Austin Hooper totals 67 yards in Week 17

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 5-of-6 targets for 67 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper will end the 2018 season with career highs in receptions, (71), yards (660) and touchdowns (four). He will look to build on his totals in 2019 and attempt to emerge as one of the league's top pass-catching tight ends.

Austin Hooper held in check in Week 16

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 2-of-2 targets for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

After going catch-less last week, Hooper didn't fare any better in Week 16's win. His past two outings were his worst since a one-catch outing in Week 4. He will look to end the year on a plus note in Week 17 at Tampa Bay.

Austin Hooper with a Week 15 goose egg

Falcons TE Austin Hooper failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper blanked for the first time all season and at the very worst time for fantasy. He'll look to bounce back in a plus Week 15 matchup with Carolina next week. Hooper put up a 5/59/1 line on Carolina back in Week 2.

Austin Hooper removed from injury report

Austin Hooper was removed from the team's injury report Friday after returning as a limited participant at practice. Hooper is dealing with a knee and ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but there's no question about his status now that he's been removed from the team's injury report. While he's been inconsistent this season, he's a fringe TE1 at best against the Cardinals this weekend.

Austin Hooper misses practice again

Austin Hooper missed practice again on Thursday due to knee and ankle injuries.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper also missed practice on Wednesday. The Falcons have shown that they are willing to start players on little to no practice, but this certainly isn't encouraging for Hooper. He's been an inconsistent fantasy starter this season, and he's not an especially solid play this weekend even if he is active against the Cardinals.
