Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's unlikely to play against the Bucs this weekend. Jaeden Graham served as Atlanta's lead pass-catching TE last week but isn't a viable fantasy option.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Falcons plan to let TE Austin Hooper reach free agency when the new league year begins in March. We'd bet on that meaning a new team for Hooper, unless Atlanta knows that the TE will find a softer market than he expects. Hooper will still be just 25 when the 2020 season begins, and coming off consecutive seasons of 71+ catches. He enjoyed a career-best TE6 finish in PPR scoring for 2019. The uncertainty of his 2020 offense, however, adds risk to Hooper in early best-ball drafting. Hooper sits TE6 in ADP in both FFPC and BestBall10s drafting so far.
Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) practiced all week and will return for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Hooper was leading his position in PPR and non-PPR points through 10 healthy weeks. He’s right back to high-end TE1 status.
Falcons HC Dan Quinn hinted in a Wednesday radio appearance that TE Austin Hooper (knee) is set to return for this weekend's game against the Panthers. He's been out since Week 10 but was leading all TEs in PPR and non-PPR points up until that point. We'll track Hooper's practice participation over the next few days, but he'll be back to high-end TE1 status unless we hear that he'll be limited vs. Carolina.
