Top Sleeper: TE Austin Hooper

The Cleveland TE has had quite the roller coaster of a year. Baker Mayfield just hasn’t quite been the guy the Browns front office was hoping he’d be, but luckily for them, this team is absolutely loaded. Across the board.

Most of the attention will be around Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt as usual, however, the Tennessee Titans defense is one of the worst in the league when it comes to stopping the pass. And to be a little more specific, they have trouble guarding the TE position.

In their last 2 games, Tennessee has allowed 138 yards and 2 TDs just to the opposing TEs (Mark Andrews and Trey Burton). This game will be close throughout, as this one is featuring two potential playoff teams.

Austin Hooper will have an opportunity to make some noise this week. TEs have been hard to figure out this year, so your best bet is to find the best mismatch. This play makes the most sense. Trust the Play-action wizard Kevin Stefanski to rely on Hooper against this dreadful D.
