Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 While Hooper is one of the more talented TEs in the NFL, he's in an offense that isn't exactly going to maximize his skills from a fantasy perspective. He's going to be asked to stay in and block quite a bit and this offense should be one of the more run-heavy units in the league. Hooper's a fine dart throw in the later rounds, but it's unlikely that he finishes anywhere close to the top-5 when it's all said and done.
Seth Miller

Aside from 2 blowup games, he was rather useless for fantasy in a 49ers uniform. I don't doubt his will to be great, I doubt the passing volume of the offense and his ability to be anything but the third option behind Kittle and an emerging Deebo.Targets to the Vikings TEs under Stefanski in 2019 - 95. Irv and Rudolph split those evenly. Targets to the TEs with Baker in 2019 - 59 between 3 guys. This might be a mess. Do we believe Hooper funnels al of those, how many does "those" mean? 60? 70? We know what the Vikings game plan was under Stefanski, run, run, run. And we know the offseason moves point towards trying to do the same thing here. For me, this worry is at least enough to knock Hooper down a few spots from his ADP and take his replacement in ATL, at his price, instead.
Mike Tagliere

It was remarkable to see Sanders come back from an Achilles injury at the age of 32, though there were a lot of inconsistencies in his performances. He had three games with 100-plus yards, but also had 10 games with 41 yards or less. Going to the Saints, he's not going to need a whole lot of targets to produce, but betting on him being anything other than a bye week filler would be a mistake. The Saints offense runs through Michael Thomas, and you're not going to take targets from him to feed a 33-year-old.When it comes to tight ends, it's all about targets. Going back to 2009, there have been just 11 tight ends who've finished top-10 without seeing a minimum of 80 targets, which might be difficult for Hooper to come by with his new team. Not only do they have Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Nick Chubb, and Kareem Hunt, but Hooper is now part of a crowded tight end room with David Njoku and Harrison Bryant (who they drafted in the fourth round). Kevin Stefanski's offense in Minnesota did run a lot of 2TE sets, but their top three tight ends combined for just 105 targets, and none had more than 48 targets.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Sanders is getting up there in age, but there were few better landing spots for him than New Orleans. As with his new counterpart Michael Thomas, Sanders has an elite catch rate, and will now have perhaps the most accurate passer in the history of the NFL throwing him the ball. His upside is limited by inability to find the end zone, as he hasn't scored more than four touchdowns in a season since 2016. But he should see plenty of targets, enough to make him a borderline WR3 most weeks in half- of full-PPR leagues.

 Down slightly with the unknowns of a new team/coaching staff.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Prior to his injury, Hooper was the #1 fantasy tight end last year despite fighting for targets with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu. So yes, he does come into another great receiving core but he still has plenty of upside if Cleveland is committed to getting targets his way.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Hooper had a big season with 787 yards receiving and 6 receiving touchdowns and he would have been even better if he had not missed 3 games and 6 starts due to injury. Hooper should be TE1 again in 2019, but it remains to been seen if he can thrive with his new home being Cleveland.
