Austin Hooper Note

We thought Hooper would be much more involved in the gameplan with David Njoku going to IR, but four targets is not something to get excited about. The Browns decided to involve rookie Harrison Bryant and give him two targets, so this is bound to be a timeshare no matter what. Unless we see a game where the Browns are expected to throw the ball 35-plus times, it's going to be tough to trust Hooper as anything more than a touchdown dependent TE2. In this game against Washington, it's tough to see that being the case with the Browns favored by almost a full touchdown. The one positive for Hooper, however, is that of the production Washington has allowed to skill-position players, 28.5 percent of it has gone to tight ends, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league. He's far from a guarantee with the limited targets, but Hooper may be better than expected this week as a high-end TE2.
