2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hooker injured his foot during the opening round of the playoffs and wasn't able to suit up when the Colts were eliminated by Kansas City the next week. The 2017 first-round pick is locked in as a starter, sitting on 65 tackles (45 solo), eight passes defensed and five interceptions in 21 career games. His role as a traditional free safety isn't conductive to steady IDP production, but Hooker's strong work in deep coverage makes him quite valuable to the Colts. Read Past Outlooks

December 22, 2019
Hooker (hand) is active for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Panthers.
ANALYSIS
The third-year safety had managed to work back to full practice participation Friday, so his active status isn't entirely surprising. Hooker will therefore be out there in his usual starting free safety spot against Panthers rookie quarterback Will Grier, who'll be making his first NFL start Sunday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
You generally want to target tackle sources among IDPs because of the stability of tackle production relative to sacks or turnovers, but Hooker might be the uncommon safety whose interception production is worth chasing. Hooker's 22 tackles on 410 snaps from last year is a tackle rate nothing less than anemic, but that also gives reason to suspect he can only improve in that regard. Meanwhile, his three interceptions in that play count make it appear as if the ball-hawking skills he showed at Ohio State translate reliably to the NFL level. His recovery from ACL repair warrants monitoring this summer, though.
Hooker was taken by the Colts with the 15th overall pick in the 2017 draft and he's expected to start at safety from day one. A sports hernia cost him OTAs and will prevent him from practicing with the Colts until training camp. Despite the delay, Hooker is a tremendous talent who could produce solid fantasy numbers as a rookie once healthy. Additionally, Hooker will have the benefit of playing alongside Vontae Davis and Darius Butler, quality secondary players that can assist his transition to the NFL.
