Summary

Jacob Tamme has left the squad, leaving Austin Hooper to ascend into the starting tight end role during 2017. Hooper was productive as a rookie during 2016, garnering 27 targets for 19/271/3 receiving. He did catch a TD in the Super Bowl (six targets for 3/32/1) and looks ready to assume the pass-catching tight end duties for the Falcons full time during 2017. Tamme only appeared in eight games last year, so Hooper has already played several games as the starting tight end - he looks ready to take a step up in his fantasy production during 2017. (June 7)
