  • Austin Hooper Catches His Third Touchdown of the Season

    Atlanta Falcons' tight end Austin Hooper caught his third touchdown on the season Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys. Hooper caught all six of his targets for 49 receiving yards as well. Hooper has begun to play a larger role in the Falcons' offense, particularly in the red zone, as he continues to create poor matchups that quarterback Matt Ryan has clearly been happy to exploit. Hooper's size advantage and solid hands have helped him carve out a niche among the Falcons' other talented receivers and as long as he remains healthy, there's no reason he shouldn't continue to thrive. Next week, Hooper and the Falcons will travel to play the Monday night game in Seattle versus the Seahawks.

  • Austin Hooper Catches His Second Touchdown of the Season

    In a wet game where even the most sure-handed receivers had a hard time holding on to the ball, Atlanta Falcons' tight end Austin Hooper converted his six targets in the passing game into 4 catches for 47 receiving yards and a touchdown. Hooper had another touchdown slip through his fingers, but it bodes well for the second-year tight end that he was able to get an open look in the end zone. Hooper and Ryan have built a rapport, as Ryan turned to him repeatedly in a game where a bobbled pass or fumble could easily lead to a turnover. Hooper's sure hands were on display Sunday versus the New York Jets and his fantasy owners got to reap the rewards. Next week, Hooper and the Falcons are headed to Carolina to face off against the Panthers, who have allowed an average of 10 points per game to opposing tight ends.

  • Austin Hooper Has Two Catches for Seven Yards

    After a meteoric first week, Austin Hooper's performance was more down to Earth this Sunday versus the Green Bay Packers. Hooper converted both of his targets into two catches for seven yards, a fantasy stat line that reads poorly no matter how you look at it. The bright side is two-fold for Hooper's fantasy owners. First, Hooper was targeted, and might have gotten more work in a more contentious game. Second, Hooper converted both of his targets, a good sign of his sure-handedness. Hooper will get more opportunities for fantasy production next week as he and the Atlanta Falcons travel to Detroit to in their Sunday game versus against the Lions.
