Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Per Kevin Stefanski, Hooper is expected to play, but the late kickoff on Sunday night makes things tough.
CLE TE Austin Hooper - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Austin Hooper saw a whopping 15 targets in Week 16, in large part due to the fact that the Browns were missing essentially their entire wide receiver room due to COVID issues. Hooper managed to catch seven of those targets for 71 scoreless yards. Hooper is not going to see 15 targets again this week with those receivers returning to the lineup, but he continues to maintain a modest role in the Cleveland passing game that keeps him on the fantasy radar due to his decent floor and the fact that he gets looks near the goal line. Even so, Hooper will be tough to trust this week against a Steelers defense that is among the top five most difficult for opposing tight ends in the league.
