Nerdy Football Analysis: Ross Dwelley (3-24) and Garrett Celek held down the fort at tight end last week for the 49ers and will do so again this week against the Cardinals. It’s hard to get excited about Dwelley as a fantasy option but the matchup couldn’t be any better as the Cardinals give up the most fantasy points to the position.

Update on the MCL sprain suffered by #Falcons TE Austin Hooper: He’s expected to be out about a month, source said. Not great news for the NFL’s leader in catches at his position. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Bad news for Hooper owners who will be without their tight end for the stretch run in fantasy leagues. Luke Stocker is the next man up at the position but he is more of a blocker. It won’t be surprising if the Falcons use more three wide receiver sets this week against the Panthers.
