Expert 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Anyone who bought a ticket to Hooper's preseason hype train must have felt validated when he broke 2018 with an 88-yard TD catch. That triumph didn't last long. After the fast start, he never exceeded 50 yards in a single game. The Falcons added Calvin Ridley without losing any key targets, so Hooper is likely to remain a boring TE2.  
Staff Rankings
QB List
Hooper had 49 receptions for 526 yards and three touchdowns last season. He doesn't seem likely to acquire any more targets next season, especially now that they've added Calvin Ridley. Hooper has a higher floor than most of the high-risk tight ends outside of the top 20, so if you are looking for stability at the end of the draft he might be your guy. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
We know Hooper has plenty of upside, but with the addition of Calvin Ridley, it seems unlikely that his target share will improve much more, if at all. Unless they start throwing Hooper the ball much more often than we saw last season, he has essentially zero fantasy value. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Hooper got his chance to shine last year and failed miserably. From Week 4 to Week 10, he saw at least six targets in all but one game, yet he failed to crack 50 yards in any game. Once the Falcons realized that he wasn't doing much with his targets, they dialed them back and he failed to see more than five the remainder of the season, including just two targets in a few games. Them acquiring Calvin Ridley in the draft definitely didn't give him any clearer path to targets, either. Hooper will be touchdown-or-bust, meaning he's just a streaming option.
