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.

Down slightly with the unknowns of a new team/coaching staff. 
Bobby Sylvester

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.While the Titans have a great defense overall, they struggled to contain pass catchers over the middle of the field and ended up as a bottom-five unit against the tight end position last year. Fant has some seasonal upside but is primarily just a Week 1 streamer. He carries an ADP of TE13 so he should be available in the closing rounds of your draft. You can snag him for this quality Week 1 matchup before dumping him before three tough matches in the following four weeks at Pittsburgh, at Jamal Adams and the Jets then at New England.
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.This comes down to there being simply too many mouths to fee in Denver. Do we think they're suddenly going to let Drew Lock throw the ball 600-plus times? Not with Vic Fangio as they coach, they aren't. When you have Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, Melvin Gordon, and Phillip Lindsay as your skill-position corps, it's going to be tough seeing consistent targets. He's going to flash and have big games, but won't be consistent enough for an every-week option.
Derek Lofland

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.
