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
O.J. Howard is set up to have a monster season in 2019. With Jackson and Humphries gone there are a lot of targets up for grabs. This is a team likely to finish in the top 7 in both pass attempts and passing TD's, so taking one of the three clear top targets is smart. Even when I give him an extremely fair 17% target market share, Howard gets a projection of 68/1063/9. That sort of stat line has him right on par with the top tier of Kelce/Ertz/Kittle. Howard is one of the TE's I would target in the middle rounds.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.

Howard may have finished as the TE13 last season but let's not forget that he only played 10 games and actually had more fantasy points per game than TE5, Jared Cook. Not only that, but Howard with get a full season of Jameis Winston who loves TEs nearly as much as anyone in the game. Howard breaks big plays and is a red-zone threat so it is within the realm of possibility that he ends up TE1 by season's end.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
O.J. Howard's 11.8 yards per target in 2018 ranks as the second-highest mark of all-time among tight ends who saw at least 40 targets. His mark of 11.1 yards per target in 2017 would rank fifth all-time, but he just missed the cutoff with 39 targets. His career mark of 11.5 yards per target is the best of all-time (since they started tracking targets). In short, he's a rock-solid presence when healthy, but he needs to stay on the field.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Howard had only 34 receptions, but they went for 565 yards and 5 receiving touchdowns. If the Buccaneers ever figure out how to use him, they have one of the most physically gifted tight ends in the NFL that could be like the tight ends in the top-tier.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.
