Austin Hooper quiet in his Week 14 return

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 2-of-6 passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

In his first game back from a knee injury, Hooper did not pick up where he left off. in fact, he had one of his worst outings amidst his breakout campaign. Hooper will look to get back on track in Week 15 at the 49ers, who have now given up five touchdowns to tight ends since Week 10.

Austin Hooper (MCL) returns to practice

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper returned to the practice field on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Austin Hooper has missed the Falcons last three contests. There was some hope he would be able to return in Week 13, but it did not make sense to push him back with the short week. Holding him out gave him an extra 10 days to recover for Sunday's contest. Hooper will be an immediate TE1 upon his return. With the fantasy football semi finals upon us, this will be a situation to closely monitor throughout the week.

Austin Hooper (knee) still sidelined on Tuesday

Austin Hooper (knee) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper was at least working off to the side, so he's making progress in his recovery. Consider him unlikely so suit up on Thanksgiving night but he has a chance to return in Week 14.

Austin Hooper (knee) listed as DNP on team's estimated practice report

Atlanta Falcons star tight end Austin Hooper was listed as did not participate on the team's estimated practice report.

Fantasy Impact

There had been some optimism that Austin Hooper would be able to return for Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints, but his estimated tag suggests otherwise. Of course, this is just an estimated practice report, but Hooper will likely need to return to the practice field within the next two days to have a realistic chance of suiting up on Thursday night. Russell Gage will remain the primary beneficiary from his absence as the wideout racked up 10 targets in Week 12. Hooper will be a TE1 immediately upon his return.
