TE Sleepers

 

Henry, Hunter - LAC

Henry, Hunter

Hunter Henry had an exceptional rookie season in 2016, and we expect him to build on that performance this season. He is expected to be the No. 1 tight end for the Chargers, ahead of veteran Antonio Gates, but Gates being back with the team does lower Henry's Fantasy value, even slightly. Still, Henry was the No. 11 Fantasy tight end in 2016 with 36 catches for 478 yards and eight touchdowns on 54 targets, and he had nine games with at least seven Fantasy points in a standard league. We expect him to be more involved with his catches and yards, and he should continue to be relevant in the red zone, even with Gates back in the mix. Henry is worth drafting with a mid-round pick in all leagues, and he should have the chance for a breakout campaign in his sophomore year this season and figures to be a fantasy TE1 on someone's roster in your league.


Hooper, Austin - ATL

Hooper, Austin

Austin Hooper didn't do much as a rookie, but what he did do should help him get a shot at becoming a quality Fantasy tight end in 2017. Hooper caught 70.4 percent of his targets and scored in two of three games with at least five targets. Provided the Falcons tight end corps thins out this offseason, Hooper should assume a starting role and pick up much more work than before. As a group, Falcons tight ends collected 83 targets and 10 touchdowns last season -- hopefully those numbers rise and tilt in Hooper's favor. You could justify spending a final-round pick on him, especially if you're dedicated to streaming tight ends off waivers and like Hooper's Week 1 matchup. 


Thomas, Julius - MIA

Thomas, Julius

Traded to Miami this offseason, Julius Thomas will attempt to resurrect his career with Adam Gase, who was his playcaller during his heydays in Denver. When asked about Thomas, Gase said he would make "a little bit of a difference" in the offense. To his credit, Thomas is healthy after a couple of injury-plagued seasons in Jacksonville that saw the tight end catch nine touchdowns and average 35.0 yards in 21 games. A touchdown-or-bust tight end with a track record of missing games, Thomas would need to stay healthy and see an uptick in end-zone targets in order to regain some Fantasy value. He's worth a late-round flier as a speculative second tight end, though if you really like the Dolphins' early-season schedule, which isn't too tough, you could conceivably begin with him as your starter. Especially with Cutler on board now.


COOK, JARED - OAK

COOK, JARED

Jared Cook is moving from Green Bay to Oakland, where he'll try to not be a Fantasy letdown. Cook should have put together one of his best seasons yet playing with Aaron Rodgers last year, but injuries limited him to another sub-400 yard season with one touchdown. He did perk up in the postseason, catching 18 of 32 targets for 229 yards and a pair of scores. That's what probably got him work in Oakland, where he'll provide relief in the red zone and in the middle of the field for Derek Carr.  It's another situation where Cook should get some nice stats, but his track record is too well known. He's not worth drafting outside of deep, deep redraft leagues.
