Austin Hooper Hasn't Received Offer

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper, who can become a free agent in March, wants to return to the team, but he has yet to receive a contract offer. Hooper is a Pro Bowl alternate this year after catching a career-high 75 passes for 787 yards and six touchdowns in a breakout season. His 2019 season could've been even more fruitful if not for injuries, but the 25-year-old still managed to improve on his 71-660-4 line from a season ago. It remains to be seen if Atlanta can afford to keep the rising star around, but it's likely that his fantasy value will be at its highest if he remains in Atlanta. If he returns, Hooper will be a high-end TE1.

Austin Hooper Catches Seven Passes In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper was targeted nine times by quarterbackMatt Ryan in Week 17, hauling in seven catches for 45 scoreless yards. Hooper missed three games due to injury in 2019 and he still finished as a top-10 tight end. Hooper broke out in a contract year, and if the Falcons bring him back for 2020, he will be a coveted tight end in upcoming fantasy drafts.

Russell Gage Targeted 13 Times In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 68 scoreless yards in Week 17. Gage was covered for most of the day by Sean Murphy-Bunting, who has been emerging as a solid cornerback for the Buccaneers, but Gage still managed to have a decent day. Moving forward to 2020, Gage will likely go undrafted in most 12-team leagues and will only see consistent, significant usage in the Falcons passing game if there's an injury to either Calvin Ridley or Julio Jones. Gage stepped up and performed well after Mohamed Sanu was traded to the Patriots and Ridley went down for the season.

Devonta Freeman Has A Quiet Week 17

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman carried the ball 18 times in Week 17 for 58 yards and added two catches for 15 yards. The Buccaneers Defense has been solid against the run all season and this week was no different, as they held Freeman to just 3.22 yards per carry. Freeman barely topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year and was rather ineffective throughout the season due to various factors such as poor game script and injuries. It's too early to evaluate where Freeman might get drafted in 2020 fantasy drafts because the Falcons may add a younger running back in the draft.

Matt Ryan Goes Over 300 Yards In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was 30 of 51 passing for 313 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons 28-22 victory over the Buccaneers, going over 300 yards for the 11th time this season. Ryan's play improved towards the middle of the season after the Falcons improved on defense by making a change at defensive coordinator, which took some pressure off the quarterback. Ryan finished the year as a top-12 quarterback and will likely be drafted as a QB1 in 2020.
