Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs BUF (6 / 5 / 63 / 1 rec)
It was a slow day at the office for the offense but DeAndre Hopkins continues to find ways to make plays. His 12-yard touchdown reception got the scoring going for the Texans on a nice corner route on a well placed ball from Watson. Hopkins also had a 24-yard reception from the slot that only saw one spin move but it was a key play in the drive to tie the game up in the 4th quarter. Hopkins continues to be a menace in the 10-19 yard range, he had receptions for 24, 14, 13 and 12 creating easy throws for Watson with his precise route running.
2018 Week 5 vs DAL (13 / 9 / 151 / 0 rec)
What can you say about a player that is moving into the elite realm of the wide receiver position. He continues to change games and when Deshaun Watson needs a big play, the ball is coming to him. Hopkins had a 49 yard reception that set up the game winning field goal. That play showcased his complete skill set, hands catch and a couple of spins to get downfield. Hopkins had a red zone target but the ball was thrown short allowing the defender to break up the pass. Hopkins did his damage in the 10-19 yard range catching seven passes that were more than 10+ yards. Hopkins is a catching machine and even with the added wide receivers around him, he is primary target of an offense that has no issues gaining yards.
2018 Week 4 vs IND (12 / 10 / 169 / 1 rec)
Hopkins is growing into the elite status and this season he is doing even more for the offense and he was a key player in Sunday's win. Putting up 169 receiver yards, Hopkins continues to get open in the middle of the field and eat up yards after the catch. Even more impressive is the amount of chunk plays Hopkins is producing and he had from reception for 20+ yards against the Colts for 24, 24, 30 and 31. Hopkins hauled in an easy pitch and catch in a red zone situation on a jump ball but he missed a game winner in overtime where he had a great double move to get open and couldn't hang on to the pass when he hit the ground in the end zone. The bigger thing is realizing Hopkins is going to continue to get fed the football and he is going to continue putting up strong numbers week to week.
2018 Week 3 vs NYG (10 / 6 / 86 / 0 rec)
Despite the uptick in targets for Will Fuller, DeAndre Hopkins is still getting his on the field. Hopkins had a touchdown rception wiped out due to a holding penalty which would have it a much more productive day. Hopkins averaged 14.3 yards a reception and when given a chance in open field he had catches for 20 and 24 yards. One aspect of Hopkins game that is growing is his ability to run after the catch and that was something that he really didn't do as a receiver. Hopkins is going to continue to get his in the passing game so don't fret with the emergence of Fuller.
2018 Week 2 vs TEN (11 / 6 / 110 / 1 rec)
It was another solid game for DeAndre Hopkins and this time he was able to cap off his strong day with a 28 yard touchdown reception. Hopkins had 6 receptions on the day and did majority of his damage deep catching passed for 23, 28 and 31. He was targeted but he was double covered from the jump and the ball was picked off despite being forced to Hopkins. Hopkins had very catchable passes thrown his way and he rewarded Watson with a 110 yards trough the air. Hopkins continues to be the top target in the passing game.
2018 Week 1 vs NE (11 / 8 / 78 / 0 rec, 1 / -7 / 0 rush)
DeAndre Hopkins was blanketed by Stephone Gilmore all game but he was able to produce 8 catches with his longest being 17. Hopkins remained the Texans primary target in the passing game and even when Deshaun Watson was struggling, the offense adjusted and moved Hopkins to the slot. With that simple move it opened up easier throws to hit Hopkins. There was not many yards after the catch but the Texans will continue to feed him the ball at all costs.
