Austin Hooper News
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (ankle) will not take part in minicamp. However, his injury is not considered serious and he's expected to be ready for training camp this summer. The 24-year-old had a career year in 2018, catching 71 passes for 660 yards and four touchdowns in his second full season in his three years in the NFL. In an Atlanta offense that remains extremely potent, Hooper must not be forgotten as a low-end TE1 with upside left heading into his fourth NFL season.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper had a solid, if unspectacular, day against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17. Hooper caught five of his six targets for 67 yards but failed to cap that performance with a touchdown. This was actually one of the more middling performances from Hooper this year, who has been a little boom-or-bust based on his ability to find the end zone. Hooper has shown great growth this year, both as a tight and with Matt Ryan. Hopefully that can translate to a bigger and more consistent 2019 season.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper had a tough game for the second week in a row against the Carolina Panthers in Week 16. After being held for zero catches in Week 15, Hooper had just two targets in this game. Fortunately, he managed to pull both of them in for 36 yards to reward fantasy owners who stuck with him. However, this has been a mixed season for his fantasy owners and this was ultimately another down day. The Buccaneers have had trouble against the tight end this season, but with how much better their defense has been the second half of the season, I would have a tough time trusting Hooper again this week.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper had a dreadful day against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15. Hooper was targeted just once in the game and failed to pull it in, registering a big zero on the day. It was always going to be a tough matchup for Hooper, and he will have left fantasy owners extremely frustrated. The worst part is that his Week 16 matchup is against the Carolina Panthers, who rank third worst in fantasy points surrendered to the tight end. Hooper should be able to have success in Week 16 and could be an interesting DFS option.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) will play in Week 15 against the Cardinals, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Hooper missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned on Friday, putting him on track to play. Hooper has a decent floor as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 and has four touchdowns on the season. However, he hasn't had more than five catches or 44 yards in any of his last four games, while scoring once in that span.
