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.

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.

Falcons | Austin Hooper catches three passes

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:09:52 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught three passes for 21 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper has had a decent role in the passing game this season but has recorded at least 50 yards on only two games this season. He should only be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Austin Hooper re-visits end zone

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:52:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper racked up six receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown on his six targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper has been targeted at least six times in five of his past six outings and he has 47 or more yards and three or more catches in four of his past six. As a bonus for fantasy owners, he has two scores over the past three games. He'll look to carry the momentum over into Week 11 in Seattle on Monday.

Falcons | Three grabs for Austin Hooper

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:16:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper managed three receptions for 36 yards on six targets in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper has three or more grabs and at least 36 yards in four of his past five outings. However, he remains more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Cowboys. He's not a bad streaming option or bye-week replacement, but that's about it.

Falcons | Austin Hooper finds end zone

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:40:48 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught four passes for 47 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper played well after a disappointing Week 7 performance but has been inconsistent this season. Hooper should be owned in all fantasy leagues but probably can be benched next week against the Carolina Panthers.

Falcons | Five grabs for Austin Hooper

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 16:32:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted five receptions for 50 yards on seven targets in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper equaled the amount of receptions he had through the first three games, and his yardage total was his most since Week 1. He still has to show a little more consistency before he can be considered in fantasy leagues on a regular basis, although he could continue to see more work going forward if Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are forced to miss time beyond the Week 5 bye.

Falcons | Austin Hooper quiet in SNF victory

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:55:22 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted two receptions for seven yards in Week 2 against the Packers on just two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper had a huge stat line in the opening game win in Chicago, but we told you to tamp down expectations. His targets remained just about the same, but he had the one big play last week. Until he sees an uptick in targets he should be treated more as a TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 3 in Detroit.
