The Cleveland Browns are looking to extend their winning streak to three games against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. Cleveland has been a run-first team in 2020. That's hurt the fantasy football of several pass catchers, including Austin Hooper.
Fantasy Football analysis: Browns TE Austin Hooper
Hopper only has seven receptions for 62 yards so far this season and ranks fourth on the browns in catches and targets (10). Kareem Hunt has one more target than Hooper, who is also behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry in the pecking order. OBJ is dealing with a back injury and was limited in practice on Thursday. Hunt didn’t practice at all on Thursday because of a groin injury. If these two miss time, I’d expect the offensive focus to shift to Jarvis Landry and Nick Chubb.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit Hooper. The Browns are a running team and prefer throwing to several other target over him.
