Falcons TE Austin Hooper stayed close to QB Matt Ryan in offseason

Monday, August 6, 2018, 12:32pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

As explained by Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America, TE Austin Hooper remained in Atlanta throughout the offseason, working out consistently with quarterback Matt Ryan.

“Hooper’s been like a dog this offseason — over and over, he’d catch everything Matt threw and bring it back,” coach Dan Quinn told King, who explains that, whenever Ryan was looking for a throwing partner this offseason, Hooper answered the call.

Fantasy Impact:

The team is possibly looking for more out of the TE position, so any offseason chemistry between Hooper and Ryan can only help to boost Hooper's 49-526-3 numbers from last season.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. New Orleans Saints

Matt Ryan rebounded nicely from his poor performance versus the Eagles in Week 1 by completing 23-of-28 passes for 272 yards with two touchdowns, one interception and two additional scores on the ground in a win over the Panthers. His first rushing score came on a goal-line sneak while the second was a gutsy run when he left the pocket on a broken pass play, sprinted towards the end zone and did a half-helicopter while three defenders smashed into him. With one bad and one good game under his belt, Ryan will be a back-end QB1 when the Falcons host the Saints on Sunday. He’s our No. 10 ranked QB for Week 3.
