Draft note
by John Paulsen
He’s a bit on the boring side, but Austin Hooper finished No. 6 last year and has increased his targets, receptions and yards in each of the last two seasons. He’s a good bet to garner five-plus targets in a pretty good passing attack in any given week.

ATL TE Austin Hooper - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In Week 16, Hooper finished with seven receptions on nine targets for 82 scoreless yards, 78 air yards, 20% of the team targets, and 20% of the team air yards.

The Falcons are out of the playoff picture but they were essentially out of the picture after a 1-7 start to their season. Monitor Week 17 news closely, but the Falcons are planning on playing their starters at the time of writing this blurb. It is unknown how long the starters will play but the starters could play the majority of the game if it stays competitive. This matchup has one of the highest over/unders (48) of the week.

Hooper will look to have another successful game against a mediocre Tampa Bay defense that is ranked eighteenth best against tight ends, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Hooper ranked as the half PPR TE3 and is a safe start.
