Summary

Hooper has progressed well through his three NFL seasons to a hearty 88 targets and 660 yards in 2018. Hooper has lacked big-play ability down the seam or downfield outside of designed plays to get Hooper lost in coverage. Hooper's 10.0 yards-per-reception over the past two seasons is alarmingly low for the position and his career 7% touchdown rate is below the positional average as well. Hooper lacks usage upside with a developing second-year Calvin Ridley and Devonta Freeman returning from injury, added to Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. (May 22)
