Falcons TE Austin Hooper has spent "a lot of 1-on-1 time" with QB Matt Ryan this offseason, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Hooper turned in a promising 2nd season, hauling in 49 of 65 targets (75.4% catch rate) for 526 yards and 3 scores. He's capable of making another leap in 2018. The question is whether there are enough targets to turn Hooper into a TE1. He ranked just 17th among TEs in targets last year and now has to contend with 1st-round rookie WR Calvin Ridley joining Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) is out for Saturday’s game against the Panthers. We still don’t have any details on his injury, but Atlanta hasn't placed him on IR. Levine Toilolo will operate as the Falcons’ lead TE this weekend but isn’t a fantasy option.

The Falcons added TE Austin Hooper in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft.  He goes 6'4, 254 pounds with a SPARQ score in the 59th percentile.  Hooper didn't post big numbers in Stanford's run-heavy offense but showed plenty of pass-catching upside when given a shot.  He even lined up out wide or in the slot on 44% of his snaps.  Hooper needs to improve his hands, though, after dropping nearly 11% of his catchable targets.  He could quickly zoom by Jacob Tamme and Levine Toilolo to the top of Atlanta's depth chart and eventually emerge as a top-3 option in the passing game.
