if you play for Cleveland.

Hooper’s targets were a bit down last week in the team’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He caught three passes out of the five thrown his way, averaging 11 yards per catch. This week against a Jacksonville defense that struggles against any offense, he could have a big day.

But Njoku has seen just four targets in the last three weeks combined, with just one catch in that span.
