2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the best fantasy tight ends (especially in PPR) over the last two seasons, Austin Hooper joined the Browns this offseason with a record setting contract. Although flush with talent at other skill positions, and ultra-athletic David Njoku already on the roster, Hooper gives Cleveland a reliable option for Mayfield and a calming professional presence for the team. An average blocker, Hooper is still a big improvement over Njoku, and is any improvement along that line is welcome. He's found ways to compile two straight 70+ reception seasons by being a heady, sure handed route runner who identifies holes in the defense. He will be in Stefanski's tight end friendly scheme, and should make a killing on play action waggle and drag routes as Mayfield is an accurate on-the-move passer. With Landry almost assuredly to be eased into the season, Hooper could be the No.2 passing option on the team for the first quarter of the year. While reaching his 73 reception average over the last two seasons is probably on the very high end range of outcomes, Hooper is still going to be a big part of this offense, and is worth a pick as a back-end TE1 option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Austin Hooper should be ready Week 10
Recovering from appendectomy
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 2, 11:30 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said TE Austin Hooper (appendectomy) will definitely be able to face Texans on Nov. 15. (Nate Ulrich on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Odell Beckham Jr. done for the year and Jarvis Landry gutting out multiple injuries that figure to bother him all season, Hooper could conceivably lead the Browns in targets the rest of the way. Given the state of the position in fantasy, he could be a top-five option over the remainder of the season.


Injury Odell Beckham Jr. out for the year with ACL injury
injured in first quarter of Week 7
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 26, 10:48 am

Cleveland Browns
The Browns make it official, as WR Odell Beckham Jr. is out for the season with a torn ACL. His second season shortened by injury. Beckham finishes 2020 with 23 catches for 319 yards and 4 total TDs. And Cleveland is without its top WR. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is a big blow for the Browns offense. Rashard Higgins filled in for Beckham and finished with a 6-110-0 line. Jarvis Landry has been bothered by injuries of his own most of the season but could see an increase in usage. The Browns tight end trio of Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku (assuming he's not traded) could also be a bigger part of the weekly gameplan moving forward.


Injury TE Austin Hooper out for Week 7, appendicitis
Getting appendectomy today
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 23, 12:44 pm

Cleveland Browns
Stefanski says TE Austin Hooper has appendicitis, getting an appendectomy today. Out for Sunday. (Andrew Gribble on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hooper has had at least six targets in every game the last three weeks including a 10-target game in Week 5. In his absence, rookie Harrison Bryant and David Njoku will fill in. Njoku has fallen out of favor with the team making it hard for fantasy owners to trust him.
