Falcons TE Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited in practice all week, though, after playing a season-low 51% of the offensive snaps last Sunday. It’s worth noting that Hooper only practiced on Friday last week. He’s seemingly healthier now but still comes with elevated risk in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee, ankle) was limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through these injuries last week but set season lows in targets (1) and snap rate (51%). Unless Hooper gets in a full workout on Friday, he'll be a shaky Week 16 fantasy play.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee, ankle) only got in a limited practice on Friday but isn’t listed on the final injury report. That suggests the injuries aren’t a major concern. Hooper remains a relatively safe low-end TE1 for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

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.
