Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Fant was TE16 as a rookie, and Denver's offense is about to explode. His athleticism could be a big part of it, and slides him inside my top-15.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Although he became the NFL's highest-paid tight end the moment he signed a four-year contract for 44 million, which included 23 million guaranteed, Hooper is hardly an elite performer in either real or fantasy football. The Browns will likely find ways to get him involved in the passing game after making such a hefty investment, which gives Hooper a high fantasy floor.Kyle Rudolph caught 83 passes on 132 targets in 2016 with Pat Shurmur as Minnesota's tight ends coach for the first seven games and then offensive coordinator for the final nine. Evan Engram caught 89 passes on 132 targets in 19 games over Shurmur's two years as the Giants' head coach. Expect Fant to take on a big role with Shurmur in as Denver's new offensive coordinator.
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
 It's difficult to assess a true breakout for Fant in 2020. He didn't establish an immediate rapport with Drew Lock, and now there's more mouths to feed in the Denver offense. He's a bench stash in 2020 for me. I feel more comfortable with him as a TE2 to see if he can realize some of the upside for 2020 versus being my starting tight end.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Yes, the Browns just paid Hooper a lot of money. Yes, the Browns also picked up the fifth-year option on Njoku's contract, and then drafted a tight end in the fourth round. What a mess. This is a lot like the Vikings duo of Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith last year. Don't forget that the Vikings paid Rudolph a lot of money (4 years, $36 million) just one year ago, after they had already drafted Smith. Do you know how that situation played out? Rudolph got 48 targets while Smith got 47 of them. The Vikings tight ends combined for 105 targets last year when you add in Tyler Conklin. Even if you want to weight them more towards Hooper, what are you looking at? A 55/40/10 between these three tight ends? The magic number for a tight end to be considered a TE1 is right around 80 projected targets. We cannot get there with Hooper. Njoku and his agent know that this is a bad situation and want out, but the Browns have said they're holding onto him because Stefanski loves to use two tight ends. The best-case scenario with Hooper is that he gets close to the 70-target mark and scores at least six touchdowns, though I don't see it happening. I'm staying away from this tight end unit unless some injuries arise. If Hooper or Njoku were to get hurt, the other would turn into an attractive option.It was a successful rookie year for Fant. So many fantasy players have seemingly forgotten it typically takes a few years for tight ends to become someone you can rely on. He saw 66 targets his rookie year and ranked 15th in expected fantasy points among tight ends. The discerning part is that he didn't tally more than four targets in any game with Drew Lock. In fact, he averaged just 2.8 targets per game with him, while averaging 4.7 targets per game with the other quarterbacks. We've now watched the Broncos add three talented pass-catching options in Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Melvin Gordon this offseason, which won't help his target share go up. On top of that, they selected Okwuegbunam in the fourth round, who happens to be Lock's old college tight end who he loved targeting in the red zone. Fant is still the top tight end on this team, but I cannot say he's a lock to see 70-plus targets in 2020. That puts him outside the starting tight end territory, and knowing his ceiling might be around 80-85 targets, I would probably look elsewhere in the TE10-15 range for someone with true breakout potential.
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
Likely to be asked to stay in and block more, Hopper isn't just going to disappear from the fantasy radar. New opportunity in CLeveland but I am not expecting his Atlanta resultsIf Denver's new look offense is truly a "pick your poison" type affair, Fant would likely share targets among Jeudy, Sutton, Gordon but the key is Drew Lock for now. I love Fant more in dynasty then I do in Redraft
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
After a career-year in 2019, Hooper is now a member of the Browns in what's looking like a very crowded offense. Between OBJ, Jarvis Landry and Kareem hunt catching passes out of the backfield, it's hard to imagine Hooper seeing the same target share he got in Atlanta. And I still haven't mentioned David Njoku. Overall, Hooper should finish as a top-10 TE but no longer has the upside to finish top-5.Like most rookie TE's, Fant wasn't very productive as a rookie but when given the opportunity, he showed legitimate breakout talent. Now, as he enters year two in the NFL, expect him to be more involved in the offense, especially in the red-zone.

Austin Hooper was a surprise fantasy stud in 2019 and he now makes the move to Cleveland. While he'll no doubt play a big role in the new Stefanski game plan, given how run-heavy the Browns will be in 2020, it's fair to assume he'll add a lot of value with his blocking and that's not what fantasy players want to see. While Baker Mayfield did use David Njoku quite heavily in 2018, he now has two sensational receivers and that will make it hard for Hooper to gain the target volume to be start-worthy on a weekly basis. He profiles as a match-up specific streamer who starts things off against the Ravens. You really can't make him your only tight end and that means he shouldn't be going until double digit rounds and that's very much not the case. He's a pass for me.How is Noah Fant's ADP as high as TE8 on some sites?! Stop it right now! Do not consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round, wait until the double digit rounds and then you can consider him for his round 1 streaming appeal. Fant is a very talented player but Drew Lock doesn't want to give him the ball. Now the Broncos have added Jeudy, Hamler, Gordon and Albert O but Fant's going above Higbee? This has got to stop. He's a streaming TE, dynasty stash, and team name inspiration, that's where the hype train should end.

Hooper was having a borderline dominant fantasy season halfway through the year before an injury brought his production down significantly. Cleveland was hardly the expected or desired destination for Hooper from a fantasy point of view, considering he'll need to compete with a ton of mouths for targets. But, at least Hooper will be on the field non-stop, as Kevin Stefanski runs plenty of two-tight end sets, and Baker Mayfield has thrown 35% of his career touchdown passes to tight ends. Hooper can be considered a startable option in most leagues, but a low-end one.

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.Fant was a great streaming option in a few matchups last season, but he certainly has more competition for targets now in Denver this season. Fant has the talent to be a true fantasy star, but he may just not see enough target volume to be a consistent option week in and week out. He should finish towards the TE1 range, but it might just be on the back of a few games here or there.

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.

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.Fant had 550 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, despite playing with 3 starting quarterbacks. He could be a TE1 sleeper in 2020, if QB Drew Lock can stay healthy.

Huge faller here. Browns already have a ton of weapons, he'll be exposed for mediocre outside of Dirk Koetter's TE dreamboat schemeFlashed elite athleticism and a solid rapport w/ Drew Lock. Inconsistent hands need to be improved upon
