ESPN’s Turron Davenport reports that Tennessee Titans TE Austin Hooper “has already surfaced as one of Tannehill’s preferred options in the passing game.” (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

Hooper, who will be entering his 7th NFL season in 2022, finished as a mid-range TE1 in back-to-back seasons in 2018 and 2019 while with the Atlanta Falcons. However, he has struggled to stay fantasy relevant during his past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns. Hooper played in a TE committee while in Cleveland which is devastating for any TEs fantasy value, but he has an opportunity in Tennessee to be the team's primary TE with his competition for playing time being Geoff Swaim and rookie Chigoziem Okomkwo. All signs point towards Hooper seeing a heavy dose of targets in 2022 with A.J. Brown’s departure leaving a sizable load of vacated targets, rookie WR Treylon Burks being unable to practice with breathing issues, WR Robert Woods recovering from a torn ACL, and RB Derrick Henry’s lack of involvement in the passing game. All these factors make Hooper an appealing late-round TE sleeper.
