Austin Hooper catches two balls

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in a 35-30 win over the Bengals in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper has just four catches for 36 scoreless yards through two weeks. It has been slow going for the veteran tight end. He will be a low-end TE2 for Week 3's matchup against Washington.

Austin Hooper catches just two passes

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 2-of-2 passes for 15 yards in a 38-6 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper was quiet in his Cleveland debut, taking a backseat to fellow tight end David Njoku. The veteran tight end should bounce back in Week 2 against the Bengals. Treat him as a high-end TE2 for that contest.

Austin Hooper spent 2-3 weeks living with Baker Mayfield this offseason

New Browns TE Austin Hooper says he spent 2-3 weeks living with Baker Mayfield this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

The two worked out together after Hooper signed a four-year, $44 million contract with Cleveland during free agency. Hooper is likely going to see less volume than he did in Atlanta last year, but perhaps he'll remain an efficient target for an offense in need of a rebound.

Austin Hooper signing with Browns, becomes league's highest paid tight end

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports free agent Austin Hooper is headed to the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper, the top free agent at his position, is reportedly set to become the highest paid tight end in football. Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports the deal is for four years and $44 million. This move is obviously a win for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland offense as a whole. However, it definitely hurts David Njoku's value.

Austin Hooper being pursued by Green Bay, Washington, and Cleveland

Free agent TE Austin Hooper is drawing interest from the Packers, Redskins, and Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper caught a career-high 75 balls for 787 yards and six TDs in just 13 games in 2018. After four years in Atlanta, the former third round pick out of Stanford will look to become one of the highest-paid TEs in NFL history. He’s a lock to be a top-5 TE in 2020.
