General News (Wed Sep 18): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Week 3: at Los Angeles Chargers

All WR vs LAC

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Deshaun Watson and the Texans passing offense put forth a meager effort against the Jaguars in Week 2. Watson completed just over 50 percent of his passes for only 159 yards with no touchdowns. He continues to take a beating behind this struggling offensive line as Watson went down four more times last week, bringing his sack total up to a league-leading 10 on the season. DeAndre Hopkins was held to just 40 yards with a long reception of only 14 yards as he struggled against tight coverage--a rare sight from an elite receiver like Hopkins. Will Fuller saw a big bump in targets in Week 2, but his production still lacked last week. Keke Coutee made his season debut after missing Week 1 with an injury, but he was not heavily involved and will compete for snaps in the slot with Kenny Stills as they split relatively evenly last week. Running back Duke Johnson Jr. was shut out of the passing game last week as well, which is a concern as that seems to be his primary source of value with Carlos Hyde eating up the rushing attempts. Johnson's snap count was down last week, but his usage through should be relatively game script dependent. The Chargers secondary suffered yet another blow last week as safety Adrian Phillips broke his arm and will miss several weeks. Phillips was playing in place of star safety Derwin James and has been a key piece of the Chargers secondary, so this will be a heavily felt loss. With cornerback Trevor Williams still sidelined with a knee injury, this secondary has become much thinner than anyone would have thought coming into the season. They still have one of the top slot cornerbacks in the league in Desmond King, who should make it tough on Keke Coutee and Kenny Stills this week. Casey Hayward Jr. is also a stout matchup for any opposing receiver and should shadow DeAndre Hopkins this week. Will Fuller should have a good matchup against second-year cornerback Brandon Facyson though, as Facsyon has given up over 2.5 yards per route covered and nearly a 75 percent catch rate in his limited time on the field. Safety will be a clear weakness as well, opening up the chances for some big plays by this Texans receiving corps.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs JAX (8 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec)

Hopkins ran into his arch-nemesis in Jalen Ramsey, who has had the most success covering him over the years. Hopkins had two receptions over 10 yards for 14 and 13 yards. He did have one target over 20+ yards, but it was not close to being completed. Hipkins did most of his work underneath against Ramsey but it, like most of the Texans skill players, a slow day at the office.

2019 Week 1 vs NO (13 / 8 / 111 / 2 rec)

It should have been a bigger day than what it was for Deandre Hopkins. Hopkins dropped three passes in the first half but woke up in the second half looking like the Hopkins many know. Catching touchdown passes for 2 yards and 16 yards, Hopkins continues to do his work when asked. His best reception came on a pass late in the 4th quarter down the left side line for 38-yards to set up a touchdown pass the next play.
