What You Need to Know:

  • Despite a high-end contract, Hooper continued to disappoint in ’21 (38-345-3).
  • His only missed game came on the COVID list.
  • Hooper was held without a catch in 2 games.
  • He recorded only 2 TE1 weeks — Week 10 and Week 14.
  • A mark of 1.14 yards per route run ranked 22nd among 25 TEs with 50+ targets.
  • He simply wasn’t a play-maker: Hooper’s 9.1 YPC, 65.5% catch rate and 61.8 PFF receiving grade all fell below career averages.
  • Hooper’s never topped 6 TDs across 6 pro seasons.
  • In March, Cleveland assigned the franchise tag to David Njoku and released Hooper.
  • Hooper landed a 1-year, $6 million deal with Tennessee soon thereafter.
  • After losing Jonnu Smith in free agency last year, Titans TEs (Anthony Firkser, Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt) combined for 101 targets (19%). Firkser led the way with 43 looks in 15 games.
  • Ryan Tannehill returns for year 4 with the Titans. He’s an upgrade on Baker Mayfield, but Tannehill’s hardly a major selling point.
  • Tennessee swapped out A.J. Brown for Robert Woods and rookie Treylon Burks. Woods is coming off a November ACL tear but should be ready for Week 1. Burks is a potential RZ factor at 6'2, 225.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Hooper was a free-agent flop in Cleveland. He landed in a fine spot to soak up snaps with the Titans, but there’s just not much value to mine in a low-volume pass offense. We'd look elsewhere for TE2 help.

Ryan Tannehill, QB TEN

9:07pm EST 12/21/22

Ryan Tannehill "very likely" done for the season

Titans insider Paul Kuharsky hears that QB Ryan Tannehill is "very likely" done for the season with an ankle injury that may require surgery. Tannehill has hurt this right ankle twice this season -- but was surprisingly allowed to re-enter last week's loss to the Chargers. His absence leaves QB Malik Willis at the controls the rest of the way. The rookie made 2 starts the first time Tannehill went down, TOTALING 135 passing yards on 26 attempts. Tennessee will go as run-heavy as possible with Willis, tanking the fantasy value of pass catchers like TE Chig Okonkwo and WR Treylon Burks.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. That leaves Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as Tennessee's top 2 WRs once again -- and keeps TEs Chig Okonkwo and Austin Hooper in play for fantasy lineups.

Titans TE Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. That leaves Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as Tennessee’s top 2 WRs – and could mean more targets for TEs Austin Hooper and Chig Okonkwo.

Titans TE Austin Hooper (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. Hooper has been a non-factor in fantasy so far, but his absence could free up a few targets for Tennessee's WRs.

Browns TE David Njoku (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Njoku’s absence would be a slight boost for TEs Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant.
