Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Down slightly with the unknowns of a new team/coaching staff. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
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. It's at least enough to knock Hooper down a few spots from his ADP and take his replacement in ATL instead. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
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.
