Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He's likely looking at a multi-game absence with his sprained MCL. Atlanta will use some combination of Luke Stocker and Jaeden Graham to replace Hooper, but neither guy is a fantasy option. Hooper's absence just means more targets for WRs Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper is expected to miss "about a month" with his sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That timeline would have him back around Week 15. It's tough break for fantasy's current #1 TE across scoring systems. We'd try to hang on to Hooper, who should be back to TE1 status for the final few weeks of the season.

Update: HC Dan Quinn denied the report, saying it "didn't come from our building," according to Kelsey Conway of the team website. Don't drop Hooper on the Rapoport report. We'll see whether the team does tell us any more.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited in practice all week, though, after playing a season-low 51% of the offensive snaps last Sunday. It’s worth noting that Hooper only practiced on Friday last week. He’s seemingly healthier now but still comes with elevated risk in Week 16 fantasy lineups.
