Falcons' Austin Hooper ready for next step

Atlanta Falcons contract-year tight end Austin Hooper is "ready to go to another level" with his play in 2019, believes head coach Dan Quinn.

What It Means:

“He is a threat in this offense,” added respected position coach Mike Mularkey, who the Falcons brought in this offseason to coach tight ends. Hooper set career-bests across the board in 2018 with 71 receptions for 660 yards and 4 touchdowns.

numberFire's models expect Hooper to catch 59.6 passes on 74.0 targets for 549.6 yards and 5.75 touchdowns in 2019. He's currently the TE11 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
