2024 RTSports Outlook

Hooker was recovering from a torn ACL last season and served as the third string for the Lions. He will look to move up the depth chart this year and be the top backup to Jared Goff. There are thoughts that Hooker could be the future starter for the Lions. Hooker gets rid of the ball quickly and normally makes the right reads. He has a solid arm and is not afraid to make plays with his legs. He is coming off a major injury, though, and played in an offense in college that was a little gimmicky. He will need to learn how to play in a more pro-style offense, so learning from Goff should be a positive thing for him. 

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hooker is a better player in dynasty formats. He is not likely to find the field unless injury hits. He is an intriguing player for the down the road, though, especially if you consider the talent he might work with in Detroit.

Player Notes
May 27 4:30pm ET

Detroit Lions quarterback Hendon Hooker was rumored to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in the middle of his stellar final season at Tennessee in 2022. However, he suffered a late-season ACL tear and was ultimately a third-round selection by Detroit. Teddy Bridgewater was Jared Goff's primary backup last season, while Hooker spent most of his debut campaign on the Injured Reserve list. With Bridgewater announcing his retirement this offseason, the 26-year-old is set to move into the QB2 role in 2024. So far at OTAs, the reviews have been promising. "It was fun watching Hendon Hooker sling it in a team setting for the very first time," Colton Pouncy of The Athletic wrote. "Really nice touch on his deep ball. Good velocity. One of his best plays of the day was a deep ball down the right sideline to Daurice Fountain, which drew "oooohs" and "aaahhs" from the team." After Goff signed a four-year extension to remain with the organization, Hooker's narrow path to the starting job closed. However, he can be stashed in deep Superflex or two-QB leagues. If Goff had to miss any time due to injury, the 26-year-old sophomore would have intriguing upside thanks to his rushing ability and pass-catching group headlined by Amon-Ra St. Brown and Sam LaPorta.
