Summary

DeAndre Hopkins is the primary receiving threat on the Texans and is one year removed from being considered an elite fantasy receiver. He is more than capable of reaching expectations of a WR1 on your roster, especially if he receives decent quarterback play. Last year Hopkins dropped 31 spots in the rankings to finish 37th, which many people cite Brock Osweiler's sub-par play as the reason. Despite the down year, Hopkins finished with 151 targets which was 7th most in the league. The target volume didn't decline, but his yardage totals and failure to consistently get into the end zone did. Many believe rookie Deshaun Watson will be an improvement over Osweiler, which should result in a bounce back season for Hopkins. The degree of Hopkins' level of improvement is dependent on his ability to mesh with Watson, especially in the red zone. (May 20)

Texans | Bill O'Brien to be more 'hands on' in 2017 (Thu Jun 15, 03:43 PM) - John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans head coach Bill O'Brien wants to be more 'hands on' in 2017. "I think one of the changes that needed to be made this year was for me to be more hands-on," O'Brien said Wednesday. "That's really what I love to do -- coach the players and be around the players. I love coaching these players."

Our View: O'Brien has to be starting to feel the heat given the failures of the offense during his tenure. We think he can improve its output but that will come down to the play of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. If he implodes, O'Brien will likely take the fall. Honestly, anything less than superb play over the next two years might not help O'Brien if the Texans don't get more than a cup of coffee in the playoffs. One and done with this defense is unacceptable.
