Summary

Austin Hooper took a step forward in his second season, more than doubling his reception and yardage totals from 2016. Hooper has not been a field-stretcher to-date outside of schemed design to get Hooper wide open on corner and crossing routes. Hooper graded as one of the least successful tight ends in the NFL with at least 50 targets in 2017. On the positive side, Hooper was an efficient red zone option with a 67% success rate, fourth in the NFL among tight ends. (June 3)

Falcons | Austin Hooper improved as blocker (Sun Aug 19, 11:29 PM) - Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper was praised by head coach Dan Quinn for his improvements as a run blocker.

Our View: Even though he took a step forward in 2017 (787 snaps, 49 catches, 526 yards, three touchdowns), Hooper could be used even more this year. It will be interesting to see how Steve Sarkisian's offense looks in year two. We'll also be monitoring how rookie WR Calvin Ridley changes the target distribution for QB Matt Ryan. Hooper is a TE2 for Fantasy GMs, currently going off the board at TE17 (13.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Falcons | Austin Hooper finds the end zone (Fri Aug 17, 10:06 PM) - Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught both of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.

Our View: Hooper saw plenty of targets last year (65) and should continue to see that level of workload in 2018. Fantasy GMs are not currently drafting Hooper, but his role in this offense (which should be better in the second year under OC Steve Sarkisian) means that Hooper should at least be on your waiver wire speed dial.
