TE - CLE
This Week Outlook
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 4-of-5 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in a 24-22 win over Pittsburgh in Week 17.
Hooper hauled in a two-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. He wraps up his first season in Cleveland with 46 catches for 435 yards. He will get a rematch against the Steelers next weekend in the Wild Card round.
Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 7-of-15 targets for 71 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Jets in Week 16.
With the Browns placing their top four WRs on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, Hooper wound up as the team's leading receiver. He set season-highs in catches, targets, and yardage along the way. Hooper will be a low-end TE1 in Week 17 against Pittsburgh.
Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught 5-of-6 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 20-6 win over the Giants in Week 15.
Hooper missed last week's game with a neck injury but was able to suit up against the Giants in Week 15. His touchdown came on a two-yard pass from Baker Mayfield. Hooper will be a mid-range TE2 in a plus matchup against the Jets in Week 16.
