  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins played with injury    Mon Jan 20, 04:33 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (rib) suffered a broken rib during the Divisional Round playoff game but continued to play in the game.

Footballguys view: Hopkins played 77-of-80 snaps against the Chiefs in the Divisional Round, finishing with nine catches for 118 yards. He's a freak athlete and certainly showed his toughness in that contest.

  Texans | Houston blows big lead, falls in Kansas City    Sun Jan 12, 06:31 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 31-of-52 passes for 388 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 51-31 AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, as the team blew a 24-0 lead. RB Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 44 yards, while Watson also added 37 yards and a score. WR DeAndre Hopkins ended up with nine grabs for 118 yards on a game-high 14 targets. WR Will Fuller was a nice secondary option with 89 yards on five catches, while WR Kenny Stills posted three receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. TE Darren Fells also had three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. RB Duke Johnson also chipped in with 11 rushing yards and five grabs for 23 yards. CB Lonnie Johnson also had a blocked kick return for touchdown in the first quarter while totaling four solo tackles.

Footballguys view: Watson was gifted a 24-0 lead but then turned into a deer in the headlights like his teammates as the game quickly slipped away. The stats were great in a perfect fantasy football game script, but this game will be remembered as an all-time collapse. The Texans are unlikely to make any majors this offseason and will be without their first and third round picks in the draft.

  Texans | Houston's Week 17 injury report    Fri Dec 27, 03:58 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans. WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) did not practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable. S Jahleel Addae (Achilles), LB Jake Martin (knee), WR Kenny Stills (knee), OT Laremy Tunsil (ankle), QB Deshaun Watson (back) and CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. LBs Brennan Scarlett (Achilles) and Benardrick McKinney (concussion) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Hopkins and Watson being questionable opens the door to them sitting or playing only a token drive or two. The Steelers can't be feeling good about having their hopes ride on the Texans this week.

  Texans | Houston's injury report for Week 16    Thu Dec 19, 04:37 PM

Houston Texans LB Jake Martin (knee) and LB Benardrick McKinney (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. S Jahleel Addae (Achilles), WR Will Fuller (hamstring), RB Carlos Hyde (ankle, non-injury), RB Taiwan Jones (hamstring) and LB Brennan Scarlett (Achilles, shoulder) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 19, and are listed as questionable. TE Darren Fells (hand) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) practiced in full Thursday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Martin has been adding some pass rush punch lately and will be missed. Fuller's hamstring is still affecting him to some extent, but the Bucs matchup is compelling enough to make him a WR3/Flex this week as long as he's active Saturday.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: Hopkins, like Deshaun Watson, benefited from the return of Will Fuller. He is poised to be one of the two or three most valuable fantasy receivers in the playoffs, although he'll get a lot of Stephon Gilmore next week against New England.

He has been coming up small for fantasy but a breakthrough could be coming at any time with Deshaun Watson playing well and Will Fuller stretching the field.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for a team-high 41 yards on eight targets in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Hopkins also threw an interceptions. He hasn't lived up to ADP and the expectations created by his excellent Week 1. Chances are Hopkins will get right soon unless Deshaun Watson gets hurt so he's a buy low heading into a matchup with Atlanta.
