Sleepers and Busts
Austin Hooper was signed for big money by the Browns, but they have a run oriented offense which made no sense. After he left the Falcons, his stats sunk like the Orca in the movie Jaws. It's hard to see things getting any better in 2021. Hoopah! Slow ahead if you please! No thanks.Cook is 34 so he['s no spring chicken, but maybe a change of scenery will help. The Saints spread the ball around a lot. He goes to an up and coming QB in Justin Herbert and the Chargers will be in some shootouts with the Chiefs and Raiders. He'll take over for TE Hunter Henry who left in free agency. Henry had 60 rec 613 yards 4 TDs in 14 games. If Cook gets anywhere close to that, he'll be a value on draft day given his cheap price.

FantasyPros
Hooper was hyped up as someone that could potentially be a top-5 TE last season, but he fell well short of expectations and only finished as the TE21. While missing three games was certainly a large reason for that, Hooper simply wasn't involved in this Cleveland offense enough to warrant weekly consideration. For 2021, it's probably best to view Hooper as a low-end streaming option versus a locked-in weekly starter. My Very Early Projection: 51-521-5 receiving.Cook has exceeded my expectations each of the past two seasons and he's still producing at 34 years old! He now steps into an offense that has a huge hole at the TE position following Hunter Henry's departure and a QB that is only going to grow from here on out. Cook's age is going to play a huge factor in his ADP, but if you want to wait on TE and grab Cook with one of your last picks, he's got an excellent chance of returning that value in this situation. My Very Early Projection: 43-596-5 receiving.

 2nd most TDs among. TEs over the past 2 years, has a shot to stay hot in the RZ on what could be a scorching Chargers O. Carryover from new OC Joe Lombardi who was w/ Saints, who loved using TEs creatively.
