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.

Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE TEN

8:17am EDT 6/16/22

Okonkwo on a roll

Titans rookie TE Chig Okonkwo has been a standout in minicamp, catching 4 TDs over the last 2 days, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website. Okonkwo is undersized at just 6'3, 238 pounds but led all TEs at the Combine with a 4.52-second 40 time. He projects as a catch-first TE with some intriguing fantasy upside. Austin Hooper remains the favorite to lead Titans TEs in fantasy points this season, but Okonkwo is worth keeping an eye on this summer.

The Titans are signing former Browns TE Austin Hooper to a 1-year, $6 million deal. It's a nice landing spot for Hooper on a roster who's top remaining TE had been Geoff Swaim. We'll see whether Tennessee adds anyone else significant and what they do at WR, but Hooper's a solid option late in current best-ball fantasy football drafting.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Browns are releasing TE Austin Hooper (with a post-June 1 designation). That will send Hooper to a free-agent market that has seen little TE movement in the early days. His departure leaves room for David Njoku to take over the lead TE spot, with 3rd-year TE Harrison Bryant behind him. Njoku has remained a solid value in best-ball drafting since re-signing with Cleveland. We'll see how much his ADP climbs with the Hooper news. Fowler says the Browns planned to keep Hooper but that acquiring WR Amari Cooper and pursuing QB Deshaun Watson changed the cap situation.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Browns plan to keep TE Austin Hooper around, despite using the franchise tag to keep TE David Njoku of the free-agent market. Hooper has 1 year left on his contract at a $13.25 million cap hit, according to Spotrac. Even cutting him, though, would mean $7.5 million in dead cap space. Having Hooper, Njoku and Harrison Bryant all on the roster once again would make it tough for any to provide consistent fantasy production. Don't overrate any of them in early fantasy football drafts.

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Hooper hasn’t shown much of a fantasy ceiling since 2019 in Atlanta. He'll see starter-level snaps in Tennessee after signing a 1-year, $6 million deal. We just don't see the upside in the Titans run-first offense.
