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.

Falcons | Austin Hooper surprises in opener

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:36:07 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper made the most of his two targets in Week 1 at Chicago, posting two receptions for 128 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: The highlight of the afternoon for the Atlanta offense was a connection between Matt Ryan and Hooper for 88 yards on a busted coverage. While the stat line is sure to jump out, keep in mind he had just the two targets. Temper expectations heading into Week 2 against the Packers.

Falcons | Austin Hooper worked out with Matt Ryan

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 09:04:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper recently joined QB Matt Ryan for three days of workouts in southern California in an effort to enhance the on-field chemistry between the two. "That's what L.A. was about ... another opportunity for me to work with the MVP and just understand exactly where he wants me to be and work routes that we both feel we can progress on," Hooper said.

Fantasy Tip: With all the weapons Ryan has at his disposal, it is going to be difficult for Hooper to enjoy a true breakout in 2017, but it shouldn't be all that hard for him to improve on his rookie season (19 catches, 271 yards and three touchdowns). At the very least, Hooper should be able to enter fantasy TE2 territory this season as he should absorb most of the playing time and production left behind by Jacob Tamme.

Falcons | Austin Hooper makes history

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 16:47:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper became the first rookie tight end to catch a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, and he is the first rookie to have a receiving touchdown since retired WR Torry Holt in Super Bowl XXXIV.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper isn't a consistent part of Atlanta's passing attack yet, but he is one of the more promising young players at the position. For now, his fantasy value is limited to keeper formats.

Falcons | Austin Hooper on track to play

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 14:27:46 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper will return to the lineup after a few weeks off and likely will be in the starting lineup. Hooper may see a few targets in the passing game but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
