Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Hooper has quietly turned into a rock solid tight end. He'll again be a top-10 threat in this offense.Walker is 35 but the Titans use the TE and he's healthy. There's a chance he delivers one more top-15 campaign.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Hooper had 71 catches for 660 yards and four touchdowns last season, extremely solid numbers for a tight end. He's managed to become more involved in the offense successively in each of his three seasons, and that trend should hopefully continue this year. If he avoids injury again, he should be an easy TE1, albeit one no one will be excited to draft.Walker is 35 years old and is coming off a season during which he played just one game. Prior to that, he had been one of the most reliable tight ends in the game. Given his age and the fact that the Titans added Adam Humphries and drafted A.J. Brown, there's more downside with Walker than upside. He's only a borderline TE1, at best.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Nice increase year 1 to year 2 going from 49/526/3 to 71/660/4 but was another guy who was very inconsistent on a week to week basis. I expect more of the same with all the mouths to feed and don't see a huge jump in production coming.I am not touching Walker this season, and if that ends up making me look stupid, I am perfectly okay with that. He is 34 coming off of a bad injury.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
It may not have been as consistent as we would all have liked, but Hooper ended up as the #7 fantasy tight end in 2018 thanks to a few huge performances. If you can't land any of the top six tight ends in your draft, Hooper's ADP makes him a top late-round target.Walker may be 34 years old, but prior to his injury, he was showing no sign of slowing down with four consecutive 60 catch, 800 yard seasons. Plus, ankle injuries are much easier to come back from so while he dosn't have a load of upside, don't be shocked if he returns to top 10 tight end value.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It may have been the quietest top-six tight end finish of all time for Hooper last year, but that's where he was at. Now, his totals were inflated due to more passing than the Falcons wanted to do last year, as their defense was in shambles, forcing them to air it out against opponents. Hooper saw what was a career-high 88 targets because of that. With Calvin Ridley entering his second year, he figures to be more involved as well. Despite his top-six finish, Hooper posted top-12 type numbers just 37.5 percent of the time, which was tied with Jimmy Graham, and Trey Burton for 13th among tight ends, so there were some big performances to help him get there, and not so much consistencyAfter missing all of the 2018 season, Walker returns to what looks like a full house of pass-catchers. He'll now compete with Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, and Adam Humphries for targets from Marcus Mariota, who really struggled in Walker's absence. While we look for reasons to fade Walker, he just might be the one Mariota looks back to in order to regain some confidence. He's not going to finish as a top-five tight end anymore, but top-12 is well within reach
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Hooper has finished as the TE 37/17/6 in his first three seasons as a pro. He's extremely athletic, posting an above average height adjusted speed score, an above average agility score, and an above average catch radius. Hooper doesn't turn 25 until November, and is the clear cut starter on an elite offense. Hooper was efficient in the red zone last season, catching 9 of 13 red zone targets. His 4 TD's all came from inside the red zone, but he should see some positive TD luck in the Falcons high powered offense. Hooper is a virtual lock to finish the season as a TE 1, and yet he's still available in the final rounds of drafts.Walker will return from his nasty ankle injury he suffered in the season opener last year. His return, along with the additions of Free Agent Adam Humphries and rookie A.J. Brown will make this a sneaky offense heading into 2019. There are definitely concerns over his opportunity share. This is still a low volume offense, so there are only so many targets to go around. I'm comfortable drafting Walker in the back half of drafts in hopes he gets lucky in the TD department. He's not a must own, or a must fade. Just a guy you can plug into your lineups if the value is there and you missed out on the early and mid round TE's.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hooper had a nice season with 71 receptions for 660 yards and 4 touchdowns. He figures to be on the borderline of TE1 production this year.
