Falcons | Austin Hooper improved as blocker

Sun, 19 Aug 2018 20:29:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper was praised by head coach Dan Quinn for his improvements as a run blocker.

Fantasy Tip: Improving as a blocker should help Hooper play more snaps, which will only boost his fantasy appeal. He has been tabbed as a breakout candidate throughout the offseason, and low-end TE1 production isn't out of the question.

Falcons | Austin Hooper finds the end zone

Fri, 17 Aug 2018 19:06:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught both of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Both of Hooper's catches came while Matt Ryan was in the game. The hype has been building around him throughout the offseason, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sneak into TE1 range this season.

Falcons | Austin Hooper praised by QB

Sat, 04 Aug 2018 11:31:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper is entering his third year and QB Matt Ryan feels he is primed for a big season. "Well, he's gotten a lot better," Ryan said Saturday, Aug. 4. "A lot more polished." The quarterback added that he thinks Hooper has figured out the timing of the offense and is a little bit more patient with his routes and understanding where he needs to be.

Fantasy Tip: The duo have spent time together the past two offseasons, working privately. Hooper has the chance to take a big step forward in what should be a powerful Atlanta offense again in 2018. The coaching staff has reportedly been equally excited about his potential, especially as Hooper works to improve in the red zone. For now, he is a TE2 in most fantasy leagues, but don't be surprised if he takes a step forward and ends up a TE1 by season's end.

Falcons | Austin Hooper looking to deliver

Tue, 17 Jul 2018 08:09:10 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper said he is working to improve in the red zone. He stayed in Atlanta during the offseason to work with QB Matt Ryan. Head coach Dan Quinn said he's pumped about Hooper's potential in his third season.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper has caught 10 of 14 targets with four touchdowns in the red zone in his career, but he has to be more consistent to be more than a TE2 in fantasy.

Falcons | Austin Hooper needs consistency

Sun, 15 Jul 2018 19:11:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper's position coach, Wade Harman, has "harped" on him about being more consistent this season, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper enjoyed a sizeable jump in production between his rookie and sophomore campaigns, finishing with 526 yards in 2017. Low-end TE1 production isn't out of the question, but Hooper should be drafted as a solid TE2.

Falcons | Big year for Austin Hooper?

Sun, 24 Jun 2018 20:06:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper "should continue to ascend" in his second season in offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian's system, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper saw a significant jump in his second season, finishing with 49 catches for 526 yards after managing 19 catches for 271 yards as a rookie. Even a small boost in his numbers this year will make him a low-end TE1 candidate.

Falcons | Austin Hooper has been working with QB

Thu, 10 May 2018 12:26:45 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper has been working with QB Matt Ryan this offseason in hopes of building better chemistry with Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper had a decent 2017 season but will look to improve on the three touchdowns he posted last season. He probably will not be a main target for Ryan this upcoming season, which makes Hooper a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Austin Hooper poised to break out?

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 19:24:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper will make a "big jump" in 2018, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper had 526 yards and three touchdowns last year, but he didn't show any signs that he is capable of much more. Consider him a TE2 for now.

Falcons | Austin Hooper getting started early

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 19:51:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper is already starting to get in some work in the offseason, meeting QB Matt Ryan at the team facility as early as Friday, March 2, to go through an "hour-plus throwing session." The two have had "multiple sessions" since then to work on timing and Hooper said he'll be in Atlanta "all offseason" to work with Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper didn't necessarily have a bad sophomore showing in 2017, nabbing 49 balls for 526 yards and three touchdowns, but he didn't exactly make the second-year leap that many expected. He was also pretty lackluster down the stretch, recording no scores after mid-November, while also failing to top 40 yards in a game over that span as well. He'll have sleeper potential because of Atlanta's ability to move the ball, but for now, he's more of a TE2 entering next season.

Falcons | Austin Hooper held to one catch

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:18:43 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught one pass for three yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper finished third on the team with 526 yards and recorded three touchdowns during the regular season. He could have a decent role in the passing game in 2018 and has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy tight end next season.
