Austin Hooper goes off again

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 8-of-8 targets for 117 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper is off to a phenomenal start to 2019. Not only did he record his second 100-yard outing of the season, but it was his fourth game with at least eight receptions. A poor man's Zach Ertz, Hooper will get an exploitable matchup with the Rams in Week 7.

Austin Hooper goes for 56 yards in Week 5 loss

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 6-of-9 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

While Hooper has not scored in two games, he is still racking up yards and receptions. In fact, Hooper has had at least six receptions, 56 yards, and seven targets in 4-of-5 games played in 2019. Hooper will get the Cardinals in Week 6, who are the worst team at defending the tight end in the NFL.

Austin Hooper goes off in Week 4 loss

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 9-of-11 targets for 130 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper has been a fantasy find in 2019. He's had at least six targets in all four games and is coming off back-to-back outings with 130 yards or two scores. Hooper will look to keep it going in Week 5 at the Texans.

Austin Hooper scores twice in Week 3 loss

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 6-of-7 targets for 66 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper has been targeted at least six times in each of the first three games of 2019. His two Week 3 touchdowns were his first scores of the year. Hooper will get the Titans in Week 4 and is in the back-end TE1 tier for the tough matchup.

Austin Hooper draws five targets in Week 2

Falcons TE Austin Hooper caught 4-of-5 targets for 34 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Hooper has drawn 14 targets in the first two games of 2019. Despite the slow start for Atlanta's offense and their surplus of weapons, Hooper is still a main component in the Falcons' passing attack. He's a poor man's Zach Ertz. Hooper gets the Colts in Week 3 and will be on the fringe TE1 radar.
