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 TE Austin Hooper (undisclosed) did not practice Thursday, June 6.
Fantasy Spin: At this point, there is nothing to indicate that Hooper is dealing with any type of serious injury. He doesn't have the athleticism to produce elite fantasy numbers, but he is a steady target for Matt Ryan. Hooper can be a dependable, albeit low-end, TE1.
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper said he likes the passing attack for 2019 and is excited to work with tight ends coach Mike Mularkey.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper is never going to be an elite fantasy tight end, but he does have a steady role at a position that lacks much depth. He is a safe, lower-end TE1.
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper's 71 receptions in 2018 were the fourth most among tight ends, and he also ranked seventh in receiving yards (660) and tied for ninth in touchdowns (4) at the position.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper doesn't have the athleticism to make big plays like the elite fantasy tight ends, but he was still a dependable option at a thin position. He's a safe, low-end TE1 heading into 2019.
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 TE Austin Hooper caught five of six targets for 67 yards in a 34-32 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper went over 600 receiving yards for the year and finished with 71 catches. He won't be confused as an elite fantasy tight end any time soon, but with a lack of dependable options at the position, Hooper should be viewed as a low-end TE1 heading into 2019.
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 TE Austin Hooper finished with two grabs for 36 yards on his two targets in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper has been banged up down the stretch which has limited his fantasy appeal. He could be a TE1 fantasy option in 2019, but avoid him in Week 17 in Tampa since he isn't 100 percent.
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 16, and the Panthers have allowed an NFL-high nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends this seasons.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper had five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers back in Week 2, and the likelihood of a return trip to the end zone makes him a TE1 option this weekend.
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 21, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Hooper was not targeted in the last game but was targeted at least five times in each of the previous five games. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.
