In the final game of the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks travel to the "Frozen Tundra" to take on the Green Bay Packers. With injuries on the offensive side of the ball, it will take a solid game from everyone for Seattle to pull out the win. One of the players in a position to step up is tight end Jacob Hollister.

Hollister took over at tight end once Will Dissly went down to a season-ending injury in the regular season. While he has not replicated the same level of production of Dissly, Hollister has still performed admirably for a player with very little expectations, totaling 349 yards and three touchdowns this season.

As the lead tight end for Seattle, he has averaged 5.7 targets per game, showing how big of a role the tight end has in the Seahawks' offensive system. Seeing that kind of volume against the Packers today could prove to be fruitful.

Green Bay finished 16th against tight ends for fantasy production this season, but that ranking benefits from the weak tight end schedule. Here is a list of fantasy-relevant tight ends the Packers faced this season, including how many fantasy points they scored: Zach Ertz (13.5), Dallas Goedert (9.6), Jason Witten (5.9), TJ Hockenson (6.1), Darren Waller (31.6), Travis Kelce (16.3), Hunter Henry (15.4), Greg Olsen (17.8) and George Kittle (24.9).

Hollister is ranked as TE5 in our Divisional Round PPR rankings, but he has the opportunity to be the top scoring tight end of the week, based on matchup and Saturday's poor tight end fantasy performances.
