Hooper was the TE6 (PPR) to end 2019 and was running as the TE1 until an injury sidelined him for three weeks. He becomes a free agent on March 18th and the 25 year old remains an integral player on the offense. The Falcons badly need to keep their offense intact as they focus on defensive, along with interior line, fortification via the draft and free agency during the off-season. For Hooper, who amassed 68 receptions for 742 yards and six touchdowns on the year, all signs point to a return to the team prior to reaching free agency. Austin Hooper is found as DLF's TE5.
