Hail to Fantasy Football
Up into my top-12 TEs. At this point in the draft, I'd rather draft a potential young breakout in Hooper rather than an older guy like Jimmy Graham or even Jordan Reed. 
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.

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 consistency.After 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.
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. While he makes for an excellent best ball tight end, you are better off leaving him on your waivers in a standard-sized re-draft league.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.
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.
