2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Hooker (foot) won't require surgery, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan reports.
Hooker tried to play through the injury during the Colts' wild-card game against the Texans, but he ultimately was shut down for last weekend's divisional-round game against the Chiefs. The fact he won't need surgery suggests he isn't dealing with anything severe, and Hooker isn't expected to require an extensive rehab process this offseason.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
