View TE Fantasy Rankings »

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.

Treylon Burks, WR TEN

10:00pm EST 11/13/22

Burks quiet in return

Titans WR Treylon Burks caught 3 balls for 24 yards Sunday in his 1st action since suffering a toe injury back in Week 4. His 6 targets checked in 4th on the team, but Burks tied WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine for 2nd most routes, trailing only WR Robert Woods. We'd bet on more production for the rookie than Westbrook-Ikhine the rest of the way, in spite of the latter's big performance against Denver. Tennessee's run-leaning offense limits the upside, of course. Woods and TE Austin Hooper tied for 2nd on the team with 7 targets Sunday. Hooper caught 5 balls for 41 yards. Woods managed only 2 receptions for 10 yards.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill went just 13-of-20 passing for 132 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts. WR Robert Woods led the team with just 4 targets. He, TE Austin Hooper and RB Derrick Henry caught 3 passes apiece to tie for the team lead. K Randy Bullock handled all the offensive scoring, with 4 FGs and 1 extra point. Tennessee's lone TD came on a 76-yard INT return. Tannehill left briefly with a right-ankle injury but said afterward that he hopes to play in Week 8 against Houston.

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.

Titans TE Austin Hooper trailed teammate Geoff Swaim in both snaps (69% vs. 62%) and targets (4-2) in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Swaim turned his 4 looks into a 3-19 receiving line, with Hooper catching just 1 ball for 6 yards. Rookie TE Chig Okonkwo added 1 catch for 11 yards and a carry for minus-4 while playing 15% of snaps. This looks like a committee situation to avoid as much as possible in fantasy football lineups.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler believes Titans TE Austin Hooper “should see a healthy red-zone [target] share.” Hooper’s never topped 6 TDs in a season. But he joined a Titans squad this summer that lost ~45 red zone targets to trade (A.J. Brown) and free agency. QB Ryan Tannehill has also posted a top-3 TD rate in 2 of the past 3 seasons (2019 and 2020). Ultimately, Hooper enters the year as a TE2.
