Austin Hooper catches five balls

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught five of five targets for 40 yards in a 31-21 win over the Texans in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper led the team with his five targets. It has been a modest start to the year for Hooper, who has eight grabs for 67 yards through two games. He will be a TE2 for Week 3's matchup against the Bears.

Austin Hooper catches three balls in Week 1

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught all three of his targets for 27 yards in a 33-29 loss to the Chiefs in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper caught all three of his passes on the opening drive and was not heard from again. To make matters worse, David Njoku went on to lead Cleveland in receiving. Hooper can't be trusted in fantasy lineups, even with a tasty Week 2 matchup against Houston up next.

Austin Hooper could have increased role in Browns offense

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski claimed that the team is attempting to grow TE Austin Hooper's role this season.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper was generally in the TE2 conversation all of last season, due to lack of volume in his first year with Cleveland, as he compiled 46 receptions for 435 yards and four touchdowns. However, it was merely two seasons ago when Hooper registered 75 grabs for 787 yards and six touchdowns on Atlanta, finishing as a top-7 TE in fantasy. He could be a strong sleeper to target in the final rounds of drafts with the Browns apparently looking to increase his usage in the passing game. On the other hand, it's difficult to ignore the presence of both sophomore Harrison Bryant and David Njoku, as they should remain involved.

Austin Hooper disappears in playoff loss

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in a 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper came up small in what appeared to be an excellent matchup for him on paper. The big-ticket free agent signing from last offseason wound up being a bust for the Browns. He will hope for a bounce-back in 2021 but that will be tough in a run-heavy Cleveland offense.

Austin Hooper catches TD in playoff win

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 7-of-11 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in a 48-37 win over the Steelers in the Wild Card round.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper could have had a bigger game but struggled to hold onto the football. He dropped at least two passes, one of which would have been a second touchdown. He will be worth considering for DFS lineups next week against the Chiefs in the Divisional Round.
