Brycen Hopkins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught 9 balls for 94 yards among a team-dominating 11 targets (39.3%). Higbee also claimed both of the team's TD receptions. No other Ram caught more than 3 passes. TE Brycen Hopkins' 57 yards (on 3 catches) ranked 2nd on the team. No other teammate reached 30 yards.

The Rams have added TE Tyler Higbee to the COVID list, knocking him out for tonight's game against the Cardinals. That leaves Kendall Blanton and Brycen Hopkins at TE for the team. Blanton led Hopkins 5-3 in routes last week. Hopkins, however, was drafted earlier (Round 4 vs. undrafted), enjoyed the much more productive receiving career in college and brings a 75th-percentile speed score and 73rd-percentile SPARQ-x score for the position, according to PlayerProfiler.com. If you need a desperation fill-in TE, we'd go with him. Higbee has averaged just 5.2 targets per game for the year, so we don't expect his absence to significantly impact the fantasy outlook for anyone else on the team. We'll see whether he can make it back for the team's Week 15 game against Seattle.
