CLE TE Austin Hooper - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Texans

Hooper had a disappointing game against the Chiefs, catching all three of his targets for only 27 yards. While he led tight ends with a 64.41% snap rate, he had a lower target share (11.11%) than fellow tight end David Njoku (18.52% ). Njoku finished second on the team with 102 air yards, so it's clear that the young tight end is knocking on the door for some fantasy relevance. There's a chance that Njoku's emergence can really put a dent in Hooper's fantasy value.

While the Texans defense struggled in virtually every facet of the game last year, they did do a good job defending tight ends, ranking 9th in aFPA last season. However, they did allow Jaguars' tight end David O'Shaughnessy to catch 6-of-8 targets for 48 yards. Having said that, it's hard to trust Hooper in this spot while he's contending for targets with Njoku. There are a lot of mouths to feed in this offense, even with OBJ sidelined and especially in this run-heavy game script.
