Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught nine passes for 106 yards and one touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. He was 12 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Hopkins had a big game that his fantasy teams have been waiting for and if Deshaun Watson wasn't ruled in the grasp on a questionable call, Hopkins might have had a second score. He'll be a top three overall wide receiver play against the Raiders next week.

  Texans | Nine grabs for DeAndre Hopkins    Sun Oct 13, 07:17 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted nine receptions for 55 yards on 12 targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Hopkins didn't have any splash plays but he did come up with some crucial short catches to play a big part in the road win. 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.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins targeted eight times    Sun Sep 29, 05:48 PM

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.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 26.

Footballguys view: As expected, Hopkins starting camp on the PUP list was a non-story. He's a strong candidate to be the first wide receiver off of the board.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins on PUP list    Sun Jul 21, 04:42 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) will begin training camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Hopkins had offseason surgery, so this isn't too alarming. If he isn't on the field by mid-August then we could revise that outlook, but for now this is only something to monitor.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins scoring at will    Wed Jul 10, 10:18 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has scored 24 touchdowns in 31 games since the start of the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: Hopkins is one of the most consistent superstars in the league, regardless of position. In 2018 he had 11 games of 10+ targets with seven 100-yard games. That consistency and elite skill set makes him the top fantasy WR once again. It's not crazy to pick Hopkins up with a top-5 pick in any format. Hopkins has a current ADP of WR1 (1.06) in 12-team PPR 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.

Footballguys 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.'

Footballguys 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.

Footballguys 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.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins set sure-hands record    Sun Feb 10, 02:51 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins set a Pro Football Focus-era record (since 2006) for the most catchable targets (105) without a drop (minimum 40 targets) in 2018.

Footballguys view: Hopkins is one of the most reliable assets in the game, and Fantasy GMs know that he's a set-it-and-forget-it WR1 each week. He'll continue to be the centerpiece of the Texans passing attack in 2019.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins was big part of offense    Wed Jan 16, 11:26 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was targeted 163 times during the regular season while the second highest total on the team was 45 targets.

Footballguys view: The headline can be filed under 'in other news, water is wet.' Hopkins is their passing game, and he's one of the best in the game. The team needs to keep feeding him the rock...and protect QB Deshaun Watson better...in 2019.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins won't need surgery    Sun Jan 6, 02:08 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) had his arm in a sling Sunday, Jan. 6, the day after suffering a Grade # AC joint sprain in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Hopkins said he won't require offseason surgery.

Footballguys view: Great news for Hopkins here. He was limited most of the time on the injury report with various ailments all season long. Hopkins suffered a shoulder injury against the Colts and wasn't quite himself. We'll see him in the offseason program for the Texans and we'll also see Hopkins as a top wide receiver pick in 2019 fantasy drafts this summer.

Footballguys view: Hopkins gave it his all but was banged up in the loss to the Colts. He's a WR1 for Fantasy GMs and a no-brainer starter each and ever week. Expect him to be a first-round pick in PPR leagues this summer.
