  • Austin Hooper A Bad Start for Week 15

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper has something uniquely in common with fellow wide receiver Julio Jones: they've both caught three receiving touchdowns this year. Hooper has caught two of those touchdowns within the red zone and has a total of seven catches in the red zone this season. While Hooper's greatest detraction is the amount of talent he's surrounded by, he's still getting open when it counts. This week, Hooper and the Falcons travel to Florida as they play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday night. Hooper didn't find his way into the end zone when the Falcons played the Buccaneers in Week 12, and the chances aren't good for him to do so this week. The Buccaneers defense has only allowed three touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, the second fewest in the league. Hooper isn't exceptionally gifted, and the Falcons have enough weapons to avoid having to force a pass to him. Hooper isn't worth the risk this week, especially with the fantasy championships on the line.

  • Austin Hooper Not a Good Start This Week

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper hasn't had a significant fantasy day since his performance in Week 10, and this week versus the New Orleans Saints doesn't bode well for the young tight end. The Saints have allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends, due in no small part to their fast ball-hawking linebacking corps. Hooper hasn't had a lot of opportunity for fantasy production, but his soft hands and size make him a legitimate threat to score every week. However, this week Hooper is a risky start. There are better options at the position, and his potential for failure far outweighs his potential for success.

  • Austin Hooper Is Not a Good Start for Week 12

    Week 11 was rough for fantasy owners who started Atlanta Falcons' tight end Austin Hooper, as he managed to log two catches for negative yardage, while fellow Falcons' tight end Levine Toilolo was targeted for and caught a long touchdown for the Falcons. Hooper has been streaky this season, though streaky is the nature of the tight end position in the world of fantasy football. It should be noted that Hooper is a capable player, who has and played and will play better games than his performance against the Seahawks. However, next week will be a difficult week for Hooper as the Falcons travel to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers' defense have only allowed three touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season which is why the Buccaneers' defense currently ranks fourth in the league in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends with a stingy 9.8 fantasy points per game. This isn't a good matchup for Hooper, and there are better options to start this week.
