Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper posted three grabs for 33 yards on five targets in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Hooper was sidelined nearly a month due to an appendectomy, and he has been slow to return to form. The weather has also been against him and the pass attack, so that doesn't help. Treat him as more of a low-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 at Jacksonville.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper was good for just one catch for 11 yards on two targets in Week 10 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Hooper was sidelined nearly a month after an emergency appendectomy in late October. He's back, but this was his first game of the season without at least two grabs. Fantasy owners will want to avoid Hooper until he starts to be more productive again. The Browns host the Eagles in Week 11.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendix) said he is feeling great after undergoing an appendectomy a few weeks ago.
Huddle Up: Hooper appears to be on track to play this this week, but fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He may see a few more targets with Odell Beckham Jr. out and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendix) participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Hooper is coming off an appendectomy a few weeks ago and should be available for the Week 10 game. He has posted at least 50 yards in each of his last two games and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendectomy) will 'definitely' be able to play in Week 10 versus the Houston Texans, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Huddle Up: Hooper's return is a big deal for the Browns, especially in light of Odell Beckham Jr.'s season-ending knee injury. With Jarvis Landry still gutting out multiple injuries that figure to bother him for the remainder of 2020, it is conceivable Hooper will lead the team in targets moving forward. Given the state of the position in fantasy, he could be a top-five option over the remainder of the season.
