  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: One reception in loss

    Hooper caught one pass for 14 yards on two targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Chiefs.

    Hooper wasn't targeted until the fourth quarter Sunday, while fellow tight end Michael Mayer saw four looks from quarterback Aidan O'Connell throughout the contest. Hooper figures to remain Las Vegas' No. 2 TE option when the Raiders return from their bye against the Vikings in Week 14.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Targeted once in road loss

    Hooper was unable to catch his only target in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Dolphins.

    Hooper played 29 of a possible 61 offensive snaps Sunday, but rookie Michael Mayer earned five targets on the way to a 4-46-0 line. Mayer remains the only Raiders tight end worth rostering, as Hooper likely continues to serve primarily as a blocker against the Chiefs in Week 12.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Makes one reception on SNF

    Hooper caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 16-12 win over the Jets.

    Hooper managed to overcome a minor calf injury that limited him in practice this past Wednesday and Thursday, but he was overshadowed by fellow tight end Michael Mayer on Sunday Night Football as the rookie played 56 of a possible 64 offensive snaps and caught his first career touchdown in the process. Hooper figures to retain the No. 2 TE role for Las Vegas against the Dolphins in Week 11.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Cleared for Sunday

    Hooper (calf) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday night's game against the Jets.

    Hooper was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but a full session Friday on his part set the stage for the tight end to be available Sunday. Over the course of nine games, Hooper has recorded just 13 catches for 128 yards, a modest rate of production that keeps him off the fantasy radar in most formats.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Limited by calf injury

    Hooper was limited practice participant Wednesday due to a calf injury.

    Hooper now has two chances to upgrade to full participation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets. That said, with just 13 catches for 128 yards through nine games, Hooper is mostly off the fantasy radar while working in a timeshare at tight end with rookie second-round pick Michael Mayer.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Targeted once in win

    Hooper caught his only target for 10 yards in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Giants.

    Hooper continues to play behind rookie tight end Michael Mayer, but neither option has been able to reach significant fantasy relevance as Josh Jacobs, Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers remain focal points. Hooper figures to take a back seat to Mayer again versus the Jets in Week 10.

  • Raiders' Austin Hooper: Two grabs in loss

    Hooper caught both of his targets for 19 yards in Monday's 26-14 loss to the Lions.

    Hooper played just 10 of the Raiders' 46 offensive snaps Monday, with his 22 percent snap share going down as his lowest rate of the season. With rookie tight end Michael Mayer having emerged as the team's top option at the position, Hooper has become an afterthought in the team's offensive scheme. Hooper will likely continue in a backup role going forward, barring an injury to Mayer.
