Summary

DeAndre Hopkins is a Top 3 fantasy wide receiver who has shown the ability to produce regardless of who is under center for the Texans. However, in the two years with Deshaun Watson, Hopkins has finished 1st and 2nd respectively. He has proven that he can perform at a high level on multiple routes against Grade-A corners and in multiple game scripts. He is the current top wide receiver option in redraft leagues thanks to four consecutive years of 150 targets and double-digit touchdowns in three of the last four seasons. In 2018 he had 11 games of 10+ targets with seven 100-yard games. His consistent ability and elite success with Watson cements him as one of the best fantasy wide receivers in redraft leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins living large inside (Tue Jun 18, 09:46 PM) - Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins averaged 3.11 yards per route run from the slot in 2018, the third-highest average among qualified receivers per Pro Football Focus.

Our View: It's not news to say that Hopkins is really good. Everybody knows that, and the advanced data (of course) backs that up. Hopkins ran 118 routes from the slot in 2018, he was targeted on 35 of those routes and came up with 32 catches for 411 yards and four touchdowns.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins played through pain (Sun Jun 9, 01:06 PM) - Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said Saturday, June 8, he endured a tough season in 2018 in which he had to deal with nagging pain from foot and shoulder injuries and overcome mental hurdles. 'Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally,' Hopkins told the Houston Chronicle. 'It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn't.'

Our View: Hopkins production never dipped, and that included long stretches without credible #2 or #3 options on the field. If he and Deshaun Watson stay healthy this year, Hopkins could set new career highs. He deserves to be the first wide receiver off of the board in fantasy drafts, but will face competition from Davante Adams for that honor.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins should be ready for camp (Sat Jun 8, 05:02 PM) - Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) has been recovering from an ankle injury this offseason but should be ready for the start of training camp.

Our View: Hopkins fought through injuries last season but is expected to be 100 percent healthy for Week 1. He's a no-brainer WR1 and an option to be a top-5 pick in fantasy drafts of any format. His current ADP is WR2 (1.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
